WWC102 - Libby's LOVE in Red on White Clean and Simple Chalenge

This week Libby Fens is hosting our Clean and Simple challenge.  She has given us the theme of Love in Red on White.  Take a look at the great inspiration photo and let your creativity flow.

I'd like to take this time to introduce you to our newest Watercooler Artist, Heather Hopson.  She has come on board for the next three months and will be sharing her wonderful projects with you.  Here is what Heather has to say about herself:  "I am a happily married lady with a cat named Jellicoe.   We love to dance, camp, rockhound, and to entertain. We have a beautiful back yard and love to have our friends over for barbecues.  I love to make cards and also love the Joy that a "Homemade card" brings to others." 


Now here's a look at what the Watercooler Artists have done to help inspire you.  Now, head into your craft room start creating.  We can't wait to see how you were inspired.









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

WWC101 - Jean's Color Challenge

This week Jean Fitch is hosting our first color challenge of 2017.  She has chosen some great colors for us to work with.  With many of us in the middle of winter with cold and snow, these bright, cheerful colors will be a nice way to brighten up the day.

Last week was Deborah Smart's last challenge with us here at the Watercooler Wednesday Challenge.  She has decided to step down to focus her interests elsewhere.  We wish her all the best and hope you will continue to visit her blog to see what she's creating.  Thanks for being a part of the team, Deborah!


So, get creating and show us how you were inspired by these beautiful colors.  Just check out the terrific ways in which the Watercooler Artists were inspired this week.

WWC99 - Marsha's Clean & Simple (CAS) Make It With Hearts Challenge

This week Marsha Reed is hosting a Clean And Simple (CAS) challenge for you.  There's only one catch.  You need to include a heart somewhere in your project.  Wedding, anniversary, birthday or Valentine's Day, hearts are the order of the day.

The rules are simple for our Clean And Simple challenge.  Show lots of open space, use minimal layers and use minimal embellishments.  The Watercooler Artists have given you many great examples of what our Clean And Simple challenge looks like.

Due to the holidays, this is our last challenge for 2016.  It will run for two weeks so, you have until 5:00 p.m. Mountain Time on Monday, January 2, 2017 to link up your project.
