CAS-ual Friday!


Oh my goodness!
You challenge players have outdone yourselves! 
We had 242 participants to last week's Clean & Simple BLING challenge at CAS-ual Fridays!
What a turnout. *whew*
I'm still commenting on your work even now!

But today is the beginning of a new challenge...


Yes, it's that time of year, so lets see those graduation cards!
 Pre-school right on through to Graduate school.
 We want to see what you have up your sleeves (or should that be cap and gown?) *chuckle*

The sponsor this week is Market Street Stamps, and they have some really fun sets. 

This card is going out to my bestie, who just graduated with her 
Master of Public Administration from Binghamton University! 
Congrats Mary, I'm so proud of you!

So, celebrate the accomplishments of those you know and love
 by linking your clean and simple graduation card to the CAS-ual Fridays challenge!

Thanks for stopping by friends, it's FRIDAY!
Hat and sentiment by PTI, nestie frame by WaltzingMouse. Twine from the Twinery, and CB folder.
