CASology #29


Welcome to Week 29 of CASology!  Here's the cue word for this week:



We're super excited this week to be sponsored by Fresh Squeezed Stamps!  They're a relatively new company but they're already making a splash in the stamping world with their fun and funky designs.  I have a number of their sets already and now the entire new release is on my wish list!  Check out the store here!  

Fresh Squeezed Stamps just happens to have a fabulous set called Games People Play which is not only perfect for this week's cue word but also for Valentine's Day.  I paper pieced the chess pieces and created my own sentiments with Lawn Fawn alpha stamps.  I couldn't just make one for the guys - I had to make one for the ladies too!  :)

 Your turn now.  Stop by the DT blogs for some brilliant inspiration and then let the games begin!




And this week's guest designer:


Link your creations to the CASology blog and remember that submissions are due by 4pm CST Sunday, 3 February.
