Laura's Sketch 45

I hope everyone had a fabulous, relaxing weekend! Yesterday was Super Bowl Sunday, a great day spent with friends and family, eating and watching a little football.
Congratulations to the SAINTS!!!!

This week is going to be a fun yet sobering one, as we say goodbye to three of our design team members, Ashley, Cheryl, and Sankari. Kazan and I were so lucky to have these very beautiful, and talented ladies on our team, thank you!

We want to take a minute and honor and thank our parting designers.

Ashley Cannon Newell is one classy lady. Her poise and confidence emanates throughout out her work and style. It was such a joy to work with you Ashley! Kazan and I look forward to the day when we can meet and talk shop... thats shopping, decorating, and cooking;) *Muah*

Cheryl Nelson is a genuine sweetheart, the kind of lady you feel like you have known your whole life. Her gentle nurturing-big sister like demeanor was so refreshing to work with, along with the amount of talent that just pours out of Cheryl like it's effortless. We ♥ you!

Sankari Wegman is a truly a beautiful person inside and out! Sankari is always bubbly and positive and her work is beyond outstanding, a real talent. Sankari you will go very far in this industry and Kazan and I are so proud we could be a part of it. {{BIG HUGS}}

Sakura of America is this weeks sponsor. Sakura supplies the perfect line of pens to dress up any card, and our design team demonstrates that here with little touches of doodling and coloring this weeks design team cards.







Sponsor of the Week

The winner of Card of the Week will win a variety of really cool pens from Sakura. These pens are fun and easy to work with. Every card maker should own some of these pens! Thank you Sakura of America.

Thank you for the comment, that was so sweet! I am fairly new to card making but have done tons of other crafts like scrapbooking so its not too hard to transition :) I made that card before I realized that my cards were very simple so I have been striving to make more complicated cards ha ha!
