Autism Awareness Day - Light it Up Blue Blog Hop

Hello sweet friends and followers.
Today is World Autism Awareness Day


and I have made a card to share in the
Light It Up Blue For Autism Awareness Blog Hop!

My life has been touched in two ways by autism -
first by the boy (now young man) that my son has been
working with for several years now, and second by the
way in which I have watched my son interact, teach, care for
and form an amazing bond with this special young man.
I believe that my son has gained as much from this pairing
as the young man he as been working with.

These amazing sponsors have generously offered blog candy in support
of this great cause.  You can see the complete list here:



If you would like a chance to win a prize from one of these 
fabulous companiesleave a comment on my 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 using a stamp from one of
the Blog Hop Sponsors - Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps called "All Steamed Up".
I've colored this sassy gal in blue as it's the color of Autism Awareness.


Thanks so much for stopping by!  I'm sure glad you did :o)
It would be awesome if you could join us in this hop.  Hugs D
