May Calling All Sistahs Blog Hop!

Hi there!!   Thanks for joining us for the May Calling All Sistahs Blog Hop!  It's such an awesome reminder for you to CHECK YOURSELF each and every month!!  Kudos to Michele & Heather for everything they've done to organize this hop!!  I personally had to have breast surgery in April 2014.   I can't tell you how very relieved I was to hear the doctor say "no cancerous cells were found".   I'll never forget it!

My card uses one of the Scallop Tag Fri-Dies as the focal point.  I covered a piece of cardstock with strips of pink and silvery grey washi tape, then die cut the tag.   I also die cut the Hope Fri-Die from the tag so that I could use the die cut inlay technique.   I replaced the word with a cut from pink cardstock.  I stenciled the background with grey ink and added the supportive sentiment from the Calling All Sistahs stamp set, heat embossed with grey.  I finished the card with a bit of grey baker's twine and silver sequins from Pretty Pink Posh.  Did you know that  CFS  donates 50% of the profits from items in the Calling All Sistahs collection to breast cancer research and awareness programs?   That's so awesome right?!?! Woo-hoo!

  2. Love the way you did your tag. Great ideas...card and tag. Thanks. Thanks for sharing your life 'tidbit.' I go back tomorrow for followup tests. Not sure what I'll hear, but it's in God's hands to see me through this (good or bad).

  18. To update you: I got the results back and "no cancer." I was so happy, I cried and hugged the nurse. We both had a good laugh after. Thanks for the prayers. They kept me positive through it all. (a little sore, but I'll take sore any day). Hugs!
