WWC138 - The Winners

It's Tuesday and time to announce the Rock Star and Rockers for Marsha's "All About Christmas" Challenge.  But first, we'd like to thank everyone who played along with with us.  Your entries were wonderful and as a result it made our choices harder.

Penny's choice for the Watercooler Rock Star is Margreet's  adorable "Daisy May with a Candle" Christmas card.  Following the winner are the Watercooler Artists choices for the Watercooler Rockers.
Marsha's Winner:  I love the adorable image of the little girl that you have colored to match the wonderful patterned papers you've used in your design.  The poinsettias are a perfect finishing touch.

Congratulation, Margreet!  Here is your badge to proudly display on your blog designating you as our Watercooler Rock Star!

Now it's time for the Watercooler Artists to share their choices for our Watercooler Rockers.
Judy's Choice:  I love the total cuteness of this card and all the attention to detail!
Heidi's Choice:  The elegance and simplicity (and the image) appeal to me. And I love the way she's used the piercing dies so effectively.

Gail's Choice:  I love the greens and blues against the black background, with the silver border. A very striking design!

Penny's Choice: At first glance I was really struck by the magical quality of the deer image but then the galaxy of stars created on the masked background captured my heart. I was also very inspired by the non-traditional mix of light blue and lilac for a Christmas card.

Libby's Choice:  Love the traditional colors. Cute layout too. And, that elf!! Adorbs!
 
Charlotte's Choice:  I love the white and gold colour scheme. The deer is very pretty and pops beautifully on its focal panel against the lovely vellum background.

Kath's Choice: I love a good shaker card!

Congratulations to Jane, Angie, Pretti, Sharon, Monika, Donna and Jan.  Here is your badge to proudly display on your blog designating you as our Watercooler Rockers.
