Sparkles Monthly Challenges - Hearts

The theme for this months challenge over at Sparkles Monthly Challenge is 


This month we are sponsored by Di's Digi's 
They are offering a £10 spend in their store.
(We are a multi craft challenge blog so you can make anything you like as long as it has a heart some where on your make.)

So April is also Autisim Awareness Month so with this in mind I decided to combine the 2, hearts with the Puzzle piece/s. The green is to hang anywhere and the little blue ones are for key rings.

Why a puzzle piece for the symbol for autism? Here is a really simple explanation:

On a nationwide level, the Puzzle Piece symbol reflects the mystery and complexity of Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). Also, since every puzzle piece is different in some way, a puzzle piece accurately represents the diversity of the individuals affected. - Autism UGA

I have 2 children with Aspergers and my Brother is Autistic, so Autism month means a lot to me and my family as well as many other families, people/children with a diagnosis and carers around the world!

Thanks so much for popping by
