Ever want to combine your love of crafting with a want to do good things for others? Then we have a challenge for you! For today’s special challenge Some Odd Girl is teaming up with Operation Write Home to help celebrate their Birthday! Want to learn more about Operation Write Home? Check out this link.

The challenge today is simple! We want to see BIRTHDAY THEME CARDS! Birthdays are OWH’s biggest need for cards and this special challenge is going to aim to help them out. We are asking for each of you to not only show us your Birthday Cards following the OWH Guidelines (very important!) but we want to see an addressed envelope to your closet OWH shipper. If we don’t see both of these things in your piccy your entry won’t count. We would also like to ask anyone who enters to send their card on off to OWH so they can continue to help US Troops keep in touch with their loved ones.

SO, here is your inspiration from our Odd Girls today…

Robin F used Tobie and Buddy on this fun boys card
Yvonne used a special treat, Birthday Tia on her card
Marcie also used cutie Birthday Tia on her pixielicous card
Kristy used Tiny Tia Bow for her Birthday treat
Cassandra also used super cute Birthday Tia!
Tanya also used the cutie Birthday Tia!
Leah used that special Birthday Tia too! (she hopes to
squeeze in a bunch of cards for the troops!)
Piali, who is also a OWH regular, used special Birthday Tia on her card
We keep saying that this challenge is special and it definitely is! But to go with special challenge we have special prizes! Have you seen this…
This is our FULL Tinies Release!
The Tinies are coming on the scene Tuesday Sept 21, but the winner of this challenge will get their pick of 4 of these cuties! Sure, after Tuesday you can go buy’em but you can win some here by doing something good for the Troops! So do you think can you follow these quickie rules:
1) Birthday Theme
2) Follow the OWH Guidelines
3) Must show your addressed envie in your card piccy

We hope so! Each qualifying entry gets you one ticket in the hat, use a Some Odd Girl digi and you get two! This challenge is also a lil different in that it has a shorter deadline: because of mailing, entries are due by Sept 22 at midnight EST. And lastly, I bet you keep wondering why I keep mentioning that special Birthday Tia… well you’ll have to go to the OWH Blog to find out! (wink, wink, nudge, nudge!)
Stay Odd and thank you for supporting OWH and the Troops!

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! 😀

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! 😀 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!

There you have it! There is so much you can do by combining multiple images, and we can’t wait to see your gorgeous projects! Enter by linking up your NEWLY CREATED PROJECTS no later than Wednesday, September 22nd at midnight EST, and be sure to link back to our blog for your chance to win two free digis of your choice from SomeOddGirl.com! It just so happens that our next release will be September 21st, so you’ll have a whole lot more CUTE to choose from if you’re the lucky winnah! Happy craftin’!
