Challenge 12 - Blue & Flowers

Hello everyone! 

Firstly I would just like to say 'Thank you' for all your fabulous cards/projects for  last month's sketch challenge. 

The winner of the 5 digi images from Prairie Fairy Designs as chosen by random.org is number 16 ...

 Cheryl (shestamps)

Congratulations Cheryl!  Please email me (link in sidebar) with your email address and I will contact Roberta at Prairie Fairy Designs so you can choose your images.

Now for this month's challenge details which is 'Blue' and the optional extra is 'Flowers'.  I was trying to come up with a challenge which is relevant to the month of September without much success, so after searching the internet I found out that September's birthstone is Sapphire and the birth flowers are Forget-me-not, Morning glory and Aster. 

Please remember the optional extra is not compulsory but knowing how us crafters love flowers it shouldn't be too difficult to include this month :o)

This month we are very lucky to be sponsored by Some Odd Girl who are offering one lucky winner the choice of 3 digi images from their store.  Thanks for a great prize!

Here is what Kristy at Some Odd Girl has to say:

Some Odd Girl is the place to find fun and quirky digis that I know you will love! Some Odd Girl was inspired by two great friends who are such dolls! They took one of my pencil drawings and made it into red rubber and that act of generosity spiraled into what you see today. I am a married FTWM of 2 who has a hubby who not only loves me but supports my crafting and my site as my IT guy. What more could a girl want? I am an artist born who started out with pencils then acrylics and now scrapbook and am a cardmaker. I design things that I love and hope you have as much fun with our stamps as we do! Join us on September 21 for the release of our new Tinies line and don't forget about our monthly freebies and SOG Points program.

Here are our cards for your inspiration
