Congratulations to

Jackie G

As we spend today to spoil and honor the "Dads" in our lives! I thought this stunning card created by the fabulously talented Jackie G was just perfect for the occasion! Masculine cards might just be the hardest cards to pull off and this one shines. This card is Rustic and rugged but still kept very sweet, the perfect Father's Day card! Thank you Jackie for sharing your talent with us! Please email me your details so I can get your Clearsnap goodies off to you.

Fab 5

Congrats Dora :) Please email us with the subject line: Sakura Random Winner Week 2 and your address so we can get your goodies off to you.

Tomorrow brings a brand new sketch, an awesome sponsor and tons of inspiration from our Design Team! You will have the opportunity to win Card of the Week, or the Sakura of America Random Draw Prize, or don't forget an honorable mention as one of the Fab 5!

See you all tomorrow!

Hugs from Laura, Kazan & your Divine DT!
