Labor of Love Halloween Blog Hop - 2nd - 4th September 2011

This fabulous hop is to help  the kids at Pediatric Specialty Care in Bucks County, PA USA.  Thanks to all that are participating and a bigger thank you to Funky cards for organising this great hop. Please take your time to go through the hop and see all the fantastic banners that everyone have made and also posted to Funky Cards to take to the Hospital to hang up in the ward. These kids are going to be so over the moon, and excited to have all these banners around putting smiles on their faces is what its all about.
These are the pictures of my banner and a card that I made with the Serif Card Maker computer programme, some glitter, brads and hours of cutting out applies and pumpkins, but it was all fun. I use metal rings so that this banner can be used over and over without the cards coming apart.

My Card also made on Serif Craft Artist.

Here is the line up of  which blogs are participating, please visit them and 'm sure that everyone would love to read your comments.

You can link a card to the blog below so the kids can each get a card and the hoppers can be

 eligible  for one of the sponsor's prizes for doing this. Here is the link to the blog  


Your next stop should be : http://www.cardmonkey-business.blogspot.com/  where there is candy, so check out cardmonkey- business. blog.
Thanks for stopping by and hope this hop brought a smile to your day.
