Hop to Stop DV2

Damsel of Distressed has a wonderful challenge!  It is near and dear to me, because I have worked in a shelter for women that suffer from DV!!!! So here is the challenge:

THE HOP TO STOP

You see, purple is the color of National Domestic Violence Awareness month. 
1 in 3 women will experience domestic violence over the course of their lifetimes. 
Let that sink in - 33% of all the women you meet. 
And women aren't the only people who are affected! Women, men, transgender - gender doesn't matter. Domestic violence is something that exists regardless of gender, socioeconomic status, religion, education level, etc.

 And yet, it's something that is rarely talked about in very public ways. It's something that's hidden and hushed. And since papercrafters are some of the most amazing people out there, some of you have agreed to make a card (or cards) to raise awareness for this issue. Throughout the hop, I'll be pointing to some of my other bloggy friends who've experienced DV. Together, we CAN make a powerful impact. 

Speaking of amazingly awesome - ^^^ Do you SEE that graphic above?! These are all the incredible companies who've agreed to support this blog hop. 14 companies and over $500 in prizes! I can't thank them enough! 

So here is my take on THE HOP TO STOP: "Purple"

  1. I am a cat fanatic so I LOVE your card! What a great sentiment for the hop. The kitty is adorable and beautifully coloured! I appreciate your support of Domestic Violence Awareness. It must have been difficult to work in the shelter and hear the horror stories.

  3. Just from your last card and this one, I know you must be an animal lover...and that's a mighty proper cat loving being surrounded in purple. Another adorable card. Even though we don't have any pets in our home, we have grandchildren pets that come to visit, or we babysit for them in their home.
