So sorry

Hi everyone!!  Welcome to the January Calling All Sisters Blog Hop!  You should have arrived from Shona's blog, if not, be sure to head to the CAS-ual Friday's blog to start at the beginning, you don't want to miss a thing!   This month we are having a special blog hop!  Pretty Pink Posh has made a special sequin blend exclusively at the Cas-ual Friday's store to help us support Breast Cancer Awareness.  Michele will be donating 50% of the profits, just as she does with the other items in the Calling All Sistahs collection, to  Quantities are limited and once they are gone, they're gone.  
For my card, I had to use the sequins to make a shaker card!  I love shaker cards!!  I used my Ruffled Ribbon die and my sentiment is from my Hope Ribbon stamp set.  I had to add a few random sequins on the outside too, they are so pretty!!  
Don't forget to do your self breast exam and now is a great time to schedule a mammogram if you don't have an appointment for this year!!
Next on the hop is Nora, and below is the list of participants!  Thanks so much for joining us!!

Hi everyone!  Today I have a card for this weeks CAS(E) this Sketch and The Paper Players challenges.  This week on The Paper Players, it is a color challenge, black, white and 1 other color.  I chose yellow!  I made a circle template then spread embossing paste with my stars and dots stencil.  I poured yellow embossing powder and heat set.  My sentiment is heat embossed and I added a couple of clear dots to finish off the card.
I hope you enjoy and thanks so much for stopping by today!

Thoughts and Prayers

Hi everyone!  Today I have a card for this week's Freshly Made Sketches challenge.  Another great sketch this week!  Though I just realized I forgot an element, doh!  But I had fun making the card!  I used one color from my paints and made an ombre effect on watercolor paper..  I decided to die cut in a darker color, the sentiment is stamped in the same color and the panel is on a lighter gray.
I hope you enjoy and thanks so much for stopping by today!

Hi everyone!  Today I have a card for this week's Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge and for the CAS challenge on SCS.  This week on the Simon Says Stamp blog,  theme is "Start Afresh", they want us to use something brand new, out of the package and Misti wants us to use something new on the CAS challenge.  On Friday I received this brand new embossing folder from Taylored Expressions, Conversation Hearts.  My sentiment is also from TE, long retired and I used the edge die from Simon Says.
I hope you enjoy and thanks so much for stopping by today!
