Purple Day Blog Hop! Win this card! (Event closed)

This event is now over and the winner will be announced on the 2nd April.

Hi everyone and welcome to the Purple Day Blog Hop! This hop was organised by my friend Fikreta to support Epilepsy Awareness! Purple Day, on the 26th March, is when everyone comes together to share knowledge and reduce the stigma associated with Epilepsy. I've added the official info and link at the bottom of this post, please read if you have time.

I stole this lovely purple kitty from Fiki, don't tell her ;)

Here is the blog hop list, please pop around the hop if you can, there are some great purple projects and fab giveaways to take part in!
You are here  →→ Annabel ←←You are here

And now for my purple creation using the Cheshire Cat digistamp from Dr.Digi's! (I know it's not my normal friday Dr.Digi slot but I thought he would make an awesome purple card, so I am popping in an extra Dr.Digi card today)

I kept to a mainly purple theme and coloured him with polychromo pencils! Do you think he looks like he should be up on the notice board in your Dentist's reception? lol.

Font is the Dr.Digi font called Samdan. Background paper from the stash.

If you would like to win this card, I am going to randomly select someone who comments on this post and will send it to you after the end of the hop on the 31st.

 So please make sure I have a way to contact you if you win! If you don't have a blog yourself with contact details on, keep an eye on my blog for the winner to be announced and then contact me! (eekbob1@hotmail.com) You can sign up for email updates if you want a handy way to be notified. (It's in the column on the right hand side →→→)

This offer is open internationally and is not in conjunction with anyone but me. I will need to ask your address if you win but I will not retain is after your card has been posted.

A bit of info!

50 Million People have epilepsy world wide.
It is estimate 1 in 100 people have it.
In 50% of the cases the cause is unknown.

Purple Day is a global grassroots event formed with the intention to increase worldwide awareness of epilepsy, and to dispel common myths and fears of this neurological disorder. Further intentions of this movement are to reduce the social stigmas commonly endured by many individuals afflicted with the condition; to provide assurance and advocacy to those living with epilepsy that they are not alone in their ongoing endurance; and to initiate individuals living with the condition to take action in their communities to achieve these aims.
 The day occurs annually on March 26.
