OCC - Sketch Challenge

Hello OCC friends and happy New Year!! All of us at Our Creative Corner would like to wish you all a healthy and happy 2009!

A big thanks to Julee Tilman who brought us the December challenges. This month, we welcome our January host, Jennifer Meyer. To kick off the new year, Jennifer has put together a fun sketch.

Our special guest designer for the week is Shannon Erskine (E3stamper on SCS). Not only has she put together a sample for this week’s challenge but she is also donating a NEW set called Owlentine from Treehouse stamps to one lucky winner from this week’s challenge participants. Thank you Shannon & Ashley!!


Ordinarily, there is no time limit on our challenges, but this week, to be entered into the drawing, you must have your project linked up here in the comments section by 12 noon Eastern Time on Friday, January 8th. We’ll draw a random name from the entries and announce the winner on Saturday, January 9th, along with out next challenge.



To kick-off 2009, here the samples from the OCC ~

  77. Hello everyone. Happy New Year to you all.

    I vowed in 2009 I would continue to make all my cards solely to sell to raise funds for charity BUT I would try to take part in challenges as that would be something for "me".

    Here's my card for your challenge. The green background paper is printed from the Artylicious Damask Delights CD, just plain cream card stock and the bottom frill is from some shiny red daisy paper I've had for some time. The image is from my new Lovins stamp set and coloured in with Lyra Watercolours. The little heart has been cut out of the same red paper used for the frill.


    I hope this entry is OK and I have done things right. Please let me know if I haven't. I will try to enter more.
