OCC Sketch Challenge

Happy Saturday from all of us at Our Creative Corner. A big thanks to everyone who played in last week's Basic Grey challenge! Wow, there are a lot of you who love Basic Grey as much as we do - what an inspiration you've been to us!

Before we announce the next challenge, we would like to congratulate craftyc, winner of the $15 Jacksonbelle gift certificate. Please contact us at ourcreativecorner6@sbcglobal.net so we can get your winnings to you!

A new month brings a new OCC host! Jennifer Meyer is the creative genius behind all of the OCC challenges for July. To start off the month, Jennifer brings us this awesome sketch challenge:



We can't wait to see your creations!! Remember to leave a comment here on this post with a link to your project. If you upload to SCS, use keyword: OCCC, which stands for Our Creative Corner Challenge (same keyword each week so it's easy to remember).

Did you like the prize last week? We did too!! So we're doing another giveaway, this time courtesy of Tamara McKlveen of Mothers & Daughters Creations! One lucky winner from this week's challenge participants will be awarded a $20 gift certificate, good at Mothers & Daughters Creations. PLUS anyone who places an order from July 5th - July 12th will receive 10% off the entire order. To be entered into the drawing, we ask you to have your card linked up here in the comments section by 12 noon Eastern Time on Friday. We'll draw a random name from the entries and announce the winner on Saturday, July 12th, along with our next challenge. Coupon code "OCC10".

Thank you so much, Tamara!! Be sure to check out Mothers & Daughters Creations, where you'll find all kinds of fun papercrafting goodies, including the very newest Black Magic "Core'dinations." Tell her the OCC sent you!

Tamara was also gracious enough to provide us (and you) with a sketch sample! We're so glad to have you play along this week, Tamara!


Next, take a look at what the OCC designers have put together:

By Jennifer Meyer - Jennifer's Sweet Designs




By Cindy Haffner - Cindy Haffner's Corner




By Amy Sheffer - Pickled Paper Designs




By Denise Marzec - The Paper Landscaper
