Calling All Sistahs Blog Hop!

Good Day --- it's the 17th of the month again and that means that it is time for the Calling All Sistahs Blog Hop....a hop dedicated to Breast Cancer Awareness.

First a little history of this special hop.....Shortly after CAS-ual Fridays owner Michele Gross was diagnosed with breast cancer,  she created Calling All Sistahs to help create breast cancer awareness beyond just the month of October-- by reminding you to do your self exams on the 17th of each month.

Calling All Sistahs Collection of stamps and dies were designed from the heart to make a difference. 

50% of the profits from this collection will be donated to breast cancer research and awareness programs in honor of all who have been, and will be, affected by breast cancer. 

I've created a card using stamps from the Calling All Sistahs Collection


I embossed my pink cardstock panel in a small hearts embossing folder for my background.  After laying down a wonky tilted panel - (honestly this gives me hives - I'm such a straight up girl!) I adhered a light grey rectangle of patterned paper.

Using the Tag Buddies Fri-Dies, I used the smallest two tags and diecut one in vellum - so soft and pretty - and embossed the sentiment in white embossing powder on the other tag.

I tied a black and white twine bow and adhered the tags.  Using Versafine black ink, I stamped another sentiment along the bottom.

Do you like my Breast Cancer beads??!  I've had them for years - always thinking that I will be making a bracelet or two - hasn't happened yet, but you never know Lol!

Now you will find your way to the amazing Jeanne Jachna to continue on our Calling All Sistahs Blog Hop!
