Bunnies and Blossoms Banner Hop

Welcome to the Bunnies and Blossoms Banner Hop for Special Needs Children.
You have reached the last stop for the hop :)

30+fantastic papercrafters have come together to create Spring-themed banners.They will then donate these banners to Ellen (CardMonkey), who works asAdmissions Coordinator at Pediatric Specialty Care (PSC),

PSC is a long-term care facility for specialneeds children who are medically-fragile and/or technologically-dependent. Thebabies, children and youths at PSC range in age from birth to 21, and areadmitted from all over the country.
Some are infants, born prematurely and beforetheir lungs have had a chance to mature. Others have serious birth defects,illnesses or injuries from accidents that cause them to need tender loving carein a home-like environment -- many for their lifetimes.

Our banners are meant to cheer the youngpatients, their families, and the staff at PSC. Here is the banner that I made and will be sending to Ellen to decorate a child's room:
