Week 38: UP

Things are looking up!  Last week's word was "hope" and this week we're going to keep our chins up and look beyond what's around us!  After seeing the beautifully CAS entries last week, the corners of our mouths are once again pointing upward!  Thanks to all of you for your continued support and effort to play along each week!  We know there are a lot of challenges in the virtual world to choose from and we are truly humbled to see you selecting CASology!

This week, we have another fabulous sponsor to introduce to you...

We're a small company from Southern California that specializes in crafting products that are fun and lively. We began in March 2010 with the release of four stamp sets and are now proud to showcase our entire collection of over 95 sets in our little corner of the web. In 2012, we introduced paper, stickers and twine, and as of 2013, we are happy to feature new dies for some of our most popular stamp sets!
At Lawn Fawn, we love crafting products that are truly one of a kind. All of our stamps and paper feature original designs that have been created just for you; even our fonts have been customized! Our products have been seen in the pages of Paper Crafts, CARDS, Take Ten, and Creating Keepsakes magazines with many more publications to come.
Here at Lawn Fawn you will find crafting products that are cute, whimsical, and even a bit quirky, but one thing they all have in common is the ability to inspire creativity in everyone. Our products can’t wait to jump start your next craft project!
Visit us anytime to browse our latest products or simply find inspiration! And don't forget to check out our Flickr and Facebook pages, follow us on Twitter and read our blog. We love to feature our customers and give away free stuff!
We hope our products make you smile!

Be sure and check out Lawn Fawn's wonderful shop because this week, they are offering the winner a free stamp set of their choice!
