Calling All Sistahs Blog Hop

Calling All Sistahs is a campaign started by Michele Gross of CAS-ual Fridays Stamps after her discovery of breast cancer.   The idea behind it is to remind our sistahs to do their monthly self exams and yearly mammograms.  Michele designed the Calling All Sistahs collection during her cancer treatment and is now donating 50% of her profits from that line to National Breast Cancer Foundation.  This is an important reminder for all my sistahs.

Did you know that 1 in 8 women in the US (I'm not sure what the stats are for other countries. I'm guessing that it's similar here in Canada. OK, I just looked it up for 2015, it's 1 in 9 women in Canada) will develop invasive breast cancer in her lifetime. Look around, do you see 8 women? Think about it, on average, one of them will develop breast cancer. It's up to us to do something to do what we can to reduce that incidence. Annual mammograms and monthly self exams are one way for us to take an active role. This is your monthly reminder.

Michele is being super generous by offering 3 - $15 gift certificates to CAS-ual Fridays Stamps to those leaving comments on the various stops of the blog hop. Only the comments left before 12:00am on the 19th of June will be considered for the gift certificates.

Here's my card
I used the Hope Ribbon stamp set by CAS-ual Fridays. For the ribbon, I inked it up with Hero Arts Bubble Gum Shadow Ink. To add a bit of dimension, I tapped Picked Raspberry distress ink randomly before stamping the image. The sentiment is from the same stamp set, inked also inked with Bubble Gum shadow ink. I added a few sequins for a bit of sparkle.

Thanks for visiting. Please head to Kim Sherrod as she is the next stop on the Blog Hop.
