NEW Some Odd Girl challenge, and a new freebie!

okay, get your butts on over to Some Odd Girl to grab the new July freebie. just DO IT! if you thought Kaylee and Mae and Kody were adorable, just WAIT until you see who's there!

now. new challenge! our SHIMMER challenge was a huge hit, and the entries we received were FAN-FLIPPIN'-TASTIC! so exciting to see so many people enjoying the Some Odd Girl images (and, undoubtedly, falling in love with 'em, just like the rest of us!). 35 entries this time - that's phenomenal! wonder if we'll top that for TODAY'S CHALLENGE.....

we want to see a SHAPED CARD! squares and rectangles are, indeed, shapes, but we're talking something else, silly wabbits. circles, ovals, or anything outside-of-the-box... how's this for an example?

(i call this my "happy little tree", 'a la Bob Ross!)

and a close up, 'cuz these guys are just too sweet to admire from a distance!

i used "Tree" from an older release, "Cherriez" comes from the brand new release from this past TUESDAY... here's the whole batch:

and you can get 'em at - the beauty of our challenges is that if you use a Some Odd Girl image, you get two entries for the challenge. AND the fact that there's always a freebie available, it makes it that much easier for you to take advantage of this! (then we wait to see if you get hooked, and NEED MORE!)

for this challenge, you could win the limited edition "Hula Kaylee"... BEHOLD:

ANNNND, the winner also gets to choose one image from the store! you wanna play along? show us whatcha got HERE, and we can't wait to see your shaped cards! you have until Wednesday, July 14th at midnight EST to play along.

i embossed my tree's trunk and branches with the new Tim Holtz woodgrain Sizzix folder (yum!), and the leaves with my swirls Cuttlebug folder.

entering this card for the following:
The Crafty Pad - EMBOSSING
