Light It Up Blue For Autism Awareness Blog Hop!

Hello and welcome to the Light It Up Blue For Autism Awareness Blog Hop!  I am excited to be joining in this hop to bring Autism Awareness.   I wanted to take part because I have friends whose children have autism and also to support some crafty friends whose lives have been touched by it. I think more information and awareness about autism will benefit everyone. If you would like to know more about it, please check out Autism Speaks.  There are so many fantastic sponsors that have shown their support for Autism Awareness.  You can see the complete list HERE.

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

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


I used my MISTI and this technique, the amazing Laurie shared on her blog.  I tweaked it up just a bit, I don't have a matching stamp for the die I used but having it one color works perfectly too!   I was able to mass produce this card in no time using different color flowers on each card.


Enjoy the hop and thank you for visiting!
Have a great day!

Stamps:  Birthday Classics: April Stamp set (Papertrey Ink)
Accessories:  Black and white twine
