feelin' ODD?

we have a brand new challenge for you at Some Odd Girl! it went up yesterday, but i was away all day for my second interview (OOOHHH!) and then taking The Son to get his permit - he turned 17 on tuesday, and i think i'm about ready to crawl into the closet and HIDE! 17! eep!

well there's always a lot going on in this household... hubbin and i have a show tomorrow at an outdoor festival thingy, and apparently they're having a TV crew there, so it should be interesting (and positively nerve-wracking!). and our BIG show is next thursday night - really excited about that, except that i'm terribly anxious about all the new material as hubbin has this tendency to pick songs i don't know, and i can't grab the cd out of his collection to give it a listen as he's got a nasty case of OCD. yeah, that's not fun to live with on a day-to-day basis! anywho, i'm sure it will go splendidly, but there's LOTS going on, and i'm excited and nervous and i have a TON of crafting to do, but no time to do it!

so let's get to the challenge, shall we? this time i'm asking for RIBBONS AND RUBONS! you can win two free digis of your choice from, and lemme tell ya, my Holmes keeps releasing all these AMAZING images, it's going to be VERY difficult to choose just two!

so... Ribbons and Rubons it it! here's my card, using the brand new "Tweetie" from tuesday's big release:

this Kaylee image is one of my absolute faves to date(and i envy this gal's wardrobe, lemme tell ya!)! the white faux-stitch is Heidi Grace rubon, and the black swirlies in the striped panel and on the frame is Basic Grey rubon, and i'm shocked to say that i absolutely LOVED working with these! i'm trying so hard to use up old stash, and i thought this challenge was a good way to force me to step out of my comfort zone. i am NOT a rubon person, but i think we're rekindling our friendship. :) the stripey paper is Sass, and the frame is K & Company paper... the white lacy trim was sent to me by the very lovely CINDYPANTS, and those cute little floral "buttons" are from my dearest KELLIEBEAN! thank you, ladies! i heart you both!

okay, so CLICK HERE to play along with this Ribbons and Rubons challenge, and to see what our Odd Girls have done with this combination. we have a whole new team in place, including one BRAND NEW ODD GIRL, so do drop by and welcome them (and be inspired by their gorgeous creations!)...

this card plays along with:
Creative Card Crew's "Cute and Girlie" challenge
Cupcake Challenges - they want LACE!
Papertake Weekly's "Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue"
(the old is the K & Co. paper - i think it may have been the very first designer stack i bought! - the new is the "Tweetie" image, the borrowed is the Prismacolor pencils, as it was before i bought my own set, and the blue is the bird!)

so there that is....
did you know that tomorrow is DIGI DAY at SNR? Some Odd Girl has lots of awesome stuff goin' down, and you won't want to miss it! i'm one of several Odd Girls hosting challenges, there are games, and tons of ways to win free digis from! join us!
