I live in London, England and my blog is London Days where you will see I am very much a 'Clean and Simple' designer. In fact I am happiest just using stamps and inks and making one layer cards! I call it 'stamp and go'!  I run the challenge Time Out Challenges where I also get to use my love of administration.  I delight in visiting other crafters' blogs have made friends from all over the world through crafting.  I can't wait to see what you will all be creating.

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

Karen's choice for our Watercooler Rock Star is Deepti's beautiful one-layer card. Following the winner are the Watercooler Artists choices for the Watercooler Rockers.


Karen's Winner:  Deepti has created a stunning floral card. Her artistry is amazing, her background is gorgeous, the color scheme is eye-catching and the flowers are truly beautiful! 

Congratulations, Deepti!  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 Shani's cute little pickle.  The sentiment is such fun.  I really like that it is a Christmas card, too.  Beautiful colors and well done!

Dawn's Choice:   he bokeh background looks amazing and the way Izzy has left the leaves uncoloured so they pop is inspirational.

Gail's Choice:  It is great nature card. The bird and bird cage really pop from the sunny-looking background. 

Tristan's Choice:   I love how clever Sharon was in creating this customized card. Who doesn't love a bit of Chris?!


Kath's Choice:  I love how the image covers 3 panels. The colors feel like spring and makes me happy. It would be perfect as a Thank you, Birthday, or Thinking of You card!

Heidi's Choice:   Heather has created an adorable Valentine using one of those terrific Tim Holtz cat images. The colours are perfect and the layout as well. A terrific CAS Valentine which brings a smile to my face.

Donna's Choice:  Cornelia's birds on a line are so funny with their expressive eyes, and the way she so expertly colored them! She did a great job of selecting colors so that each bird has it's own personality, yet they all seem part of a harmonious whole. I'm still smiling just thinking about Cornelia's card!

Congratulations Shani, Izzy, Maria, Sharon, Nisha, Heather and Cornelia!   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, January 16th, for our next Watercooler Wednesday Challenge.  You won't want to miss all the wonderful designs by our Watercooler Artists.

WWC202 - The Watercooler Rock Star and Rockers!

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

Dawn's choice for our Watercooler Rock Star is Rahmat's beautifully hand drawn flowers. Following the winner are the Watercooler Artists choices for the Watercooler Rockers.


Dawn's Winner:  Rahmat‘s hand drawn flowers are so beautiful The colours are so realistic. The way she had partially cut out the flowers is inspirational. The addition of the subtle embossing and the washi adds the perfect texture.

Congratulations, Rahmat!  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 Michelle's smooshing technique background in blue. It is perfect for the flower and sentiment. A classically clean and simple card.

Heidi's Choice:  Jaydee has created such a fun, feminine card using that lovely French Press stamp and the croissant. The shimmer really adds a lot of dimension (and makes the croissant look good enough to eat). Love the fun sentiment, too.

Donna's choice:  Angie's card is quite an eye-catching creation!!! Love the colors and attention to detail. The B&W striped Washi tape at the bottom really helps her card make a statement! Her coloring of the flowers is amazing!!!

Kath's Choice:  Natasa's tulips are bursting with happy Spring colors! The gray base is the perfect backdrop for a card that makes me forget it is winter outside my window.

Gail's Choice:   I love vintage! This card has it all: vintage vibe, ephemera, and great colouring.

Tristan's Choice:   Inky Fingers has created a fun cheeky birthday card. Great colouring of the image. I can almost feel the flames!

Karen's Choice:  I love the multi-media background...so much interest! I also love the beautiful colors Cathy selected. Very special card.

Helen's Choice:  Anita has created a wonderful CAS card with beautiful glossy yellow hearts and a perfect sentiment!

Congratulations Michelle, Jaydee, Angie, Natasa, Avril, Cath, Cathy and Anita!   Here is your badge to proudly display on your blog designating you as one of our Watercooler Rockers.
