Stamping For Autism Awareness Blog Hop

Good morning!!!   
I am so excited to have been invited to join "Stamping For Autism Awareness" Blog Hop, with some really special and talented group of ladies.
Over the Fall I had the pleasure of meeting Theo!!  Theo, is Tenia Nelson's son!  My boys and I fell in LOVE!!!!   He had this infectious smile and gave these warm hugs.
Look at this group of handsome kids!!!
(Picture shared with permission!! )
Not sure when we will see each other again, but I made this card with him in mind.   Hanging out with him that day, you would never know that he was Autistic.  The world is filled too much discrimination or idealisms about what should be considered normal.  What SHOULD be normal is ACCEPTING and LOVING one another without any boundaries.


Of course, I had to add some glitter to the yellow puzzle piece; because for that one day, he brightened up our world!!
Here is my combination of both digital and traditional stamping at its best!  :) 
Puzzle Pieces/Sentiment: Lil' Inkers: Piece Of Me
Medium: Copic 

To learn more info about Autism please go to the National Autism Association site HERE or the Autism Speaks site HERE!


I would like to share/join the following challenges with this card:

  6. An awesome card and what beautiful children! Looks like your boys and Theo have become fast friends! I am a grandmother of two young grandsons (3 & 5 y/o) and in my experience children are loving and accepting to each other unto themselves, its often the adults who "behave" poorly and we as adults are their teachers in life. ♥ this hop!
