Autism Awareness Blog Hop - I have Blog Candy


Hello and welcome to the Light It Up Blue For Autism Awareness Blog Hop!  Did you know April 2nd is World Autism Awareness Day?  I think somewhere along the way, someone we know or maybe you have personally been touched by Autism.  I have friends and on-line friends who have children with different forms of Autism.   It is very challenging and some days, heart breaking.  And these parents and children need our support. 

 I personally know I do not know enough of what Autism is. 
  For more information, visit Autism Speaks.  and National Autism Association

 We have so many fantastic sponsors that have shown their support for Autism Awareness and you can see the complete list hereIf 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. I am representing, Loves Rubberstamps and am offering Blog Candy in the form of a gift voucher for $15.00 to the store.  And I too will be announcing the winner in the evening of April 6th, here on my blog.  I will be choosing from the comments on my blog.  I would love to have more followers too! 



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


Thank you Jessica Lynn for providing us with such a cute image to work with.  This little guy was so much fun to color up! 




Thank you so much for Hopping along with us in our Light it Up for Autism Awareness.
