CAS-ual Fridays- cfc1

Hello there. I hope you all are doing well. I haven't posted in while simply because life started happening. There was some good to come out of it though. My hubby is home after a year long deployment!
But that also means time to move again.

Enough about me, onto it then.

I'm so excited for this challenge, it seems as though I've been waiting forever. I'm glad to be able to participate in this first challenge with CAS-ual Fridays. This weeks challenge is all about the text. Simply submit a project using text.

I got right to it. Here's what I came up with. I'm not great at CAS, but I consider myself quite the wordsmith so this challenge really speaks to me.

I hope you're inspired to try this on for size, if not, just simply do something you love.

Till next time,

Feel free to sign up to follow me! I appreciate the comments and the company. You can also find me at

  1. Your card is scrumptious! I love the opposite colored polka dotted leaves and your texted leaves in the middle is perfection. Awesome CAS card and we're delighted to have you play with us at CAS-ual Fridays!

  2. I love the simplicity of this card and the different textures on the leaves!

  3. SA-weet!! The leaf images are awesome, especially the texted one. Great color combo too :) Thanks for playing with us this week at CAS-ual Fridays!

  4. Love your take on the CAS card! The color combo and images are so lovely together! Thanks so much for playing with us at CAS-ual Fridays!! Hope to see your fab work again! PS: Happy that your DH is home safe! God bless America!

  5. @ Virginia, thanks for the well wishes for the DH. And to all of you ladies that have stopped by from the CAS-usal Fridays crew, I appreciate you and look forward to the coming challenges...

  6. We feel like we've been waiting forever, too!! LOL And what do you mean you don't consider yourself a CAS designer?!! This project says otherwise!! You've nailed this challenge and the CAS vision, and I adore what you did with this!! Thanks so much for playing with us in the very first CAS-ual Fridays Challenge!! Looking forward to seeing more of your beautiful work!!

  7. This is wonderful! I love the way you've used three different patterns on your leaves rather than all the same.

  8. What a great card!
    Thanks for playing at CAS!

  9. Oh, I love that leaf image stamped in all different patterns. It just works! So glad you joined us for the first ever CAS-ual Fridays challenge.

  10. Really great to have you with us in the Break Room at CAS-ual Fridays! I love your design work and the way you incorporated the text!

  11. Hi Dara, love your card - it is truly CAS and so beautiful!!
    Have a great week!

  12. Dara, I'm so happy for you that hubby is home and safe...great news indeed! And you ARE good at CAS cards, clearly! This design is fabulous and the texty leaf rocks. I'm delighted that you joined us at CAS-ual Fridays and hope you will return.
