HOP TO STOP!

Becca Cruger is running the HOP to STOP again this year.
It's in order to increase awareness of Domestic Violence.
Hop_to_Stop_2016
As well as the hop, there is also the opportunity to help by making
cards to donate to her local Shelter. They're particularly after
thank you, birthday and encouragement cards. And to leave them blank
inside to make them more usable :)
I've finished a bunch which I'll send off tomorrow:
There are about 10 I think all up. And it will cost me about $7-50, which
is not too bad to the USA. I REALLY enjoyed making these cards!

For the HOP itself, there are a pile of WONDERFUL sponsors:
You need to use PURPLE in your card. Here's mine:
I created the bg paper first, using a sheet of A4, then cut it up for a number
of the cards. I sprayed & dabbed on some mists & butterfly stamps.
Butterflies to me signify new life and renewal:
I've use my new fave 'Wink of Stella' on the butterfly! And some pretty tinsel.
The sentiment is heat embossed......
So, over to you. It's a great idea ~ hoping you find the time to make a card
& support Becca!!
Cheers for now & happy scrapping ~ Lizzy ♥♥♥
And remember:
Winks!
