  156. Happy 5th anniversary CASology! This is the first I'm hearing of you and I hope I hear more of you in the future. Today 5 years is a long time for a craft place to be in business. I hope you have many more years in business. I love balloons and we just recently went to a balloon fest. It was to windy that day so none of the balloons went up and none of them were on the ground either. However, we had been to another balloon fest years ago and the balloons were on the ground and going up. They were so amazing like all the cards I saw on your site. Everyone did a really nice job with their cards.

    ReplyDelete
  157. Wow, these are some amazing prizes! Thanks for putting this together.
