OCC - Clear Thinking

Before we start with our challenge today, Our Creative Corner would to thank all that visit our Blog and participate in our weekly challenges! We had a wonderful year thanks to all of you! Our next round of challenges in 2009 will bring a few NEW surprises and more mid-week challenges to try. Please stop by Wednesday, December 31st for a fun announcement and giveaway.

Welcome to Our Creative Corner. Thanks to everyone who plays along with us each week! We hope you all had a fabulous holiday. Before we get to today's challenge, we'd like to announce the winner of last week's prize drawing. The winner of the $30 Verve Stamps Gift Certificate is... Patty (SCS-pepperrn)! Congratulations Patty, please email us to claim your prize!

This week's challenge is to add something clear to your project.
It can be anything you want – an acetate card or shaker, an acrylic shape, a clear button or embellishment, clear embossing powder, cello bag, etc. The sky's the limit! We can't wait to see what you come up with.

Remember there is no time limit on our challenges - feel free to participate whenever you are able. To play along, upload your creation to your blog or gallery, then leave us a comment linking to your project so we can check it out. If you upload to SCS, remember to use keyword: OCCC

Our special guest designer this week is Jen Tapler! Don't you just love this awesome little Cosmo kit she made to ring in the new year? Just fabulous!
