Calling all Sistahs Blog Hop

Hello My Dear Bosom Buddies,

Today is the 17th of the month and you know what that means ~ that I am here to remind you to:

 1.)  do your breast self exam 

2.)  schedule your yearly mammogram if you haven't had your mammogram for this year done yet ~  schedule it today! 

 3.)  stop at all the blog posts and leave a comment ~ you could be one of the three lucky commenters to win a $15 Gift Certificate to the CAS-ual Fridays store. 

Michele, the owner of CAS-ual Fridays Stamps, started this blog hop as a reminder for all women!

Calling All Sistahs Blog Hop!!

You should have gotten here from Shona Chambers Blog

Here is my card:


White Embossing powder
Watercolor pencils
Versa mark
Kraft card stock
White card stock

For this A2 card I started by stamping all the different stamps with Versa mark onto Kraft card stock and then heat embossing with White embossing powder.  I used 3 different pink watercolor pencils to color in the butterflies.  I mounted the Kraft card stock onto the white card stock.
