CAS-ual Fridays (for the girls)


What a week.
I'm ready for it to end. This rash of bad luck has followed me long enough! *chuckle* 
Did I mention that a yellow jacket stung me twice yesterday in my left index finger and it swelled up like a giant purple log with throbbing pain that is still radiating into my hand and up my arm even now? *sigh*

But my silly problems pale in comparison to dealing with breast cancer, and with October being Breast Cancer awareness month, this week the CAS-ual Friday challenge is FOR THE GIRLS.


Create a clean and simple project with the woman in your life in mind. A mother, daughter, grandmother, sister, niece, aunt, friend, co-worker, wife. 

I went with a straightforward sentiment, but a with a subtle twist on the image.
The lemon slice was made with felt and stitched together by hand.


We are sponsored by Simon Say Stamp again!

XOXO
