OCC Sketch Challenge and Prize!!!

Welcome to Our Creative Corner! Thanks to all who played along last week, your snowy creations rocked the house! Also a big thanks to Denise Marzec for all the awesome November challenges.

Our December challenge hostess is Julee Tilman and she's starting the month off with a sketch challenge with a prize donated by this week's very special guest designer Alma de la Rosa. Alma is the swanky leader of The Cats Pajamas Rubber Stamps and one cool cat!

Wanna play along and have a chance to win some shiny new stamps? Just upload your creation to your blog or gallery and leave us a link here in this post so we can see what you made! To be included in a random drawing for the gorgeous Elegant Christmas and Fairy Christmas sets, please have your project linked here by 12 noon on Friday, December 12. If you upload to Splitcoast, please include OCCC in the keywords. The winner will be announced next Saturday, December 13th.
