Love Bug Banner for Kids Blog Hop Jan. 6th, 2012 Day one

Good Morning, Wow!!! Happy New Year to you all.  2012 will be a Great year and I could not be happier with this being my first hop for the New Year.  I want to Thank CardMonkey- Ellen Jarvis for having me be a part of this wonderful hop.  We each were asked to make a Banner for the Special Needs Kids at Pediatric Special Care Unit.  So this in itself is a very special cause.  Now if you came from Dena -, then you are in the right place.  If you just happen to stop by , please start with Ellen ♥ CardMonkey -  Now we have three very special sponsors for this hop.  The first one is from Jellypark Digital Stamps, they will award 2 free digi-images to the winner of this prize!

Then sponsor is

Kristal Andrews (K Andrews Designs) has donated a stamp set to the winner of this prize!

And the Last sponsor is:

Robyn's Fetish is the proud sponsor of our Love Bugs Banners for Kids blog hop, and will donate FIVE digital images of the winner's choice as a prize!  Okay, now that I got that out of the way, Here is my Banner:

I kept mine short and sweet...  Used the Create a Critter Cartridge to cut out the bugs you see on this banner.  I really hope this banner brings a smile to a very special child.  So there you have it.  Now remember the more you comment on both days of this hop the more chances you have to win some awesome prizes.  Well I hope you enjoyed this banner, now it's time to head on over to the lovely   Ms. Erica .  Thank you for stopping by and don't forget this is a two day hop with lots more Banners on Day 2.  Hope you enjoy your weekend and have a Great day...
