Meet the New Challenge Director!

Welcome back to The CAS-ual Fridays Challenge!

Wow! Time really does fly when you're getting inky!
Can you believe we've been inspiring you for 5 years?!

5 years of amazing inspiration 
from some of the best designers on the planet!
I'm not just talking about ALL of the Girl Fridays I've had the pleasure of working with, 
I'm talking about all of YOU...the players.
You are what has made this challenge great, 
You are the reason we keep doing it.
And in our 5th year we are going to do it even better!

Last year I was running 2 challenges: 
1 for Clean And Simple designers and 1 for Utterly Adorable Layers designers.
Unfortunately, CAS designs were showing up at the UAL challenge and UAL designs were showing up at the CAS challenge which sort of defeated the purpose of having 2 challenges, and it got a little frustrating and confusing for everyone.
So, this year, we're going back to just one challenge 
it will be open to ALL designers in any genre!
If you're CAS, Utterly Adorable Layers, mixed media or anything in between, 
YOU can play!

I'm sooo excited about this new chapter for CAS-ual Fridays Challenge
but I can't do it by myself.
I need someone who is inspiring, kind, organized and fun...
Lucky for me, I found the perfect person for the job!
I'm thrilled to announce my new Challenge Director...

She is not only a fantastic designer, but super organized and lots of fun too!
You're going to love her here!!
She just happens to live about an hour away, so we met for lunch one day and remodeled the challenge over chips and guacamole :)
We're making it more inclusive, more fun and we've got a team of designers who can't wait to inspire you!
Alanna has come up with some awesome challenge themes that you will super love!
Together, we chose 6 super awesome designers to be Girl Fridays for the challenge!!
Alanna will begin introducing them to you starting Tuesday!

Mark your calendars to come play with us on May 6th!
Until then, please click the How To Play tab at the top of the blog to see our new rules.

While I would personally LOVE to see your CAS-ual Fridays Stamps creations in the players gallery,
You do NOT have to use CAS-ual Fridays Stamps in order to play or win!
However, if you do win with a project that uses CFS, we'll double the prize!

In honor or our 5th birthday
I've got a special savings code for you that is valid through the end of May!

We'll see you Tuesday!
