It is the 17th of the month and you know what that means....it is time for your monthly reminder to do a breast self exam and if you are due, make the appointment for your annual mammogram. Remind you friends, mothers, sisters and co-workers also. It could save a life. My routine screening mammogram and this blog hop saved my life. For reals.....you can read the whole story HERE
It also means that iit is time for the CAS-ual Fridays Calling All Sistahs Blog Hop. I made a card to send to a newly diagnosed friend. Do you know that in the US breast cancer strikes 1 out of every 8 women? Several of us on this blog hop have been one of those 1 in 8 and all of us know someone who has been touched with this horrible disease. Here is my card:
I used a sentiment from The Calling All Sistahs Collection ....this set is called Word Ribbon. The sequins are a special mix from Pretty Pink Posh mixed exclusively for CAS-ual Fridays and they are gorgeous. Michele, the owner of CAS-ual Fridays and herself a breast cancer survivor donates a portion of the profits on all the products in this collection to breast cancer research. You can see all the stamps and products in the Calling All Sistahs Collection HERE
If you are on this blog hop you came from the fabulous blog of Melissa Miller and the next stop on this inspirational hop is the extremely talented Shona Chambers from down under in New Zealand. Wait until you see her card....it will knock your socks off! Be sure to comment on all our blogs because two randomly chosen commenters will receive a $15 shopping credit to the CAS-ual Fridays store. Please comment by February 19th.
Thanks for stopping by and remember to check yourselves and get 'em squeezed!
