Calling All Sistahs Blog Hop

Hello my sweet crafty friends!  Today I'm participating in the Calling All Sistahs Blog Hop.  This is a blog hop started by Michele, the owner of CAS-ual Friday Stamps, to remind all of the sistahs out there to do their monthly breast self-exams and have their yearly mammograms.  We cherish all of you and wouldn't want to lose a single one of you to this terrible disease! 

To make my card today I started with a piece of watercolor paper which I taped down on a wood board to help keep it flat.  I used my Kuretake Gainsai Tambi watercolors to paint rainbow stripes.  I added some water droplets to the card to pull up some of the color (the white splotches).  When it was completely dry I used the Hope Ribbon and Calling All Sistahs stamp sets to do some white embossing.  I added a few little hearts that I cut from Fun-Fetti Fri-Dies to my card and coated them with glossy accents.  Very simple card but the message is so important, Girl, get 'em squeezed!

The CAS-ual Friday store has a wonderful line of stamps, the Calling All Sistahs line, to help you get the word out to your friends and family.  50% of the profits from the sales of the Calling All Sistahs line goes to National Breast Cancer Foundation, Inc. for research & medical help!

I hope that you'll hop along with us!  There will be a $15.00 gift certificate to the CAS-ual Fridays store given to 3 people who comment along the hop.

The next stop on the hop is PENNY WARD!
