Hello there, Odd friends! Leah here, TOTALLY excited about today’s post for a few different reasons. First, there’s THESE GUYS:

They are ALL available NOW at SomeOddGirl.com – aren’t they absolutely FANTASTIC?! Let me tell you, we Odd Girls are having LOADS of fun playing with them! Get ’em by clicking HERE… OH! And we can’t forget about the brand new FREEBIE for October! (grab him while you can!)

Second, there’s still time for you to get in on our MONKEE contest! We have lots of fun suggestions for names already, but if you haven’t submitted yours, we want to hear from you! CLICK HERE to read the contest deets, and to see what flippin’ AMAZING prizes are up for grabs!

Third, I have a brand new challenge for you today, and it’s just different enough that I know the rest of the team had fun playing with it, and I hope you will too….

But FOURTH, I have a winner and some favorites to announce! You kids knocked the Monochromatic challenge right the heck outta the ballpark! Gorgeous creations, and thank you all for joining us! Of 34 entries in total (WOO HOO!), 13 projects featured Some Odd Girl images, which brought our total “in the hat” to 47, and we couldn’t be more pleased with such a great number! Thanks for the support and for enjoying the Some Odd Girl images! 😀

We’d like to toss a big ol’ CONGRATS out to number 16, which, according to our system, belongs to VERA YATES! Here’s the lovely monochromatic card Vera shared with us:

GO, VERA! Thanks for playing along, and congratulations! Please send Kristy an email at Kristy@SomeOddGirl.com and she’ll let you know how to get your two free digis from the store! Can’t wait to see what you’ll do with your choices!

And, because we have some LOYALTY POINTS to toss around, we’ve also got a couple of favorite projects to share… Congrats goes to…

CORRY for this gorgeous and unique card featuring both Mermaid Kaylee and MerMae:

and to Caz, who TOTALLY rocked the black and white combo
(love that hair) using Head In The Clouds Kaylee:

Well done, you Oddies! Please send a quick note to Kristy@SomeOddGirl.com and she’ll apply your Loyalty Points to your accounts!

OKAY! Onwards! My challenge for you this time around is…..

FABRIC!

I want to see fabric on your creations! The usual ribbon/twine/lace/yarn/felt shapes do NOT apply, but you can choose to make your own embellishments out of fabric if you like. Tear up an old towel or apron or shirt or even a SOCK, and show me whatcha got! 😀

Wanna see how we Odd Girls have done it up all good-like? Take a look…

Well good morning fellow Oddsters….this is Word Girl Kimmy with my first ever challenge for you all. But before I can get all excited about it and about the Tiny release we just had two days back, let’s have a look at the overall winner for our Multiple Images challenge.
Man, were those entries fantastic or what? We are just so happy that Random.org does all the “dirty” work for us by choosing a winner. With so many gorgeous cards to choose from we wouldn’t know where to start. But I ramble.

We have had 14 entries out of which 5 used
Some Odd Girl images, which gave us 19 entries into our virtual hat *shuffle-shuffle-shake-shake* and our winner for this fortnight is:

Number 3 which belongs to Lisa Haines
Congratulations to you!
We just love the frightened look on the kitty’s face with those big google eyes 🙂

Please email Kristy{at}SomeOddGirl{dot}com and let her know which 2 images you’d like from the store, and she will make sure you get to play with digi delights very shortly!

And then of course, each challenge produces two further lucky Oddies who will be awarded
Some Odd Girl Loyalty points, just because we loved their projects so much.

Kellie only recently discovered SOG images
but BOY did she rock them on this fantastic card

And Barbara went for cute and gloomy with this
sweet textured creation:

Ladies, please email Kristy at the above address so she can set you up.

I am sure you are getting all twitchy about the new challenge now, right? Okay then – but before I go into more detail, let’s have a quick look again at the latest release of the much anticipated TINIES *swoon*



You may remember that earlier this year, the July Freebie Tina Tia just rocketed to the top of our list with a total of 1,306 downloads in 30 days (that is 43.53 per day, folks!), followed by Tiny Tobie and his dog with 1,002 downloads in August.Well, that told us that you really, really – like, REALLY love the Tinies so Kristy got cracking to present you with this fabulous release of Tinies.

And here is your mission should you choose to accept it.



Create a monochromatic card, which extends to any digital images you may use (like our September Freebie Bussie, which you can download HERE). If you use any people or animal images, you are allowed to use a different colour for skin and eye colour but the rest of the image should be based on the overall colour scheme of your card. Not sure what to make of the term monochromatic? Click HERE to get the skinny.

Now check out our Team Style and how they rocked the monochromatic Tinies



Kristy made use of the ever so cute Tiny Tia Bow in wonderful pale blue hues


Yvonne also ran with a blue colour scheme but chose Daisy Tia for her fun card


Robin F shows us that black can be cheerful with her
perfect monochromatic card using Bu’Fly Tia and friend

Marcie
used the same image and showcases a tasty card in lime colour


Leah got hold of Daisy Tia and only gone and created a whole scenery
to go with the image. Isn’t it wonderful – especially the shading of the colours?


Tanya held up the card for the boys though and gave Fishin’ Toby an outing
on her scrummy black’n’grey card. Look at his eyes…you could get lost in them!

And then there is me, Kimmy, who had to be the ODD one out (pun intended)
by using Cloud Buddies, who are right now available in the BIG 99 cent Sale!!!

So, are you gonna play along with us this fortnight? We cannot wait to see what you all create and hopefully share with us. Enter by directly linking up your NEWLY CREATED PROJECTS no later than Wednesday, October 6th 2010 at midnight EST, and be sure to link back to our blog for your chance to win two free digis of your choice from SomeOddGirl.com! As you know, you get one entry in the (virtual) hat for each card you enter and another entry if you use one of our images.

Good luck and enjoy!
