It’s time for the next CAS-ual Fridays Challenge, and since it’s the first Friday of the month, it’s also the time we’re looking for our next Guest Designer – BONUS!!  This week’s challenge is to:  create a CLEAN & SIMPLE design and include something that you can find in the sky.  The possibilities are ENDLESS, right?!

Of course, our fave-a-lave sponsor for this week’s challenge is the uber wonderful Simon Says Stamps.  If you’ve never ordered from Simon Says Stamps, you so need to.  Their customer service is outstanding, and they carry just about every kind of crafty goodie that anyone could ever dream of having – no joke!!  Simon Says Stamps has provided a wonderful prize for this week’s TGIF Winner, but you’ll have to click on through to the CAS-ual Fridays Challenge Blog to see what it is.  Thank you Simon Says Stamps!

CFC64 - Flying By to Say Hi

I had a blast with this challenge (actually, I have a blast with ALL of the CAS-ual Fridays Challenges – lucky me!)  I just HAD to utilize my new Jumbo Cloud Stax Dienamics Dies and trimmed the largest one out a bit to fit it onto an A2 card.  I flipped the same die over and traced around the outside edge onto some Echo Park striped paper, trimmed it out, and adhered it behind the white cloud to give it a bit of a “glow.”  The airplane was stamped on some Echo Park polka dot paper, and then die cut.  The sentiment is stamped and die cut with a double ended banner die.

PRODUCTS USED:

STAMPS:  Fly Away and Little Hot Rod (PTI)
INK: 
Black (Memories/Hero Arts)
PAPER:  Bashful Blue (Stampin’ Up!), Lily White (Bazzill Basics Paper),
Dots & Stripes Homefront (Echo Park)
OTHER:  Shore Baker’s Twine (The Twinery), Double Ended Banner Die & Sunshine Impression Plate (PTI), Jumbo Cloud Stax Dienamics (MFT), Corner Chomper (We R Memory Keepers)

 

Well, kids, that was pretty fun, huh?!  You totally should click on through to the CAS-ual Fridays Challenge Blog to see what the other Gal Fridays have conjured up for your viewing pleasure and inspiration.  You are going to be blown away!  I’ve got a super busy weekend ahead of me, with a Charity Water event tonight, a wedding tomorrow, and another get together on Sunday.  I’m going to need a weekend after my weekend!  LOL  Hope you have a great weekend!  Thanks for stopping by today!
