Here is my take:

I’ve had this set for awhile (I’m a sucker for doodle/zentangle images), but hadn’t used it yet. As I was designing this, I had to keep controlling myself to keep it CAS!

A couple notes about the sentiment: (1) The first bit, I cut the stamp apart and curved it before stamping. (2) Regarding the final bit of the sentiment, I wanted it centered in the label punch, but with the flourish on the t, it felt off balance. To fix that, I turned the stamp around and inked just a tiny bit of the end flourish and stamped it at the beginning of the word. Perfect!

I hope you join us at CASology – and, for more inspiration, check out the other design team members:
