Blog Hop: Stamping for Autism Awareness

Cheerio! Welcome to another stop on the Stamping for Autism Awareness Blog Hop. 

Autism is such an important topic to keep in the forefront of our conversations. Being kind, open, non-judgmental, and inclusive towards all of our fellow human beings should be the first step!

I created three cards for today's hop. 

This one is my favorite. My son helped color the heart and the sentiment says it all! Stamps are from The Project Bin. The set is called Spencer's Set and has lots of good sentiments to fit this puzzle piece heart image.You should totally check it out!

I love this card too. It's near and dear to my heart. Although my kiddos aren't on the Autism Spectrum, they have special needs and we deal with several issues on a daily basis. I tell them all the time that it's okay to be different and it doesn't make them any less human than any other kid out there!
The digital image came from MelonHeadz, and was free! I created the sentiment in a word program. 

For my last card I wanted something to really push home the idea that people with Autism are not dumb, stupid, or any one of the many despicable things they are called. They merely see, feel, and relate to the world around them in a way that others can't understand. Digital image is from MelonHeads and I added the sentiment to the center using my computer. 

I hope you are enjoying the Autism Awareness Blog, and I hope you are inspired to show compassion for those with Autism by including them, and treating them as you would anyone else!
 Thanks for stopping by,

Awww! Dana, I am misty-eyed with a lump in my throat! Your cards are so beautiful!!! I absolutely love that your son colored the puzzle pieced heart!!! The digi image is precious!!!! I love that sentiment, "Different not Less" and wow, "Bright not Broken"!! We had some long difficult but also beautiful days raising our little boy who is now doing amazingly well, living on his own, etc. But there were so many really hard days. I remember our little guy having a meltdown in a store and my sister said it changed her, she would never again turn around and look at a mom who's child was wailing in a store. I love what you wrote: Being kind, open, non-judgmental, and inclusive towards all of our fellow human beings should be the first step! TFS your beautiful cards!
