Some Odd Girl and Operation Write Home BONUS CHALLENGE!

i'm here, getting my fellas off to school (hubbin started back today and The Son goes back monday), preparing for my new job to start october 1st, taking little day trips and trying to squeeze every last drop out of summer before it's gone for another year, i'm also reeling from all the excitement going on with the crafty stuff!

today, something BIG is going on at Some Odd Girl! we have teamed up with Operation Write Home for a special challenge, and you can WIN STUFF while supporting the troops - is that not awesome? (yes, it is - rhetorical question, people!) :)

we're encouraging you to send cards to the Operation Write Home rep nearest you so they can get loads of them boxed up and shipped to the troops, because they love sending handmade cards to their loved ones, and their loved ones CERTAINLY love receiving them! GO HERE to get the scoop on Operation Write Home and then GO HERE to see what we're doing in conjunction with them.

since their biggest card need is BIRTHDAYS, our Oddest Girl, Kristy, has whipped up something extra-special for the occasion, and, well, just take a look:

is Birthday Tia not the cutest little thing you ever did see? (another rhetorical one there, folks - no need to answer!) we hope she'll be a big hit when the recipients of these OWH cards open their mail!

you want to send a Birthday Tia card to the troops? GO HERE!
oh, and do you wanna win some of THESE?

it's CUTE OVERLOAD at Some Odd Girl! these Tinies are being released on September 21st, but YOU could win 4 of your faves from this series by playing along! this is a much shorter challenge, so be sure to read all the deets HERE, and let's get some boxes of LOVE in the mail for Operation Write Home! remember, absolutely NO GLITTER! (it's a safety hazard for our troops!)

playing along with the challenges at:
C.R.A.F.T. - colored pencils! (right up my alley - i ONLY use Prismacolor pencils!)
Papertake - photo inspiration (loved the blend of colours!)

Pile It On - they're co-sponsoring the OWH challenge!
Stamp Something - stripes and spots (stripes on the journaling tag, spots on the tag and the party hat, etc)

and before i mosey along, a quick reminder that MY CANDY is still running, and i have updated the list of treats - help spread the word and you could win it all! :)
