Week 81: And


Tom and Jerry.  Salt and Pepper.  Peanut Butter and Jelly.  Hugs and Kisses.  Some things just go together!  Thank goodness for our little cue word this week!  What is it going to bring to mind for you?

Before we see what the design team and our guest designer created, we need to mention we have one of our wonderful sponsors returning!


Be sure and visit their store and take a look at all they have to offer because this week's prize is the winner's choice of a stamp set (if the winner is a resident of the US, Canada, Finland, UK, Australia, or EU countries) OR a digital paper pack of the winner's choice (for all others)!
