Calling All Sistahs May Reminder Post

Hello Sistahs and Bosom Buddies!!

It is the 17th of the month and that means that I am here with the CAS-ual Fridays Encouragement Squad to remind you to do your monthly self breast exam and schedule your mammogram if you haven't had one yet this year!!  Please stop by the Calling All Sistahs May Reminder post to see what the Encouragement Squad have made this month!!

Be sure to check out all the Calling All Sistahs collection of stamps and dies designed shortly after Michele, the owner of CAS-ual Fridays, was diagnosed  with Breast Cancer in 2015.  She designed them with the purpose of donating 50% profits to breast cancer awareness programs and to provide you with awesome stamps to remind and encourage your friends!

Here is my reminder card:


White card stock
Printed paper
Neenah Solar White paper
Assorted scraps
Black ink
Picked Raspberry distress oxide
Picked Raspberry distress ink

For this A2 card I started with white card stock for the base of the card.  I took a piece of printed paper (which I got for Mother's Day!!) inked the edges with Picked Raspberry distress ink and added to the base of the card.  I took a piece of Neenah Solar White paper and stamped the sentiments from the Calling All Sistahs stamp set and the Girlfriend stamp set with black ink.  I then took my blending tool and the Picked Raspberry distress oxide and rubbed that onto the paper and then spritzed it with water and dried it with my heat gun.  I then cut them down, inked the edges with Picked Raspberry distress ink, put some foam tape on the back and put them on the card.  I took some pink and blue paper scraps and the Friendly Flowers Fri-dies and cut out the flowers and placed them on the card.  I took a piece of green print paper and the lead die from the Posies Fri-dies set and cut out the leaves and arranged them on the card.  I just love piecing together several different sentiments to make a fun one for my card!

Be sure to stop by the CAS-ual Friday Blog to see what the other Girl Friday's from the Encouragement Squad have created for our May Sistahs Reminder!

Then why not stop by the CAS-ual Fridays store to see all the wonderful stamp sets there are to make cards of encouragement with!!  If you decide that there are one or two stamp sets that you just have to have then use this code: cas-comfort to get 15% off stamps and dies!!  Thank you Michele, for letting me pass this on to my blog followers!!

Tomorrow will be the start of a new Encouragement Challenge and we would love to have you participate!  You might even be the winner of the prize!!  I sure hope you will join us for this Challenge!!

Thanks for stopping by!
