Calling all Sistahs: Sistahood Blog Hop

Calling all sistahs! It's the 17th of the month!



Did you know that one in eight women in the US will develop invasive breast cancer in her lifetime? Similarly, in Australia, one in eight women will be diagnosed before the age of 85. 

Without doubt, we all know someone who has been affected by breast cancer - whether through a diagnosis of their own, a family member or a friend. Over at CAS-ual Fridays Stamps,  Michele has her own story to tell which can be found here - this has led to her developing a range of stamps in aid of the breast cancer cause. Fifty percent of the profit from sales in the Calling all Sistahs range goes to National Breast Cancer Foundation Inc, to help aid their research into treatment and ultimately find a cure for this hideous disease. 

As a reminder to check your breasts each month on the 17th and to support the cause, CAS-ual Fridays has organised a Sistahood Blog Hop - you have until 11.59pm on May 19th to leave a comment at any of the blogs below and be in with a chance of winning a $15.00 gift certificate for the store:





For my card, I used the Hope Ribbon set with the co-ordinating Ruffled Ribbon Fri-die. I used a variety of pink Copics to colour in each of the teeny tiny flowers, then made the image 'pop' by placing it against a black die cut of the Ruffled Ribbon. The sentiment is from the same set.

Next on the hop is the very talented Vicki so why not swing by and say hello - and don't forget, the aim of this hop is to remind all of you that you must regularly check your breasts for any unusual lumps, bumps and changes. 

Thanks for popping by,

Claire x
