Hello, October! Autumn Stamp Sale @ STAMPlorations

Hello, STAMPfriends! How's October going for you so far? In our neck of the woods the good news is that our temps have cooled down significantly; bad news is that our air quality continues to be terrible because of the smokes coming from the wildfires near us. We live way out in the country and we have not seen the hills or the mountains around us -- it's all gray and haze and smog, and when we step out, you can see ashes suspended in the air and the air has a burnt smell.

Anyway, the STAMPgirls are back from their summer break and our challenges are back to normal! We'd love for you to play in this month's Theme & Photo Prompt, CAS Cards, and Stencil challenges. We have tweaked our guidelines and prizes as well.

Our September posts are open for commenting for one more day so you still have time left to comment for a chance to win spending $$ on our store. We'll be picking TEN (10) winners of $7 prize codes from comments left on ALL posts published in September. So comment on as many September posts as you can by Friday night to increase your odds of getting picked,
