Fabby news! I'm April's GD for the Some Odd Girl challenge blog!

(Please scroll down for my Quixotic Paperie and By LoRi Designs DT cards)

I've been bursting to share this for aaaages!  I was very chuffed to be chosen as the Some Odd Girl's April guest designer!  I love playing with these beauties!  This challenge is to create a clean and simple card - not the easiest style for me!!  But here is my effort...


I used Roller Mae - I can feel the breeze in my hair just looking at her!  And look, no design papers again!  Instead, I used am embossing folder on white wash co-ordination cardstock, a white gel pen for the faux stitching and some simple embellishing - et voila!

I hope you get a chance to play along - you don't need a SOG image but if you do use one for the challenge, you get 2 chances to win!  

Lastly, just to let you know that all of next week we will be having sneak peeks of the new release due out on 19 April - I've been playing with some of the new images so I can confidently say that you are going to LOVE them!

That's it from me for now - thanks for visiting!!

Forgive me for being lazy tonight as I need to get on with things but I will comment on all 3 cards together.
All 3 are fab cards with super images and layouts. I think you have done very well with the CAS card and love the colourful LoRi design card, the boy is as you say super cool.

Congrats on the GD, well done.
