This challenge is anything but SQUARE!!!!

Well it's Saturday and you know what that means ~ OCC time... We have another fun challenge from our October host Lynda Benden. This week's challenge is anything but square. Just create a card that is ANY shape EXCEPT Square or Rectangle! Think you can do it... if you do, there is something in it for you!

We have some homemade spooky goodies for one lucky winner. To be entered into the random prize drawing, post a link to your Blog/Gallery with this week's challenge. If you upload to Splitcoast, please include "OCCC" in the keywords. All cards need to be linked here by noon on Friday, October 17th! We will post the winner the following Saturday, October 18th!

    Hope it's okay that I double-dipped!

  20. I would normally shy away from this kind of challenge. The temptation of homemade goodies was just too strong. And then...I had an idea. Now, I am not convinced that it was an original idea. I think it turned out well! Here is the link: http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/gallery/photo/1089335?cat=500&ppuser=156271
