Friday, November 4


Welcome back to CAS-ual Fridays, The Clean And Simple Challenge!
We can't believe it's been 6 months already!  It seems like it was just last week that we were announcing our first design team, but here we are starting off our second term.
Our first team of designers was nothing short of amazing with their off the hook creativity, and amazing accomplishments in the paper crafting world.
Truly a dream team!
Each of these talented ladies brings so much to our challenge each week, and the thought of saying goodbye to them was almost too much to bear.  So, it is my sincere pleasure to gleefully announce that ALL of our Girl Fridays are staying on for another term!
We are beyond thrilled to spend another 6 months with these wonderful ladies!
We're also over the moon to have so many fabulous players joining in the fun each week.  We want to thank those of you who have played from the beginning and have helped to make CAS-ual Fridays such a fun place to play.
For those of you who are just discovering us...welcome to the party!

CFC27:  Create a Clean And Simple card with a panel or design element that goes Over the Edge of the card front.

Please say hello to our fantastic sponsor!

Lil' Inker Designs with ag designs is the creative venture of two high school friends Laura Pryor, founder and owner of Lil' Inker Designs, and Ariana Grant, professional graphics artist and owner of ag designs. Laura has a creative vision, but Ariana makes these visions come to life! 
They say that necessity is the mother of all invention and that's so true for Lil' Inker Designs as our very first release, Sentiment Flags, was born from the need to have a flag-ended die for sentiments for our own crafty projects! One year later we have a full line of fun and innovative quality products from Pinwheels to Fringe Flowers!  Our stamps and dies are made using only the best quality merchandise this industry has to offer and all of our products are proudly manufactured in the USA!

This week's winner will receive a $25 shopping spree at Lil' Inker Designs!!

And now its time for our inspiration parade!

Wow, I am so honored to be one of the VIP's. I didn't expect to make it with all the stunning entries. Thank you so much for choosing my card.

Love all the creative DT inspiration. Will try to join again this week. This challenge looks like a fun one.

Sweeet! Thank you CAS-ual Fridays for making this early morning (my 3 year old decided it was time to wake up) a little, well, a lot more bearable! Thank you so much!

Love the off the edge look! Thanks for another great challenge -- fabulous samples Ladies!

Marisa said...

Great idea for a challenge! If it's not CAS enough, feel free to delete my entry.

Karen Aicken said...

I don't usually 'do' off the edge, so I appreciate the challenge and the chance to create something out of the box for me.
Wonderful DT samples!!!
Cheers, Karen

I see I'm not the only one who went a little more than CAS ;-) I'll try to tone it down next week.
