WWC199 - The Watercooler Rock Star and Rockers

Drum roll, please!  It's Tuesday time to announce our Watercooler Rock Star and Watercooler Rockers for Tristan's Feminine "Anything Goes" challenge.  But first, we'd like to thank all those who played along with us.  Wonderful entries that make our choices so much harder, but we think you are all stars.  Well done!

Gail's choice for our Watercooler Rock Star is Natasa's gorgeous flower girl card.  Following the winner are the Watercooler Artists choices for the Watercooler Rockers.

Tristan's Winner:  Natasa has created a very sweet card with her flower fairy. I love the soft colouring and colour she chose and the enbossed striped background provide perfect balance for her focal image. She certainly is a gorgeous girl.

Congratulations, Natasa!  Here is your badge to proudly display on your blog designating you as our Watercooler Rock Star.


Now on to the other wonderful designs that caught the eyes of the other Watercooler Artists for our Watercooler Rockers.  They are shown in no particular order.

Marsha's Choice:  I love the clean and simple design of Sharon's card.  And, of course, the bling.  A very pretty card.

Gail's Choice:  I love the pillow box! Ma-Mi has combined a lot of little details and it doesn't look crowded. This package is as much of a gift as whatever would be inside.


Karen's Choice:   This card just speaks to me. I LOVE the water coloring on the card and the end result is uncluttered and very effective. Nicely executed.

Dawn's Choice:  I really like the pink and grey colour combination. The colouring on the rabbit is amazing and the die hearts finish the card beautifully.

Helen's Choice:  Kathy's CAS card is very elegant with it's subtle stencil colour in the background. Great matching envelope!

Donna's Choice:   Raga's card is so gorgeous with it's graphite stenciled background and beautifully colored flowers. Her card is elegant in its simplicity, yet clever in its creation!

Heidi's Choice:   Kate's wedding card is gorgeous. The soft pinks and the white embossing are absolutely stunning, especially with those added tiny pearls.

Kath's Choice:  Robyn has made a nice simple card pairing White and lovely pink DSP.

Charlotte's Choice:  Beverley has made a great coffee themed feminine card. The flamingo is so fun as is the sentiment. I also like the pops of black and white alongside the pink.

Congratulations, Sharon, Ma-Mi, Rosi, Lynda, Kathy, Raga, Kate, Robyn and Beverly.  Here is your badge to proudly display on your blog designating you as one of our Watercooler Rockers.


That's our lineup for this weeks' Watercooler Rock Star and Watercooler Rockers.  Be sure to come back tomorrow, December 12th, for our next Watercooler Wednesday Challenge.  You won't want to miss all the wonderful designs by our Watercooler Artists.

WWC198 - The Watercooler Rock Star and Rockers

Drum roll, please!  It's Tuesday time to announce our Watercooler Rock Star and Watercooler Rockers for Gail's "All About Holidays" challenge.  But first, we'd like to thank all those who played along with us.  Wonderful entries that make our choices so much harder, but we think you are all stars.  Well done!

Gail's choice for our Watercooler Rock Star is Lynda's beautiful non-traditional poinsettia card.  Following the winner are the Watercooler Artists choices for the Watercooler Rockers.

Gail's Winner:  Lynda created a wonderful Christmas card in non-traditional colours. All that lovely texture in the background and the pearls dotted are a beautiful complement to the distressed-looking flower. This has a vintage-y feel to it that I really love.

Congratulations, Lynda!  Here is your badge to proudly display on your blog designating you as our Watercooler Rock Star.


Now on to the other beautiful designs that caught the eyes of the other Watercooler Artists for our Watercooler Rockers.  They are shown in no particular order.

Marsha's Choice: I love the background Tammy has made to showoff the joy sentiment.  The gold embossing and the touches of color make for a lovely Christmas card.  Beautiful!

Kath's Choice:  Gwendolyn has painted a beautiful sky for her background. The sky makes the 
die-cut pop.

Tristan's Choice:  Angela created a great layout and colour scheme for her card. The reindeer, snowman and Santa look like they're peeking out windows.

Heidi's Choice:  Deb's little fairy is such fun. Love the sparkle and combination of scalloped dies.

Helen's Choice:  Claire has created such a super cute CAS card with this sweet little penguin atop the fun word, die cut from marble effect paper, created with shaving cream! Great fun against the red background!

Charlotte's Choice:  Trina has created a really adorable CAS Christmas card. The ink blended sky is wonderful, the colouring perfect, and the little dog is so cute!

Congratulations, Tammy, Gwendolyn, Angela, Deb, Claire and Trina.  Here is your badge to proudly display on your blog designating you as one of our Watercooler Rockers.


That's our lineup for this weeks' Watercooler Rock Star and Watercooler Rockers.  Be sure to come back tomorrow, December 5th, for our next Watercooler Wednesday Challenge.  You won't want to miss all the wonderful designs by our Watercooler Artists.
