New digi releases from Some Odd Girl!

It's Tuesday and that means it's digi day at Some Odd Girl. I am so excited to be posting this, these new images are ADORABLE. I know they will appeal to a lot of you crafty ladies out there!!!

First up is - PHONE CALL MAE, isn't she too adorable chatting up a  storm with her BFF!! This image is perfect to use on a card for a friend who is far away! She really is perfect to let someone know you would LOVE to chat to them!

I tried to make this card super girly!! Mae is such a purdy girl isn't she!?!

Next up is - JOGGER MAE! Mae has decided she has spent too much time talking on the phone, and she needs to get active!! I LOVE LOVE LOVE this image. I am a jogger myself (or at least I try to be:), so this new image totally "speaks" to me and my fitness conscious self!!

For this card I tried to go with more a sporty athletic vibe! The circle behind Mae's head reminds me of the sun rising, Mae likes to exercise early :) Both the sentiments I used were printed out on the computer.

So what do you think?!? Aren't they just the nicest images?!? I LURVE them lots!! If you are a SOME ODD GIRL fan, why not join our Ning Community (Some Odd World), it is so much fun!!

If you are interested in dashing off to buy either of these gorgeous images, head HERE!!

I hope you have enjoyed your time here at my blog, it was so nice that you visited!! :)

Challenge no. 19 - Patchwork Effect at SCRAP AFRICA!!

Hi ladies, I am back to share the latest fun challenge at SCRAP AFRICA. I really loved working on this challenge, and am so happy with the special layout I ended up with. My middle son, Bryce, helped me with the weaving of my different patterened papers to get this patchwork effect!!

These photos were taken in December last year. My dear Gran passed away in May this year, and I think of her every single day!!

This is the photo we were given to work with as inspiration, as a quilter I LOVE LOVE LOVE this photo!!!

There are 2 fabby prizes up for grabs, this first one I am particularily excited about. I MUST go and do some shopping here soon!!

Please take the time to stop by the SCRAP AFRICA blog for more inspiration, as well a more deets on another prize Evgenia is sponsoring!!

Can't wait to see what you create for this fun challenge!!!

A sneak peak of the new Cut Files at Some Odd Girl

Hi ladies, just a quick early morning post to share the card I made using the new Rectangle Cut File, 
available soon from Some Odd Girl here:

Here is the card I created using one of the rectangle files, I totally LOVE how this one turned out!!!!

I popped the rectangle background on some adhesive foam, to give it some lift, and it really gives a great dimension to the card. I used the super super cute "Tweet Kaylee", she was a joy to colour, you can find her here

I used two of Kristy's awesome tutorials on the colouring of this card. Her yellow shading tutorial which can be found HERE and the hair colouring tutorial which can be found HERE!

SOME ODD GIRL has an amazing special running until the end of today, do yourself a favor and go and check it out.....like now!! :) HERE is the link to the shop!! Click on the DIGITAL STAMPS heading on the left hand side for all the awesome digis up for sale!!

Hope you all have a wonderful happy weekend xxxx
