Halloween and The Hop to Stop

Hello, everyone!  Today I'm joining The Hop to Stop with a Halloween card.  I used the World Card Making Day freebie from Create with TLC (thank you, Paulette). The owls freebie is still available here if you'd like to snag it for yourself.


I decided at the last minute on WCMD to participate in Paulette's challenge so I opted for a quick card. I used a beautiful Halloween frame freebie from my friend Neli over at Lugar Encantado de Neli (thank you, Neli, I love your freebies!).  

I have been making a lot of purple cards lately because I want to support The Hop to Stop, a blog hop designed to raise awareness about domestic violence. One in three women will experience domestic violence over the course of their lifetimes. Just think about it... that's 33% of all the women you meet.  Purple is the domestic violence awareness colour.  I explained my connection to this issue in a previous blog post.



Please become informed about domestic violence, its impacts, and available resources. You can visit the National Resource Center on Domestic Violence for more information. Canadians can find out more here.  I hope to see you at The Hop to Stop to support this important issue.


I would also like to join the following challenges: Artistic Inspirations AG Twist of Black UE; Aud Sentiments Halloween Sentiment 1/5; Beccy's Place October AG UE; Connie Can Crop Going Batty 2/2; CRAFT Autumn/Halloween 2/5; Craftin Desert Divas Things with Wings UE (owls, bats); Crafts and Me Halloween 1E; Crafty Calendar Halloween 1/3; Creative Corner Halloween 1/3; Creative Fingers AG 1/3; DL.ART October Linky UE 1/day; DRS Designs Spooky or Cutesy UE; Get Creative Halloween 1/3; Inspiration Destination AG UE; Just Keep on Creating AG UE; Kitty Bee Aloha Friday Animals 1/2; Left of Center Sketch or LOC theme UE; Not Just Cards AG UE; One Stitch at a a Time AG with Awareness (Domestic Violence Awareness) UE; Our Crafty Corner Getting Ready for Halloween 1/3; Papertake Weekly AG 4/5; Scrapbook Blessings Club AG Use Digi Stamps Only UE; The Outlawz Monday Greetings Halloween 1E; V's Sweet Ideas Spooktacular 2/2
