I hope your week is going well, it is finally starting to feel like spring here. I am not a fan of the cold weather so I'm looking forward to warmer days. :)
Before we announce the top 3 of this week's challenge, I wanted to personally thank you all for being a part of Raise The Bar. When I started this site, it was a chance for me to challenge my own self, to raise my own bar when it came to creating, and of course being inspired by your designs as well.
Thanks to you, I've been introduced to some wonderful stamp and paper companies, just by adoring your work! I have also met the most wonderful group of designers who, week after week, have produced such amazing cards.
This summer is a huge transition for my family - we have our oldest going off to college, our youngest starting Kindergarten, and moving where the Army sends us. My husband will hit 20 years of active duty, and we've been fortunate to live in Virginia for 8 of those years.
With that said, Raise The Bar will close its doors at the end of April. By coincidence, the two remaining Bar-Tenders Thanh and Peggy, have been handpicked to be on The Greeting Farm's Design Team, so we will all still have the chance to create together! YAY! From the Bar to the Farm... ;)
Every challenge of this month will have a goodbye theme, more on that in a bit.
For now congratulations to this week's top 4 designers (just because it was so hard to choose!!):
Kathy of Will Stamp for Wine
Danni of Danni's Dreams
Vicky of Crafting Vicky
Leona of Cards by Leona
