'80s challenge winner, and 3 PATTERNED PAPERS please!

Welcome to another Stash Challenge (#3 already - WOOT!) at Some Odd Girl! Glad you're back to visit, and WOO HOO, we have a great lineup today! First of all, we'd like to thank the FOUR people who played along with our '80s challenge (hee hee) - your projects were WICKEDLY RAD! Of the four, our randomizing friend gave us lucky number 2 as our winner!

Congrats, KarenB!
Your funky "Call Me" card was a fabby
'80s-inspired creation! Check it out, folks:

Love the vintage phone (I certainly had one of those babies, and I STILL think they're better than the junk that's out today!), and the Blondie quote! Karen, please email Kristy at and let her know which two digis you'd like from the shop!

And of course, we have to give shout-outs to our faves from the '80s challenge... quite honestly, EACH of the cards submitted held great appeal - from the Cyndi Lauper reference to Punky Brewster to the Rubik's Cube! Robin, Dora and Amy, please email Kristy at to get our blinkie and wear it proudly on your blogs because YOU are our favorite Oddities! Here are the cards these lovely ladies submitted:


This is the blinkie we hope these crafty gals will soon have blinking away merrily on their blogs:

You could be wearing this happy little badge, too, if you're one of the next Odd Faves!

NOW THEN! (an oxymoron, if I do say so myself!) On to our next Stash Challenge! For the last time, I wanted to see what you could do without any patterned papers...

This time, I'm going to the other extreme, and asking you to combine AT LEAST three different patterned papers, all from DIFFERENT manufacturers!

Our Odd Girls made it look so EASY! Have a gander...

Kimmy used "Rocket", and ROCKED IT!
Check out the awesome "smoke" she created!

Ann made this sweet card, and don't you just love the paper
combo and her coloring?"Mae Posies" looks fabby!

Marcie's got the adorable BG Wags goin' on, and she used the sweet little
"Kitten About" (doesn't he look like he's ready to go outside to play?):

Robin went monochromatic (and NAILED it!), using "Heart Kaylee",
who is no longer available as she was our February freebie!

Jennifer's papers just seem to BEG to be put together - fabby! She used "Sunny Rays" and "FLOATIE MAE" (who will be available at soon!):

Shelly brought the funky with this sweet mix 'n match of bright, bold colors
and the black to make it pop! She used "Mae as Cute Alice":

Leah (me), triggering your sweet tooth, using this month's FREEBIE,
"Cherry Sprinkles" (grab him now, before he's gone!):

And our fabulous artist and head hancho, Kristy, claims she just threw some papers together, but WOO HOO - this card is a masterpiece! "Mae Posies" makes another appearance!

So will we see more than four players for this challenge? Are you diggin' the little sneak peek of the new Mae? Just wait until you see what's in store for June!

Let's see what you can do to create a brand new project using at least THREE different patterned papers, all from different manufacturers. Link up below, post a link back to us on your blog, and you could win two digi stamps of your choice from! You have until Wednesday, June 2nd at midnight EST to enter! Good luck, happy crafting, and most importantly, STAY ODD, friends!

G'Mornin Oddies! We had an even bigger turn out this past challenge and even more of you were sportin your Odd best! This is literally a THRILLING journey we are on here! I lurv all you Odd Girls and hope you are enjoying Kaylee, Mae, Kody and the crew! :) Like I said, larger turn out and the winner of our Stash Challenge: no pattern paper is.....

She brought us this fabby creation, with Robo Heart:

Email me at to claim your winnings! Congrats!

We had some SUPER entries this time around as well so it was super tough to pick our favs! But pick we must...

Kristy's Fav:
Piali with this last minute entry!

Leah's Fav:
Deanne for this yummy textured cupcake creation:

Congrats favs! Email to get the code for your Oddies Fav Blinkie and display it proudly!!! FABULOUS entries all around!!!

Being a child of the 80s, I have vague recollections of teasing my bangs in the 6th grade and wearing black shirt and skirt with splatter paint all over it and loving my leg warmers! The 80s have come back in full swing and what more fun and freedom can we give you for a Style Challenge than that! Heck, you didn't even have to worry about colors coordinating in the 80s! LOL!!! Be that as it may, the Odd Girls found it a toughie. See what you think...

Kimmy dreamt back to the days of Frankie Says Tees
to bring you this card featuring Round Belly

Marcie was just a wee baby in the 80s and channeled that age
and some Molly Ringwald Pretty In Pink featuring Sheepy

Jennifer is spinning records with the big cushy headphones
(that I had!!!) and rockin out with Punky Kaylee

Shelly TOTALLY brought the 80s vibe with the bright colors
that Shopping Kaylee craves!

Robin brings us Fairy Mae channeling Madonna
with Mesh Glove and all!

Ann brings Mae as Alice into the 80s with the day-glo
hair and hot zebra print!

Kristy (me LOL) thinks of hair bands and cassette tapes (pocket rocker anyone?)
when she thinks of the 80s. Rockin Kody is the perfect choice for the task!

Leah also went day-glo and gave Sweet Kaylee a neon green tulle bustle to match her socks (and quoted the Simple Minds song from The Breakfast Club - love those John Hughes films!).

So do you think you can handle it? I KNOW you can!!! Remember, if you use a Some Odd Girl image on your entry it is good for TWO entries! Don't have one? Well what are you waiting for! Head on over and grab our May freebie, Cherry Sprinkles! You have until May 19th at midnight EST to get your NEWLY-CREATED project entered, and you can win 2 FREE IMAGES of your choice!!! We are getting ready and loading new images into the site right now so I may just come back and revise the prize with a "get-it-before-you-can-win-it" digi! Keep an eye out for that!

Let's see what you've got! STAY ODD!
