Good morning to you, Odd friends! Is everyone back to school and settling into a new routine again? Is the weather changing in your neck of the woods? September is always such a busy, exciting time, and hopefully you’re all finding yourselves with just a LITTLE more time to craft, especially those of you with young children! πŸ˜€

Let’s cut right to the chase, shall we? Not too many players for our Sketch Challenge last week, but the submissions were beautiful, and we’re thrilled you played along! With 11 , and 9 of them using Some Odd Girl images (that’s a fantastic ratio – WOO HOO!), that means there are 20 entries in the proverbial hat… So the InLinkz randomizer has spoken, and the lucky number is…

#20! Belonging to Lisa Lynn!
Here’s the adorable card Lisa submitted, using
the super cute Head In The Clouds Kaylee:

LOVE the monochromatic color scheme, Lisa, and her blue stripey socks! πŸ˜€ Thanks so much for playing, and congrats! Please email Kristy@SomeOddGirl.com and let her know which 2 images you’d like from the store, and she’ll hook you up!

And with each new challenge and the announcement of our winner comes two more lucky people who are chosen as our faves for the challenge! Congrats to…

Marie, who used Yay Kaylee – the colors are so happy
and the placement of the sentiment is just PERFECT!

and Denise, who used Mae as Alice – such a lovely, elegant card,
with beautiful colors, and that trim is fabulous!

GORGEOUS creations, both of you! Congrats, and please drop a line to Kristy@SomeOddGirl.com and she’ll set you both up with your Some Odd Girl LOYALTY POINTS – thank you so much for playing with us!

So this brings us to our NEXT CHALLENGE! This time, I want to see
at LEAST 3 or more images on your creations!

Bonus entry for those using 3 or more DIFFERENT images, and as always, an additional entry for using Some Odd Girl images, although they are not required. (There is, however, a fabulous FREEBIE up for grabs, so it’s EASY to get a bonus entry!) Let’s check out the work from our fantastic Odd Girls, shall we?

Leah (that’s me!) combined Coffee Mae (plus the table),
Coffee Kaylee, and a mini Mocha for this little scene:

Kristy used Strawberry, Anjou and Gala for this tasty little treat:

Kimmy, who’s also a little on the FRUITY SIDE,
used the same delicious, colorful concoction:

Cassandra spent some time with nature,
and combined Fluffy Love with Sprinkle (twice!):

Robin McK took Tobie (he’ll be available soon!) fishin’ with
his Puppy and made a new friend, Squirrelee:

Piali played with the brand new MONKEES (you can win them
by entering our contest, or wait until their release on November 2nd!)
and combined them with the Table from either Coffee Kaylee or Coffee Mae:

and Sara combined one of the cute MONKEES with two of the
forthcoming Tiny Tias – they’ll be available September 21st!

OOOHHH, and Robin F decided to play along, too! I guess she couldn’t
resist the charm of Gorky and Bulz, with their fabby Rocket!

HELLO, friends! We’re back, still celebrating the brand new release and the welcoming of our newest Odd Girls, and today is CHALLENGE DAY! Leah here, bringing you Stash Challenge #6…

But before we get into the deets of your next “assignment”, we’d like to wish Melissa well and let her know that, even though she was only Odd with us for a short time, she’ll always be Odd, and we’ll be watching her! Unfortunately, Melissa isn’t able to stick with us for a term as an Odd Girl, and while we’re sad to see her go, we do have another new Oddie, and we’ll be introducing you to her today. πŸ™‚

So… we have some business to take care of, don’t we? A winner and our faves! We had a total of 19 entries for our PUNNY CHALLENGE, with 6 of those participants using Some Odd Girl images, bringing the total ballots to 25 – it was SO much fun to see what you did with the challenge! It wasn’t always clear where the puns were in the submissions, but we enjoyed seeing them and we’re glad you all played along!

The winner of the PUNNY CHALLENGE is STEPHANIE (Crafty Teacher) for this fun card
(we all agree that the sentiment would go great with our “Toasted and Toastie” images!):

Stephanie, please send a message indicating your two favorite images from SomeOddGirl.com to Kristy@SomeOddGirl.com and she’ll gladly send your downloads to you! CONGRATULATIONS!

And, as always, we have a couple of faves to share – these players have earned themselves some Some Odd Girl loyalty points, to eventually go toward freebies from the store (once they’ve earned enough!)…

Check out this TOTALLY appropriate (and hilarious!) card from Scrappy
(we all know about the excitement of sending the kids back to school when summer ends!):

And this sweet little SCRAPPY creation from Christy
(see, Some Odd Girl images are great for more than just cards!):

Ladies, please send a little note to Kristy@SomeOddGirl.com so she can hook you up properly! Congrats, and thank you both!

NOW, let’s throw a new challenge atcha, and hope that this new release and these fun projects will inspire you to create! For this Stash Challenge (#6 already!), I wanna see….
RIBBONS AND RUBONS!
You can do it just like our Odd Girls have done it…

Kimmy‘s got this hot little number, using “Inchie“!
Love that scrunchy ribbon flower!

Leah couldn’t wait to play with “Tweet” and made nice
with her rubons (the faux stitching made her LIKE them again!):

Cassandra used “Balloon Kaylee” and some of the
most GORGEOUS colours for this fabby card:

Robin McK also used “Balloon Kaylee” for her
card, and YUMMY neutrals!
Piali had some fabby shabby chic fun with the adorable new “Kissy Mae“:

Sara also chose “Kissy Mae” for her happy and heartwarming beauty:
Kristy used “Buzzy” for this spritzy blingy fun little numbah!

And please give a warm, crafty welcome to our NEWEST Odd Girl, Tanya!
She gave us this little gem using “Fluffy Love“:

How’s about a little introduction to our new Odd Girl? Here’s the scoop on Tanya:

I have been crafting my whole life and obsessively scrapping since my youngest son was born five years ago. I live in Northern California with my amazing hubby of nearly 13 years, our four wonderful kiddos, dog and cat. I am a stay at home mom who also records voiceovers, often from my home studio, which doubles as my scrapbook space. I love creating -whether it’s layouts, cards, cakes or Halloween costumes. I especially love layering ribbon & recycling in my projects. I am relatively new to digital stamping but fell in LOVE (at first site) with Some Odd Girl’s adorable images! I am thrilled to be on the Design Team!!! Thank you, Kristy!!

And that, dear friends, is your cue to go make stuff! Remember that you don’t have to use Some Odd Girl images on your projects, but if you do (and there’s always a FREEBIE for the taking!), you’ll get TWO entries into the challenge. This time, there are two images of your choice up for grabs from SomeOddGirl.com! Link up your NEWLY-CREATED beauties below, be sure to link back to us on your post, and do it by Wednesday, August 25 at midnight EST for your chance to win!
