Moving Break!!!

What a crazy week it's been - all good and inspiring - which is a wonderful breeze of fresh air as far as I'm concerned.  If you don't know already, I'm in the process of moving and so happy that it's almost over!  Boxes and packing, moving and throwing out....sheesh!  As we speak, boxes are flying out the door a mile a minute - the finality of it all is this upcoming weekend and I was so happy that I was able to snag some time and get away from the "moving madness"!!!

This week's sketch challenge at the CDAC is being hosted by Wax Fruit Company and I really fell in love with the free image.  It works for so many different occassions be it birthday, get well, sympathy, etc - but I figured since I'm behind on Easter cards, thats what I'll go with.  Here is the sketch provided by Arielle of Wax Fruit:

  2. Sara you amaze me with your fantastic cards, I never can create anything from sketches but love view all the designs you make. :) Lori m

  3. Sara this card is gorgeous! Very elegant with the little touches of pearls here and there, they really tie in the wonderful polka dot papers that you have used. And the color of purple that you went with for the crocus makes it seem so wonderfully delicate. As always, a wonderful creation for all to enjoy.

  4. Very pretty CAS card!! I love the soft colors you chose.
