Floral Thanks

Happy Monday 
My card today is for the challenge at CASology of copper

Also for the Concord & 9th challenge of Floral

To create my card I started with a top folding white card base and a white panel cut down with a stitched die. My original MISTI, The Wreath Turnabout and some Altenew inks. 
 A made a template from a piece of 6X6 paper and drew an x to mark the center point. Next I lined up the stamp and then picked it up with the door of the MISI. 
On each Turnabout set there is a guide on how to line your stamp up and if you follow this guide you will have a perfect card.
I cut of the "Thank You" in copper foil paper and centered it across the flora image.

CAS13 Inspiration

Happy Friday! 
It's time for a new challenge at Calling All Sistahs.
 Each month we have a new inspiration photo for you to use to create a card to send out to someone who needs it. It doesn't have to be cancer it can be a sickness a loss of a loved one, a loss of a pet or someone who just needs a word of encouragement. The real challenge for most of us including me is will we actually mail it? 
I have started a group on Facebook called Because Kindness to help us mail more cards out to those who need them, the group is closed so only the group members see the addresses. I would love to have more members so if you are on Facebook and this is something you are interested in please request to join through facebook.

oh and there is a prize involved 
a $25 voucher to CAS-ual Fridays Stamps and if you use CAS-ual Fridays products and are the winner it will increase to $50

Here is the inspiration photo

To create my card I started with a white top folding card base, a black panel cut to A2 size and a white panel cut to 3 3/4 X 5 1/2. First I created a blended background on the white panel using Catherine Pooler inks in It's a Boy and Fiesta Blue. I used the original MISTI to stamp the Tin Roof image across the front of the blended panel and then added greeting from the Pretty Posies set to finish the card.

Have fun and remember to mail your cards :)

May Reminder Post

It's the 17 and that means it's time to Call All Sistahs to check your girls!
Mammograms are important but so are self checks and we are reminding you to do that today. I have had several of my friends battle this horrible disease and have lost friends and my mom to breast cancer so please heed our reminder and check yourself.

Cancer can be beaten if caught early so please do self exams and get your mammograms once a year if thats what the doctor suggests. You can also help find a cure by purchasing products from the Calling All Sistahs line where 50% of the profits go towards breast cancer research.

To create my card I started with a white top folding card base and a white panel cut down with a stitched die. Using the MISTI I stamped the background from the set Dream then Do  using Altenew ink and the then used the direct to paper technique and cut out the ribbon using the Ruffled Ribbon Fri-die.  To finish the card I added never give up from the Hope Ribbon set on the ribbon.
