Week 100: CELEBRATE

So who guessed today's cue word first?!  After looking over all the comments, we believe Lindsey clearly stated the correct answer first!  We also think those of you who offered guesses sure had some great suggestions and we may just be using some of them in the future, so stay tuned!


It's truly a time to celebrate here at CASology!  This week, we're celebrating not only 100 challenges, but all the wonderful friendships we've found during the last 99!  We'd love to hear your suggestions for future cue words and, if we select one you suggest, you'll get to be a guest designer for us for the challenge that uses your cue word!  So start brainstorming and let us know (by commenting below) what you think would be a great cue word for a future challenge here at CASology!

We have a brand new sponsor joining us this week as we celebrate good times!

Endless Creations, LLC & Everyday Cards is a small artistic rubber stamp manufacture company.  We have been in business for approximately 15 years!  Our daughter, Karissa, owns Endless Creations, LLC and my husband Kevin and I own Everyday Cards.  Karissa has a B.S. degree in Graphic Design and she draws the majority of our stamps.  She has been doodling and drawing since age 12 and she still doodles and draws!  We have a very simple line that is good for cards that we need everyday!  Hence the name of our company!   Kevin and I do all the manufacturing and we attend retail rubber stamp and scrapbooking shows where I teach and we sell our stamps.  We try to design and make stamps that are useful on cards often sent.  So you will find lots of birthday, sympathy, thinking of you, and Christmas stamps.  We have a high quality rubber with a deep etch for good impressions.  We hope you enjoy and use our stamps!  Our goal is not to have stamps just sitting in people's cupboards, but stamps that they get out and use because they need to send cards to their friends and family!  We hope you find this so!

Make sure to ground your images on a clean and simple card.
