Hi, its the 17th of the month again and time for the “Calling All Sistahs” Cancer Awareness Blog hop! Every month on this day, we join this hop to remind you to check yourself or schedule that mammography if you haven’t had one recently. Heres a link that shows you how to examine yourself. Early detection can save a life as Michele Gross, of CAS-ual Fridays Stamps discovered, after her own discovery of breast cancer. Because of the early detection, she recovered and started this monthly awareness campaign to remind all women to do regular self exams and yearly mammograms.
This month I decided to do an elegant card in black and gold using CASual Friday stamps, as a tribute to all those who have fought or who are fighting the battle of breast cancer. I have not gone through it myself but I imagine it must be hard to hang on to your self esteem when you are losing your hair to chemo or even your breasts to a mastectomy. I just want to say that the courage you have to go through all that and beat cancer, makes you one classy lady and I want to offer this shaker card to one of you. Just leave a comment below and I’ll pick one of you incredible ladies to send this card to.
I made this shaker card after this card (Majestic Bloom) by Natasha of Znatka2007 who makes amazing interactive cards. I heat embossed everything with Wow embossing powder. The sequins from Pretty Pink Posh are actually only pink and white and are a special edition made for CASual Friday Calling All Sistahs collection. As I can’t add a video on my blog, you can see this card in action on my Instagram account here.
CAS-ual Friday is also giving away 15$ gift vouchers to their store to 3 commenters who comment along the blog hop by 12am EDT on the 19th of March. Here is the full blog hop list. Be sure to go and see what amazing cards the others have made and leave them some love too!
