October 17th: Calling All Sistahs!

Welcome to Day 1 of our October release
our Calling All Sistahs blog hop!

1 year ago this month I had my lumpectomy.
This morning at 9 am I will have my mammogram...
1 year cancer free???
It's a BIG day for me and I'm not gonna lie, I'm nervous.
I will update here later in the day with the verdict.

I am cancer FREE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
1 year down, the rest of my life to go :)
Thank you so much for all the support and love I've been receiving today, you all rock!

As you know, I designed my special
Calling All Sistahs collection about this time last year.
So far we've raised over $1300 for

That's money that goes directly to awareness and research programs.
But I know we can raise more!
So this month, the 1 year anniversary of my own breast cancer surgery
and the 4th birthday of my happy little company,
I've designed an addition to the

Introducing...Word Ribbon

This awesome set will be a go-to for encouragement.
It's design will reach past breast cancer and be useful for any type of cancer.
The big word ribbon was designed to fit with our Ruffled Ribbon Fri-Die.
50% of the profits from the set and all the sets in this collection
are donated to

I'm not going to make you wait to get this, it's available in the store

This brings us to our blog hop!
Early detection saved my life
and the lives of my family and friends and sistahs.
So I'm here with a whole lot of my friends
to remind you to do your self breast exams
and get those mammograms scheduled!

Today's hop is about encouraging someone who is going through this right now.
You'll see lots of super projects and many of them will use our brand new Word Ribbon set.
Be sure to leave some love at all the stops.
There are 2 more stamp sets being released this week,
and 1 lucky random commenter will win the whole release!

CAS-ual Fridays Stamps <<<You are here!
Jeanne Jachna <<<Next Stop!

Have fun.
Be inspired.
Do your self breast exams.
Be safe.
You're my sistahs and YOU matter to me!

I'll be back tomorrow with a stamp set
that you will absolutely flip for!
Can't wait to show you :)

Michelle~ Congratulations on kicking this nasty diseases *SS! I am a three time cancer survivor so I know the joy of getting the news that you are disease free! It seems like I get cancer every 12-15 years and I refuse to let it beat me!
I love this stamp set and wish I could afford to purchase it but the budget doesn't allow for it right now. I hope lots and lots of people buy it and that the money raised will be the amount that funds the CURE to eradicate this disease! Wouldn't that be awesome?
I am off to hop and see what the designers have created with this awesome stamp set!!! Thanks for having me along on this meaningful and inspirational hop!

Great set, inspiring blog hop and thanks for the reminder.

Oh My Goodness! I just finished the hop and I'm so glad I did it. So glad to know about the group too. My sis in law just started her radiation this morning for breast cancer. She went for her annual mammo and they found the tiniest of lumps, she had that removed and it was very well defined and nothing in the lymph nodes at all. She is at stage 0 and we are all confident that she'll be cancer free once she finishes her radiation. As usual she will be taking the inhibitors for 5 yrs too.
Thanks for doing these hops, it's a fabulous idea to remind us all to do our checks.
