Welcome to November ODD-friends….only one more month to go before we start cleaning the chimney’s, right? Ok ok – let’s not get too carried away so soon and let’s reminisce a little bit about Halloween and the SUPERB entries we have received for our {{ last challenge }}. They were spooktacular!

You all rocked the colour challenge and created 39 entries for our virtual hat. The random generator decided on our overall winner is:

Are you all ready for the new challenge? Good, because we have a cracking one for you:

For our first challenge in November we would like to see everyone getting creative with their digis by using them to create a background. You can either just use one of the sentiments over and over again, or repeat an image on a piece of plain cardstock (or paper).
Used Chilly Penguin (from our upcoming release) to create the background AND made him the focal point as well.
How clever to use the Hey Cupcake sentiments as a background to really make your message stand out.
How very Andy Warhol to use the smaller images printed onto different coloured pieces of paper. Love the combination of School Girl Tia, Tiny Tia, Daisy Tia and Bookworm Tia
How fun is this card/tag set – combining Sunny Rays, Fluffy Love and Happy Birthday. Delicious!

Also made use of the Happy Birthday sentiment and filled the outline with some colour to add depth.

Odd Girl herself Kristy used Sheepy for this sweet baby card that would make a momma proud!

So, what do you say – are you going to accept our mission? 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, November 17, 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 have fun!!!
