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 Kristy@SomeOddGirl.com 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 Kristy@SomeOddGirl.com 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 SomeOddGirl.com! 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!

Welcome back! Sorry about the no show yesterday Oddies! We had a crazy lightning storm Monday night and had a strike super close (so close I heard the crackle before the boom!) and it fried our DSL modem. SO thanks to verizon, UPS and 68 minutes on the phone today I am back on the internet! YAY!

Today is the last day to get in on our first challenge so if you are workin with it you’ll have to get it in gear 🙂 but more importantly today…

Let me introduce you to Chrissy!

I came across Chrissy on 2peas and searched out her blog and gently “prodded” her to enter our DT call. Her coloring skills are amazing and I could see how comfy she was with digis that I couldn’t not push her LOL. I’m so glad she took me up on it and I’m thrilled to have her!

I’m 33 years old. I live in PA, and married with a 3 year old daughter. I’ve been in the scrapbooking hobby for quite some time, 9+ years. I was mostly into scrapbooking, but just recently decided to switch to cardmaking/coloring. When I was scrapbooking, I was also a stamp designer for various scrapbooking kit clubs, and was also a page designer for 5-7 design teams.

Due to some personal decisions I’ve decided to go purely cardmaking and coloring. I’ve been coloring for about 2-3 months. I’ve always loved coloring as a kid and now I guess I’m rediscovering it at another level and it has turned into a passion of mine. I’m fairly new at this hobby, but I feel like a natural at this.

My style…I like to color whimsical images most of all. I love to color people/kids. Some of the style I like you can look at my creations on my blog. As you can see on my blog, I pretty much color. I don’t do elaborate cards and projects. I think the “coloring” part takes up most of my time, and I’m done after that. LOL. I make the cards fairly simple, so I can go on to coloring my next image! 🙂

 She wowed me with March’s Freebie

If you didn’t get Spike I bet after this I bet you wish you had! Chrissy has answered our Odd Questions too!

What makes you Odd? I love ladybugs stamps, but I’m really scared of them in real life.
If you were a thumbtack where would you stick yourself? I would stick myself in my pinky finger so I can remember ‘to-do’ things in my list. I’m very forgetful.

What ONE crafty item do you most identify with and why? My Copic collection. I’ve done many crafty things, but Copic coloring is my true love (besides my cutie hubby)

5 Random Facts about you! I love online window (uh monitor) shopping. I love air fresheners, I have one in every room. I loathe cooking. I love peanut butter, my hubby is allergic to it. It takes me hours to shop, I can never make up my mind.

If you had to choose between being colour blind or losing your sense of taste for the rest of your life, which would you choose? Why? Losing my sense of taste. Colors to me is window to the imagination. And how would I color with Copics if I can’t see the colors? That would be really tough. Taste….. I need to lose weight, so who needs tastes anyway, right??

What fictional character is most like you? Definitely Lucy from Snoopy. I pick on people…. lol .

Our first for losing their taste I think!  My thought too and for the same reason HA! Well Chrissy has a special giveaway up on her blog for a get it before you can buy it image!

This is Mae as Alice! You can’t get this digi until April 20 UNLESS you are the winner over at Chrissy’s Blog! You HAVE to go thru her blog and look at all the great inspiration you can find! Not only does she have wonderful cards and amazing skills but she has some great links for anyone who is into copics or prism markers. I have alot of readin to do!

Stop on by tomorrow for our second Challenge that I know you’ll love! Stay Odd!
