Monkey Business

There is something wicked happening at {{ Some Odd Girl }} - not only is the main site revamped to one of the funkiest and coolest digi shops I have seen in a long time but you can make your mark on the newest member to the SOG family

Who is I...

Name the monkey and win big time.

Check out the skinny {{ here}}, but just to whet your appetite here's a brief run down of what could be yours:
  • a $40 gift certificate to any of the {{ CSN's stores }} (they have pretty much everything your heart desires)
  • a Copic Cia Set donated by {{ iCopic }}
  • a full set of the Monkee release (that is 5 digi stamps)

I wish I could play along....

But hey, at least i could play along to a selection of other challenges using SOG's September FREEbie {{ Bussie }}. I will never know how {{ Kristy }} comes up with all these fun images - espesh considering she is a full time workin' Dude-Momma...
Anyhoo, I digress - even though mojo has somehow been left behind in Norway and despite the fact that all of a sudden my colouring is worse than that of a primate AND that my printer decided to just die on me today, I managed to throw this card together. Not entirely happy with it but with the fact that I combined so many challenges *pushes-chest-out-proudly*
