Calling All Sistahs' Blog Hop - July

UPDATE - I was away from home and experiencing technical difficulties and was unable to "officially" join the 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 and 1 in 9 women in Canada will develop invasive breast cancer in her lifetime. Look around, do you see 8 (or 9) 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 July will be considered for the gift certificates.

Calling All Sistahs

Here are those participating in this month's blog hop.

And here's my card

I used CAS-ual Friday's Calling All Sistahs stamp set with two shades of pink ink.  I tried to create a word cluster type of effect. The large scripty words were made sparkly by adding Wink of Stella to them. Here's a close up.

To further up the sparkle, I added a few sequins.
