Friday, September 7


Welcome back to CAS-ual Fridays, the Clean And Simple Challenge.
It's the first Friday of the month which means it's time to search for a new guest designer!
We've got a really fun challenge for you so let's get to it...

CFC69: Create a CAS project using embossing.  
Dry, heat or a combination of the two, it's completely up to you!

This week's winner will join us as our honored guest next month and
win a $25 gift certificate from our awesome sponsor

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

I live in rural Canada with my wonderful husband and four children. Art and creative hobbies have always been interesting to me. I found painting and drawing almost impossible to maintain after the children were born and started scrapbooking for a while. From there it's a slippery slope getting into card making ... :0) What a fun way to create projects that are manageable and that you can finish in a reasonable amount of time! I've experimented with a number of styles but always come back to CAS. There is something so appealing to me about seeing the bare elements of design.
I've had projects published in PaperCrafts magazines and really consider it an honour to be guest designing for CAS-ual Fridays today. With the theme being embossing and Canadian Thanksgiving just a month away, I thought something in nice fall, pumpkiny colours with touches of gold would be perfect!
