I am here with the first of three cards I made for the 3rd Annual Turner Syndrome Awareness Hop hostessed by the lovely Lori Kobular and her beautiful daughter, Julie. I have participated in this Hop for several years, but before that I had never heard of Turner Syndrome.
Here's a little of what I have learned about Turner Syndrome that I have cut and pasted from Lori's post:
Turner Syndrome is a genetic disorder where a female is born missing all or part of her second X chromosome leaving her with life-long medical issues and learning disabilities. This condition occurs one in 2,000 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!
Since this syndrome only occurs in females, they have adopted the slogan "It's a Girl Thing". Somewhere in the back of my mind, I thought I remembered a girly stamp set in my stash with that sentiment..... Voila!! I was thrilled to find an older Sweet 'n Sassy stamp set had just what I was looking for!
Butterflies are also motifs for Turner Syndrome Awareness Events. I found this stamped panel in my stash which I colored and embellished for my card. I am not that great at coloring, as you can see, but I still like these pretty butterflies.
Supplies Used Include:Hope you liked my card and learned a little bit about Turner Syndrome at the same time. Thank you for stopping by and I'd love to see you join in the Hop!
