Hugs & kisses

Hello friends!

Well, this is my final challenge and project as an Oddie... boy have these past six months just flown by! I had a great time though and will still be anxious to see what Kristy has in store for all of us SOG fans in the future. :)

There are some big changes occurring at the Some Odd Girl blog and the first is that it will be going to a monthly format in order to offer bigger and better prizes. Normally new challenges will kick off on the first of each month but this one will be a bit different as it started yesterday and will run through February 28th at midnight EST with the winner announced on February 29th (leap year)! Along with that you will now be required to use a SOG image (clear stamp, digi stamp or sentiment). And finally the challenges will now alternate between a color inspiration, like this one, and a sketch every other month.

To kick off the new challenge format we wanted to offer a fun and bright color challenge this time... the reds and teals found in the photo are truly delish! So the challenge is simple, use these colors as inspiration for your creation. If you don’t have those exactly, come as close as you can, we’re not that picky!

For my card, I used the Heartsy Mae digi and flipped the image so that she faced the opposite direction. Then I just dug through my red and teal paper scraps until I found a fun mix that would work well with Mae. They all ended up being from various October Afternoon lines so this card turned out kinda vintage pretty, which was perfect for another Valentine. :)

So I hope you'll join the fun and play along... the prize this go round are Foxy and Pinwheel Panda, talk about cuteness!

Good luck! :)
