CAS-ual Fridays Birthday Blog Hop

CASual Fridays birthday

If you arrived here from my dear friend, Heather North’s blog, welcome!  We are celebrating CAS-ual Fridays 3rd birthday with a blog hop!  You know what comes with blog hops, right?

Awesome eye candy and awesome prizes!  There are TWO MISTIs up for grabs along with a $75 Gift Certificate to CAS-ual Fridays!  WOOOT!  AND there’s a little sale going on over there for you all, too!

I made a quick and fun birthday card to celebrate the occasion.  The card is pretty self explanatory…including those fun die cut flowers.

CAS-ual Fridays Birthday 2 I cut out the 4 Petal Set Fri-dies and colored each flower with a light color Zig Clean Color Marker, then colored around the edges with a darker color, then added a bit of water to each petal and waited while the color blended and dried.

The circle die from Fun-fettie Fri-dies was the perfect finishing touch to these cutie flowers!

CAS-ual Fridays Birthday Years ago I was a big fan of the CAS-ual Fridays, the challenge blog.  And I very clearly remember the day that Michele announced she was starting her own stamp line.  I was SO excited for this #ladyboss and admired her business endeavor!  Little did I know that just a couple years later, Michele and I would be very close friends and she would be very instrumental with me starting my own little thing…(you know…Stamp of Approval!!! ;)

Michele has played a big role in bringing this product to market, from product design and creation to just cheering me on every day….on the good days AND the hard days.

I am honored to be a part of this blog hop to celebrate this amazing company and what makes it even more awesome is the inspiring woman behind it.  I’m blessed to be a part of it.

Back to the hop:

I’m the last stop on the hop, so if you joined here or in the  middle, head back over to CAS-ual Fridays!

CAS-ual Fridays Goodies:


Be sure to comment on the blogs in the hop for your chance to win (more info on the CFS blog) – and no, you aren’t crazy…there is no comment section on my blog right now.  I was getting a ton of crazy spammy comments, so we had to turn the comment function off for now.

Hopefully it will be back up later today.  :)

Thanks for visiting me today!  I’ll see you soon!
