Callin' All Sistahs - December Edition

It's that time of the month ...

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 annual 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 to three random winners, selected from those leaving comments on the various stops of the blog hop, $15 gift certificates to CASual Fridays Stamps.  Only the comments left before 12:00am (EDT) on the 19th of December will be considered for the great prize.

We'd love to have you join us on this important Blog Hop. The Calling All Sistahs' Blog Hop will require the use of any CASual Fridays product, no longer restricted to the Calling All Sistahs' product line. Won't you join us and help us to spread the word?

Here's my card

I thought that I'd make a word cluster cards because I love all the sentiments on CAS-ual Fridays' Calling All Sistahs stamp set. Since this month's theme was "Make Time", I stamped these words in a contrasting gray. I didn't have a sentiment that would work, so I used the "Make" from Altenew's Simple Flowers stamp set (the sentiment is actually You make me happy) and the "Time" from Paper Smooches' Birthday Sampler stamp set (the sentiment is actually Party Time).

Next stop on the blog hop is Lydia Evans

Here's the complete blog hop list
