Our Creative Corner - Which Anniversary is it?!!!

Hello friends... Welcome to another fun challenge here at Our Creative Corner!! We want to thank all those that stopped by & played along with our no flower Mother's Day card! What amazing creativity that you used butterflies, critters and classy flourishes instead!!



Here is a beautiful sample from last week's challenge. We are featuring Iwona Palamountain from Random Acts of Creativity - what a gorgeous layout, design and what wonderful little button accents!! You can check out Iwona's blog to see more of her stunning creations!!

Our sponsor this week is i {heart} papers! They are an online store for paper crafters. They have a wide variety of stamps, papers, copic markers, tools, and embellishments. Kate, the owner, is generously giving away a $25 Gift Certificate to one random participant this week. In order to qualify for this prize, you have to submit your creation no later then Friday, May 14th by 10:00 PM EST. Be sure to stop by the i {heart} papers store to see all the fabulous goodies!




Now, on to this weeks challenge! With spring, wedding season has begun. This means that ANNIVERSARY season has begun as well! From our May hostess, Loretta, our is challenge is to make an Anniversary card with the recipient's specific year in mind. We all know the 25th anniversary is silver and the 50th is golden, but what about the twelfth anniversary or the seventh? Feel free to use this link for happy-anniversary.com and make a card based on either your anniversary or the anniversary year of the recipient. Or just pick your favourite anniversary gifts by year to inspire your card!

To play along, upload your creation to your blog or gallery, then link it here with the direct link with our NEW linky system. If you upload to SCS, remember to use keyword: OCCC

Here are some samples from our Design Team to get your juices flowing. Our May hostess will start us off:

  6. This is a great challenge! Thank you. Unfortunately, technology has been a greater challenge today. Once I finally got my card uploaded and found your link, the link works but the image did not. Not sure what happened, but if you click on that crazy icon my card is hiding there. Sorry about that.
