Calling all Sistahs! Better Check Yourself!

Thanks for stopping by! On the 17th of the month CAS-ual Fridays Stamps sponsors a blog hop to remind you and the important women in your life to make sure you're doing your monthly breast self-exam and scheduling a yearly mammogram. You might just save a life!

1 in 8 women in the U.S. will develop invasive breast cancer in her lifetime. Early detection is so important for treatment! We want all the women in our lives to know how important they are to us and how much we want them to live strong healthy lives.

CAS-ual Fridays Stamps owner Michele is a survivor. She designed a line of stamps to provide support and to promote awareness. 50% of the sale of products in the "Calling All Sistahs" campaign are donated to breast cancer research and awareness.

If you're following along on the hop you should have reach
ed me Kara Stainbrook 's blog. If you'd like to start from the beginning and get all the details you can start here at CAS-ual Fridays Stamps.

Our theme this month is Girl Power! I started my card by creating a simple colorblock background.
Next I stamped the Hope Ribbon in light pink to look like a watermark on a panel of white card stock.  I topped that with the Never Give Up sentiment from the "Dream Then Do" set.   I adhered it to the base with adhesive foam tape so it would have some dimension.  A sprinkle of enamel dots (in pink of course) to finish this off.  

The next stop on your hop is Kelly Griglione!!  Please leave me a comment. Thre are THREE $15 gift certificates for CAS-ual Fridays Stamps up for grabs! Who knows? The winner could be you!! But you have to leave a comment to enter. You have until 12 am to leave a comment!

Here's the complete blog hop list for your convenience.

This is such a great sentiment! I love the way you've stamped it in black over the soft pink ribbon and then layered it on ombre background. Very nice reminder, Jeanne.
