CAS-ual Fridays Challenge CFC13

Well it sounds like many of you found hidden treasures in your stash last week
and we're glad we could encourage you to dust them off and use them!
Oh, have we got a challenge for you this week!
This one will test the very core of your CAS-ness *wink*
CFC13-The Long and Short of it:  Create a 4 x 9 card and 
keep it Clean And Simple!
The idea is to embrace the (white) space.  Its a big canvas & you must resist the urge to fill it.

Please give a warm welcome to our amazing sponsor this week!

Lawn Fawn is a small company from Southern California that specializes in clear stamps that are both fun and lively.  Our stamps have been seen in the pages of
Paper Crafts, CARDS, Take Ten, and Creating Keepsakes magazines
with many more publications to come.
At Lawn Fawn, we love stamps that are truly one of a kind.  All of our stamps feature original designs that have been created just for you; even our fonts have been customized to perfectly coordinate with each set.  And to give you the best stamp experience possible, our stamps are manufactured in the USA with high quality photo-polymer.
Visit us anytime at to browse our latest products, order at our online store, or simply find inspiration!
We hope our stamps make you smile!

Our TGIF winner will receive a terrific prize from Lawn Fawn!

*** A little Housekeeping***
Pleeease be sure you are familiar with our challenge rules.
It has broken our hearts the last couple weeks to eliminate projects from the VIP and TGIF voting process because they didn't have a link back to our challenge.  We love seeing our challenge graphic in your posts but please be sure to either link it or add a separate link that takes your readers directly to CAS-ual Fridays.

And now, on with our Long & Short inspiration parade!
Lawn Fawn generously provided our Girl Fridays with sets to create their inspiration projects this week...check out these lovelies!
