I wasn't able to participate over the weekend. However, the challenges are still open this week and I really wanted to play along. Here is the first challenge (posted by Nancy Keller at Scrap Happens):
"My challenge is to make a winter or Christmas themed card for OWH following a sketch!"
Here is my card. The squares are cut at 1". This was a fun technique. It uses up scraps and creates a nice layout for the card.
