Royal Purple Freedom Blog Hop

Welcome to the Royal Purple Freedom Blog Hop! I hope you've enjoyed hopping along this far! If you just stopped by my blog, make sure you start at the beginning of this hop HERE and check out all of the fabulous cards that were made!

I decided to make several cards for this hop. It touched my heart that Faith was doing this and I wanted to contribute as much as I could!

All of my cards feature the same elements, but I used different paper and different colors of cardstock for each one to mix them up a little.




Each card is 3.5 x 3.5 inches in size.

Recipe for cards:
Bazzill Violet Monochromatic Cardstock
Basic Grey Wysteria Paper
Pink by Design Save The Tatas SVG Files
Market Street Stamps Simple Joys Stamp Set
Versamark Watermark Ink Pad
Ranger Ink Holographic Embossing Powder
Ranger Ink Seafoam White Embossing Powder

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


If you are interested in blog candy, you are in luck! Faith has gotten numerous donations for giveaways for this hop! I also chipped in and decided to give away this "Girlfriends" DIY paper bag album kit like the ones you can find in my etsy shop.
