Christmas is for Kids - Special Needs Children Blog Hop for 6th November 2nd day

Welcome everyone to my Blog. 
 I would like to say a big thank you to Ellen at Cardmonkey http://cardmonkey-business.blogspot.com/  for hosting this blog hop as its for such a good cause and I hope everyone who visits the blog hop enjoys seeing all the banners as much as the Kids will when they received them to hang in their hospital ward.

Now if you have come from Carol Carlson http://cardstockscissorsandglue.blogspot.com/ then you have come to the right place, but if you want to start from the beginning, please click on Ellen at Cardmonkey link above and you can get the whole blog hop addresses to visit.

We have all donated Christmas banners for these special kids in hospital, ages from newborn to 21, who reside at Pediatric Specialty Care (www.pediatricspecialty.com) a group home for medically - fragile, technologically-dependent children in Bucks County, Pennsylvania. 

I have made a banner from recycled cards (doing my bit for the environment at the same time) which I have embellished myself, with glitter, gems, white flowersoft for the snow, flowers and used gold ribbon to put it all together. I have used the theme of snow globes, which really could be used during any winter holiday time as a banner.

This is my Christmas / Holiday banner 

And there's BLOG CANDY to be had!!  THANK YOU to our generous sponsors who have provided prizes to those who hop along. Here are our sponsors and their prizes:
