Friday, April 27


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

It's the last challenge of the month, the last challenge of the term, and sadly we will say farewell to 3 of the original Girl Fridays.  It's a sad day for me as I don't like endings, but every ending brings a new beginning. These 3 ladies have endless possibilities in front of them.
So while it's tough to see them retire, I wish them the very best.
Before you run off to wish them well, let's talk challenge

CFC50: Spring is here so show us your Clean And Simple creations 
with flowers or trees.
Please take a peek at our rules which can be found in the How to Play tab above.

Please say hello to our fantastic sponsor!

SRM Stickers is a leading scrapbooking and card making sticker manufacturer.  Our stickers are crystal clear and melt into your patterned paper or cardstock for a seamless sentiment, embellishment, title, or journaling feature.  We've assembled a dream team of Designers offering amazing samples every weekday at our blog.  SRM Stickers can be purchased through our online retail store.
SRM's products include popular Sticker Sentiments with the recent introduction of "Fancy Sentiments", as well as Quick Cardcollections that make card making a breeze.  SRM also carries calendars and coordinating stickers that allow you to create beautiful handmade calendars, quickly!

A huge THANK YOU to SRM Stickers for providing a fantastic sticker package to the Girl Fridays to create with!  The lucky TGIF winner will receive one of their own to ooh and aah over.

And now its time for our inspiration parade!

Jax is such an amazing designer and a truly dynamic person.  While I will miss having her expressive creations in the parade, I'm sure we will still get to see them regularly in magazines as she is just tearing it up in the publication arenas.
 I fully expect her to be a Go-To Gal in the future :)
Thanks Jax, we'll miss you!
Laura Davis
Her sweet and soft style has added such a graceful charm to the parade each week. While I'll miss having her here at the challenge, I know she has wonderful opportunities on the horizon and I'm thrilled for her.  Thanks Laura, at least we still have Tuesdays :) 

She has a graceful yet sophisticated style, and always has an encouraging word.  I'm so excited about her new stamp line.  She will be doing great things, and I can't wait to see what she has up her sleeve! Who knows, we may be able to lure her back at some point.
Maybe? Possibly?  :)
Thanks for everything Karen, you will be missed!
