Light it Up Blue for Autism Blog Hop


Hello!  
There is a fabulous Blog Hop underway at the moment that I just had to join in. It is the Light It Up Blue for Autism Awareness Blog Hop and has been organized by Veronica Zalis and Tenia Nelson for World Autism Awareness Day, which was yesterday April 2, 2015.  To be honest, I didn't know a lot about Autism before yesterday.  So I spent some time reading over at the Autism Speaks website........my world, my eyes have been opened.  

The card I am sharing is for everyone...........just be YOU.  :)
