Happy 3rd Birthday CAS-ual Fridays!


Happy 3rd Birthday CAS-ual Fridays!  I've been a fan of CAS-ual Fridays Stamps since the beginning and I'm honored that I get to celebrate with them today!

In honor of their 3rd birthday, CAS-ual Fridays Stamps has a no code sale going on all week long!  So, shop 'til you drop :)

Today I am hopping along with the CASual Fridays team and some of their closest friends in celebration of their third birthday.  You should have arrived from Kelly Griglione's blog.  If not, head on over to the CAS-ual Fridays blog and start from the beginning!


One thing that has always impressed me about CAS-ual Fridays stamps is that they fill in a huge gap in the stamping industry.  Michelle is the mom of two buys, just like me and she's created a line of stamps that are perfect to tween and teen boys!  It's hard to find stamps for that age group, I'm so happy that Michelle designed stamps with that group in mind!

After saying that you may be scratching your head because I didn't make a boy card.  Instead I used these stamps to make a girly card, which I have never done.  My youngest son is going to a birthday party tomorrow for a girl so I thought I'd try it out.  Woot Woot works perfectly for girls too :)  I had to be careful with the sentiment, Ethan said nothing too gushy, so "High 5" it was!  I stamped the sentiment on the adorable Scallop Tag.

Time to start hopping along.  Make sure you comment on all of the blogs along the way.  There are some really awesome prizes along the way...

One lucky commenter will win this...



Two lucky commenters will win this...


Next on the hop is Julia.  Head on over to her blog to see what kind of birthday goodness she's created for you!

Thanks for stopping by and Happy 3rd Birthday CAS-ual Fridays!!!

Heather North said...

That is so true! It's hard to find good stamps for tween to teen boys, but CAS*ual Fridays filled a gap in my collection too. I think it's great that you were able to use this stamp set to make a card for a guy to give a girl who is just a friend. Kind-of perfect, isn't it?

I agree boy stamps were always hard to find when my 4 boys were small. Since they are now all in their 20's I can get along with manly stamps. Love the circles background and it certainly isn't too mushy!! I'll have to keep an eye out now since our first and only Grandchild is a ... Boy!!

Love your background and the black tag really makes the colors pop, and the seqins placement is an awesome detail too! Beautiful card.

Susi said...

I agree with you about the masculine teen/tween category. Hard enough for simple masculine, but throw in the younger age and it's hard to find something appropriate, but your card definitely fits that bill, Maureen! Love the fun circle background!

Maj G said...

What a happy card! Lots of "pop"

Jackie said...

Awesome card! I love the bright colors with the pop of black. That would be a great birthday card for anyone.

Parker said...

I loved your background and sentiments so much I went to look at the Woot Woot set, and found that it was all there and more. Love that set. And the tag is one of the best looking I've seen in a long time. Good to know about the tween/teen boy stuff--I have three grandsons, oldest is 7, and I will be a frequent at Cas ual now.

Maj G said...
