Happy Saturday everyone! I'm back today participating in a Stamping For Autism Awareness Blog Hop! I have several friends who have autistic children so when I was asked to join in this Blog Hop I jumped on board to show my support.
Having an autistic child is a tough job. While there are many blessings there are also a lot of struggles, and not just within the family. Some of the struggle comes from the outside world with people not being understanding or helpful or inclusive.
While I don't have an autistic child, I do have a brother and sister who both have special needs so I've seen first hand the ostracizing and bullying that can occur from children and adults. So my challenge to you and even myself is to be more understanding, more helpful, and more inclusive!
For my card today I used this stamp set from The Greeting Farm called Little Heroes. The one thing I often hear from parents of an autistic child is how much of a hero their child is to them so I knew I had to do a superhero card. These cuties were colored with Copic Markers.
The puzzle clip-art was Designed by Freepik. I also resized the same clip-art into a tiny square so I could paper-piece parts of their outfits. Why is a puzzle piece a symbol for Autism? On a nationwide level, the Puzzle Piece symbol reflects the mystery and complexity of Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). Also, since every puzzle piece is different in some way, a puzzle piece accurately represents the diversity of the individuals affected.
