SSS262 & Autism Awareness


 Hi Friends, Welcome to the Light It Up Blue For Autism Awareness Blog Hop! I know a few people who have children with Autism. Although I don't see them often I still wanted to help shed light on awareness for the disease.There are so many fantastic sponsors that have shown their support for Autism Awareness and you can see the complete list below in the link
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. You can also join us by linking up a card, made for any occasion using the color Blue, that's the only requirement. 

Light it Up Blue For Autism Awareness
Sweet Sunday Sketch 262 Sketch
Crafty Creations Challenges Anything Goes
Simon Says Stamp Wed, Challenge Happy Birthday
Cardz 4 Guyz Challenge-64 Begins with "S" - The STARS on my card begin with S.
City Crafter Polka Dots


I used Sweet Sunday Sketch 262 to make my card. Hero Arts stamp set "Going" was used for the little punch buggy! I wanted to make a simple card that could be sent to just about anyone. The happy Birthday sentiment is from a new set I just won from Newton's Nook, Newton's Birthday Bash. 

The car was colored with Copics. Don't ask me what I was thinking when I shaded this? It didn't come out right but that's OK! Echo Park paper, Studio Calico stars, Twinery Twine, MFT dies and Lifestyle Crafts EB folder were used.



Thanks for visiting.
