Banners for Kids: Bunnies and Blossoms March 24-25

We are a group of compassionate and caring women that come together quarterly to have a BLOG HOP that shows the banners that we have designed, made and donated to the Pediatric Specialty Care Center. The banners are hung in the rooms of special needs, medically-fragile children at Pediatric Specialty Care ( in Bucks County, PA -- where Hop Coordinator Ellen (Card Monkey) Jarvis works as Admissions Coordinator. I am glad you stopped by today to join us in the hop and if you came from the talented Ashley of The Glamourous Side of Scrapping you are heading in the right direction, if you would like to join us please go to Ellen of Card Monkey and start the hop there.
For my banner I used Fancy Pants It's Your Day Paper collection, it is a birthday collection but I think it so bright and cheerful that I used it for my banners and blossoms. My banner, blossoms, butterflies and bunnies are all made from chipboard. I added large buttons tied with ribbon to the center of my flowers.
I cut my bunny from kraft paper and then used chalks to chalk up the bunny to give it character, I all did all the details with a Le Pen Brown pen, added a black rhinestone eye and a red gingham bow at the neck. All of the dots has Glossy Accent on them to give some depth to the banner.
I made my fence on my Cameo and then did the line work with my Le Pen Brown pen. I love doing line work it always makes a project come together. My fun flowers are from Tim Holtz Tattered Flower Garland die. They are so pretty and I made a few of my roly poly flowers to go along with them. I added some green gemstones to the center of the flowers.
My bunny I drew on to kraft paper and again did chalking and line work to give the bunny life.
For this banner the letters are Basic Grey letters from a sticker sheet that I had. Again, I did another giant flower with the large button. I also added Glossy Accent to the circles on the paper.
I did a mirror image of the banner two for my 4 banner. I just love how it turned out.
The little birdie is from EK Spring Chicks sticker sheet, they have a grainy look to them and are very cool to use.
My last banner is again with the large blossoms chipboard along that I have used Glossy Accent circles with another of the chipboard butterflies. The center of the flower is from Lil Davis Designs.
The next stop on the hop is with Rachelle of Creations by Rachelle, I hop you enjoy all of the banners and continue on with the hop. I am sure you will be inspired and may be glean a new technique or idea along the way. If you did not have a chance to do the hop yesterday there is a new group of designers that made banners to send to the Pediatric Specialty Care Center, so if you have time please check out their blogs. I am so glad you stopped by my blog and hope you come back often. Hugs Pammejo
