Sunday, May 1


Well, you've met everyone else,
so I guess its finally time to introduce...myself!

Michele Gross

I am a stamper! 
Put a stamp in my hand, show me the ink, and I'm a happy girl!
I'm married to my best friend, and mom to 2 cool little skater dudes (9 & 11).
I'm happy, cheerful and a little bit zany at times.
Creating in my studio is my happy time and my mojo is 
completely powered by sunshine and M & M's.
I own 2 blogs: Studio MSG and CAS-ual Fridays.
The challenge world has provided endless inspiration for me 
and encouraged me to push my boundaries.  
Designing for DeNami Design and The Play Date Cafe, 
  and having my work published in Paper Crafts 
have been some of the biggest highlights of my paper crafting career.
But meeting so many wonderful friends in 'blogland'
has been the greatest reward of my blogging experience.

I'm jazzed, elated & blissfully delighted to bring this exciting CAS challenge to you each week!
I hope you're ready for 
fabulous sponsors, fantastic guests and of course inspiring challenge themes!
I can't wait to get this party started!!

I have always loved CAS design!
Here are a couple of my recent favorites...

You've now met the entire team!
We are ecstatic to have our Girl Fridays designing with us and 
can't wait to see the fabulous inspiration they'll bring each week!

Now, we can't wait to meet YOU!
We know you've got some fabulous creativity up your sleeve and we
are so excited to see your designs in our players gallery each week, 
and get to know you as we visit your blogs!

Please join our Fan Club on the sidebar
You can also sign up to have the CAS-ual Fridays challenges 
delivered to your email inbox each week.
We'll be back tomorrow with some important CAS-ual Fridays challenge information!
