Christmas is for Kids Banner Hop - Day 2

Welcome to Day #2 (Sunday) of the Christmas is for Kids Banner Hop!  Did you remember to set your clocks back one hour early this morning, when Daylight Savings Time ended?  So you've got an extra hour to spend with us on this hop. 

If you've arrived here from Dena's blog you're on the right track - if not you can hop back to Ellen ♥ CardMonkey's Blog where the hop begins. 
It is my pleasure to be a part of the CHRISTMAS is for KIDS BANNER HOP, where fantastic and generous crafters donated their talents, time and holiday banners to the children at Pediatric Specialty Care in Bucks County, PA. (See www.PediatricSpecialty.Com

On this hop, we have 34 generous hoppers who have created fabulous banners. Please scroll down for the full list of today's hop stops.

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:

One winner will receive four free digi-images of
their own choosing from! will provide one winner with a code
valued at $20 toward your purchase from their terrific site!

Beautiful ribbons, embellishments, charms and more are on the site.  They'll be giving a voucher valued approx $32 USD.

All hoppers are eligible to win.  Here's how:

Follow the blog and comment on as many projects as you choose -- the more blogs where you comment and follow, the more chances you have to win. There's just one catch: please actually comment on the project, which shows you've looked at the project, not just cut/pasting random comments ("CUTE! TYFS") only to win the prize. will choose the winners, subject to verification that winners have met the above-stated criteria.

Without further ado, here is my banner:
