Light It Up Blue for Autism Awareness



Two blogging friends, Veronica and Tenia, are hosting the
Light It Up Blue For Autism Awareness Blog Hop and I'm honored to join them today.
Both Tenia and Veronica have children diagnosed with autism,
and the stamping community is coming together to show our support and
to raise awareness of this often misunderstood disorder.
 
Blue is the awareness color for autism and all projects on the hop
will contain the color blue. Start at Veronica's blog and click on the thumbnails
that will take you to all the participants. Leave comments along the way to be eligible
for prizes from some fantastic sponsors.


I inked up the Paper Smooches butterfly in various shades of blue Distress inks,
sprayed them with water and stamped them across the card. I spattered some
watered down ink and chose a simple sentiment. Some sequins finished off the card.
 

I'll direct you back to Veronica's blog to continue the hop. Don't forget to leave a comment
here and any of the other participating blogs for a chance to win awesome prizes.
Winners will be chosen at random and announced at Veronica's blog on Monday, April 6th.

And if you'd like more information on autism, visit the Autism Speaks website.
Thanks for joining us today. Happy Hopping!
