CAS 13

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 May Reminder

It's been a long month. I've spent a lot of time in the hospital in the past couple of weeks, not for me but for my dad. Some bizarre condition that the doctors can't quite determine what it is but are instead focused on getting it stopped so he can go home. 4 weeks. That's a really long time to be in the hospital and just want to go home. 
The days are long, the nights are not restful and the waiting...the waiting is the worst.
I have to admit I almost forgot to write this post. The days are just passing and I kind of lost track of where I was in the month. That is so easy to do, to lose track of time, forget where you are and what you need to do.
We need to do our self checks Sistahs!! I urge you to remind all the wonderful women in your life to do it to. 
And I'm going to issue a little challenge...if you know of someone who is in the hospital, send them a card or if it's close enough to you, stop by for a visit. In the hospital the patients ache for normalcy and I can tell you first hand the wifi sucks and so does the cable tv, it gets really boring really fast.
Please brighten someone's day with the gift of a card or your time. 
It matters.

My wonderful Encouragement Squad is here today with lots of wonderful cards to inspire you to do your self checks! Let's take a look at all the pretties :)

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