Week 163: MOON

Time to aim for the moon!  Or not.  This week's cue word should be a fun one! 

STAMPlorations is returning as our wonderful sponsor and is offering our winner either a $10 gift certificate to the online store OR 2 ARTploration stencils of their coice!  Once again, all our participants can receive a 10% off discount on any orders placed during this week's challenge using code CASOLOGY!  Have you seen their newest stamps?  Just in case you're a coffee lover, there are two new coffee themed sets you might want to go see!

Also, every Wednesday until October 7, STAMPlorations is doing special stamp release mini hops on their blog & giving away stamps for those who hop along!
