August 23

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.

Girl Friday Shona got her ink on with a couple of our floral sets.

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

August 10...again!

Hello again!
So what happens when the boss posts the wrong project for the day?
Hmmm...I guess 50 lashes with a wet noodle for me,
and more eye candy for you!

Girl Friday Jeanne actually created 2 wonderful cards for today
and I'm back to let you see them :)

She inked up that big awesome sentiment in a few gorgeous colors
then stamped it onto one of the Bubble Box die cuts.
The colors play so nicely with her pretty patterned papers!

She inked up the Dream Then Do sentiment the same way
and stamped it onto a Bubble Box die shape again,
but this time she used 2 different sizes and instead of cutting the shapes,
she debossed them onto her panel
to give that awesome layered but not layered look.

Be sure to visit Jeanne's blog to get extra tips
on how she created these beauties :)

Happy Wednesday!

Yesterday was the first day of school for my guys.
Sophomore and Senior.
Ug! Where has the time gone?!

Today I have a card from Girl Friday Jeanne that is totally awesome.
She combined Tin Roof with a die from Smiling Fri-Dies...

I never get tired of seeing Tin Roof embossed in white.
She layered 2 cuts of the Thanks together to give a fun sparkly shadow.

Happy Monday!

How about a project with no stamps?
And almost no ink??
Girl Friday Lisa created a to die for project today.

Here's what she had to say...
Created my own coverplate look with the Lovely Link Fridies and patterned paper. 
The sentiment is from the Love Ya Fri dies, die cut 4 times adding some silver to the bottom section with a marker. Finally I pulled out some die cut trees in my scrap pile from the CASual Trees Fri dies that I had used on this month's Callin' All Sistahs Blog Hop project.

I'll bet she'll figure out something fun to do with all those little heart cut outs at some point :)

We've got a few things on sale this week.
Why not?!
