Hi everyone! Very happy today to be taking part in the Purple Day Blog Hop! As a group of crafty friends we are joining in with the hop today to increase awareness of epilepsy and how it effects peoples lives.
Purple day is a worldwide event to dispel common myths and fears about this neurological disorder and to reduce social stigmas associated with it. If you want to make a difference scan through this bit of blurb that will let you know what to do if someone you know has a seizure!

Thanks for joining the hop today! 

I am very happy to be sponsored by Dr.Digi's House of Stamps  and I have used Dumb Bell Derek for my purple card!

  1. Super cute card, Annabel! Dr. Digi's images are always so fun! 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!

    On another note, do you have a snake that you've colored? I thought you did but couldn't find it. :,

    1. Hum, not done a snake, were you looking for scales? I think the best scales I have done were either for you on Gelsey, or perhaps on the all dressed up monsters...

  8. Hi, Annabel! Thank you for sponsoring this hop and joining in with your fun card. You are the most amazing colorist!! Everything you touch comes to life. I am glad to be a part of this hop and to be reminded of some important things abt someone having a noting the time the seizure started.

  14. Such a lovely card, great Coloring.

  15. I like how you colored this fun image!

  16. Such a great card! Thanks for spreading awareness with this great hop

  17. Wow, you colored up this hilarious image in such an amazing way! Thanks for sharing it and supporting the hop. I learned not to put anything in a person's mouth when they're having a seizure or to hold them down.

  18. This just makes me chuckle, with that fun image! Thanks for joining the hop and sharing your beautifully colored card. The fact that stands out for me is not to put anything in a person's mouth when they are having a seizure, contrary to popular belief.

  19. Your card is a real hoot, Annabel!! I love it! (Please leave me out of your prize draw.) Take care and be safe! Hugs, Darnell
