Love Bug Banners for Kids Hop

Welcome to the “Love Bugs Banners for Kids” Hop.

Forty very talented crafty people have come together for a two day hop (Friday, January 6th and Saturday, January 7th) to showcase handmade banners that will be donated to the children at Pediatric Specialty Care. The hope of these banners is that they bring smiles to these children's faces and awareness of Pediatric Specialty Care to all those that hop along.

The “Love Bugs Banners for Kids” Hop has some awesome sponsors and prizes to give away to all those that hop along and leave comments. The more blogs you visit and leave comments at, the more chances you have of winning. That means if you hop through all 20 blogs each day and leave a comment on each blog then you are in the drawing 40 times!

Our Generous Sponsors are:

Jellypark Digital Stamps will award 2 free digi-images to one winner.

K Andrews Designs has donated a stamp set to one winner.

Robyn's Fetish will donate FIVE digital images of the winner's choice as a prize!

Now on with the hop....If you have come from Edwina's Creations then you are on the right track but if you have come here by chance – great! but please start from the beginning at Ellen - Card Monkey and continue through from there.

I found my images that I printed off on my color printer at Lettering Delights.

I love using Mod Podge or the Martha Stewart decoupage glue on projects because it makes the colors brighter and bolder and the paper more durable for frequent handling.

I just recently read an article that exclaimed that Doilies are the "in" craft thing right now which is good for me since I have always loved using them and have a box full.

I used glitter Mod Podge for the center of my doilie.

Thank you for joining us today on our “Love Bug Banner for Kids” Hop for the children of Pediatric Specialty Care. Please continue on to Lady Luvbug's Blog blog and have a wonderful day.
