Light It Up Blue and giveaway

Hello and welcome to the Light It Up Blue For Autism Awareness Blog Hop!



 We have so many fantastic sponsors that have shown their support for Autism Awareness and you can see the complete list here at Veronica's blog.  If you would like a chance to win a prize from one of these fabulous companies leave 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. 

I'm participating because several of my cardmaking friends have children with autism, as well as children within our local school. For more information on Autism, I'd recommend checking out the Autism Speaks or Autism Canada websites. Educate yourself about it. :) 

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


I watercolored a blue background using Distress Inks and the 'smooshing' technique and once dry, die cut my frame from it. The shaker is full of fun sequins and stars and using a double layer of foam tape lets you shake away to your hearts desire. :)  


I'm also giving away a blog candy prize on this blog hop! Leave a comment and I'll randomly draw the winner on Monday, April 6th.


Thanks for hopping along today in support of Autism Awareness. 
Have a great day!
