Challenge #182

Good day to all!  I hope you are having a great week.  I am sure it is a busy one.  In North America, it is back-to-school time and I am sure everyone is getting back into a routine.  I sure hope that routine involves more crafting time for you.
Our top three were very difficult to pick this week with 10 of the 13 entries receiving votes. Wow! Talk about hard choices.  After a great deal of thought, here are the top 3 for challenge #180 (in no particular order):

You know that the quality is high when that many cards garner votes so hats off to you, our top 3. 

Now for this week's sketch:
(This is my very favourite sketch of all time - so far, that is)

And the samples from the ladies:

Our team has shown you some AMAZING cards based on our sketch!  You just have to be inspired, I know it.  So please post your own creations below.
Thanks so much for dropping by this week!

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.
