Autism Matters Blog Hop

Thank you for joining us today on this amazing hop that we are doing to bring awareness to AUTISM!
"1 in 50 Children living in the US has a diagnosis of 
Autism Spectrum Disorder"
For this blog we are making projects using the Red/Yellow/Blue colors of the autism logo.  Can you believe that 1 in 50 children are on the spectrum.  Autism affects most everyone in some way.  I decided to use this beautiful carousal horse from the Stampin' Up! Carousal Birthday set.  To me it just evokes memories of being a child - enjoying the pleasures that every child should - but that are sometimes so difficult with autism.
I used the colors of the logo - a few gems - and the splatters in the background to give that surreal feeling of these horses going up and down on the ride. Not a worry in the world!
I hope you like the card and will check out the other blogs on the hop, but first -
Please consider donating to this worthy cause - every $1 helps with research and awareness.
Be sure to continue along the hop with these other great stampers - 
 Stop back here soon to see the baby shower invitation I made for my daughter, using this very same set with an entirely different look!  Thanks for hopping with us - feel free to let your friends know to hop with us too!! ~Maureen
