BLOG HOP & FUNDRAISER UPDATE
Today is an exciting day, not only is our annual Stampin’ for Autism Blog Hop, but the one and only Veronica Zalis will be guest blogging. Earlier this month I ran my Rainbows for Autism Fundraiser. This fundraiser is dedicated to my friend Veronica, and her son Cameron.
I’m excited to report we raised over $2,000 of OAR – Organization for Autism Research.
Even though the card kit deadlinehas ended, if you donate $25 directly to OAR via my team link, you will receive the Rainbows for Autism card kit tutorial as a free gift from me (see below for details).
And now here’s Veronica and Cameron’s story….
GUEST BLOGGER VERONICA ZALIS
Cam is a happy kid. We don’t focus on the more challenging aspects of his life, instead we celebrate the things he does well. Cam loves all things Disney, Dr Seuss, and he is always listening to music, believe it or not one of his current faves is a song by Pink Floyd!
By now, we all know someone with autism, or perhaps even a family member. If I could leave you with one word that we need so much more of, it would be compassion. We’ve all seen the parent or caretaker struggling in a store, at school, walking across a parking lot. If you can, take a moment to silently, or verbally offer a word or look of encouragement. If you are able to lend a hand to a care taker in need that is even better. One small gesture of kindness could make all the difference in the world.
I am excited to share the card I created for today’s blog hop!
CELEBRATE YOU CARD
To create my card I used the Stampin’ Up! stamp and die set Sunshine and Rainbows. I am so sad this set is retiring, so if you don’t have it, and you want it you better hurry and grab it!
I created the “fluffy cloud” background using a sponge dauber, and Tempting Turquoise ink. I die cut my cloud stencil using the cloud landscape dies from Rainbow Builder framlits. I lightly tapped just above the outline of the clouds to give it a soft look. It was very easy!
