our blog has turned pink and will remain that way for all of October.
As you know, breast cancer awareness is really important to me,

This month I urge you to make that mammogram appointment 
and remind all your sistahs to do the same.

Happy Tuesday!

Things happen.
Sometimes things happen because of the choices we make,
and sometimes things just happen to us.
Encouragement cards are perfect for these situations
whether it's an illness, a life challenge, or a big decision.

Girl Friday Nora
created this lovely encouragement card for you today.

She paired our Casual Comfort with Casual Trees Fri-Dies
and 4 Petal Fri-Dies.
I love the vibrant colors she chose-definitely colors of strength!
I really like the sweeping motion of the trees.

Enjoy your Tuesday.

Happy Sunday!

I had an incredible weekend in Greenwood Village, CO
at the Stamp & Scrap Papercrafts Expo!
I met some of the nicest cardmakers and scrapbookers
and we really had a great time.
A special thank you to everyone who stopped by my booth
and took some CAS-ual Fridays home with them :)

Girl Friday Lydia
has cooked up a fantastical card for you today.

She used Friend Fri-Dies with a sentiment from Girlfriend
and a very cool die cutting technique

She combined positive and negative die cuts!
I love that she cut the word from a circle and let the negative be.
Then she added the positive bits to start and finish the word.

Love this to pieces!

Happy Tuesday!

She used Twinkle

Aren't they adorable?!
These fun little bottles are full of color and sparkle and shine
and on the outside, they've got a little Twinkle.

Be sure to stop by Kimberly's blog
as she has instructions for how to make one for yourself.

September 17: Calling All Sistahs Blog Hop

Happy Saturday!
It's the 17th of the month
which means
Calling All Sistahs!!

This is your monthly reminder to
do your self breast exam
to make your appointment for your mammogram
if you are due for one.

After our August blog hop,
I was contacted by one of
our sistahs
who had just been newly diagnosed.
It broke my heart to hear her news,
but I'm relieved to say she caught this early so I am confidant she will be ok.
It's hard.
It's a real lot to go through.
There is so much waiting,
so much uncertainty
so many emotions
and it feels like it's happening too fast and too slow
all at the same time.
Believe me,
I don't want anyone to have to go through this,
but my mission
through Calling All Sistahs
is to create that critical and most necessary

the earlier you can catch it, the better fighting chance you have.
If you do have to do this,
my sincere wish is that
you will be doing it knowing
you've got this!!

Fight to win sistahs!!

I've got a list of fabulous sistahs
who have created some eye candy for you today
on our Girl Power hop.
Please leave them some love as you hop through,
3 of you will win a prize just for commenting!

For more info on how to be a stop on our hop,
please join us on our
or see Heather's post at the end of the hop if you're not a facebooker ;)

And away you go!! :)

CAS-ual Fridays <<<You are here

Thank you for hopping with us.
Please check yourself
and remind your sistahs to do the same.

Happy Monday!

I have a beautiful card to share with you today from
 She used our Wonderful Words stamp set

I really like the vellum overlay on the fun pattern paper.
Her fussy cute flowers are a really pretty focal point.

Kinda makes me feel like getting inky! :)

Happy Saturday!

Fall is in the air!
Our trees are beginning to turn colors already,
the mornings are becoming crisper
the evenings cooler,
and the sun is starting to retire earlier.

has a fabulous fall card for you today
to get your fall creative mojo going.

Let's just take a moment to take in all that loveliness...

She used our Acorn Fri-Dies and fun pattern paper
to create her adorable leaves and acorn
that sit happily on her Scallop Tag.
I love all the colors she used and the fun mix of patterns!
She finished it off with sentiments from Autumn Blessings.
