Happy 2nd Birthday CAS-ual Fridays!!!

That's right! We are celebrating CAS-ual Fridays 2nd birthday. This awesome blog has been around for two wonderful years.
 There are so many things that I have to be thankful for this blog. I remember posting my first card to this challenge blog. I had an unused stamped die cut sitting on my table and I needed a thank you card that was mailable. My card came together so easy and then the light bulb went off...I love to create clean and simple cards!!!
The second reason I am thankful for this blog is that Michele offered me my first design team opportunity a year ago. Gosh, have I really been on this awesome team for a whole year? The time has simply flown by, I can hardly believe it.
So this week's challenge celebrates the top 10 challenges of CAS-ual Fridays. The challenge is a Tic-Tac-Toe challenge, which was also one of the top 10 challenges. You can create a clean a simple project by simply using a row for your inspiration.


We have some super exciting prizes for the winners of this 2 week challenge. Ellen Hutson is giving away a $25 gift certificate to this week's winner as well as $15 gift certificates to the 4 VIPs.

And not only that, but CAS-ual Fridays Stamps is giving each of the top 5 contenders a gift stamp set as well. If  you don't participate in this 2 week challenge, you've got to be crazy!

For my card, I chose the diagonal line of Birthday, Bling, & Punches/dies. You can never have enough birthday cards on hand, right? I used the birthday sentiment from Casual Elegance. Then I used my Silhouette to die cut the speech bubbles from the Silhouette store (Design #29232). I used the offset feature and flipped them. I finished it off with some rhinestones and popped up the sentiment bubble with foam adhesive.

So, I hope that you find some time to create more than one project from our Tic-Tac-Toe board. You have until midnight on Wednesday, May 15th to link up and play along. Thanks for stopping by!
