Light it Up Blue for Autism Awareness Blog Hop


Veronica Zalis, one of our past MFT teammates, is hosting another autism awareness blog hop. The goal is to help raise autism awareness and to celebrate all those with autism and those whose lives have been touched by autism. MFT is participating in the hop by hosting a challenge on the MFT Challenge Blog, so come on over and play with us!


When I started thinking about this card I immediately remembered this sentiment in LLD Tickled Pin Stamp Set—is it not perfect??? So I used it to guide my design and went with flamingos. Normally, flamingos are pink(ish) but my “different” blue one is definitely beautiful.


I created this scene using Mini Cloud Edges Stencil and Beach Scene Builder Die-namics, then added the gorgeous Flamingo Die-namics.

Please join us by creating a project that's blue, or that includes the autism puzzle pieces or basically anything that speaks to you. Let's support  and celebrate these amazing people and their families.

Thanks so much for stopping by! See you soon!
