It’s FRIDAY! I’m sure I’m not the only one who’s thrilled to have made it through a hectic week! Leah the Orange joining you on a super sunny day in South Jersey, and I have the fun task of sharing some happy news with two winners and I’m sure their projects will inspire you for the weekend!
Before I get to our winners, I want to throw down a very warm and heartfelt THANK YOU to each of the Odd Girls who shared this little corner of the web with us for the last 6 months. It has been a wonderful term, and we have gotten to know you all and come to call you our very dear friends. You will, undoubtedly, continue to inspire those whose crafty lives you touch, and that certainly includes me.
Ladies, you will truly be missed. Your dedication to your craft and your enthusiasm for Some Odd Girl has pushed us just a little further and we hope you continue to love working with these images. We hope you’ll still be hanging out in our Ning community and in our Facebook group, and maybe even playing along with our challenges! Regardless, we sincerely appreciate all you’ve done during your term, and we’ll catch you on the flip side, chicas. Sending you all BIG HUGS and love across the blogosphere and the miles and oceans. You have been truly SENSATIONAL! xoxoxoxoxoxox
Okay, sappy Leah, time to show our Odd friends what they wanna see.
Now, WINNERS! Thank you, thank you, thank you ALL who played along in our March Sketch Challenge – your projects were STUNNING and, as always, my heart is warmed when I see so many older images being incorporated into your crafting. Some people used the same images, and the diversity is always so much fun! Let’s start off with the winner of 3 digis of their choice, as chosen by Random.org – it’s THIS leedle project:
Congrats, Mette! (And folks, click the image, seriously – Tropical Mae looks amazing with her little freckles, and it’s such a gorgeous card!) I love the clean and simple design here, and the colors are just so calming, then the sentiment just makes me giggle. 🙂 We all know someone who LOOKS innocent and presents themselves as such, but under all that we know they’re little stinkers 🙂 I can name a few! Well Mette, thank you for sharing your project with us and for making our gal look extra STUNNING! Can’t wait to see what you’ll make with the 3 digis you’ve won!
Next, our favorite entry. This was TOUGH, people! Seriously, you keep blowing my mind with your clever ideas and gorgeous color combinations and fun effects! For me, it often boils down to what’s jumping off the screen and catching my attention – whether it’s due to a fun shape, or a bold design, or some unexpected colors, or the way a pattern is used, or whatever. Sometimes it’s about the actual coloring of the image (but not always!). This particular project just kept calling to me, and I’m sure you’ll understand why. Check it out:
ERMAHGERD. Are you kidding me? Elena has combined the gorgeous Fairy Magic stamps (the image and the little starbursts) with the mushies and sentiment from the Pixie Dust set, and I can consider myself awestruck by the whole thing. The monochromatic background stamping, the SERIOUS pop of the image with the cherry blossoms (is that washi?), the doodled stitching (swoon), and the subtle houndstooth pattern… Crikey. This is just beautiful, and Elena, you have TOTALLY inspired me for the weekend! Thank you for sharing your beautiful creation with us, for rocking the SOGgies, and for blowing my mind! 🙂
WOO HOO to our winners, and ladies, please send your information to Kristy@someoddgirl.com to let her know your stamp choices! Mette, 3 digis are coming your way, and Elena, the 4″ x 6″ clear set of your choice.
Thanks to EVERYONE who played along! I’d love to see our challenges getting bigger and better, so come back on Monday when we kick off a new TERM with some new ODD GIRLS and a new CHALLENGE! It’s going to be one heck of a party!
Later, taters! Enjoy your weekend!
