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 #30

Happy Friday everyone!
Wowza - I cannot believe that we are on our 30th week of challenges. Amazing! You all have been so wonderful and supportive. Now before I start on to the usuals, I have a couple of announcements.
*First off, there has been a suggestion for prizes. Would that encourage you all to participate? Or is the Bar-Tender badge enough of bragging rights? I originally began this challenge site for us to use what we have already accumulated in our craft supplies. However, I do know how gratifying it is to win a prize!
*This week you may notice less cards from the Design Team. 2 of our wonderful Bar-Tenders have stepped down - Darlene and Audrey were both here when we opened the Bar! Thank you so much ladies for all the hours you've spent mixing up card concoctions, we will miss you! With that said, I am on the hunt for 2 more designers to be here with us. All you have to do is link up your cards and put (DT) next to it, indicating that you would like to try out for the team. This will run throughout August, I will contact the new employees to begin their term in September! I hope you consider trying out, I am a really easy boss. ;) As a DT member, cards need to be completed by Thursday so I can post them to the blog, and everyone is assigned a number to comment on entries for the week. That's it! Hope to see lots of applications...
And now on to the top 3 this week for our sticker challenge:

Congratulations ladies! Please contact me for next week's challenge and your chance to be a guest designer.
This week we want you to show us your
heehee! Create a card using pearls, done in off white colors, or using an image with pearls - the sky is the limit! This week our DT has come up with some beautiful samples, starting with our Guest Bar-Tenders:

  1. Joni, Thanks so much for choosing my card as one of your top three! I also appreciated your wonderful comments on my blog! The DT & GD did a pearl of a job on this challenge! Can't wait to see what everyone comes up with!

  2. Gorgeous cards!! What a fun challenge, looking forward to playing along. As far as prizes go, I don't think it's necessary, I think the badge is enough recognition for a card/project well made :)

  3. AMAZING cards by the DT! Thanks so much for another GREAT challenge Joni. I think the badge is perfect for winners:)

  4. Joni - I have emailed you - thanks so much!

  5. Hi Joni, this challenge was just what I was looking for...and I couldn't resist :)
