 I'd like to welcome Donna to the host team! I'd also like to welcome a new sponsor for 2016 - CAS-UAL Fridays Stamps! You can find host and sponsor info in the links above. Be sure to follow us on Facebook, we will be having some special giveaways there this year.

Good Morning, Donna Phelan here! 

So HAPPY to be amongst our wonderful Hostesses, haven't they created a wonderful start to the New Year?!


The challenge this week is all about Friendship.  You may make any style card, just make sure you incorporate 'friend' in there!.

This Weeks Sponsor is CAS-ual Fridays Stamps


All the stamps and Fri-Dies are designed by Michele, and are based on her love for Clean And Simple design, hence the CAS in CAS-ual. However, they will delight any stamper's style! Whether you are a CAS enthusiast or a lover of Utterly Adorable Layers, you will have a blast getting inky with them. 

The stamps are made in the USA of the finest clear photopolymer, and the coordinating line of wafer thin dies are also made in the USA.

2 - $15 Gift Certificate each, to the STORE

My Cards Use Stamps & Dies From The Girlfriend Collection


Donna's Blog


I was inspired by that old Girl Scout song, make new friends but keep the old, one is silver and the other is gold.  

Double Stitched Ribbon.
