Hi everyone it is that time of the month again. Time to do your monthly self breast examination and if it is time book your mammogram.
This month's blog hop has a theme "Remind a Sistah". As you already may know we hop on the 17th of each month, the anniversary of the day Michelle Saugstad Gross, owner of CAS-ual Fridays discovered her lump. This goal of this Blog Hop to promote the importance of early detection and to remind our sistahs to do their self breast exams. It's important to Michelle to be able to give back and pay it forward, so she donates 50% of the profits from her special Calling All Sistahs Collection to Nationalbreastcancer.org.
My card this month is simple and straight to the point.
We have over 20 bloggers this month. Please visit each one and leave a comment by August 19th, for your chance to win 1 of 3 $15 gift certificates to the Casual Fridays store.
The latest Stamp of Approval Collection by Catherine Pooler is amazing!! I received my box of stamps and dies a few days ago and have been creating ever since. Here is what I made.
*All stamps and Dies from the Lovely Notes SOA Collection except where noted*
On this first card I also used the Wild Floral stamp set by Catherine Pooler Designs.
The "You are" portion of this sentiment is from the Mondo Magnolia stamp set from Ellen Hutson.
The printed paper is from Gina K Designs
The Merry Christmas sentiment is from the Holiday Flourishes stamp set by the Ton and was in the Holiday Magic SOA Collection
The Happy Birthday sentiment is from Tim Holtz's Crazy Talk stamp set by Stampers Anonymous. The fairy is from the Fairy Friends stamp set by Lawn Fawn

Hi all, This week is my last week as Guest Design Team member over at StampNation. I have enjoyed every minute of it. This week we were asked to draw inspiration from one of the StampNation members Gallery she goes by Owleyes. I browsed her Gallery a few times and one card really stood out to me. My card today is a CASE of her Birthday card. I used the same layout and colors, but different stamps.
I used the HB2U stamp set from Sugar Pea Designs for the Young at Heart Stamp of Approval Collection. This set is available this week in Catherine Pooler's Online Store. Then again when the store opens permanently in August. the store contains all of the stamps dies and stencils from the first three SOA collections and three brand new products by Catherine Pooler Designs, two new stamp sets and one set of ampersand dies. I have ordered them all and they will arrive this week!! Thanks for stopping by Susan
There’s a new online paper crafting store….and I was one of the first to check it out! Catherine Pooler announced the other day a soft opening of her new online shop – one that will sell older Stamp of Approval Collections (SOA) – and her brand new line of stamps – Catherine Pooler Designs!
The store opens Saturday June 25th at 9 AM EST to StampNation members and the next day to newsletter subscribers. If there’s something you’ve been dying to have, don’t miss out – the soft opening is only 5 days till it’s permanently open in August! I ordered the three new stamps and dies (shown above) and also the new dies to go with Eva's favorite flowers. I was a bit worried about the looming Canada Post strike and my ability to get these products in my hands. I emailed Catherine and she added more shipping options to get our orders to us including Fedex and UPS. Thank you Catherine!!
It's the 17th of the month, and you know what that means. It is time for your reminder to do your monthly self-breast exams and to schedule your yearly mammogram. Michelle from CAS-ual Friday's designed a line of stamps and dies especially for this cause when she was diagnosed with breast cancer. You can read her story here.
My card for today is a bit different. I used the Calling all Sistahs stamp set from Cas-ual Fridays and the Sending love stamp set from Gina K Designs.
Here is the list of Blog participants for today's hop.
