OCC - Sketch Challenge

Welcome to Our Creative Corner challenge blog. Thanks to all who played in last week's challenge! All of your samples were gorgeous!!

Before we get started with this week's challenge, we'd like to give a shout-out to our very own Jennifer Meyer and congratulate her on the launch of her new stamp company, Stamps and Smiles. To help her celebrate, the OCC will be choosing one random winner from this week's challenge participants to receive this adorable set:

Best wishes to you Jennifer! (And don't worry, she's not going anywhere. You'll still see her wonderful samples here at the OCC blog every Saturday!)

Now for today's challenge. Our February hostess, Laurie Schmidlin, has created this fantastic sketch for us to work with:



To play along, just post your sketch project to your blog or gallery, then include a link in the Mr. Linky form at the bottom of this post so we can all easily find each other. If you upload to SCS, remember to use keyword: OCCC. To qualify for the prize drawing, have your card or project linked here by noon EST on Friday, March 6.

How about some samples to jump-start your creativity?

  10. I'd love to play Jennifer but I have a silly question.... do you have to use a specific company's stamps or am I free to use what I have to enter? Thanks in advance!
