The hop runs thru December 1 at 6pm. The Odd Girls will have their winners posted December 2 on their blogs. 

Along with the fun we are having hoppin along today I've got some other fun things for you. 

First I'd like to introduce you to our first Guest Odd Girl Corry Smyrski! Corry has taken part in alot of our challenges and Digi Day and we dig her style! Welcome to the Odd Girls for December! She will be participating in our challenges and I will be posting a fun feature about her too! Corry is also getting some fun digis to play with as a Guest Odd Girl! You will be hopping to her blog today so don't forget to give her a big CONGRATS!

Next on our list, our free Ecards are now LIVE! Handcoded by my hubby (gotta give him props, it wasn't easy!), we have 3 fun Ecards that you can customize and send along to your friends! Also, if you like the images you see, just hop on over to the shop and pick up either the uncolored version(s) or fully colored version(s) for super easy Christmas card making! 

Next I'd like to announce a fun little contest that you can play along with now thru January 16th.

I've gotten alot of email from people who love the Tinies because Tia looks like their daughter, niece or granddaughter and Tobie looks like thier son, nephew or grandson. LOVE IT! So my ever thinking hubby says "you should have a contest where people color a Tia or a Tobie and use it on a card to look like their child and have them post a picture to show the likeness." Of course I was all over the idea! So that's what we are going to do. To be eligible you need to create a card/project using Tobie or Tia colored up to look like your lil one. In your blog post entry, you must have a pic of your lil one to compare. Then just link it up in the contest post for all of us to OOOOO and AWWWWW over :) Don't forget to grab our blinkie too! Here is an example of what we're looking for...

Your project and a comparison either in one piccy or side-by-side. That is my Tiny man Kenton holding his super Tobie card. He did ask me "why is he wearing his panties on top of his pants?" Awkward that lol. Anyways, show us your Tinies and during our Anniversary Celebration week (January 16th - 22nd) we will announce the winner with a fun prize! Join our My Tiny contest and have FUN!

Last fun bit for you, we are announcing our next DT Call. Our sweet Odd Girls' term in ending at the end of January :( So I'd like to invite everyone to apply, for all the deets please click HERE. The call will run thru January 14th and the new team will be announced February 1st. Check it out and spread the Odd Word!

Are you still here? Get to hoppin! Kimmy is your first stop!

just so our hoppers know, only our Odd Girls are not eligible to win the prizes along the way :)

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!

Style Challenge #9 - Backgrounds

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:
What a wonderful digi card - it is so real I had to do a double-take to realise it is completely digi

Congratulations to you - please email Kristy(at)Someoddgirl(dot)com to claim your prize.

There were so many amazing entries that it was really difficult to make a decision on our top two. The first winner of some loyalt points is
I just love the apples, the paint and her sweet coloring!

And the other lucky crafter who can claim some loyalty points is:

How can you not fall in love with these wonderful projects

Please email Kristy(at)Someoddgirl(dot)com to get your points added to your shopping account.

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!!!

And we have another fun thing for you to think about, Some Odd Girl is going to be looking for Guest Oddies. We will be choosing some lucky peeps from around the internet who impress us to come take part in the Odd Festivities. What better way to get our attention than to show us what you've got by getting in on this challenge? Our Guest Oddie will get some freebies and some other fun TBA. Good Luck to everyone!
