CAS-ual Fridays kick-off!

The wait is over!

Welcome to the first CAS-ual Fridays challenge!

Here is the first challenge!


Just create something with text!

My card for the challenge...


Products used: Papertrey Ink Simple Sentiments, Background Basics: Text Style, Silhouette, Fiskars Star Punch

I think the beauty of CAS is that you've got to think outside the box and invent new ways to use a single element without adding layers and layers of stuff. This is a great challenge blog where you will undoubtedly expand your creativity. Even if CAS isn't your expertise, I find that the only way to excel at anything is to practice, practice, practice... or in this case, play along! Besides, it'll be fun!

So go on and hop hop hippity hop on over to see what the rest of the Girl Fridays have created! And don't forget, there will be a prize from this week's sponsor Crop Stop.

Will you be our first challenge winner? ;) See you there!
