Here is the list designers participating in today's hop:

 I started my card off with a hand-drawn ribbon awareness shape traced
onto a piece of stiff felt and then trimmed out:
Next, I took small snippets of ribbon in shades of red, yellow, green and blue and
adhered them to the felt with fabric glue.  Afterwards, I trimmed all of the ribbons
down so that they matched up with the edge of the felt.  

To keep the cut edges from fraying, I dabbed on a fray-check solution.
Finally, I searched the internet for an inspirational sentiment regarding Autism. 
I printed out the sentiment and made sure that the typography didn't extend
past the window opening of the ribbon.

That's all from me!  You're next stop is Valerie Gee's Blog.
I hope that you enjoy today's special blog hop...thanks for joining us!

  9. FABULOUS card Shellye!!!
    LOVE your ribbon of ribbons (great idea) and your sentiment too!!!


  10. I just love everything about your card but most of all that it is recognizing autism awareness. I so wish that we could educate more people on autism. Being a parent of a child with autism, I find I constantly have to fight for my sons right just to be a child and be treated fairly. So many people, even teachers, don't understand how autism affects children differently.

  11. Awesome! I am also a parent of an autistic child and I really appreciate this hop and the awareness you are bringing to autism! Thanks! :)

  12. I love all the fun ribbons you used!

Oh, December Daily, how do I love thee! Isn't this just the greatest idea, ever?  (scrapbooking wise, anyway) Welcome to my contribution to the  SIMPLE STORIES  DECEMBER DAILY BLOG HOP I'm so glad that you're joining us...I can't wait to hop around myself and see how the girls have decorated their SN@P Albums December Daily style :)
**You should be arriving here from Rebecca Keppel's Blog**
I have quite a few photos to share, so I'll leave most of them in a  smaller size.  Just click on each one to enlarge.
My vision for the album was to mix 'n match  Handmade Holiday, SN@P and Year.O.Graphy I wanted bright colors mixed in with more shabby-distressed look that Simple Stories is known for.    For the cover, I took a bright Turquoise Dot SN@P paper and a strip from Year.O.Graphy and stitched them together.  The title is a compilation of  sevearl SN@P sticker elements.
