    I like this idea. You may not believe it, but I am a minimalist!
    Do you accept enhancement of original art with digital?
    Thanks!

    This is the coolest thing! I'm so excited for you both, Julie and Michele. The blog has a fun, retro look. I have to say, I tried Googling "CAS-ual Friday craft blog" and nothing came up. Don't know how you fix that. ;)

    How fun is this!!!??? I will definitely play... I love CAS, but tend to do non-CAS. This will give me some incentive to try the CAS style more often. Hugs and congrats!!!

    Great challenge idea! I love playing around with CAS. Though it's not my first choice in card design, the busier I've become, the better a simple style of card looks to me!
