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

We've got a fun challenge for you this week that will be sure to inspire you.
And...things are about to start getting exciting around here!
There will be a very important announcement in a special Thursday post just
minutes after this challenge ends!
Can't handle the suspense?
 I highly recommend you 'like' our Facebook page as
I will probably be dropping hints there about the special announcement throughout the week *wink*
I might continue to drop hints about more exciting things in store for the coming weeks too!

Now on to this week's challenge...

CFC44:  It's as Easy as 1-2-3  Create a Clean And Simple project using 
1. A Pattern
2.  An Image
3.  A Sentiment
Sound easy?  Remember to keep it CAS!

Please say hello to our fantastic sponsor!

Clear and Simple Stamps was created as a collaborative effort by a mother-daughter duo. Both of whom share a love of art, fashion, graphic design, event planning, entertaining and above all else paper crafting! Together Reenee and Nicki have built a company that is steeped in the love of all things creative and enjoy bringing you clear stamps with style. 
Our concept is clear and simple stamping - each set offers you a variety of options to fit your own personal, creative style. We know all too well the desire to find inspiration. Visit with us every day on your iPhone, iPod Touch, or iPad for a daily boost of creativity by using the CSS Daily App {available in iTunes}. The first ever papercrafting app of its kind with over 500 projects in our archives, and a brand new project shared each and every day.

Stay current with all the fun and exciting things that are happening at Clear and Simple Stamps...  

This week's winner will receive...

And now its time for our inspiration parade featuring Cart Pals: Occasions, Cart Parts and Gingham from Clear And Simple Stamps!
