Friday, November 18


Welcome back to CAS-ual Fridays, The Clean And Simple Challenge!
Thanksgiving is just around the corner and many of our Girl Fridays will be preparing feasts and wanting to spend extra time with their families.  In order to give them a little break but still keep the fun going for our international friends, as well as those of you who have time off from work and feel like getting your CAS on, we are running this challenge for 2 weeks!

You have until November 30th to create with this delightful sketch by our very own Karen Baker.  It's such a fun and versatile sketch, we know you'll have tons of ideas for it.  Have fun with it and enter as many times as you'd like!

CFC29: 2 weeks of CAS Sketch fun!

Please say hello to our fantastic sponsor!
I have always believed there was a need for stamp sets that crafters could use in cards, scrapbook pages and other crafty projects for the boys and men in their life.  I have searched for stamps that could fill that niche but would only find a random stamp set here and there.  I was tired of the same old fishing and sports stamp sets.  I could not rely on the craft market to meet my needs so I went out and started my own stamp company...TradeFish Designs!
Now don't get the wrong idea, you can use the images and sentiments in my stamps for feminine cards or projects too!  I am creating stamps that you can use for anyone...think of them as "unisexy" stamps.  All the designs are a project of my own quirky design style and sense of humor, as well as a reflection of the boys and men I have had the privilege to know and love.  I hope you enjoy TradeFish Designs stamps and create wonderful  projects for the people you care about.

Our TGIF winner will receive 2 fabulous sentiment sets valued at $30!!
But wait! There's more!  TradeFish Designs is planning a huge Black Friday sale and you're are all invited to check out the fabulous savings she'll have for your inky delight!

A bit of sad news...
This week we say farewell to our Kryssi.  We are really going to miss her, and her amazing style, but wish her all the best as she spends some extra time with her sweet little ones.

And now for our inspiration parade featuring mostly TradeFish Designs!
(The postman wasn't kind to all of our Girl Fridays)
