Week 88: LUCKY


It's your lucky day week!  We hope you'll try your luck with the new cue word for your chance to win another fantastic prize from this week's returning sponsor, Stamps and Scrapbooks!

Cathy is back and offering a $25 gift certificate to her online store (U.S. residents only - International residents will be able to take advantage of her Winter Online Paper Crafting Class.)  Luck may be with you this week, but you won't know unless you try your hand at CAS design!

Let's take a look at what the design team and this week's guest designer created for inspiration!
