you can do hard things - autism awareness blog hop

This is my 3rd post today. Looking for Pinkfresh Studio's 4th birthday bash blog hop? click HERE
Or for Neat and Tangled release week post, day 1? click HERE

My friend Veronica Zalis organized a fantastic hop for Autism Awareness day. The cause is near and dear to her heart, as it touches her family personally, and I am happy to be a part of this hop. To learn more about autism, I suggest you visit autismspeaks.org

There are prizes up for grabs from a ton of crafty sponsors, and you have the opportunity to link up a card to help increase autism awareness. For all of the details, be sure to check out Veroica's blog - click!

Autism Awareness blog hop

In honor of Veronica's son Cameron, I used the little boy from Neat and Tangled's Better Together and stamped an uplifting sentiment from So Many Sentiments.

I hope you like it! Here is a complete list of blog participants:

  25. I would like to say how much I appreciate that you are participating in this. My son is 12 and he has Aspergers syndrome. He also has aggressive ADHD and it was hard to get the autism diagnosis and therefore to get it treated. This is a wonderful way to raise awareness

  26. This is an amazing card for a child with autism! I may have to find that set. I love this initiative! After homeschooling my 5 children for 27 yrs, I took a job as an EA/TA to a 7yr old boy who was on the autism spectrum. He also had FASD. I was with him for 3 years and LOVED it all! Thank you for bringing forward more awareness of the awesomeness of these children.
