SOME ODD GIRL day two of summer sneaks!

this was a bit of a take off from my usual style these days, but i had SO much flippin' fun making this card, and i couldn't wait for today's sneak!

at the Some Odd Girl challenge blog, we're sharing sneaks and big news with you ALL WEEK! there's a brand new digi release coming out next Tuesday, and yesterday you got to see Beachy Tia and Beach Babe Kaylee... i'm SURE that got you a little excited about summer, and about the rest of the release! well today, we're going for a dive!

heeeeeeeeeere's GOLDIE!


i flipped through some papers and couldn't believe my luck when THIS beauty from the Hippie Chic stack popped out at me - it was PERFECT! (thank you, DCWV!) since i didn't want to add too much that might take away from the paper, i decided on my sentiment, and took out my Martha punch (couldn't seem to find it online anywhere, so i think they've retired this one) and made me some CORAL! glued 'em all down and stickled 'em up for this effect:




and of course, Goldie's coloured with my beloved Prismacolor pencils - maybe one day i'll upgrade to Copics, but not as long as i'm still in LURRRRRRVE! :)



so Goldie is on parade today at the Some Odd Girl challenge blog, along with another little underwater friend! CLICK HERE to see more, and leave a comment over there to win one of today's featured sneaks! :) remember, they'll be in the store next week, so you don't have to wait long before you can nab 'em and play, too!

i'm playing along today with the lovely folks at...

Quirky Crafts Challenges - their theme is Under The Sea!
Crafts and Me - "Punch it Out!" (and i punched a TON of those little branches!)
and PaperPlay Challenges - they've chosen "Summer Citrus Splash" this week, so i went for the orange, pink grapefruit and lime (yum!)

and off to work i go! enjoy the day, darlings! xo
