Light It Up Blue For Autism Awareness Blog Hop

Hello!

I am really pleased to be joining in the Light It Up Blue for Autism Awareness blog hop organised by the lovely Veronica Zallis and Tenia Nelson.  These inspirational ladies have got us all crafting to promote Autism Awareness and there are lots of fabulous crafters and sponsors involved :) 


It is great to see the crafting community light it up blue for all those whose lives have been touched by autism.  I hope Veronica and Tenia won't mind me saying that I have become more aware of autism through the Facebook posts they have shared about their wonderful boys.  There are undoubtedly challenges - often caused by the ignorance or insensitivity of others - but my overriding impression is one of joy, love and fun which is definitely something to be celebrated :)

If you would like a chance to win a prize from one of the fabulous companies sponsoring the hop leave a comment on this blog or any of the other participating blogs.  Full details of the sponsors and links to participating blogs can be found here.  Winners will be chosen at random and announced on Monday, 6 April.

Here is what I came up with:

 
I thought the gorgeous Mama Elephant Bear Hugs stamps would look great in blue.  I stamped it in Chipped Sapphire and watercoloured with distress inks.  A few splatters and a watercoloured moon finish the design.
 
Thanks to both Veronica and Tenia for all of their hard work! I am looking forward to hopping around all of the fabulous blogs.
 
I hope you have fun hopping along :)
