Friday, June 1


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

It's the beginning of the month which means we get to introduce our guest designer, the fabulous Piali Biswas!
Since we now have our facebook team dishing up new daily delights on our facebook page, I thought it would be extra exciting to have our guest designer featured there as well.
It's also time to search for a new guest designer to join us in July so let's talk challenge.

CFC55: Show us your Clean And Simple stylings with bling.  We're looking for gemstones, glitter, anything that will make your projects sparkle.

Our guest search just wouldn't be the same without our amazing sponsor...

In business since 2002, Simon Says Stamp is striving to offer you the best online selection of Rubber Stamp, Altered Art, Scrapbooking, Artist Trading Card, Card Making and Paper Crafting products in the world.  We stock over 100,000 items in our warehouse so that we can offer you quick service and one stop shopping at a great price!

Happy customers are the heart of our business.

We work hard to find and deliver to you the latest in stamping and paper crafting supplies!  Attending classes, workshops, and sales meetings around the world, our goal is to keep our product offerings fresh and current.  Make us your one stop easy shop - and we'll deliver right to your door!  
This week's winner will not only receive a $25 shopping spree at 

 but will also earn a guest spot with the Girl Fridays for the July guest challenge!

This week's inspiration parade is led by our honored guest!

Hello!! I’m Piali, wife, SAHM of two beautiful girls, cardmaker, papercrafter and scrapbooker. I joined the online craft community in June 2009 and enjoying every moment of it. I have been blogging about my creations at I love experimenting with new techniques and styles….. CAS style is my favorite. I have been so fortunate to have my creations published in several Papercrafting magazines and have designed for some wonderful companies. I am beyond excited to be the CAS-ual Fridays GDT for the month of June. A big thanks to Michele and CFC DT for inviting me!!
We're thrilled to have Piali with us and don't forget to look for her on our facebook page too!
