Week 160: NUMBER

We promise you don't have to be good at math to play along here at CASology this week!  Although, the number three is a favorite of ours, if you haven't noticed.  What does this cue word bring to mind for you?

STAMPlorations is returning as our wonderful sponsor and this week's winner will receive either a $10 gift certificate to the online store OR 2 ARTplorations stencils of their choice!  Remember, during STAMPloration's sponsorship week, you can use code CASOLOGY for 10% off your online order!  Also, you'll want to take some time this week to join in their current blog hop!

Now let's go ahead and take a look at what the design team & our guest designer created to inspire you!

  1. Once again, I love the wide-ranging inspiration from your word! As for me, I couldn't resist entering because of all the numbers on my card, and it is clean and very, very simple ... BUT, there is not a lot of white space, so feel free to kick me out! Hugs, Darnell
