CAS 19

Everyone could use a little encouragement from time to time.  
There are a bazillion reasons someone might need a pick me up from going through an illness, relationship woes, working through a big life decision or just feeling a little lonely or unappreciated #teenagerswilldothattoyou
Wouldn't it be nice to have a stash of cards you could send to a friend or loved one who could use a bright spot in their day?  Our challenge is here to help you with that.  
On the 18th of each month we will start a new challenge with a new inspiration photo.

The rules are simple:
1. Using any products from your stash, make an *encouragement card* inspired by the photo or colors or both. It's totally your choice!
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.
*so, just what exactly do we mean by an encouragement card??
Anything that would brighten someone's day from I'm thinking of you, to sending you hugs to consolation and everything in between!*

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

Calling All Sistahs November Reminder


There is always, always, always something to be thankful for. Always.
What are you thankful for?
It might be small, it might be huge, it might be something that most of us take for granted.
The key is recognizing how different things would be without that thing you are thankful for.
For all of us here in the US, Thanksgiving is just days away. 
I, like so many of you, am in the throws of planning my menu, shopping (and trying NOT to forget anything) and getting ready for out of town guests, all while having my master bathroom remodeled. It was supposed to be done Monday. It is sooooo not going to be done Monday and probably not the Monday after Thanksgiving either.
I am thankful I get to stress about these things! 
If I hadn't found that lump in 2015 _______. Feel free to fill in the blank.

I am thankful I found it. I am thankful for the amazing treatment plan that cured me. I am thankful for every single mundane daily detail I get to have that I might have missed out on. 
Be thankful for each day. Be thankful for the people in your life. Be thankful for the opportunities you have, and be thankful for any negative you can turn into a positive. 
Do your self exams. Schedule your mammogram. Tell someone who matters to you to do it to. 
Happy Thanksgiving!












Come back tomorrow to join us for a new Encouragement Challenge!
