An Exciting CAS Day Indeed!

What an exciting day!

I've got two three fabulous things going on today
so buckle up !  It's going to be fun!

Imagine my surprise when a birthday gift arrived
at my doorstep with five brand new stamp sets
in the package !  They were from my dear friend
Michele.  If you've visited my blog for any length
of time, you will know she was a designer over at
The Play Date Cafe and from there, we worked on
The CAS-ual Fridays Challenge together.

She has now taken the BIG LEAP and started
her own stamp line based on the terrific
CAS concept and I am honored to be a part of it
as a Guest Designer !

This set is called 'Calm & Gentle' and I absolutely love
these trees.
I just got this new 'Cathedral Lace' punch from Martha Stewart
and I thought it made a great fence.
I just 'dressed up' the trees with tiny gems.

CAS-ual Fridays Stamps are the finest quality, photopolymer stamps 
made in the USA. 
There are five sets to the brand new release.  
Each day of the release, you will have a chance 
to win the featured set !  
All you have to do is head to the store blog and leave a comment
on each of the sneak peek posts to have a chance to win.

You can most definitely go back and comment on posts you may have missed,
so that's great news.  You have until 11:59pm EST, Wednesday Oct 24th to
comment for a chance to win. Click HERE to get all the details.
Winners will be announced the following day and the stamps will
be available for purchase on Friday from CAS-ual Fridays !
You can also play along with the CAS-ual Fridays Challenge
to have a chance to win the entire release!

In the meantime, I am also celebrating the
of our 3rd Anniversary Celebration over at

Over $300 in prizes from our sponsors and all
you have to do is play along !  Create something
