Hi All,

It is my introduction day over at the Some Odd Girl blog!  We have been introducing a member of the DT each day, and every DT member is giving away a digital stamp from Some Odd Girl Digital Stamps!

Aside: there is a challenge right now that you need to check out. Kristy has challenged you to simply incorporate a rainbow into your project (could be a rainbow, or just the colours). Check out the post HERE and link up your creation!

Otherwise, let's get on with the sample and the giveaway! 

I am giving away Gorky!  I have also used him in the card on this post.  I think he is a completely adorable monster, and so fun to colour!  I always stress how much fun these images are to colour because the line art has thick black lines, and the open space is so large - it's like a great big, fun canvas!

What do you have to do to enter to win him???  Check out the post on the SOG blog, and come back here and leave me a comment telling me something about, well......myself! LOL
Comment by 11:59 pm, EST on April 14, and I will choose a name on April 15 and announce it here!

Here's my card:

The card base is Close To Cocoa, followed by a Whisper White layer, and a Basic Black layer.  The paper on the top was a miscellaneous piece of DSP I found in my stash - it looks like ripped newsprint.  I cut out a circle of the newsprint and a larger circle of Basic Black...cut that in half, and stuck one of the halves at the top, and one at the bottom.  I added oodles of dots around those with my white gel pen, as well as self-adhesive nail heads in the corners.

I tied a large bow with some black grosgrain ribbon and my Bow Easy, and attached it to the top with Mini Glue Dots. 

For the main panel, I printed Gorky off onto Neenah Solar White CS, coloured him in with Copics, and cut him out with Curved Rectangle Nesties.  I mounted him onto a black Nesty, and added white dots to that layer.  I stamped the sentiment (from SU) in Basic Black ink. 

Also, there is a freebie section on the SOG website, where you can download a different adorable image for FREE every month! Check it out!

I hope you are enjoying the festivities, and thanks for stopping by!!!  There will be a new intro tomorrow, so check back on the blog so you know where to head to enter for your next giveaway!

Hiya Robin, thanks so much for visiting my blog and leaving such a nice comment :) I loved reading your bio... I can see NOTHING wrong with wanting to hang out in the male models' changeroom. And I can totally identify with having a special place in your heart for chocolate! Chocolate is, after all, one of the five basic food groups, LOL! Loving your card and now I'm off to explore some more of your blog. Congrats on your Some Odd Girl appointment :)
