World Autism Awareness Day!

Hello, sweet friends!
I hope you had a blessed Easter celebration
(if you celebrate ♥) 

April 2nd is commonly known as World Autism Awareness Day
a day that brings awareness to the spectrums of Autism.
 This day is special to me because my niece has Asperger's syndrome (ASD)
and we, as a family, collectively learned the best was to make sure her life
 is an enriched and beautiful as she is to us!

Naturally, I was SO excited when Denise,
  creative mind and owner of The Project Bin,
created a set of stamps called "Spencer's Set".

 For my card today, I'm sharing with you TWO cards ~
one action wobble to match the accompanying "why fit it!" sentiment
and another more contemporary, elegant card.

First up - let's wobble!!

I created a simple framed A2 size card and popped it up on 3d foam.
And for the heart, I stamped it directly onto designer paper
and cut it out with the die from In My Heart ~ it's a perfect match for 
the heart in Spencer's Set! 
I added an action wobble behind the heart, which I purchased here
(but if you do an internet search, there are many options!
If the video attachs, you can see that it bounces and spins ...
definitely stands out like the sentiment says!

Next, I created a card that's a little more contemporary for
my favorite teacher .... my daughter!
Our oldest daughter is a special education teacher 
and an absolute natural at her job.
She's my hero!

 I chose patterned paper that had numbers on it ~
and like the card above, I used In My Heart die and Spencer's Set.

Here's a peek at both stamp sets:

 Thanks for stopping by today!
Big hugs, bigger blessings ♥
