Calling All Sistahs August Blog Hop

**This is one of two posts I have posted today, if you are looking for the Scrapy Land Challenge #48 please go here.

Hello Sistahs!!

Well it is Augusts 17th and that means the start of another new Calling All Sistahs blog hop and this month we are doing the hop with a TWIST!  The TWIST is the theme for this month is Remind a Sistah Hop!!  Our goal is to make a card to remind one of our Sistahs to "check herself" and to actually mail it out to a Sistah to remind her!

Here is my card for the Calling All Sistahs August Blog Hop:


Victorian Velvet distress ink
Black ink 
Various papers from my stash

For this 5 x 7 inch card I started with white card stock for the base of the card and then I added some pink gingham paper after inking the edges with Victorian Velvet distress ink.  Next I stamped the sentiments from the CAS-UAL Fridays Calling All Sistahs stamp set with black ink onto white paper.  I cut out the different sayings with the Lil' Inker Designs Stitched Mats; Square and Rectangle, inked each of the edges with Victorian Velvet distress ink and added them to the card.  I then cut out the Die-versions Whispers Pretty Wings die and the My Creative Time Mini Butterfly dies in pink paper and added them to the card.
