OCC Challenge - Mother's Day

Hello OCC Friends!! First off, we want to say thank you to everyone that participated in last week's Color Challenge. We get so much inspiration from seeing your creations each week!! A huge thanks to Silke Ledlow, our April host, for the fabulous challenges!!

This week, we want to introduce our May host, Robin Willis. Robin has challenged us to create something for the special moms in our lives for Mother's Day.

Before we get started with the samples, we would like to announce the winner of the Little Paper Shop's giveaway. Congrats to Patti J. - Cherish Each Precious Day. Please e-mail us your address so we can forward the goodies to you.

For the month of May, we are excited to announce that all of the challenges will be sponsored by our very own Jennifer Meyer of Stamps and Smiles! Jennifer will generously be giving away a $20 Gift Certificate each week. We are excited to announce that her next release will start on Monday, May 4th thru Friday, May 8th. Lots of prizes to be won!!

PLUS this week we have an extra bonus!! My Little Ribbon Shop is offering two additional giveaways. Each prize will include Cosmo Cricket goodies along with 10 yards of ribbon (your choice). For those that LOVE ribbon… My Little Ribbon Shop is offering FREE shipping to the OCC readers on orders placed May 2-4, 2009. When checking out, please include OCC in the comments section.

To play along, upload your creation to your blog or gallery, then include a link in the Mr. Linky form at the bottom of this post so we can check it out.
