Light it Up Blue For Autism Awareness Blog Hop


Autism..  maybe just a thought for some....very real for many,
Please think before you  role your eyes, snicker or speak out...we're not all wired the same....it  doesn't mean we don't feel.
Do you know the difference between appropriate and inappropriate responses?
Shine a Light on Autism is a place you can read more about Autism awareness, fundraising, science, and advocacy efforts.

Here is what the HOP is all about:
"Hello and welcome to the Light It Up Blue For Autism Awareness Blog Hop!   There are 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.  ♥ Veronica and Tenia.

My cards for the hop:

One for the kiddos:)

One for the Mommas:)


This one's for all the dear mothers of Autistic children.  
There is One who knows your hurts and daily struggles, 
He will give you the strength to for each day. Come to Him and He will give you rest.
His name is Jesus.



Thanks for stopping by!

    1. Thanks for the question Crystal,
      I inked up the back of the stencil with Distress inks, then spritzed with water. Placed watercolor paper on top and let it dry, repeating this process until I liked the color coverage. This left the Flutterby outlines white. I then placed the stencil back on the dry paper lining up the images and pressed Versamark onto the open spaces then embossed with WOW pearl white. Last, I lightly inked up the sentiment stamps to add a hint of text.
      Hope this helps..feel free to question further if my directions are not clear:).
