Welcome to our PHun 4 Pulmonary Hypertension Awareness Blog Hop.

We are sharing awareness on Pulmonary Hypertension, why early diagnosis is so important for PH patients! 

I am so honored to be a participant in today's PHun 4 PH Awarness Blog Hop

If you have arrived from Corinne's Blog then you are in the right place. However, if you just arrived why don’t you start at Betty's Blog, so you don’t miss any of the amazing creations.

Here is the card I made using this wonderful butterfly and awareness ribbon image by Betty Roberts of Simply Betty Stamps.


I used Spellbinders Grand Labels 4 for my dies, background papers from my stash, and a brand new ribbon from Ribbon Girl! (Brand new because I just got it a couple of days ago). The periwinkle flower is from my stash also. I colored my image with Copic Markers and paper pieced the zebra pattern onto the wings.


Now, for an important fact about Pulmonary Hypertension..............

DID YOU KNOW?  - PH affects both men and women...but women are 4 times more likely than men to be diagnosed with PH, and they are just as likely to have a delay in diagnosis.

For more information on Pulmonary Hypertension, visit

If you would like this wonderful image from Simply Betty Stamps that I used on my card, all you need to do is email Betty at  and give her the answer to the following question and she will send you the image. Also, if you would like to have the adorable free image that Tamara from The Stamping Chef has made for tomorrow's blog hop, email Tamara at  with the answer to the following question.

The question to answer for your free images is: "How many treatments are FDA approved for children with PH?"

Hint:  You will find the answer to the question on one of the blogs.

Now head over to Katya's Blog to see what she has created.

    1. Thanks, Amanda! I'm so thrilled you are following me!!

    2. Darcy this is so amazing. I think your card is fantastic. Love those colors and with the right touch of embellishments. I think I have lost the last month of my life. I do hope things have been fine with you. Being in Austin Texas for 3 weeks and them coming home and getting pneumonia and being laid up with that for another month. I was keeping all the posting and was becoming overwhelmed with all the beautiful posting and I was in no way going to get through them. So I decided to start fresh.
      Hugs, Pat
