The Hop to Stop!

As usual, I am late in my card making efforts, and this makes me incredibly sad.  It saddens me because the cards that will be featured on my blog today were created with a specific purpose in mind--to raise awareness of the damaging effects of domestic violence.  The month of October is National Domestic Violence Awareness month, and the color chosen to represent such an important month is purple.  You have probably seen a flurry of purple creations across the blogosphere to help spread the word.  Please, click on the photo below to visit Becca's blog and view all the heartfelt creations submitted by a plethora of amazing artists who support the needed awareness to a plague that infects many homes across our world.  If you feel inclined, link up your lovely purple creation.


For my card, I opted to keep it simple.  The featured stamp is one of many from the beautiful set, All About Hope, designed by Tifany DeGough for Unity Stamp Co.  I love all the butterflies!  Don't you? 

Below, you will see a list of all the generous sponsors for the Hop to Stop domestic violence.  Please, stop by their company blogs and thank them for their kindness and support.  Have a wonderful day, and many thanks for dropping by!
