Bon Voyage with CAS-ual Fridays



Happy Friday !  WooHoo !

Even though I work from home, I still feel that sense of
'TGIF' because well . . . we all do, don't we ? !

I am coming to you tonight representing


They are sponsoring this week's brand new challenge over at


The theme is 'On the Sea' and I am loving it because
I have been playing with one of Pink Paislee's older
collections 'Nantucket', all week long !


I embossed my Gina K Designs cardstock using this great
diamond pattern from LifeStyle Crafts.  I love how it matches the
background panel from PP.  The small dies cuts were just perfect.

For me, nothing says 'On the Sea' like a beautiful old ship.


I hope you'll be able to play along this week with the
talented designers over at CAS-ual Fridays because
StopandScrap.com is providing a
terrific discount to everyone who does !
You will find the
discount code 
over at the challenge along with a
whole lotta inspiration !

Thanks for stopping by today . . . I'd love to know you came by,
so please say hello  : )
