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. ;)

Did someone say SUMMER?

Why yes, yes we did! Summer is our JUNE challenge, the Bar-Tenders are taking it nice and easy over the next three months. However, I will post more inspiration every Friday with a link back to the original post for you to enter in on our challenge. SUMMER is here and we want to see how you celebrate it! No more than 3 entries per talented crafter please, all winners will be announced the first Friday of July. :) And please note - if you don't see your name after linking (not sure why it's cutting off on the side), I am trying to figure out how to make the linky links a bit smaller. Do not worry - I have the master list so you won't be overlooked!
So how do you embrace the warmer days?

From our Guest Bar-Tender Marsha Drain:

Happy trees, a tire swing, and little critter visitors!

And our other Guest Bar-Tender Pinky:

Ahhh, camping. 

From our amazing Bar-Tenders:

Now it's your turn to show us your work! Click >HERE< to get to the original post to link up your creations. Please be sure it is a direct URL to your post, and not to your blog in general (although we are positive your entire blog is beautiful!). Have a beautiful weekend everyone! See you next Friday with more inspiration!

Challenge #107

Happy June 1st everyone!
I hope you all are having a great week so far and ready to take on another beautiful month!
Last week we made a little announcement regarding our laid back plans for RTB this summer. We will have ONE theme for each month of June, July, and August, so you have plenty of time to play along. Before we get to that special theme of June, congratulations to - well - our Congratulations themed card makers! ;)

Ladies please message me at with GUEST BAR-TENDER as the subject line.
And now on to this month's challenge:


Come show us your sunny creations because we want to see how you interpret summer!
(PLEASE NOTE: Since this will be a month long theme we ask that you please limit your entries to THREE a month. Thank you so much!}

 summer means fresh fruit season!
