CAS 12

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!!!

Are you ready to see where this month's inspiration will take you?

Calling All Sistahs April Reminder

It's that time of the month again! If you haven't checked yourself yet in April, this is your day to get on track!
So funny fact about me, I never turned 40! 
Ok, I mean chronologically I did, but I never paid attention to that and instead I turned 39 about 10 times! In fact, I started referring to my little brother (he's technically 3 years younger than me) as my older brother! I bring this up now, because I will be celebrating my 50th birthday this weekend. 
It's a funny thing...I didn't want to be older until I thought it might not be my privilege. 
I can say with absolute conviction that it is my privilege to turn 50 on the 23rd...but I'm going to start partying on Thursday night *wink*
I've talked before about perspective and it reigns supreme in this case. Getting older is a privilege, not a curse.
I am so glad I was able to catch that touch of cancer I had and delete it before it deleted me.
Wouldn't you appreciate that opportunity?
Do you think your friends, co-workers and family might appreciate it too?
Please remind all your Sistahs that early detection matters and it starts with doing their monthly self breast exams. It's simple. It doesn't hurt. It doesn't take more that a couple minutes. It can save your life.
I'm joined today by my awesome encouragement squad with cards to inspire you. 
I hope you'll CASE some of them to encourage your Sistahs to get checked, get their mammograms or get rid of that terrorist and fight the fight.

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