Calling All Sistahs - March Edition

Its that time of the month again ... time to remind all the women in your life to do their monthly self-exams and annual mammograms. This campaign was started by Michele Gross of CAS-ual Fridays upon her discovery and diagnosis of breast cancer. Michele designed the CAS-ual Fridays Calling All Sistahs collection to help us remind each other of this important campaign. Michele donates 50% of the proceeds of the sales of that line to the National Breast Cancer Foundation.

Did you know that one in eight women in the US (or one in nine women in Canada) will hear the diagnosis of invasive breast cancer during their lives. Take a look around, do you see eight (or nine) women - think about it, one average one of those women will be diagnosed with invasive breast cancer. I don't like those odds. We can try to increase the odds and through early detection, increase the survivor rate. We can do this by doing our monthly self exams and annual mammograms.

We'd love for you to join our blog hop. All you need to do is create a card using a CAS-ual Fridays product, preferably something from the Calling All Sistahs collection, but that's not imperative. Help us spread the word.

Three random commenters along the blog hop will receive a $15 gift certificate to the CAS-ual Fridays store. You need to leave a comment before 12am on the 19th of March to be eligible.

Here's my card


I used CAS-ual Fridays Word Ribbon stamp set. I inked up the word ribbon with Hero Arts Shadow Ink - bubble gum. To add some pop, I inked the sentiment from CAS-ual Fridays Calling All Sistahs stamp set with black ink and popped up the sentiment element with dimensionals. To complete the card, I added sequins from the exclusive Sistahood Sparkles sequin pack. 

Next on the blog hop is
