OOAK Artisan Showcase is having a creative challenge and you are invited to participate!

Our challenge will be open to jewelry designers, greeting card makers, photographers and visual artists. The theme of this challenge is based on the holiday movie classic, It’s a Wonderful Life.

It starred James Stewart. The film is now considered one of the most popular films in American cinema and due to numerous television showings in the 1980s has become traditional viewing during the Christmas season.” ~ Wikipedia
