Stay odd, friends!

Hello again, friends! Leah here, very anxious to show you all the projects from our lovely Odd Girls for our Stash Challenge #2!

Have you checked out the Some Odd Girl shop? NEW IMAGES were released this past Tuesday, and I’m pretty sure you’re going to love ’em! The reviews have been wonderful so far! You’ll be seeing a sampling of them in our cards today, but we have some business to take care of first, don’t we? 🙂

9 submissions for Style Challenge #1, using Kristy‘s sketch. NOT BAD! Thanks for joining us and sharing your beautiful creations! We were pleasantly surprised at how many of you used Some Odd Girl images! Of course you are welcome to use any images you like, but using one of ours will get you a second entry for the draw! And, well, there’s always a FREEBIE up for grabs, so why not double your chances, right?

That said, there were 9 entries, but 17 numbers went into the randomizer, and the winner of the lovely Mae as Alice image, plus one of your choice from the store, is #7……

She used Lounging Kaylee and submitted this GORGEOUS card:

GORGEOUS! Joanne, please email to get your Mae as Alice digi, and let her know which other image you’d like from the store. Congratulations! 🙂

We also have a blinkie for two of you to grab and post (if you like!) on your blogs, because we LOVED your cards! Our two faves for this week:

Amy (who used Nana Split):

and Karen (who used the April freebie, Mae’s Bouquet):

Please feel free to grab your blinkie, ladies,

(please email if you have any problems uploading the blinkie!)

Now, onto our next challenge… and it IS a challenge for many of us who love to play with patterns and mix them up! The task: NO PATTERNED PAPERS! You can make your own patterns using stamping, embossing, misting, masking or whatever you’d like, but your papers need to start out totally naked! 😉

Here’s what our talented Odd Girls have done with this one…
(and be sure to click the images to enlarge!)

Kimmy used the brand new Relax Mae, and added texture
with her Cuttlebug embossing folder and lots of fun touchy-feelie elements:
Ann used Round Belly Robot, who’s one of our brand new CREATURES,
with an awesome monochromatic palette, and more embossing:
Marcie went for a sweet, elegant card, using the brand new Magic Mae,
just the right amount of dimension and texture, and her C’bug!
Jennifer brought us this clever little creation using Owlie
how CUTE is his little home in the tree?!
Robin added her texture in a much different way –
look at that awesome stitching! She used Curtsy Kaylee:
Shelly makes Rainy Mae POP with this awesome color combo!
Doesn’t the embossing fit PERFECTLY with the theme of the card?!

Kristy used the brand new Mae Posies and this awesome
houndstooth background using her Silhouette:

and something a little out there from me, Leah, using
Spike, who was our March freebie (no longer available!),
and Tentacles (he makes me laugh!):

And there you have it! A little sampling of some of the new images, and hopefully a whole lot of inspiration for you! Care to play along? Join us, and link up below by Wednesday, May 5th at midnight EST for your chance to win TWO free digis of your choice from! Remember to link back to us on your blog post, and we welcome and ENCOURAGE anybody who uses our images to upload your work to the Some Odd Girl USER GALLERY!

Happy crafting, friends, and stay odd!
