Happy Wednesday!

*sung to 12 Days of Christmas*
On the last day of August,
Girl Friday Kelly made for us,
a super cute holiday card that I want to CASE :)

hehehe, but I really do! check this out!!

This spectacular creation uses our brand new Holly Jolly Borders
and Sleigh Bells with Bell Tag Fri-Dies.

I love the pretty foily gold paper she used and I think the bell and sentiment stamped onto that in white looks amazing!

I really really really like this!

Happy Monday!

You know what's fun?
Christmas stamp sets that are so versatile you can use them for everyday cards.

took our brand new Christmas Sparkle set
and paired it with our Thanks set
to create this...
I love the cute color combo and the little
angle she snipped on her sentiment strip.
It's fun, it's sassy and guess what folks,
it's a Christmas set that is so versatile you can use it for everyday cards!

Happy Saturday!

Today we say farewell to another Girl Friday.
*insert sad face*
I have thoroughly enjoyed having Archana on my team.
She has such a lovely style and it's been a lot of fun for me
seeing her creations.

She's got 2 beauties for us today
as her last hurrah.

I just love the little flowers from Friendly Flowers popped onto the Casual Trees die cuts.

I like way she rolled the flower edges up a bit so they have personality :)
Such a pretty Thanks card

Oh gosh, oh golly!
That fun sentiment from Mistletoe & Holly
looks awesome with all those colorful
 Funky Flakes!

These dies are hot, hot, hot!
Funky Flakes keeps selling out, but more are on the way!
Send me a note through my Contact Us on the website
 if you'd like to be notified when they are back in stock.

Please leave a little love for Archana.
We will miss you!!

Happy Thursday!

They say all good things must come to an end,
but I'm not a big fan of endings.
The design term has come to an end for a couple of my designers,
and today we say farewell to Joanna.

This is one of my favorite cards of hers from this last year.
I love how she cut the Linked Fri-Dies in white on white.
Such a cool background idea and it really makes the big
embossed sentiment from Shenanigans look awesome.

I can't believe it's been a whole year already!
Joanna, we'll miss you and your creative talent.
Best of luck to you in your new business and we hope to see you around the crafty blog planet again soon!

Happy Tuesday!

I've got a fabulous card
with a fabulous video
from Girl Friday Julia.

She used Pretty Posies
and an emboss resist technique with watercolor
 to create this stunner.

Gosh it's pretty!
Here is the video so you can see just how she did it.

That awesome sentiment is from Dream Then Do.

Have a fabulous day!

Happy Sunday!

I don't think anyone will argue with me
when I say
Girl Friday Lydia has a truly lovely style.

Just look at what she created for you today using our

I just love how she added color shading to the stamped images
and even some doodles too!
The drawn in lines on the leaves give them a whole different look,
and the doodle lines she drew by the sentiment look awesome!

Totally love this!

Happy Saturday!

I've got eye candy
and prize winners!
Woot Woot!!

Girl Friday Nora got inky with
Mon Ami and Mon Ami Fleur.

I really love how she used the Tag Buddy die cut as her main panel
and dressed it up with those pretty Mon Ami flowers.
The sentiment from Mon Ami looks super hanging off the edge of the tag.

I think the little bit of thread looped behind the flowers
adds a nice textural touch and it looks really pretty!

So I like to give a prize to the one of the blog hop stops too.
Just one more fun reason to join in the fun!
This month's blog stop winner is:

Now for the 3 random comments.

Calling All Sistahs August hop

Welcome Sistahs!

1 year ago today
I did a self breast exam,
and I found a lump that turned out to be breast cancer.
And then I beat it!

August 17th, 2015 changed my life.
It saved my life.
Because on that day, I caught cancer early.

I started Calling All Sistahs
to provide a monthly reminder to all of you
and anyone you share with
to do your self breast exams.
Every. Single. Month.
You matter!

It is my sincere hope that you and your sistahs will find nothing each month.
But if you do, catching it in the early stages can absolutely save your life.
It's important. You matter!

Today I am joined not only by my Girl Friday Ink Squad,
but members of my Girl Friday Challenge Team,
and awesome bloggers from around the world
who've generously provided a space on their blogs today
to remind their sistahs-
the theme of this month's hop.

I would love to have you join us for future hops!
There will be info on how to do that at the end of this post as well as on Heather's blog-the last stop.

Here is the list of amazing sistahs who have fabulous eye candy to share with you today.
Be sure to leave them a little love as you hop through.
I will be giving three $15 gift certificates to
to a few lucky random commenters. 

Casual Fridays Stamps <-----You are here

Please join us on our Calling All Sistahs facebook page for more info on how to join this hop.
You don't have to be an experienced blogger
and it's ok if you've never been part of a hop before.
We make it as easy and friendly as possible.
All you need is a blog and 1 item from our Calling All Sistahs collection.
50% of the profits from your purchase of any Calling All Sistahs collection stamp or die set

I love this! 
It's so soft and pretty!
