Basically your fantastic and I'm so glad that you exist

Today is the Purple Day Blog Hop in awareness of Epilepsy. Epilepsy is a group of disorders that is characterized as having seizures.  There are different types of Epilepsy and different types of seizures. As a nurse, I have worked with many individuals with Epilepsy and it is wonderful to see the advances that have been made in this field.
So please join me along with my wonderful crafting friends who have joined to promote this awareness. There are chances to win prizes along the way.
Lisa (that's me)

I made two cards.  The first card, has a wonderful image from Ike called Puppy Love and a sentiment from TLC, Create. And my second card has an image from Digi Doodle called You Have my Heart and a sentiment from TLC, Create.  I made this a side step card.

Hello, Lisa Lynn! Your cards are both so cute and adorable! The puppy is precious, such a great sentiment! Love your step card with all the hearts! Happy Purple Day! I learned a lot about epilepsy during this hop. The point I keep in mind is that during a convulsive seizure you should never hold the person down or put anything in their mouth. Please take care of yourself and stay safe and healthy!

Finally tracked this link down....I still was using the wrong one and kept hitting a dead end. But I got here! Yay!

Thank you so much for participating in the Epilepsy Awareness Hop. Your cards are fabulous. I do love purple!!! What a wonderful sentiment on the doggy one and awesome fancy fold on the other one.

I'm so glad to be a part of this hop, also, and to be reminded of some important things abt someone having a noting the time the seizure started. I prob would not remember to think of that!

Hope you are doing well during this virus thing. Stay safe and healthy.

How wonderful, I've just commented on one of your team-mates cards who used the same image. Amazing how two people can use the same element but create something different. Your puppy is so very cute and I love the purple plaid paper you've used. All your layers are lined up so perfectly too and the sentiment couldn't be better. So very glad you joined us at TIME OUT and please keep safe!!

I really love both the cards, especially the side stepper card, that I had tried first time last year. I love the cute image.
Thanks for spreading awareness through the blog hop.

SHartl said...

Wow, both of these cards are so cute but it's the sentiments that I really noticed too. Awesome sentiments of encouragement and really amazing cards. Thanks for helping support the hop. I learned a lot about epilepsy, especially not to hold someone down or put anything in their mouth when they are having a seizure.

Linda Mc Enery said...

These are both so wonderful! Purple is my favourite colour, so obviously I love them, but there's so much more to love than the colour! Beautiful images and sentiments and two beautiful designs! Thanks for sharing them with us at Penny's!

Karenladd said...

Thank you for sharing your beautiful cards on the hop and helping spread the word Lisa. My favorite is the sweet pup with his heart, but I just love the encouraging sentiments on both. The epilepsy fact that stood out for me is not to put anything in the person's mouth when they are having a seizure, contrary to popular belief.

Sue D said...

Wonderful cards. Love the cute puppy.
I learned that there are six main types of generalized seizures-- all involve loss of consciousness and typically happen without warning.

Subhashini said...

These are really great cards with wonderful sentiments! Thanks for spreading awareness through this hop

Darnell said...

Aren't these just the best encouraging sentiments! You have made lovely designs with the images, Lisa! Hugs, Darnell
