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. ;)

Challenge #21

You know what day it is!! Yay for Fridays! :D
Thank you all so very much for the wonderful entries in last week's challenge. Your take on the sketches were amazing! It's always so hard to pick a top 3 as all of your cards truly reflect on your personalities and styles. From time to time I ask friends to make 'ghost' judge appearances (also card makers and crafters) to help pick their favorites. This way I get a nice mix of styles and preferences to showcase. ;)
Without further ado, this week a huge congratulations to the following ladies:

Thank you ladies! If your name is listed, please contact me for next week's Bar-Tender's concoction.
And now for a big announcement - after Suzi stepped down to take on wonderful design teams, we welcomed Erika Taylor to our Design Team!! Erika has an amazing blog HERE, and started this week as a designer. You can see her first card, with this week's challenge:
Celebrate Summer!

Ah yes, the wonderful lazy days of summer is upon us, so interpret this theme any way that you'd like! Here are some adorable samples by the Designers, starting with our Guest Bar-Tenders:
