Hello, hello, hello! It’s that time of the week again Peeps! If you’re reading this in the UK, go on, tell me, who forgot to put their clocks back this weekend?! ;)

This month, Cupcake Madness is being sponsored by Some Odd Girl!

Some Odd Girl

Some Odd Girl is the place to find fun and quirky images that we know you will love! Some Odd Girl was inspired by two great friends who are such dolls! They took one of Kristy Dalman’s (SOG owner) pencil drawings and made it into red rubber and that act of generosity spiraled into what you see today. Kristy is a married FTWM of 2 who has a hubby who not only loves her deeply but supports Kristy’s crafting and her site as the IT guy. What more could a girl want? Kristy is an artist born who started out with pencils then acrylics and now scrapbooks and is a card maker. Kristy design things that she loves and hopes you have as much fun with her stamps as we do! Some Odd Girl are delighted to be sponsoring Cupcake Craft Challenge this month. Please don't forget about our monthly freebies and SOG Points program, which you can check out on the Some Odd Girl main site.

Some Odd Girl are offering one lucky winner, chosen at random, a $9 Gift Voucher to spend in store!

All you need to do to be in with a chance of winning some of these funky images is to enter at least two different Cupcake Challenges throughout November. That’s it! So what are you waiting for…?!


The Faberoony Design Team have provided some amazing inspiration.... if you want to find out how they made their cards then click on their name to go directly to their individual blogs.
