Happy Thursday, fellow crafter and Odd Friends! We’re so pleased you’re here, and we hope you’ll enjoy the FINAL CHALLENGE of 2010! It’s been a big year for Some Odd Girl, and we can’t believe how much it’s grown since its inception! Here’s to a fabulous 2011, and here’s to good (odd) friends! 🙂

Thanks so much for playing around with our GIRLIE CHALLENGE – there were some AMAZING entries, and we wish we could give you ALL a little somethin’-somethin’! (Well, there is a big SALE going on right now, so does that count?!) But there can only be ONE winner, and that would be the lucky winner is the crafty chickadee who brought us THIS little treat:

Congrats, VIXYKINS! You get to choose two images from SomeOddGirl.com and email Kristy (Kristy@SomeOddGirl.com) with your choices. WOOT! Hope you love ’em as much as we do (but I promise it’s going to be tough to choose your images!)…

And here are our two faves for this round…
this card:

belonging to HippieAud – CONGRATS! Love the colors and those fabby bows!

and this one:

created by Donna! Don’t you just love that flower, and the adorable MUSHROOM border?! Too cute!

Ladies please send Kristy a message at Kristy@SomeOddGirl.com and she’ll add your Loyalty Points to your accounts!

ANNNNNNND, a big thank you to everyone who hung out with the Odd Girls during last Saturday’s DIGI DAY! We had a handful of players for our Early Bird Challenge, and we’d like to congratulate VAL, who gave us THIS little treat, using Deery, our December FREEBIE:

Val is the lucky randomly chosen winner of THREE Some Odd Girl digis of her choice! Congratulations, Val! Please send Kristy an email at Kristy@SomeOddGirl.com with your three choices from the store, and we hope to see you again soon! 🙂

The holidays always scream shiny-sparkly to me so let’s see it on your project!

We want a MINIMUM of two different TYPES of bling on your creations! This can be anything from shimmer spray to glitter to stickles to rhinestones to glittery card to foil to shiny thread to twinkling h20s… The choice is yours, and we’re sure you’re going to rock it! Just like our Odd Girls did:

Our first ever Guest Odd Girl Corry used tons of yummy pearls and rhinestones with this fabby card featuring Deer Mae

Cassandra blinged just about everything on this Birthday Tia card (keep your eyes peeled and maybe this past FREEBIE will make another appearance!) – the frame, the stamped panel, the hat, and even the alphas! Now that’s what I’m talkin’ about! 🙂

Yvonne’s little Content Ollie card is just SO happy!
The bling factor here just adds to the mood:

Kimmy used some glitter glue, glimmer mist and adhesive rhinestones to emphasize
the chilly surrounding for our Penguin Friends

Robin McK brought the bling with some Shimmerz, Glimmer Mist, glittery paper and rhinestones – I’d say she nailed it with this cute Snowman card!

And Kristy gave the whole thing a yummy shimmer and a
healthy dose of rhinestones with Smell the Flowers Tia

So how’s all THAT for inspiration?! We can’t wait to see your blinged up projects – be sure they’re NEWLY CREATED for our challenge, you MUST link back here in your post, and link up no later than Wednesday, December 29th at midnight EST for your chance to win THREE free digis from SomeOddGirl.com OR to be chosen as one of our faves, you’ll rack up some additional Loyalty Points! Don’t forget – you don’t HAVE to use Some Odd Girl images, but if you do, you get an extra entry into the draw. OH, and since we always have a FREEBIE available, we make it REALLY easy for you!

Have fun, happy craftin’, and STAY ODD!

Hello Odd Friends! As most of you know, Saturday is DIGI DAY (in the Some Odd Girl groups on PaperCraft Planet and Scrapbook News and Review!), and we’ll be kicking things off in a few short hours. HOWEVER, I (Leah) get to host the EARLY BIRD CHALLENGE this week, which will ALSO be running a littler later than usual, as we know there are many busy holiday crafters out there and we don’t want you to miss out on your chance to win FREEBIES!

