The Hop to Stop domestic violence

Today I'm sharing a card created for bringing awareness to domestic violence.  Many have a story to tell and the need to heal old wounds and move forward in life.  As a child, I was a witness to domestic violence.  My birth father used to beat my mother, even going so far as to break her nose while driving in the car.  Years later, after divorce and 3 marriages, my father finally stopped drinking and got his life in order.  The memories never fade though, do they?  Those childhood memories molded me into the person that I choose to be today; the mother I choose to be; the strong woman that I choose to be.

I eencourage you to link up and if you'd like send your card to the designated women's shelter that organizer Becca Dawn has arranged with.

The color theme is purple for this hop.  I've colored up an image from the Adornit Art Play paintables.  Yes, I went a little over the top.  I'm hoping some little girl will receive this and be over the moon with all the sparkle and glitter.  Children of domestic violence need a little happy in their lives.  May Arts Ribbon is also a sponsor of this event and i
I'm happy to be featuring their ribbons on this project as well.

Even if you don't participate, it would be lovely if you would share and spread the news.  Thank you!
