Light it up Blue for Autism

I am happy to be joining in on the Light it Up Blue For Autism Blog Hop. It always feels good when a group of people pull together for a GREAT cause. 



I have 2 projects to share today, one with Reverse Confetti and another using Lil' Inker Design products. Both companies are sponsoring a prize for the hop and I am proud to design for both of them. First up is my RC card using the adorable birdie. 


I made a sweet blue birdie with the Tweet Life stamp set and matching Confetti Cuts.  I topped him on a solid circle from Circles 'n Scallops. Added an trio of Sun 'n Clouds. The large cloud was the perfect place to stamp my sentiment. Here's a close up 








I also have a cool blue inspired canvas using Lil' Inker Designs products. I love that both of these companies I design for are also sponsors for the hop! Top Knotch! Speaking of sponsors. I am also donating a sheet of the Jamberry Autism Awareness Charity Wraps


If you aren't familiar with Jamberry, go check out my website. They donate $2 from every Autism Awareness wrap sold to the Autism Society of America.  They are super cool nail wraps that last up to two weeks on  your fingers and 6 weeks on your toes! They come in super cute designs and colors. There is something for everyone! If you want to order, hop on over to my website. 

Ok, back to crafty stuff. You can see I was inspired by the nail wrap.  Here is my Mini Canvas. I started by water coloring a piece of Distress Water Color Paper cut with Mini Canvas Die.  

I used the Puzzle Pieces die to cut out three puzzle pieces and adhered them together. I then stamped a sentiment from the coordinating stamp set, Piece of Me


I used Black Licorice Hybrid Ink from MFT for my sentiment and then added some speckles of black ink with the re-inker and a paint brush. I really love this Mini Canvas die and that you can create your own custom pieces of art and display it on the Mini Easel
Here is a closer look at the LID products I used today.





There is so much for you to see today, so thanks for sticking with me and my long post. It's worth it though. Be a part of  Autism Awareness and join this amazing

Winners will be chosen at random from comments left on Blog Hop participants blogs. The more comments you leave, the greater your chances will be at winning! Winners will be chosen on Monday April 6th.  Thanks for stopping by and Happy World Autism Awareness Day!

Thank-you!
