MY BIG SECRET REVEALED–and a Personal Invitation for YOU!!




I can finally share the secret that has been KILLING me to keep inside!  I am thrilled out of my mind to tell you that I am one of the new members of the CAS-ual Fridays Challenge Design Team!!!  Can you believe it?!  Seriously, I just keep pinching myself at the thought of working alongside my incredibly talented designer teammates.  I mean, these women are GENIUSES and ROCK STARS!!  And boy do we have some super fun clean and simple (CAS) challenges in store for you all, beginning next Friday, May 6th.




Here’s a list of the entire DT:

Julie Ranae – designer/coordinator

Michele Gross – designer/coordinator

Karen Baker

Virginia Lu

Laurie Willison

Kryssi Ng

Jacyln Miller

Dana Seymour

Laura Davis

Julie Day

Karolyn Loncon (REALLY?!)


Brilliant, right?!!  So here’s what I’d love for you to do – RUN, don’t walk, to “follow” and/or sign up for an email subscription to the CAS-ual Fridays Challenge Blog found HERE.  Oh, and you can “LIKE” us on Facebook HERE, too!  LOL  That way you won’t miss out on any of the upcoming news and/or challenges, as well as the delicious and inspirational samples that the DT will be providing for you.  I know there are some fabulous prizes in store (thank you CAS-ual Fridays Challenge sponsors!!), as well, so I know you don’t want to miss out on what I KNOW will be THE place to be every Friday!!


Lets Hang Out Spill the Beans_edited-1

I have a little card that I made up, just for you all – consider it your personal invitation to COME AND HANG OUT WITH US next Friday for our very first CAS-ual Fridays Challenge.  Check out that swingin’ squirrel – isn’t he just the cutest thing EVER?!!  LOL  He’s just one of the amazingly fun images from the new Paper Smooches stamp set called Hang Ups (available May 1st).


Okay, kids, that’s it for me tonight.  I’ll be back soon, although if I’m a bit scarce over the next few days it’s because we’re having a boat load of people over for dinner on Saturday, and we head back to “sunny” Washington on Monday.  I’ll pop in when I can, but at the very latest next Friday with some inspiration for the first CAS-ual Fridays Challenge.  Hope you’ll join us!!  Thanks so much for stopping by today!!
