Bringin' the Bling at CAS-ual Fridays!


It's time for another challenge!
Any ideas from this little snippet what it might be?
I'll give you a hint...it's CAS....  LOL


It's time to add something shiny to your CAS design!


What's not to love about CAS?  
I mean, I am loving the fact that once I come up with a design
concept, I can usually get it done within 30 minutes!
Yes, I love to layer...and layer...and layer...
But if you'll notice, there are a few layers to this card
and it's STILL Clean & Simple.

I hope you will consider joining us in 
the 'Break Room' over at CAS-ual Fridays.
There's a whole bunch of inspiration from 
our 'Girl Fridays' and a each week, there is a 
gallery of beautiful creations from our players.

If you play, you just might win the fabby prize from


so I'll see you there!!!
