Hello! Today's post is another banner that I have made. Originally, I was just going to post the banner without telling you anymore about the recipient because I didn't want you to think I was "tooting" my own horn for making it. I was just happy to have the opportunity to make it for a special child.
But the more I thought about it the more I wanted to share with you where the banner was going and a special person that I have met who is the Admissions Coordinator in Bucks County. She gets together about 40 crafters every year to join in her making banners for the medically-fragile, technologically dependent children in Pediatric Specialty Care. I am so blessed to now be a part of that group of crafters! I wanted to give you the link to her blog at Card Monkey's Paper Jungle so you can check out all that she does and maybe join her!
I had asked Ellen if there was anything I could do to help over the summer and she told me about "Chad" who was going to be checking into the facility in July and needed a banner for his room. Here's some pictures of the banner I made for Chad:
Since we weren't sure what Chad liked, I decided to make an animal banner for him. Here are close-up pictures of each pennant:
I ended up using three different Cricut cartridges to help me make this name banner for Chad: Art Philosophy, Elmo's Party and Create-a-Critter.
Art Philosophy: Pennants cut at 6.9" - page 49, < Banner4 > using Elemental Paper.
Elmo's Party: Letters cut at 4" using Font and Font Shadow keys using Cranberry, Pacifica, Olive, and Sorbet cardstock.
Create-A-Critter: Frog, Cat, Bear, Dog, Horse, Cow cut at 5" found on pages 24, 27, 29, 34, 59, and 60. I used Chocolate, Desert Sand, Olive, Garden Green, Cranberry, Olive, Black, Creme Brulee, Goldrush, Honey, Baby Pink, and White cardstock.
I hope this brightens up Chad's room and makes him smile.
We will be doing a Halloween Spooktacular Banners for Special Needs Kids Hop on September 1 - 3. All banners made will also be donated to PSC to brighten up childrens' rooms. Hope to see you then.
Thanks for stopping by - as always love reading your comments!
Have a crafty day!
