CAS-ual Friday


Hi!
I'm on the road for work currently, but I wanted to be sure you knew about this week's CAS-ual Friday challenge
It's all about the summer sweets!
Last week was a first for me, making a shaped card, but so many of you players really inspired me to branch out and try it more often. FUN. 
Just like our newest challenge...


 Popsicles, ice cream cones, candy, cakes, you name it! 
Put it on your CAS project and link it up for a chance to win BIG!
And I do mean BIG!
Our sponsor this week is PSA Essentials. Just wait until you see what they are offering to the TGIF winner... you won't believe it! 



On to my card:
I fondly remember eating lots of toothpick popsicles when I was a kid. 
Did you eat those too?
                                                                                   Source: mangotomato.com via Dana on Pinterest

Plain old juice or perhaps kool-aid poured into ice cube trays and then frozen? 
We would shove toothpicks into them once they were slushy to have something to grab onto when frozen solid.
Cheap and delicious...at least to my 8 year old self. *chuckle*


Some of you know that orange is my all time favorite color. My living room walls used to be orange, but now they are a pale sea blue and I have orange accents all over with our white furniture. 
How about some inspiration from Pinterest?
See where I'm going with this?
This card was meant to be. 


Be sure to play along with us this week for the GRAND PRIZE, by linking your CAS Sweets & Treats project up at CAS-ual Fridays!


Thanks for stopping by,
*mwah*
