Stampin' For Autism Blog Hop 2018

Hello Dear Friends

April is Autism Awareness Month and I am both honoured and excited to be part of the Stampin' For Autism Blog Hop again this year!  Every year a number of Stampin' Up! demonstrators set up events and blog hops aimed at raising money for and awareness of Autism.  The AMAZING Lee Conrey is the grand orchestrator of this fundraiser event, but many, many other hands have been carrying the torch and doing their part for quite a few years now.  

This Autism Blog Hop / Fundraiser is a bright, colourful and creative way to raise awareness (and funds) for Autism.

Since we are using Red, Yellow and Blue to highlight this cause, I used red, yellow and blue Brusho as well as Real Red, Daffodil Delight and Night of Navy cardstock to create this set of 3 gorgeous cards. 

I also wanted to use the Remarkable You stamp set before it retires.
It is available in clear-mount and wood-mount and boy, am I ever going to miss it.  Order yours now (HERE) before it is too late!

Why did I want to use this stamp set?

Isn't it obvious?!?

Just LOOK at that sentiment!  

Anyone who knows someone who has Autism would surely want to give a card to them that says...You are Remarkable.

Anyone who knows a parent of a child who is autistic would surely love to give that parent a card that says...You are Remarkable.

I can think of a multitude of people, in fact, for whom I would love to give a card that says...You are Remarkable!

Yes, I am blessed to know so many remarkable people.  But honestly, I'll bet you do too!

At any rate, besides cruising through this blog hop and seeing all the gorgeous projects, there are 2 ways for you to donate to make a difference for this cause:
