Light It Up Blue For Autism Hop!!!!


Smiley from Millan.Net Smiley from Millan.Net Smiley from Millan.Net


Hello and welcome to the Light It Up Blue For Autism Awareness Blog Hop!  

We have so many fantastic sponsors that have shown their support for Autism Awareness and you can see the complete list here: 

http://lk2thestarz.blogspot.com/…/the-light-it-up-blue-for-….

If you would like a chance to win a prize from one of these fabulous companies leave a comment on this blog, and any of the other blogs participating in today's hop! Winners will be chosen at random and will be announced on Monday April 6. 

I was very happy to be asked to participate in this Hop....I've had many friends and some family touched by Autism and have been intrigued and very happy to see some wonderful progress made in both diagnosing earlier and helping with the challenges those diagnosed face.  Most recently our cousin's little boy was diagnosed and able to start a program designed to actually help re-train the brain.....so very exciting to see the progress!! 

Now here is the card I created for today's hop! 


I pulled out a retired Gina K. Designs stamp set that actually was designed to promote Autism awareness a few years ago.  Since blue is the color that identifies Autism awareness, I went with a monochromatic card.  The cardstock is Gina K Powder Blue and I used Memento Sky Blue Ink.  I had the little puzzle piece charm that I bought long ago to go with this stamp set but had never actually made a card with it.  You gotta love having a crafter's stash of goodies, right?  LOL

You'll want to grab a lovely cuppa of your favorite beverage and check out the main link I posted at the beginning and hop along to see all the amazing creations designed just for this special hop today!!!  And enjoy!!


~ Have A Creative Day! ~
