Besides St. Patrick's Day, do you know what day it is today? It is the 17th of the month and it is time for our monthly blog hop to remind all the sistahs out there to do your monthly self exam of your breasts and make your mammogram appointment if you are due. I just made mine yesterday and this one is a little anxiety producing because it is the first mammogram I will have after my breast cancer surgery last September. But if I can be brave and make my appointment so can you....we got this sistahs! If you want to read my whole story as to how this blog hop literally saved my life last year just click HERE.
I am sending this card to a dear friend that I met at the hospital in my pre-surgical class. She and I had surgery to remove our breast cancer on the same day by the same doctor and will forever be lifelong friends. She is having her first post-op mammogram on Monday and I want to encourage her.
Here is my card:
Don't you just love those sweet little flowers? They were made with my Fri-Dies from CAS-ual Fridays and of course the stamp and die on the card are from the Calling All Sistahs collection. Do you know that Michelle, the owner of CAS-ual Fridays herself has overcome that nasty breast cancer monster and she donates a portion of all the profits on these stamps and dies? She is also offering prizes to 3 random commenters on blogs in this hop so make sure you check out all the inspiration and talent along the way. And there are some very touching stories also. The truth is that all of us have been touched by breast cancer in some way. This is one small thing that I can do to give back.
The next stop on the hop is the extremely talented Mary Moisan
