 Bunnies and Blossom Banners for Kids Blog Hop~March 24 and 25
Day 1


Today and tomorrow (March 24-25), 30+fantastic paper crafters have come together to create Spring-themed banners.They will then donate these banners to Ellen (CardMonkey), who works asAdmissions Coordinator at Pediatric Specialty Care (PSC), www.pediatricspecialty.com

1. Ellen ♥ CardMonkey - http://cardmonkey-business.blogspot.com/


PSC is a long-term care facility for specialneeds children who are medically-fragile and/or technologically-dependent. The babies, children and youths at PSC range in age from birth to 21, and are admitted from all over the country. 
Some are infants, born prematurely and before their lungs have had a chance to mature. Others have serious birth defects,illnesses or injuries from accidents that cause them to need tender loving care in a home-like environment -- many for their lifetimes.
Our banners are meant to cheer the young patients, their families, and the staff at PSC. Here is the banner that I made and will be sending to Ellen to decorate a child's room:

Now for my Day 1 banner:
I created today's banner using a SVG pattern called Tulips from Designs on Cloud 9, which can be found here.







We DO have a tasty bit of blog candy to thank you for visiting us today! What's the prize??! 

How about a beautiful handmade (courtesy of our Blog Hop Hostess, CardMonkey!) Cricut Cozy Covers?! Each one is individually styled in your pick of colors and embroidered words! These are RARE because CardMonkey does not make them for sale and she usually sticks to paper, not sewing!!
