CAS-ual Friday GD search!

Happy New Year peeps!
I'm wishing for a healthy, happy 2012 for all of you and your loved ones too.

This week's challenge at the CAS-ual Friday blog is a special one. It marks the start of something new that we will be doing all year. The first challenge winner of each month will not only win the CAS-tacular prize, but ALSO win a guest designer position as a temp with the CAS-ual Friday team! 
This week's winner will be guest designing with us in February. 

So...the challenge is to use chipboard.

And our sponsor is Simon Says Stamp!


I used Versamark and inked up a huge BG stamp from Cornish Heritage Farms for my card front. I heat embossed with Grapefruit Zing e.p.  That stuff rocks. See how opaque it is...even on dark grey CS! Then I covered a random chipboard shape with white CS and stamped it with a sentiment from For the Love of Dots by Practicing Creativity. A tiny piece of twine finished it off.

I hope you'll join us this week for the chipboard challenge!
Can't wait to see who our first guest designer of the year will be!

Have a good one,
