Welcome to the January Calling all Sistahs Blog Hop.
Every month on the 17th designers from all over the globe come together to give you new card inspirations and remind you to check the SISTAHS!
Today Cas-ual Fridays has collaborated with Pretty Pink Posh to bring you a special mix of sequins aptly named Sistahood Sparkle.
Light , Medium and dark Pinks as well as Sparkly Clear in a variety of sizes.
It's just a must have for all the Breast Cancer, Valentines, Girly cards you are about to make.
The Sistahood Sparkle sequin mix is available in the Cas-ual Fridays shop now and when they are gone...
they are gone for good!
I knew I wanted to make a shaker, so I took the adorable flower stamp from the Mon Ami set, ran it through my Silhouette PicScan and made a die cut. Obviously I resized it . :)
Front of card has been splattered with paint.
Funky ribbon was found at Michaels.
Stamped my favorite sentiment from the Be stamp set using VersaFine Onyx Black ink.
Now for my story...and I'm sticking to it:
I had a Mammogram in July 2013.
Found a lump in October 2013
You do realize that was only 3 months!!!!!
Cancer can grow and spread sooooo fast.
Make sure to check yourself EVERY month...how about today?!?
Double Mastectomy (because hey, I am not looking to do all this incert bad word again).
Six rounds of chemo.
1 year of Herceptin treatments every three weeks.
Yes I went bald (temporary thing).
Yes I learned to live for the moment.
Yes I learned to appreciate all I have.
Yes, cancer has changed me forever...in a good way!
No...It was no picnic and definitely not for sissies!
So there you have it.
My story and inspiration to remind you to check those Sistahs monthly.
