OCC - Add a Doodle


This weeks challenge at the OCC is to add a doodle! Yes ladies, that does mean pull out some pens and start to scribble, or use a doodley stamp or a doodle chipboard...the possibilities are endless! We would love it if you would link your creation back to Our Creative Corner so that we can see your wonderful creations :) If you are uploading your card to SCS, then please use the letters OCCC in the keyword box so that it automatically loads into the OCC gallery there.



March usually brings change and it sure has at the OCC. Some of the girls have moved on to other commitments and we wish them the best of luck, but will miss them deeply :) With that said...we have some surprises for this month over at Our Creative Corner. We have welcomed 5 new girls to the design team! Please help me extend a warm welcome to the newest members of the OCC:


Now for some info about my card :) I used my new stamp from Whipper Snapper Designs to make this card. I love this particular stamp because every time I look at it, he makes me laugh! The sentiment was computer generated and then cut out with my word window punch. I choose to use the sketch from this weeks mojo challenge and I actually made a regular A2 sized card! Whoa, nelly! I can't even remember the last time I made a card that size!

My main image is watercoloured and then the jar part was coated in crystal effects. I added some texture by embossing some of the designer paper, stitching with my sewing machine, adding eyelets and adding hemp twine with some knots for some fun.

Just a reminder about my 100,000 hit blog candy! If you haven't already entered to win it, you can do so here.
