Week 46: FURRY

How about a little furry fun this week?  We're guessing this word is going to bring a lot of animals to mind, but we're open to ideas, so let's see where this word takes your creative minds!

To add a little excitement, we have a fantastic sponsor joining us and our challenge winner will receive a $25 gift certificate to their store!! 

Our stamps and dies are whimsical, trendy and fresh.  All of our images and sentiments are hand drawn, making them truly one of a kind.  Our stamp sets complement one another which make them extra versatile. We release new stamp sets and dies on the first day of every month. We proudly use the highest quality photopolymer and steel dies on the market. We pride ourselves in creating unique and timeless stamps that inspire and will never retire. Take your time while visiting our website as we have some wonderful features: http://www.papersmoochesstamps.com/.

Now let's see what our guest designer and the CASology design team have created to inspire you!
