CAS-ual Fridays 1st Challenge!!

 ARE...YOU...READY??!! I know this Girl Friday sure is! May 6th has finally arrived and it's time to let the fun begin! For our first challenge at CAS-ual Fridays you get to show us your uber, awesome texting skills (not the cell phone kind hehe). Use stamps, embellishments, patterned paper...ANYTHING as long as you keep it CAS and there's text in it :)

The winner will receive a very cool badge to display proudly on their blog AND a great prize from our sponsor this week, Crop Stop!

And here's my little card for inspiration this week...very simple :)

 I found some text paper and used a chair die to cut out the shape. Then I stamped over top to add some color (the text paper was neutral). I wanted the chair and sentiment to be the center focal point, so I used a blank, neutral card base and let all the chair do the talking :)

You should see what the other Girl Fridays have come up with, TONS of great ideas! Come on over and have a peek. We'd love to have you play along with us at CAS-ual Fridays!
