Have you heard the latest?

I've been eagerly anticipating the first CAS-ual Friday challenge.  They have put together a fantastic design team with quite a few designers whose blogs I visit regularly.  (Somehow it makes it more fun when I feel like I know some of them).  The first challenge is to use text in your design.  
I pulled out my trusty Hero Arts phone stamp, used Lawn Fawn alphabet stamps to create a texty background as well as my sentiment and voila!  A fun card for a girlfriend.  :)   
 If you haven't already then definitely check out the CAS-ual Friday site.  Between the DT designs and the 83 entries there a whole lot of fantastic cards to look at!

LOVE it!!! I am totally cracking up because I was thinking about posting an almost identical card I made for the same challenge (even using the same LF stamps!). Yours is *much* better, though ;) Love that wavy sentiment. Your cards rock, Jen!!
