Congrats to Sankari! As soon as I saw her carousel card there was no doubt in my mind that her card would be a winner. Thanks for the fabulous chance to play along. I have enjoyed each and every week. I think that everyone who played along over the last 5 weeks has been amazingly talented. I have no doubt that the judges had a difficult job each week. Thank you Laura and Kazan for being such fabulously inspiring people! You have an amazing site here.
