Happy Birthday CAS-ual Fridays!



Happy Friday to all of you! Today is my first official post as a member of the CAS-ual Fridays Design Team.  There is a big huge celebration over at the blog. It's CAS-ual Fridays first birthday!  So be sure to go over and check it all out!  We'd love for you to play along!
My card today is ultra CAS.  I love the PaperTrey Ink Birthday sentiments and the balloon set is very versatile.  It has extra lines to extend the balloon ties.   I inked my black ink off once each time before stamping them so it looked liked the ties were behind the sentiment. I hope you like it! 

And...to make the celebration even more fun, we have a few changes and fabulous prizes!

First up the changes:
  • Starting this week, we will extend the time to play.  Instead of ending at midnight on Wednesday, we will extend to noon EST on Thursday.
  • Our facebook team will be posting new inspiration on a daily basis to our facebook page.  Feel free to like us on FB if you have not already.

And now the prizes!  We have a fabulous sponsor this week!  A big thanks to Simon Says Stamp for the fabulous prize packages in celebration of our birthday!
  • In addition to the normal $25 prize for the winner (who will also be our guest designer in June), Simon  Says has provided a wonderful stamp set for each of our VIPs....but hold on there is more:
  • A set will be given to a random commenter on the CAS-ual Fridays blog..
  • A set will be given to a random commenter on the CAS-ual Fridays Facebook page.
Over $100 worth of prizes!  Come check out the gorgeous creations from the design team and play along with us too!
