Thankful for CAS

It's Friday, well in my part of the world it is and
that means it's time for another 
Clean and Simple Challenge 

 I have to say that there are many weeks that
I am so thankful for the idea of CAS and this has
been one of those weeks, but for 
very special reasons indeed!

This week's challenge marks a 
brand new term for our designers 
and we are so very happy to have  
each and every one
returning for another six months!
They are one talented group of ladies and it has
been my pleasure & privilege to get to know each one
just a little bit more.

If you've been reading my blog this week, you know
that Paul and I celebrated our 20th Anniversary
on Wednesday and as I type this, I am coming to you
from a surprise getaway that Paul arranged.
So this is yet another reason why I am thankful for
CAS...because I had to pop this card together just
a bit quicker than originally planned!
I send the sentiment to him and want him to know
how very thankful I am for the time we have been
married...20 years goes by in the 'blink of an eye',
so I will keep my eyes wide open and looking forward
to at least the next 20.

 As most of you know, I am also a designer
with the fabulous Lil' Inker Designs
and they are this week's sponsor for the challenge.
I used the very fabulous 'Sentiment Flags' on my
card with MME's 'Stella & Rose' DP.  A tiny bit
of 'Stone' bakers twine from The Twinery
'tops' it all off!

Get on over to CAS-ual Fridays, check out all the
beautiful CAS inspiration from our Girl Fridays
and while you're there, I hope you will congratulate
our designers on another fabulous term!

Sweet card! CAS is all I can seem to do, but it doesn't always mean they're quick for me! ;) The twine at the top of the flagpole is perfect.

This is so sweet, Julie! I love the tri-flag with the bud of twine. I hope you're enjoying your getaway!
