Friday, December 23


Welcome back to CAS-ual Fridays, The Clean And Simple Challenge!

It's the most wonderful time of the year!
Whether you light the Christmas Tree, Menorah or Kinara,
we want you all to have time to celebrate with  family and friends,
but still have a fun place to get creative as we ring in a New Year together.

We have a super special 2 week long challenge with 2 ways to play and
 3 amazing prizes thanks to our sponsor, 
Market Street Stamps!!

First way to play...

CFC33: Create a Clean And Simple project using Kraft and Twine.
Your project does not have to be holiday inspired so feel free to let your mojo go.

Second way to play...
It's release week at Market Street Stamps and they are having a Block Party!
Simply use a Market Street Stamp and then play at
the Block Party on the Market Street Stamps blog.
They even have a free  digi available in the *Market Street Neighborhood* so that everyone can play for multiple chances to win! (It's soooooo cute!!)

2 weeks, 2 fun challenges AND 3 amazing prizes from 
Market Street Stamps!

1.  The T.G.I.F. Club Winner from CAS-ual Fridays will win the entire new release, 
2.  One random winner from the Block Party will win a fun prize 

3.  One outstanding participant will be chosen from the Market Street blog for a Guest Design spot in February!! 

And now its time for our extra special inspiration parade with our special guests...the Market Street Stamps Design Team!


Please visit the Girl Fridays and our friends from the Market Street team and leave them some love for their inspiring examples.
We're looking forward to seeing your creations too!

No way, talk about a huge surprise! Thank you SO much for the early Christmas gift! The inspiration from the DT is fabulous, as always. Hope everyone has a wonderful Christmas!

Congrats everybody!

For my entry this week, it's a tag with a lot of twine at the top and you need a tag to wrap, so I'm good. It just didn't show up in the picture but is clearly seen on my blog.

Merry Christmas everybody!

what a great challenge for me...I don't use Kraft very much. I love how this came out. Thanks for pushing me out of my comfort zone.

Thanks for a fabulous challenge and fabulous inspiration from the DT!
I managed to play both ways for this challenge (yay!) but the inlinkz thingy will only let me link one card as both entries are on the same post - d'oh!
Congrats to the winners!
