Some News and a Sketch Challenge at Some Odd Girl!

Grrrr... is anyone else having problems with Blogger not posting scheduled posts lately?  What a pain!

Hello!  Good evening!  I've got news... I'm so excited!  I've been holding this in for a while, but...  I'm now officially an Odd Girl!!!    I'm taking the place of Iwona who unfortunately had to step down because of other (very exciting) commitments.. so I've got huge shoes to fill!  I'm sure Iwona won't be far away from the land of SOG though!  I must admit I'm very nervous being in the company of such amazing colourists!  Do head over to SOG and check out their awesomeness!

So, since it's the first of May, there is a new challenge starting at Some Odd Girl and it's my favourite type of challenge... a sketch challenge!

Here's the sketch:



















And here's my first official SOG card using Warm Wishes Tia who will be available in the shop again in September:







































































Isn't she adorable?!  The papers I used are from October Afternoon and the ribbon is from The Ribbon Girl.  I stamped the sentiment onto an October Afternoon sticker.  The extra wee text sticker are from October Afternoon as well.  The snowflakes I stamped in red on the right hand side come with Tia.

Here's a close up:
























And here are the copics I used:



















I hope you can join us this month!  You've got until the end of the month to get your creation in, so dig our your SOG digis or stamps and get stamping!

Ciao!
