Christmas is for Kids Banner Blog Hop

Hello to all my Blogland Friends

If you have arrived here from Debbie you are on the right track.

Today is the second day of our Christmas is for Kids Banner blog hop.  If you remember we did one similar to this in September for Halloween and all participants in the blog hop sent their banners & cards to Ellen "Cardmonkey" Jarvis to take into Paediatric Speciality Care Unit where she works in the USA.  These banners were hung over each of the children's beds.  They also received a card each too.

We have some fantastic blog candy on offer too from 3 fabulous companies who are sponsoring this blog hop.  They are

MelJen's Designs are offer 4 free digi downloads

Happy Scrapper are offering one lucky winner $20 to spend on their website by giving the winner a code to use.

MeiFlower are also offering $32 voucher to use on their website.

So without further ado, here is my Banner and Cards.

As you can see my banner is bauble shaped with cute little bunnies on them.  I have taken these images from My Craft Studio Papercraft Library Volume 9 Christmas with Bunnie Snuffles & Friends.  In total there are 6 baubles which I have sprayed with Crafter's Companion Spray & Sparkle Iridescent.  I have decoupaged the bunnies and added a bell with florist ribbon to each bauble and then threaded them together with red and gold ribbon.

In total I made 6 cards and each card replicates each of the baubles on the banners.  I have taken A6 cards and added glitter card which I have first embossed using my snowflake embossing folder with the Cuttlebug.  Attached the topper which has also been sprayed with Crafter's Companion Spray & Sparkle Iridescent.  I have attached a greeting and a bow with a little bell attached too.

Now it is time to continue on with the hop to Rachelle and see what she has created for this fantastic blog hop.  Don't forget to leave a comment on everyones blog to be in with a chance to win one of the amazing blog candy on offer.

Thank you so much for hopping by today and I hope you have enjoyed your stay, please leave a comment as I love to read them.

Hi Linda! I've already received your banner here in the States, and plan to take it early on Monday to Pediatric Specialty Care so they can see how fabulous it really is!! Your picture, while lovely, barely does it justice. The banner is ADORABLE.

Thank you ever so much for participating in this special cause Hop. Please know how loved the children at our "home" will feel knowing that friends around the world think of them in their struggle to live. May you always feel the joy and love you've given, in your heart and from those you respect.
