Hop to Stop Purple card



The Damsel of Distress Cards The Damsel of Distress Cardshas 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:
 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!

  1. Such an adorable card...the color combo you used is striking. It's strange that you used that pup, I just got in the mail yesterday this stamp set and your card inspires me to use it.
