Stand up, Be Strong......

There's an awareness campaign going on for domestic violence Hop To Stop and knowing the purpose I cannot stay behind to show the support.

HopToStop

I consider myself very fortunate that I never had to go through domestic violence but I also know others are not so fortunate. There are so many who are silently bearing it all. Standing from out we tend to judge the victims and simply say they should be strong and fight back but little so we realize how difficult it is for the victim to do it with their battered confidence and hope. But I strongly believe that the best way to end is that the person needs to Stand up and Be Strong to say.........No I will not take it any more. This would be possible only when, we, as a community show support to the victim that yes we stand behind them.

Here is my take on this theme.

Just a simple card with a message.

  4. LOL , I agree, splatter is a whole nother art form! It has a mind of its own and the more you try to place the splats the faster your page fills up!!!!
    Beautiful, great meaning and simplicity makes it beautiful
