It’s Friday – must be time for another fabulous CAS-ual Fridays Challenge!!  Can I get a WOOHOO!!  Your challenge for this week:  Create a CLEAN & SIMPLE project and use a PATTERN, an IMAGE, and a SENTIMENT – ONE, TWO THREE!!

Our sponsor this week is the uber fabulous Clear & Simple Stamps!!  Clear & Simple Stamps has an amazing selection of clear stamps, dies, the most delicious ribbon selection, cardstock, buttons, and ink – pretty much a one stop shop!!  You so should check them out!!  The kind folks at Clear & Simple Stamps sent a fantastic selection of stamps to the Girl Fridays to play with, so I can tell you first hand – their products ROCK!!  They’ve also provided a wonderful prize to this week’s TGIF Club Winner, but you’ll have to click on over to the CAS-ual Fridays Challenge Blog to find out what it is!  Thank you, Clear & Simple Stamps!


CFC44 - Happy Easter 2

I got to work with three different ADORABLE stamp sets from their March/April release:  Gingham Background, Cart Pals: Occasions, and Cart Parts.  Seriously, I had a blast with all of these goodies!


I so hope you’ll play along with us this week.  If you’re looking for some additional inspiration, you should totally stop in at the CAS-ual Fridays Challenge blog and check out all the GORJ eye candy from the other Girl Fridays!


I also wanted to let you know that my grandson, Brenner Joseph, was born on Sunday, March 11th, just 15 minutes before my plane landed in Seattle.  By the time I got my luggage and arrived at the hospital, he was all dolled up and ready for grandma to hold and snuggle with him!!  Oh my goodness, he is a sweetie and the absolute spitting image of his big brother, Brecken.  They’re both Gramma’s little angels!!


That’s it for me today, kids!  Thanks so much for stopping by – you have no idea how much I appreciate the time you take to drop by and leave me some love!!  Have a great weekend!
