The Hop to Stop ...


October is National Domestic Violence Awareness Month and I am one of many participating in The Hop to Stop. This hop is designed to raise awareness about Domestic Violence, which is an issue that impacts 1 in 4 women.


My card features the Butterfly Wisdom stamp set from MHK Designs, one of the Hop Sponsors. To start I printed 2 copies of the Butterfly grouping, colored the butterflies with my Copic Markers, and then paper-pieced the large butterfly to create the 3D effect. I layered the design on my background, and added one of the 3 sentiments available in the set.

Here's a closer look at the large butterfly ...


Let's check out all of the amazing Sponsor's participating to help bring awareness about Domestic Violence


For more information about Domestic Violence, its impact, and available resources, visit the National Resource Center on Domestic Violence.

Make sure you head on over to our Hostess' Blog for all of the information on how YOU can participate in The Hop to Stop, and qualify for one of the Super Sponsor Prizes!

Until next time ... Enjoy!
