Hop to Stop - cards for Domestic Violence Month

Today I'm sharing a few cards I made in response to a blog post by Becca Cruger
at Hop to Stop about Domestic Violence.

I was alerted to this very worthy cause by Lizzy Hill and also Margaret Mifsud
both of whom have made cards.  

I started off with some water colour paper and just played
with stencils, paint, inks without being too invested in the outcome.

Great to use some older stash and some pretty ribbon from my friend Chris.
Purple, is the colour of Domestic Violence Awareness month.
There is a blog hop and a chance to make cards to donate to Becca's local shelter.
They can use thank you, birthday, encouragement and all occasion cards,
with the centres left blank to make them more versatile.

Thanks for calling in to say hello; I love it when you leave a comment 
and appreciate you taking the time to do that.
