Autism Awareness Bear

Well it's Monday.  That means it's a brand new week and I have to say that I'm honestly not sure I'm ready for it.  LOL  I think I'd rather just take a break from the 9 to 5 weekday struggle and sit home and just craft for a while.  But who of us wouldn't, right?  Oh well, at least we had the weekend.
So today I have a card to share that I'm sending to a precious young man.  I belong to a group called I Run 4.  What this group does is match those of us who have the ability to get out there and run (or do other physical activities) with those who cannot.  Last year I was matched with a special young man who is autistic.  So when I saw the I Love Someone With Autism file from Marjorie Ann Designs I knew that I had to create something with it.
To create my card I decided to use my Distress Inks by Tim Holtz and make my own background.  I simply applied ink to a foam pad on my blending tool and then I rubbed it across my card.
After applying my bear to the card I decided to add skittles from DoubleClick Connections.

The stamped sentiment is from the Scrappy Moms Stamps set titled Ready, Set, Go.
