CAS 09

Are you ready for a new year of encouraging challenges?  Before we get to our first one of 2018 and introduce our new Girl Friday on the Encouragement Squad, we must say farewell to a few of our talented teammates that are leaving us.  Gwendolyn Goh, Melissa Miller and Rahmat Nisa we thank you for serving on our 2017 team and we hope you will come back and play in the challenge often!  Mary Moisan is still a Girl Friday, she has just switched teams.  You can now find her over the CAS-ual Fridays Challenge blog.  :)  We hope she will come play with us too when she can!

Those of you with a keen eye may have noticed our new member that joined us in yesterday's reminder post.  If not you can see it here.  It is my pleasure to introduce to you our brand new Encouragement Squad talented, beautiful and inspiring member, Sandie Munro.  You may have seen her fabulous creations her in our challenges.  She is a frequent flyer to the Calling All Sistahs encouragement challenge and we are thrilled that she said yes to joining our monthly challenges and reminder posts!  You can check out more of Sandie's creations on  her blog London Days.

And, returning for a new term is our incredibly talented and devoted design team Ceal, Larissa, Lori, Marci, Penny, Susan and me, Heather.  Feel free to check out our blogs below and leave these creative women some love. 

Now on to the challenge you came here for....

Everyone could use a little encouragement from time to time.  Wouldn't it be nice to have a stash of cards you could send to a friend or loved one who could use a bright spot in their day?  Our challenge is here to help you with that.  On the 18th of each month we will start a new challenge with a new inspiration photo.

The rules are simple:
1. Make an encouragement card inspired by the photo or colors or both.
2. Link up here by 12am EST on the 13th
3. Share with your friends and followers so we can get the word out about our challenge.

One person will win a $25 gift code to use on anything in the CAS-ual Fridays Stamps store.  All products are welcome, but if you use CAS-ual Fridays stamps or dies on your card, Michele will DOUBLE your prize!!!

Are you ready to see where this month's inspiration will take you?
