Calling All Sistahs April Reminder Post

Hello Sistahs!!

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 April 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:


Pink fun foam
White card stock
Neenah solar white paper
Wow embossing powder
Picked Raspberry Oxide
Spun Sugar Oxide
Picked Raspberry distress ink
Pink & White bakers twine
Love & Be Loved charm
Patterned Paper

For this A2 card I started with white card stock for the base of the card.  I took a piece of Neenah solar white paper, the Heart to Heart stamp and some Versamark and stamped that onto the paper. I tooks some Wow embossing powder and heat embossed the hearts onto the paper. I then took some Spun Sugar Oxide and Picked Raspberry Oxide and rubbed them onto my craft mat and spritzed it with water and then ran my stamped paper through the ink and let it dry.  Once the paper was dry I inked the edges with Picked Raspberry distress ink and attached that to the card base.  I then took the patterned paper and the Ruffled Ribbon die and cut out the hope ribbon.  I inked the edges of the Ruffled Ribbon with Picked Raspberry distress ink and attached that to the fun foam that I cut out with the same Ruffled Ribbon die and then added that to the card.  I took the Pink & White bakers twine and wrapped that around the card several times and slipped the charm onto the bakers twine and then tied it in a knot.

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 April 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!!