The prize for today’s challenge is….

3 Freebies of the winner’s choice from SomeOddGirl.com!

And your mission is to create ANYTHING you like using any digital image (you get a second entry if you use SomeOddGirl images and there’s always a FREEBIE, so it’s easy!), and you must have FLOWERS on your patterned paper, plus at least one dimensional flower on your project. Not too complicated, right?

Here’s an example, using the gorgeous Fairy Fly Away Mae:

There are flowers on the patterned paper, plus I cut one from the same sheet and used it in the center of my knot for interest.

So play! Link your project (must be newly created for this challenge!) below no later than MONDAY, December 13th at midnight EST for your chance to win THREE images of your choice from SomeOddGirl.com!

And join us for DigiDay, which kicks off in a few short hours! LOADS of chances to win, fun conversation and fabby inspiration from some of our fave Oddies! 😀

We are so happy to have Corry with us for December as our first ever Guest Odd Girl! She’s been a big SOGgy supporter and such a creative talent! To get to know her a lil better we’ve asked her a few questions and want to open it up to YOU to ask her some more. Here’s how Corry answered our odd questions:

1) What color do feel represents your personality and why?
My fave color is brown. Does this represent my personality?…..perhaps……I’m a country girl at heart, grew up on a farm, small town living. Everything was made of wood in our house, even my dad became a wood worker of sorts—building furniture & painting them brown. Perhaps it grew on me. To this day, I am drawn to brown shades, however have been told I look good in yellow! lol

2) Is your style of dress/ home decor similar to your style of card making?
Yes, it’s kinda all over the place, like my cards. I am not usually a clean cut, mod type person. I tend to change things up in my life ALL the time. Hubby hates when he comes home and the living room is changed around AGAIN. haha. I like to add lotsa embellies to my cards, which also resembles my home decor of a ‘whole lot going on’….not just one style; but dress/clothes wise, I am as plain as they come. Sweats & a T !! That’s me!

3) What one thing always puts you in a good mood?
Grocery shopping. Sounds corny I know (especially lugging 3 kids for the 1.5 hr ride to the big city-better deals)…. but spending a whole wack of money on groceries & just knowing that for the next month we have enough food to make some healthy meals, makes me happy. Means hubby & I are providing well for our family.

4) What SOG character do you most identify with and why?
Ice Cream Tia. I haven’t made a card with her yet, waiting for summer, you know. Cuz when I was growing up I always had a small vanilla cone dipped in chocolate almost every day after school. Then we I was old enough to get a job, one of my first places of employment was at that SAME ice cream store. MMMmmmmmmmm I love my ice cream!

5) Are you just a cardmaker or do you dabble in other crafts?
I also do scrapbooking. Tradtional & digital, but this has kinda fell at the wasteside since finding blogland. To give you an idea, one of my last scrapbooking pages was when my 3 yr old was 9 months! YA! Pretty bad.

6)Where do you find your inspiration?
I dunno, really. It just comes. I am not an artistic person by any means, but seeing all the lovely creations in blogland really gets me inspired to improve, to try a different style, to try a different color combo, to make something other than a card. I have had the privilege to be on some DT’s with some amazingly talented ladies who inspire me daily with their kind words & fresh creations!!! (mwah) Also, when you have a good image to work with (like SOG digis), the inspiration just falls into place. ACTUALLY, I was thinking the other day, that it was the first SOG blog hop (was it a hop? where each SOG DT member shared a tip) that intrigued me to improve on my coloring & purchase some copics for skin & hair tones. I will never forget the feedback all the ladies gave me when I commented on their creations. I remember jumping back to that hop when I wondered what color copic I should use next!!! Pretty cool hey?!

So what would YOU like to know? Corry will be answering questions here in the comments 🙂 She has also made a fabby project to showcase her talents!

Don’t you just LOVE her pleated ribbon and super coloring of Tobie? We are happy to have her this month!
