Hi to everyone! Thanks for visiting this week.  
Let's begin with the top 3 from Challenge # 179.  here they are in no particular order:

I think the team did a great job choosing three awesome cards.  Congrats to our top 3 and to everyone who entered for some really great work!

Now for this week's sketch:

And our theme is still "Whatever Makes You Happy"

Here are the examples from the ladies on our team:

Once again, ladies, your cards are truly an inspiration.  I am so lucky to have such a great team.  And I am sure that your work will spur others on to create beautiful cards of their own.  I cannot wait to see what everyone comes up with.

Now, just one last note.  This week we are wishing Rose a good bye (but, who knows, she may be back).  At this time, she has to step down and she will be sadly missed.

Take care all, and have a good week.
