Bright and Blinding Challenge

Congrats to our winner and favs from the White/Kraft with Pops of Color Challenge! You can see them in yesterday's post.

Before we get to today's challenge I want to make sure everyone knows, BE BACK HERE MONDAY AT 9AM FOR SNEAKS WEEK FOR OUR JULY 11TH CLEAR STAMP RELEASE! Excited? Me too! We will be going to the gala in style! Giveaways, fun, lots of inspiration from the Odd Girls and a blog hop at the end of the week to top it off like fireworks! You won't want to miss it! I've been posting little teases on our Facebook page if you want to get a headstart of the party :)


Today's challenge is going to make you want your sunglasses. So you go get them, I'll wait...





Properly spectacled? The Challenge is BRIGHT and BLINDING COLORS. We want to see creations that make you want to keep on your shades just to peer at the over the top retina searing colors you use! Pastels are not allowed!  What a perfect challenge for the bright fun of summer! With all the beachy and summery things to make out there you should have no problem making us throw up our hands to shade our eyes :)

Here's how the Odd Girls did...

Our Odd Guest Keren used Beachy Tia

Kristy used Beach Babe Kaylee

Robin used Octee

I warned you that you might need some dark eye wear ;) So let's see if you can blind us with not only your colors but your creativity! This challenge runs thru July 12th, when the linky closes the challenge is over. Entries that use a Some Odd Girl image (digi or stamp) will get 2 entries into the draw! Twice the chance of winning! All entries must be new for this challenge, no back linking, we do check, and your entry post must be linked to this blog ( and linked to a specific post (not a generic blog link) or sweet InLinkz will not let you link up until you do. Entries in the comments will not be counted. Please read the rules/challenge well, as we've been having some issues with entries meeting the requirements.

Now that you've scrolled this far, you can take the shades of and think about your entry :) 

Stay Odd!

White/Kraft and Color Pops Challenge WINNERS!

ACK! I totally got lost on what day it was! CRIZZAP! My apologies for the lateness of this post! For those of you behind me on time, not so late then ;)

Ok! We had plenty of fun entries into this challenge and so many of you took it in hand and RAN with it! Love that! Even though that makes it tougher for me to pick favs, its one I'm willing to take on :) Our Mr. has graciously picked us a winner for the challenge and it is...

CARLEY! Congrats Carlie! Your card with our Monkey Ollie is just too frickin cute! Email me to collect your goodies! :)

Next our two favs went in opposite directions on the white vs kraft choice but they both came up with super cute cards! Our first fav, in no particular order, made the choice of kraft and put together a card our own Miss Leah probably swooned over since she is agog over all things Orange! Melissa did such an amazing job with her coloring as well!

Our second fav picked white and made the cutest boys card complete with planes and clouds, I know my Dude with LOVE to get it for his birthday. Not to mention Maria knows you can't go wrong with Orange and Teal as your color combo ;)

Congrats to both our favs! Favs please email me for your exclusive Fav's Blinkie to proudly display on your blog! :)

Our big thanks to EVERYONE who played along last week! We heart you all! Join us tomorrow for a challenge you will definitely need your sunglasses for!

Before you go... SNEAKS WEEK is all next week right here! We are having our next Clear Stamp release on July 11th and will be showing them to you in style with fun, giveaways and a blog hop. Next week, starting July 4th! See ya there!

Summer Mae!

Check out what our Odd Girls did with this new beauty! :)

And like her best friend Tobie, this little girlie loves to cool off with a tasty treat! HELLOOOOOO, Ice Cream Tia!

Summer Sneaks Week Day 2

Welcome back! Are you feeling summery? Stuck in the middle of a heatwave? Do you have your fancy drink with a tiny umbrella in it? It's only 9am here, so I'm pretending my Pepsi Max is fancy :) YOU, however, might be enjoying a different kind of fancy drink! ;) (And we might be a smidgen jealous!)

We have some fabulous, and slightly DIFFERENT sneaks for you today! We told you we'd have lots of summery fun to share this week, but today, there's no Kaylee or Mae, Kody or Tobie or Tia... Today, we feature our new friends who live in the sea! :)

You might get stuck on our new friend, Octee!

Our FB winner Melissa
showed him the love!

And so did our Odd Girl

thought Octee would look cute on a tag (he does, doesn't he?!)

And Octee needed an underwater buddy, so meet our fish friend, Goldie!

Our June Guest Odd Girl Patricia joins us with this cute, punny card!

gave Goldie a twin!

has Goldie and her Mini-Me swimming through a coral reef!

and YOU could be the next to create a little underwater scene using one of these new images! Just leave a comment on today's post and let us know what you think about the new additions, and we'll announce our winners next week when this digi-release goes LIVE at!
