Ready for a new cue word?  This word may well make you feel like a smarty pants.  So many different directions you could go with this one and remember, thinking outside the box is allowed!

Concord & 9th is returning as a wonderful sponsor this week!  Right now, they are offering some great products (see below) as a bundle at a discounted price until November 30!  On top of that, they are donating 25% of all proceeds from this bundle to charity!


This week's winner will receive the Pop Art Pineapple stamp set as their prize!
