Here at RTB we are so excited to kick off a new year of crafting!
We encourage you to challenge yourself, raise your own level of crafting, and keep your resolution to use those new stamping items. And yes, we will even use those supplies that you just had to have in your collection. ;)

Happy Friday everyone, and thank you so much for coming by. We truly love and appreciate your support here on Raise The Bar!
Thank you for your entries in the "I'm just sayin'" challenge last week - just BEAUTIFUL! If you have time to scroll through all the entries, you will see all the beautiful cards made with just sentiments. Amazing, and truly breathtaking!
It was no easy task to decide since everyone's creations were fit to be published in all the popular magazines. ;) Congratulations to the following friends:

(I have been inspired to create more sentiment cards with everyone's entries this week!) Ladies, please email me at for next week's assignment.
