This blog hop was put together by Michele (the owner of CAS-ual Fridays Stamps) to remind us all to do our breast checks. Even though time is flying by so fast at the moment, you still need to take the time to do this simple check as early detection can make a huge difference!! As I've mentioned in previous posts I never used to do breast checks until I was involved with this and didn't know what to do. I found this video on YouTube which is very informative and easy to follow.
As this is a blog hop, you should have arrived here from the blog A Creative Touch where the talented and lovely Nora will have inspired you with her project I'm sure. If you've lost your way and would like to start at the beginning, pop over to the CAS-ual Fridays Stamps Blog to see the full blog hop list and and read about some prizes!!!
The theme for this months blog hop is 'Girl Power' so I kept to the pink colours but added some fighting words:
I love an ombre effect and this one was very quick and easy to put together. I grabbed some inks from Mama Elephant and Altenew and stamped the 'Girl' (from Calling All Sistahs) in two lines using each ink colour. For the sentiment I stamped and heat embossed the sentiment (also from Calling All Sistahs) in white on a strip of vellum and wrapped around the card front. And for a bit more shine I glued on some sequins from Neat and Tangled.
If you haven't seen the Calling All Sistahs Collection and would like to purchase some of the products, please use my special 'Girl Friday' code to save yourself a few dollars. Also 50% of each sale of these products are donated to Breast Cancer research and awareness programmes, so you not only get new craft goodies but are helping to 'fight the fight' at the same time!!!
I'm also going to link this card to two challenges:
Simon Says Stamp - Wednesday Challenge (Clean and Simple)
Stamplorations - September CAS Challenge
Your next stop on the hop is the amazing and fabulous Vicki of All I Do is Stamp and I know she will have a stunning card to share with you. Thank you so much for hopping along and I hope at the end you will spend a few minutes doing your breast check, just a few minutes could save your life.
