Saturday Shout Out

Hello everyone! Yay for the weekend!   Hopefully each of you can spend some doing the crafting things you enjoy! First up we have a fabulous card from June to remind us of the current challenge going on now- to use fall colors and/or a Halloween theme!

Stop by June's blog to see this card and while there check out her Urge to Purge posts! You may just be inspired to do some fall cleaning in your craft space!

he challenge last week certainly scared most of you away!  But, for the three brave entries... well done!  And, each entry was certainly worthy of the Top 3 badge regardless of the number of entries, so feel free to snag it for your blog from our sidebar!

Sneaky Peaky alert- Bugaboo Stamps has a cute freebie right now that might come in handy next week here at Shopping Our Stash....just saying...:)
