A Sassy sentiment for a SASSY CARD! I once again have to say I LOVE ELEGANT EDGES! Of course when paired with Echo Park paper what's not to love right??

I recently (on Easter Sunday) lost my Papa to cancer. I am broken hearted by the loss of a great man! I spent the last week and a half of my Papa's precious life at his side...I will forever cherish EVERY moment I spent with him, if any of you have a loved please don't miss precious moments with them. I pray you all are strong and continue to fight.
