Week 109: JAVA

Time to kick start your brilliant CAS minds this week with a little shot of espresso!  Are you a coffee drinker or do you just like the aroma of the stuff?  Of course, if you're computer savvy, this word may just take you down an entirely different road than the one filled with coffee beans!

We have one of our wonderful sponsors returning this week!  Precious Remembrance is joining us and is giving away this fantastic set to our winner:

Coffee Love Stamp Set 

On top of that, they have a new release about to happen over in the store this week, so you'll want to bop over tomorrow to check it out!  In the meantime, you can follow along on their blog!
