{SPD} Light it Up Blue for Autism!




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



I used this stamp from SugarPea Designs (My Hero) that I think is perfect for this hop!  Some of you may know that my oldest son, Ryan, is Autistic. I am very honoured to be taking part in todays hop. to raise awareness for Autism! Things have come along way in acceptance and tolerance of those who are 'different' or 'atypical', but there are still so many who need reminders and education in compassion! We are so blessed to have such amazing friends and family, who show our boy unconditional love! My heart is full! I am so incredibly proud of the bright and caring young man my son is growing into...and I know he wouldn't be where he is today without the support we have received from his school, our family and friends. We have been blessed to chosen to be his parents, and I wouldn't change him for the world, though sometimes I wish I could change the world for him....

I'll be offering up some blog candy too! I'm on Spring Break right now with my family, taking in some end of the season skiing and R and R...So, I'm not sure yet what it'll be, but please comment and I'll choose a winner in the next few days!! Leave your email in the comments so I can get ahold of you! Your comment will also get you entered to win prizes from some of our generous sponsors!

Adorable card! I love your coloring technique! Masterful!

Bunny said...

Compassion is one word that some people need to learn to apply to their lives. You never know when you see a child having a meltdown in the grocery store what is really going on. Nasty, mean comments don't help a parent that is struggling with the child that has autism. Thanks for the awareness.

Cute card, too. Love the coloring and the glossy accent on the glasses.
