WCMD - The Hop to Stop Violence!

Hi friends ♥
Yes ~ today is World Card Making Day ~ 2015!
And I can't think of a better way to create
 a card than one with a cause.

By an incredible coincidence, I clicked on a blog link the other day 
that lead me to Becca's blog,
and quite frankly, stopped me in my tracks.

For 7 years, I was a mental health counselor.
There are things that you just can't imagine
happening to another human being.
And there are things that the human mind
 just should not have to see.

If you are experiencing domestic violence, reach out for help!
Call the 24/7 confidential National Domestic Violence Helpline at 1-800-799-7233
 And the inside of my card:

This month, thanks to Becca's wonderful blog hop,
there is a voice.
There is unity.
There is HOPE.

Becca's blog hop is to bring awareness to 
  National Domestic Violence Awareness Month.
There are many sites and links to visit for informative messages.

Awareness is key!
Your card - your blog - just might be the one that someone 
will see that will make all the difference.
You can empower others through your voice, your message.
Let your purple flag fly ♥
Thanks for Becca's hard work, dedication and organization, 
the hop has many wonderful sponsors!

 For my card specifically, I used an Inspirations stamp from
Rich Razzleberry for the purple along w/ scraps of Basic Grey and SU!
dsp, and a scattering of plum/dark pink colored buttons,
burlap and twine.

Thanks so much for stopping by today 
and I hope you're able to support this wonderful awareness cause, too!

Big Hugs, Bigger Blessings!
