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. This month, Michele is adding a special sequins mix, Sistahood Sparkle from Pretty Pink Posh, designed exclusively for the Calling All Sistahs line at CAS-ual Fridays Stamps. Quantities are limited and once they're gone, that's they're gone!
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.
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?
Unfortunately, my package of Sistahood Sparkles is sparkling up the post office. However, I made my card in advance, hoping that there would be a package in my mailbox today. I added my own sequins to add that bit of sparkle, I love.
Here's my card
It's a simple one this month. I used clear embossing powder with stamps from CAS-ual Fridays Stamps Word Ribbon stamp set. I added colour with distress inks (spun sugar and picked raspberry) with ink blending tools.
