Calling All Sistah's

Hello Blogging Sistahs,

I am honored to be participating in the Calling all Sistahs Blog Hop!!  Breast Cancer has touched so many lives and several very special women in my life!  The first person to be touched by Breast Cancer was my sister-in-law 24 years ago and I am happy to say that she is still here with us today.  The next one was an Aunt of mine and then a close friend who is the Sistah that God forgot to give me and I am so very thankful that she is still here today!  That is why it is so important to check yourself by doing a monthly breast self-exam and yearly mammograms!!

CAS-UAL FRIDAY's  has their own line of stamps and dies mainly for Breast Cancer cards and it is called Calling All Sistahs and 50% of the profits from the sales of the Calling All Sistahs line goes to the National Breast Cancer Foundation, Inc. for research and medical help.

 You should have gotten here from Bonnie's blog, if not and you can go to CASual Fridays to start.

Here is my card for the Calling all Sistahs Blog Hop:


Victorian Velvet distress ink
Various papers from my stash
White embossing powder

For this card I started with gray paper as the base, I added the patterend paper after inking the edges with Picked Raspberry distress ink.  Next I stamped the Hope Ribbon with VersaMark onto a light pink paper and heat embossed it with Sparkle N Sprinkle Pink Lady embossing powder, then I cut it out using the Ruffled Ribbon Fri-Die, inked the edges Victorian Velvet distress ink and added that to the card.  I stamped the Healing Wings butterfly stamp with VersaMark and heat embossed it Sparkle N Sprinkle Petal Pink embossing powder and then rubbed some Victorian Velvet distress ink over it and fussy cut it out and added that to the middle of the Hope Ribbon.  I stamped the Calling All Sistahs sentiment stamp on dark pink paper with Versamark and heat embossed it with white embossing power. Then I cut it out like a banner and inked the edges with Picked Raspberry distress ink and added that to the card.

**There will be a $15 Gift Certificate given to 3 people that comment along the hop.**   Comments close on June 19th at midnight EST.

You can learn all about how Calling All Sistahs got started here.
