Royal Purple Freedom Hop

Welcome to my blog.  

This is my very first Blog Hop I'm participating in and I'm super excited about it. I hope I'm doing all this right, but if not, please excuse any goof ups along the way.

You should have came over from but if you happened to just be passing through and would like to start at the beginning you can start here

On to my project....

* A2 Card
* Decorative Paper from Creative Memories
* Flower Stamp
* Sakura Gelly Roll Pens
* Smooch
* Glossy Accents
* Shimmer Fabric Butterfly

This Blog Hop is to raise awareness on Domestic Violence, raise money for the Bradley Angle House and to provide hope to the victims. 

    About 4.8 million intimate partner-related physical assaults and rapes occur every year while many more assaults and rapes go unreported entirely. Over 3 million children witness violence in their home each year and those who see and hear violence in the home suffer physically and emotionally. These statistics are sad and overwhelming, but help IS out there for those that choose to break the silence.   Together we can make a difference! Help us instill some hope where very little probably exists and give 24 families a chance at recovery when we are able to donate 1k dollars to the Bradley Angle House.  
   Your purple themed card(s) with a hope filled message inside could make all the difference, not to mention give YOU a chance to win the grand prize for this hop...what is it you ask?  A prize basket valued at more than $100.   Want more chances to win the grand prize?  Additional entries will be given for each $1 donation you include with your card.  Would you prefer 1 entry, 10 entries, or is 100 entries more of what you had in mind?  It's all up to you!  
Cards must be postmarked by June 30th for inclusion in basket drawings and can be mailed to the following address: Royal Purple Hop c/o Vicki Smith P.O. Box 1496 Millbrook, NY 12545   

Your next stop along the way is Krista .  To start at the beginning or see all the blog candy being offered be sure to check out Faith's Blog and, in case you get lost along the way, here's the entire line-up:
