JUST ADD BLUE.....

We have a special challenge this week at JUST ADD INK to help raise awareness of Depression and Anxiety.  The whole month of October is Anxiety and Depression Awareness Month.

Over a million people in Australia and New Zealand live with depression. Over two million have an anxiety disorder. With the right treatment, most people recover. 

It's easy to help raise awareness. Sometimes the simplest acts have the greatest impact - just talking openly about anxiety and depression helps reduce the stigma. 

beyondblue Anxiety and Depression Awareness Month provides an opportunity for workplaces, community groups and individuals to take part in activities to raise awareness of anxiety and depression, and help reduce the associated stigma.

 Find out more at beyondblue.org.au

 While my entry was made before this challenge was set, it is still very BLUE and I wanted to share it with you anyway.  Who said Christmas cards had to be red, green and gold!!  I have used Tree Trimmings, Welcome Christmas and three different Blues to create this card.  Night of Navy, Bashful Blue and the new Marina Mist.  I have also added a bit of bling in the form of the stick on Rhinestones Stampin' Up! released in the new catalogue - arent they yummy?

Christmas is coming up so fast and if you haven't made a start to your cards, why not start with this one.  I can bring this class to you.  Email ME for more information!

In the meantime, pop over to JAI and have a look at the beautiful entries from the Design Team this week.  Add yours and play along!
