CAS03 July Challenge Post

Everyone could use a little encouragement from time to time.  Wouldn't it be nice to have a stash of cards you could send to a friend or loved one who could use a bright spot in their day?  Our challenge is here to help you with that.  On the 18th of each month we will start a new challenge with a new inspiration photo.

The rules are simple:
1. Make an encouragement card inspired by the photo or colors or both.
2. Link up here by 12am EST on the 13th
3. Share with your friends and followers so we can get the word out about our new blog.

One person will win a $25 gift code to use on anything in the CAS-ual Fridays Stamps store.  All products are welcome, but if you use CAS-ual Fridays stamps or dies on your card, Michele will DOUBLE your prize!!!

Are you ready to see this month's inspiration that will take you away?

Calling All Sistahs Reminder Post

It's the 17th of the month and I'm here with my Encouragement Squad to remind you to do your self breast exams and make your mammogram appointment if you've forgotten. 

I'm still here because of early detection. 

There is always talk about finding a cure. 

I'm not a doctor. I have no medical background. But I did crush this disease. And I'm here to tell you that this disease is curable especially if you can catch it early. The cures are there, they aren't easy or pleasant but this is a curable disease. 

My hope is that one day they will discover a prevention for it. Now wouldn't that be something?!

Do your checks. Tell your friends, your family, anyone who matters to you... your sistahs to do their checks too. 

Finding out you have it sucks. Not gonna lie. 
But crushing it because you caught it early...that's priceless.

My sistahs are here with me today to delight you with their creations.
Be sure to check out my Calling All Sistahs collection of stamps and dies designed shortly after I was diagnosed in 2015 with the purpose donating 50% of its profits to breast cancer awareness programs and to provide you all with awesome stamps to remind and encourage your friends. 

Enjoy the parade of hopeful cards and then please join us tomorrow to check out the new theme for our monthly Encouragement Challenge! We'd love to have you play along :)
