Friday, October 26


Welcome back to another exciting week at 
CAS-ual Fridays, the Clean And Simple Challenge!

Last week was jam-packed with excitement as you were introduced to 
We had a week of amazing inspiration from the Girl Fridays using the new stamps 
that ended yesterday with the announcement of the winners of all the sets!
If you missed it, be sure to check it out HERE

Today marks the Grand Opening of the store!
That's right! The stamps are available on our new website NOW!

I can't think of a better way to celebrate than to
offer the first ever CAS-ual Fridays Stamps
gift certificate to this week's challenge winner!!

CFC76: Create a Clean And Simple project using Kraft
It can be a card, tag, layout, etc., as long as it's CAS

***Important Fact***
CAS-ual Fridays will remain open to all players to use ANY products you have in your stash.
Of course, we would be thrilled to see your CAS-ual Fridays Stamps creations in the gallery,
and the Girl Fridays will be featuring them often in the inspiration parade,
but the challenge will remain an open source of inspiration to ignite your creative mojo.
You are welcome to use ANY products to create your challenge projects.

This is a very bittersweet week for me.
I've known for months this was coming...
the Grand Opening of my store
a farewell post.

The Girl Fridays are all very special to me.
They are all crazy talented, and make my jaw drop on a regular basis,
 but what you really need to know is that they are all genuinely nice people.
They are truly some of my favorite people!
So, saying farewell to a few of them this week is definitely not on my list of things that make me happy.
While I'm sad to see them go,
they all have amazing adventures in front of them, and that DOES make me happy :)

Gorgeous submissions by the DTs. I just uploaded my card. Love Kraft.

WTF, I missed it and I had a card in mind, too. I think you should have extended this week by a day because of Halloween. You can make eight-day weeks, right, Michele?

Still, lots of wonderful inspiration from the DTs and the "contestants" for me to pin or bookmark, so it's all good!
