i've been a BAD blogger, but i've gotten stuff done!

new DOLLIES challenges! the Trifecta has (almost) been posted for the week, and we can't WAIT to see what you're going to do with it!

first, Monday's Color Challenge.
BROWN, YELLOW, WHITE, ROYAL BLUE:


and my very simplistic project (making lots of simpler cards for a craft fair, as i don't think most crafty little old ladies in my area will be keen on my usual creations!):

CLICK HERE to go to the challenge, and play along for a brand new prize pack for June - i have yet to photograph my goodies, but i promise not to disappoint! you have until SUNDAY NIGHT at midnight, EST, to get in on this... and don't forget that you can combine it with this week's ELEMENTS CHALLENGE (coming soon!) and this week's SKETCH CHALLENGE for a complete TRIFECTA, and a shot at all THREE of the Dollies prize packs for the month. :)

here's the sketch, revealed TODAY!

and my take on it (a pic i've been meaning to scrap for AGES!):



FYI - the cool thing about the ampersand is that the name of the coffeehouse is, actually, "SP@T" - i think it was one of the very first internet cafes in Buffalo (if not the first), and it's been a regular hangout for me and my peeps since forever ago (usually pre- or post- club night). i miss it!

the paper is a Prima Paintable that i dolled up with my Twinkling H20s and a bit of Prismacolor pencil to make the blue more greyish.

anywho. that's the Dollies stuff (and, like i said, Elements Challenge coming soon!), and there's also Some Odd Girl stuff going on! this weekend is HUGE! we're having a BLOG HOP from Saturday to Sunday, and we're sponsoring challenges in the SNR group on Saturday as well - fabby stuff brought to you by our Odd Girls, Kimmy and Marcie! you could win the WHOLE new release (7 images), that will be available on TUESDAY! and lemme tell ya, they're HOT! (i'll be showing you some sneakies soon, so stay tuned!) HOWEVER... if you wanna win this:

plus one other digi of your choice, you should play along with our SKETCH CHALLENGE at the Some Odd Girl blog! the sketch is simple and super versatile, and if you use a Some Odd Girl image, you get a BONUS entry (and since there's a freebie every month, there's no excuse, right?!) :) this month's freebie has been downloaded nearly 400 times already - Kody's a popular dude!

okay, lots MORE to post, including a new challenge at Envious! i'm going to get to that in a few minutes (but feel free to CLICK HERE to see it for yourself if you're anxious to get started!), and i have a whack of cards to share for OTHER challenges, too! told you i've been busy getting ready for the craft fair! :) back soon, chickens! xo

  1. Ok, I'll bite - I will do to the Trifecta this month. Love the colour combo and the sketch, so now I need the elements...

    I had to lullz (HA!) at the lil ole ladies maybe not being too impressed with your usual cards...I think you should sneak one or two of them in there, you may be surprised :)

    Felling a little Peter Pan today, so your card made me smile and I totally love the layout!
