WWC174 - Gail's "All About Occasions" Challenge

Woo Hoo!  It's Gail's turn to host one of our favourite challenges, the "All About Occasions" challenge.  There are endless types of occasions that come around all year long.  This is our chance to share what we create.

We have some awesome cards to share with you all, but first we have to say goodbye to two of our team members.  Penny Hanuszak, one of our long-term Watercooler Artists and Tenia Nelson, who hasn't been with us as long, are both leaving for personal and family reasons.  We'll miss their wonderful creativity.

As a result, we're having a Design Team Call.  Read carefully and please follow our instructions if you are interested in being considered for our team.

          1.  Please email Heidi Weaver at with your 
               reasons for wanting to be part of the team and what you believe
               you can bring to the challenge.
          2.  Please link your creation up to the challenge.  There is no need
               to put DT.  We will check out your blog as well as the card you
               link up.
          3.  We run this challenge as a team effort.  We have a new challenge 
               each week  to which to whole team contributes.  Everyone is 
               expected to vote for their top choice each week.  Deadlines and
               rules are in place for the whole team to follow.
          4.  Deadline for DT call:  June 25th.  We will choose the new 
              Watercooler Artists before the end of June and their first challenge
               will be July 4th.

Now that we have that piece of business out of the way, let's get down to our awesome samples.  As usual we have some terrific projects by the Watercooler Artists to get your creative juices flowing.  You can see how many different Occasions our team has covered for this challenge.   For details on how the Watercooler Artists created their projects, just click on the name underneath and you will be taken to that blog post.  We begin with Gail's beautifully crafted and coloured Christmas card:

And now it's your turn.  You can join us by linking up your creation with the InLinkz at the bottom of this challenge. 

          1.  This must be a new project---no back-linking to a previous post.
          2.  You must link your project back to our challenge (details at top of    page).
          3.  You must link directly to your post, not simply your general blog.
          4.  Please link to no more than 8 challenges, including ours.
          5.  Have fun!

Please use the link-up below to share your project.  This Linky will close on Monday, June 18th  at 5:00 p.m. Mountain Daylight Time.
