Welcome back Oddies! This is our first, and maybe toughest, challenge of the week 🙂 Don’t let that scare you away! It only SOUNDS tough but its really all about what people who love digis love about digis: versatility! I want you to take 1 digi and use it in 3 different ways. You could make 3 projects, using the digi differently on each like you’ll see Robin doing OR 1 digi in 3 different ways on the same project kinda like what Cassandra did. What do I mean by “different ways”? Well, the beauty of digis is that you can flip then, make them HUGE, make them tiny, make a background, the possibilities are only limited by your imagination! I know you all have great imaginations so use it! Robin and Cassandra and I have taken up the torch with a few examples:

Robin made these 3 projects featuring Unicorn
Cassandra is showing the versatility of a tasty Cupcake

See its not hard! Just make sure we can see the “different ways” and you’ll be in! Just like all our challenges this week your entry is due to be linked up by the end of day January 23 EST. and for all our challenges this week you MUST use a Some Odd Girl digi. Need a new digi for the challenge? Check out what sale might be going on in the shop!
What are you playing for? I know I’ve got some goodies up my sleeve! First, since its the toughest challenge of the week, I’ve got not only 3 digis of your choice from Some Odd Girl, but a $10 gift certificate to Oozak.com! C’mon, you know you were going to shop there anyway, best price on Copics hands down! So you can put it towards your next order 🙂

Welcome to our first official blog challenge of 2011! I hope everyone has sufficiently recovered from the holidays to have tons of fun with us 🙂 Let’s get right down to biz with the challenge…

For this challenge I want to see embossing, either dry or heat whatever works for you. It just needs to star in your creation. So break out your heat gun, break out your cuttle bug or Big Shot and have at it! The girls have had some fun with this challenge:

Kristy (me 🙂 ) used Night Out Mae for a lovey card

Robin used Love Letter Kaylee to make a sweet note for a sweetheart
Marcie used Valentine Tobie to make a cute boy’s card
Tanya used Royal Love and shined up a crown with some clear embossing for a fun card
 Yvonne used Night Out Mae and Sweet Kody on a card for 2

So can you let embossing be the star of your show? Show us your project so we can see the results. This challenge will run thru January 26th so make sure to link it up and link back to this post so more peeps can play along! You don’t have to have a Some Odd Girl digi to play along but since you get an extra entry if you do, and we have a freebie on the site right now, there is no reason not to! 
Don’t forget to big things happening right now too! January 14th is the last day to get your application in to be an Odd Girl! Lots of exciting things coming in the next term so you will want to be in on this one people! Next, the 16th is the last day to get your entries in for the My Tiny contest, there aren’t alot of entries so get yours in!
