Calling All Sistahs Encouragement January Challenge

Hi There,

I am here with our monthly Calling All Sistahs Encouragement challenge from CAS-ual Fridays. Our little bunch of Sistahs are all about raising awareness for Breast Cancer and would love you to join our monthly challenge.

  On the 18th of each month we will start a new challenge with a new inspiration photo.

We all need a little encouragement now and then. Wouldn't it be great to have a stash of cards to send to a friend when they needed that encouragement from us?

Well that is what this challenge is all about-making those kind of cards for our friends near and far!

Before I go into how you join in this challenge, here is my card:

In this card I used the CAS-ual Fridays stamp and die set Mon Ami.

And the photo and colours that inspired it:

Here is how you play along:

1. Make an encouragement card inspired by the photo or colours or both.
2. Link up here by 12am EST on the 13th
3. Share with your friends and followers so we can get the word out about our challenge.

One person will win a $25 gift code to use on anything in the CAS-ual Fridays Stamps store.  All products are welcome, but if you use CAS-ual Fridays stamps or dies on your card, Michele will DOUBLE your prize!!!

My fellow Sistahs have all made amazing cards-check them out here and then get inky!

I will enter this into:
