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!
Also next week, the 16th – 22nd, is our ANNIVERSARY WEEK! Lots of fun to be had so come right back here on Sunday for a run down with all the goings on!

We’re in the middle of the holiday season and I’ve hopped to quite a few blogs and found them all decking their halls with such creativity! And all the challenges entered in for our background challenge were no exception! We had a total of 19 good entries for our last one and the winner is…

Our two favs this go had some great creativity with the background challenge. First off is Diana who took the frog from Tobie and Buddie for her background and paired it up with Tiny Princess Tia for a super fun cards!
Our next fav also had fun with their background and made it super yummy by pairing up Cherry Sprinkles (one of our past freebies) with Baker Kaylee for this card Sally made for a co-worker

Our next challenge is one you’re going to want to see thru to the very end! HA! I crack me up… Our challenge this time is a Window Card or at least we need to be able to see the interior of your card from the exterior. How you preform that feat is up to you! Here’s how our Odd girls pulled it off:
Cassandra used Santa on this fabby card!
Robin used Snowman to make a chilly card to warm you heart!
Kimmy also used Snowman and took the “window” literally
Robin Mc used Cold Kitty Tia for a warm wintery creation
and Leah also made an inviting look inside her card with Hang Out Ollie
So give us a window in your world by making us a Window Card! Remember, if you use an Some Odd Girl Digi in your creation you get 2 entires in to our draw to win 2 digis of your choice from our shop! You have thru December (oh my, already?) 1st at midnight EST to get your creation linked up!
Another incentive to play along, we are on the look out for our first ever Guest Odd Girl! We are looking at anyone who uses a Some Odd Girl image in the month of November so it could be YOU! And you could kill two bird with one stone by linking you Some Odd Girl creation on our Facebook wall for an entry in to our Facebook contest! We take care of our Oddies! 
Good luck and have FUN!

Digi Day is this Saturday November 13 and the Odd Girls will be on hand throwing down the challenges and playing some games in our SNR and PCP groups from 10am-2pm EST. But this go we wanted to kick things off a touch early for those that are weekend warriors and might not get a chance to play OR just another chance for those dedicated peeps who make it a point of pride to dabble in them all 🙂 This challenge is open for both groups (so one entry each please) and anyone else who would like to play along. Also this challenge is a stand alone and doesn’t count toward digi day points totals but has its own prize 🙂

For this challenge I’d like to see cards with DIMENSION. At least 2 things that are lifted up or stand tall. Simple layers do not count. Check out my example…

My card here has 3: the sentiment, the image is pop dotted up and the ball trim. 
So link your entry up in the inlinkz below (from your blog or one of our groups) for your chance to win! 
Win what you ask? Well if you read my blog earlier in the week you might have seen this lil image. She is not available anywhere but you could win her! Some Odd Girl is putting together a lil holiday treat that we are hoping to launch by Thanksgiving and Deer Mae is just one part of it. We are going to offer free E-Cards, a few new digis and already colored printables for fast holiday card making! This card here is made from our Deer Mae Colored Printable that I cut out with my Nestabilities and viola! You are playing to win the Deer Mae Digi!
