How the heck is it possible that it’s almost the end of October?!! This month has been like a blur for me, between moving, transitioning from WA to AZ for the winter, and then having our kids visit for 10 days. But life is finally back to normal for me, and I look forward to enjoying the boring routine of my days now that the dust has settled.
It’s time for the next CAS-ual Fridays Challenge, and this week’s challenge is to create a CLEAN & SIMPLE card or tag design and include kraft in some aspect of your design.
This week’s amazeballs sponsor is, of course, CAS-ual Fridays Stamps – because TODAY is the day that the brand spankin’ new CAS-ual Fridays Stamps are available for sale!! That’s right, ladies – the CAS-ual Fridays Stamps store is open for business TODAY! CAS-ual Fridays 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 find out what it is! Thanks, CAS-ual Fridays Stamps!
I had the pleasure of working with another of the CAS-ual Fridays Stamps new releases called Woot! Woot! Don’t you just love that name?! Seriously, Michele has the most clever mind, and so, so witty! In fact, I created this little bit of crafty goodness for Michele and her new venture! I am so happy and thrilled for her, and know that this stamp line is going to be a huge success! I will most certainly be adding the other CAS-ual Fridays Stamp sets to my stash and will be using them as often as I can!
STAMPS: Woot! Woot! (CAS-ual Fridays Stamps)
INK: Orange (A Muse Studio), Black Dye (Memories/Hero Arts)
PAPER: Hawaiian Shores CS (PTI), Orange Fizz CS (French Poptone), Solar White CS and Desert Storm CS (Neenah Classic Crest)

So, this is an extremely sad post for me as this is my last CAS-ual Fridays Challenge. Yes, I’m so sad to say that I’ve decided to step down from the team. I am ever so grateful to Michele for giving me such an amazing opportunity to work beside some of the most incredibly talented designers in our business. I learned so much and am thrilled to be able to say that I can call each and every one of the ladies on this team my friend – even though I’ve never met most of them in real life. I wish Michele all the best with CAS-ual Fridays Stamps – Michele has worked her little booty off to make this company a success, and I know there are great things in her future. I so hope you all will continue to support her and her new company – I know I’ll be buying those new stamps and playing along in many of the upcoming challenges – I hope I win something! *wink*
So that’s it for me today, kids. I have a huge weekend of crafting planned. How about you? Do you have some fun plans in store for your weekend, too? Thanks so much for stopping by today – you all are my world!
