Happy Friday!
Welcome back to CAS-ual Fridays, The Clean And Simple Challenge.

Today is special for a couple reasons...
1. It's release day! 4 fabulous new sets hit just hit the store :)
2. We have an exciting challenge that will last for 2 weeks!!
3. It's Friday, and well...Fridays rock!!

Let's talk challenge...
CFC79: Create a CAS winter project featuring blue.
You have 2 weeks to play and you can enter as many times as you'd like :)
Please remember our rules: keep it CAS, make it new, and no more than 4 total challenges :)

Why 2 weeks you ask?
Next week is Thanksgiving here in the US, and we're taking a little break to gorge ourselves in pumpkin pie, and spend a little happy time with our families. The good news is the challenge will remain open so you can play to your heart's content :)

The challenge winner will receive a gift certificate to 

We do have one bit of bittersweet news...
This week we say farewell to Girl Friday Suzanne :(
I'm sad for us because she is such a fantastic designer, and seriously one of the sweetest people ever!
What I'm not sad about is that she has been elected to a very prestigious steering committee in her real life job.  It's really spectacular news and her life is swirling with possibilities right now.
So while we will miss her, we wish her the absolute best as she explores all that is in front of her :)

Let the inspiration parade begin!
