Week 120: SEA

Want to visit the sea with us?  With winter on its way, we want to think warm thoughts and since we've already used java as a cue word, we're going to take a mental vacation instead!  Come join us!

Cindy B Designs (previously known as Cindy Coutts) is back as our sponsor this week!

She has a Christmas class beginning next week (Monday) and everyone is invited to participate ($12.99 for 5 fun-filled days) for prizes and lots of fun!  There will be a daily challenge with prizes, so you'll want to check it out and join in the fun!

She is offering this week's winner 3 Tim Holtz Layering Stencils: Festive, Gothic and Woodgrain, perfect for creating those holiday cards and projects you have on your to do list!
