"It's A Girl Thing" Turner Syndrome Awareness Inaugural Blog Hop!

Friday, February 1, 2019


Hello Blogging Friends!!  I'm happy to be joining my friend Lori in her "It's A Girl Thing" Turner Syndrome Awareness Inaugural Blog Hop! Make sure to ready below to see how you can be entered to win one of many great prizes. In addition to the fabulous sponsors, myself along with many of the other designers are offering up our own prize. 

Leave a comment below, by February 7th, for your chance to win a $20 gift certificate to Whimsy Stamps, one of my favorite stores, purchased by me, which also happens to be one of the amazing sponsors - open to all readers. Winner will be announced on my blog along with the TSA blog on February 15th.





Turner Syndrome is a genetic disorder where a female is born with only one X chromosome, instead of two, leaving her with life-long medical issues and learning disabilities. This condition occurs one in 2,500 female births worldwide, but is more common among pregnancies that do not survive to full term. That is why Turner Syndrome Females are considered MIRACLES!







Nineteen caring Sponsors and eleven DT Members have partnered with us to bring Turner Syndrome Awareness to the Public. 


HOW TO WIN:



  • Leave a comment on the TS Awareness Home Blog Post stating at least one thing you learned about Turner Syndrome. Our Tab titled About Turner Syndrome has a pictorial explanation of many of the symptoms or limitations faced by TS females.
  • Leave a comment on one or more DT blog hop posts. 
  • Prizes will be awarded randomly from the comments left on 19 of the DT blog hop posts + by 11 of the designers who are awarding prizes of their own. So the more posts you visit and comment on, the more likely you are to win a prize. Don't forget! You must also leave one comment on the Home Blog, too.
  • We hope this will bring an awareness not only about Turner Syndrome in females, but that if any human being seems a bit out of the ordinary, there could be a health-related or genetic reason for it, and it would be nice to give everyone the benefit of the doubt in our daily lives.
Thanks for learning About Turner Syndrome




My TS related project uses a few colors from the TS official color board:





For my card today, I started by pulling out a sheet from the Therm O Web & Gina K Designs Bold Backdrops Foil-mates. I ran it through my Minc machine with some green foil.

I then die cut both pieces of the Layered Butterflies die set from Spellbinders with white card stock. I used some inks to blend some color on. You can't tell in the picture but I added some Clear Wink of Stella to the light blue portions.

I added a stamped sentiment along with some clear gems and my card is done. I hope you've been inspired today.

Thanks for participating in this blog hop, Alanna. I wasn't aware of this syndrome and it was enlightening to read about it. Thank you for that. Your card is filled with beauty and hope, much like the pictures in the information showed. How lovely is that! I hope you have a nice weekend and that your team of choice (um, the Rams, right?) win the Super Bowl. :)
