Welcome back to CAS-ual Fridays, The Clean And Simple Challenge!
Thank you from the bottom of my heart to all who participated in last week's special Operation Julie's Smile challenge.  We had so many of you trying CAS for the very first time simply because you wanted to support Julie.  It was amazing to see the outpouring of love for one of our fellow stampers, and I can't tell you how many times I got teary eyed reading your sweet comments and blog posts. Julie is still making her way through the hop, enjoying every post and feeling very loved.  This is truly an amazing crafty community and we are so blessed and proud to be part of it!  

In the spirit of Halloween, we've got a tricky challenge for you this week.

CFC24:  Create a Clean And Simple Halloween project with NO orange.  Not even a tiny spot!

Please say hello to our fantastic sponsor!
This week's TGIF Club winner will receive a $15 gift certificate to

Lori McCroskey started Clear Dollar Stamps in the corner of her basement in October of 2004.  Originally, all Clear Dollar Stamps were designed by Lori.  As time went on, Clear Dollar Stamps attracted the talents of Laurie Wilson, Vicki Conquest, Kim Teasdale, and Shawne Arnold.  Lori is constantly watching for new talent to add to the variety of styles Clear Dollar Stamps carries.

Clear Dollar Stamps does not have expensive or fancy packaging in an effort to keep prices low and to be as green as possible.  We want EVERY stay at home mom to be able to afford stamps if she wants them!  We want to be a one stop shop!  Clear Dollar Stamps carries a variety of products including:  Spellbinder's dies, Cuttlebug embossing folders, Flower Soft, Zutter Bind-It-All products, Basic Grey, Eyelet Outlet embellishments, Versamark, Ancient Page ink pads and refills, and much, much more!

Clear Dollar Stamps introduces NEW PRODUCT EVERY MONTH! Check back on the 1st of every month to see what is new!

And now its time for our inspiration parade!
