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


Now it's on to the Watercooler Artists choices for our Watercooler Rockers.

Heidi's Choice:  This stunning card certainly proves that less is more. Love the stitched panel, the image, the embossing, the sentiment and, last but not least, the sparkle.

Charlotte's Choice:  I just love the clean and simple design. The colours pop so beautifully and the looseness of the watercolour is fabulous.

Judy's Choice:  The coloring of this image is amazing! I love all the details!
