Get 'em Squeezed

Hi everyone!  Welcome to the first Calling All Sistahs blog hop!!  You should have arrived from Lydia's blog, if not, be sure to start at the CAS-ual Fridays Stamps blog so you don't miss a thing!  When I saw the information about the hop, I had to sign up right away, this cause is near and dear to my heart and try to be a part of as many events as possible.  I've had family and friends that have been affected by breast cancer.
For my card I had this rustic wood looking backround sitting on my on my desk and thought it would be perfect for my card!  Initially I was going to make a fancy frilly card but decided to go with this background instead.  I used Weathered Wood, Spun Sugar, Antique Linen and Picked Raspberry Disterss Inks for the background.  I used the Calling All Sistahs stamp set (50% of the profits from the sales of the Calling All Sistahs line goes to National Breast Cancer Foundation, Inc for research and medical help.), heat embossing in white on the background.  The dot for the "i" in girl I added a small squeeze of White Enamel Accents and used my Wink of Stella clear pen on "Girl", you can't see it in the photo but is pretty irl!  I used pink satin ribbon and an enamel dot in the center.

  2. Sorry, Lori! I don't know where I got Claire from. Perhaps because she is next on the hop so I had her name on my brain. Time for me to go to bed, I think. :) Thanks again, Lori, for joining our hop!!!

  11. The background is great - did you stamp it multiple times or did you color it in after stamping once? Inquiring minds ... Thanks for sharing.
