Autism Awareness Blog Hop

Hello, and welcome to my stop on this awesome route to shining a light on Autism Awareness. To start at the beginning and not miss a thing, you’ll want to head HERE to Veronica Zalis’s Blog. You can find out all the details about the hop, making a card, the sponsors, prizes, etc. there. Veronica has put together another awesome hop this year and I’m proud to be a part of it. Autism Awareness is especially close to Veronica’s heart and I’m glad I can do a small part in spreading the word and ❤ .

First, I’d like to share a link to Autism Speaks. This hop is a great opportunity for me to read/link to the latest on research and information there, and I thought I’d share it with you too. ❤


Today, I’m sharing two cards. This first one uses Taylored Expressions Autism Awareness set called Look With Your Heart and 25% of the proceeds are being donated to the Autism Society. I’m happy TE reached out to let us obtain this set early and use it today. 🙂 Taylored Expressions is also a sponsor on our hop today and offering a lovely prize. Be sure to read about that! 🙂

I love Taylored Expressions felt! ❤ You should see the tiny little pieces I cut these flowers from. I use every last little smidgen of this stuff up. 🙂 This flower die is Taylored Expressions lil bits die

Goodness, I just adore this sweet sentiment. ❤

Here’s an image of the entire set: Look With Your Heart.


Next up, is this sweet card I made using a new favorite die from Technique Tuesday called Pieces of My Heart . Technique Tuesday is also sponsoring today’s hop and offering a great prize too. Be sure to check that out on the TT Blog HERE. 🙂

For this, I blended on some Distress Oxide ink and scored the base panel to give it some texture. I then added the Heart and lovely awesome sentiment from the stamp set Being Unique.

I just ❤ this sentiment so. Gah! 😉

Thank you to Veronica for all her hard work to get the hop organized and to the amazing sponsors for taking part! Again, be sure to head to Veronica’s Blog HERE to start from the beginning! 🙂

ETA: Here’s the updated FANTABULOUS list of designers, sure to make you smile! (Hopefully all the links are working.) 🙂
