OCC - Sketch Challenge

Hi everyone and welcome to Our Creative Corner! A HUGE thanks to everyone who played in last week's Inspiration Challenge!! This week, February's hostess Laurie Schmidlin has cooked up a sketch challenge for you!



A sketch is such a wonderful way to get the creativity flowing! While it's great to stay true to the sketch, please feel free to adjust the sketch to suit your particular card (i.e. flip it, change the circles to squares or some other shape, omit the ribbon, etc.). Just have fun with it! :-)

Want even more of a challenge? Why not send your finished card to someone who means a lot to you (who maybe you don't tell often enough). It could be anyone...a co-worker, a neighbor, an extended family member, a close family member for that matter :-), a friend, or how about someone you know who's serving in the Armed Forces? When you are ready to play, just link your creation below using Mr. Linky. If you upload to SCS, please include the keyword OCCC. Oh, and don't forget to tell us who the special "someone" is that you are sending your card to, and why they mean so much to you (you can do that in the comments section below)!


Also, this week we want to welcome Guest Designer Tosha Leyendekker! Thanks so much, Tosha, for playing along with us this week! Here is Tosha's STUNNING creation...

  3. Ok...I really didn't want to be first! But I don't know when I'll get another chance to post. If you take a look at mine, be sure to scroll down a bit. My OCC card is a bit below Beate's Weekend Sketch card.
    Thanks!

  28. Okay, just posted the card I did for this week's challenge - which was great! I'll be sending this to my sister. She fosters dogs in her home and just loves animals - she is the reason I bought this stamp set. I am so proud of the person she is, her caring and her compassion so this will certainly go to her to brighten her day.
