Birthday Balloons

Hi all!  As you read this I'm headed out on a road trip with the fam to surprise my Grandma for her 85th birthday :)  But that doesn't stop the blog world from turning which means it's time for a Fab Friday over at Tiddly Inks!  Since I was in a birthday kind of mood I colored up Starry Birthday and went with a simple but bright card.  I hope that you like it and that you'll stop on by the TI challenge blog for some more inspiration from the rest of the team- they never disappoint.  Thanks for visiting me and I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!

A Perfect Match- SOG and Paper Perfect Crafting!

WELCOME to A Perfectly Odd Hop!  We Odd Girls have partnered up with the lovely ladies from Perfect Paper Crafting to bring you something fun and different! 
PPChop
We had the pleasure of getting together with Perfect Paper Crafting at CHA in Vegas, and a collaborative event was an absolute NO-BRAINER!  Would the Odd Girls like to try out some fun tools?  Heck yes!  Does the Perfect Paper Crafting team want to play with some cute stamps?  Sure thing!  And it’s a match made in heaven…
Today, both teams come together to bring you a fabulously inspiring BLOG HOP that will run through Sunday, November 17th.  There are 15 stops along the way including the main blogs, and PLENTY of inspiration for you to enjoy, so we hope you have as much fun as we’ve all had in this little partnership!
If you’re not already familiar with Perfect Paper Crafting, you are in for a TREAT!  Their tools allow crafters to get perfect placement of their mats and edges, easily shape and layer, and AIRBRUSH for gorgeous effects on their projects!  The Odd Girls enjoyed playing with their Perfect Layers, Perfect Squares, and Perfect Ruler for this little event…  You should have arrived from Mary Pat's blog, but in case you get lost or distracted along the way, here’s the hop order: 
 I was super lucky to get to work with the Perfect Layers 2 which is an absolute dream come true!  I love to mat my layers but it always took time and no matter how careful I was sometimes I would get a wonky edge that wasn't quite straight.  This tool is exactly what it's named- perfect!  I was able to mat all my layers and not only did they come out spot on but it took almost no time at all which is so important in my book.  I hope you like the effect I was able to achieve and will check them out because this tool is just the tip of the iceberg peeps!
 Be sure to comment at EVERY stop and you’ll be eligible to win one of TWO prize packs that include one of these tools and a stamp set of your choice!  Your next stop is Roxie’s blog.
We’ll be sharing inspiration throughout the week so you can see how the Odd Girls have used the Perfect Paper Crafting tools, and maybe a little guest project here and there from our partners in this hop!  Plus if you decide to go shopping over at Perfect Paper Crafting make sure to enter the code SOG5% for 5% off.  Remember you have until Sunday at midnight EST to leave your comments, then Some Odd Girl and Perfect Paper Crafting will each draw one winner, to be announced on Monday, November 18th.  Have a Perfectly Odd day, and good luck!

Snowflake

Hiya crafty peeps!  It's a new Tuesday which means a new challenge over at Tiddly Inks!  To keep things sweet and simple we've got an Anything Goes challenge for you- couldn't be easier right?  Well I couldn't resist coloring up this cutie from the new clear stamp set Holly Jolly Christmas- I know, I know, it's a little early for total Christmas but I seriously couldn't wait another minute to color her up :)  I had this wooden snowflake ornament that I colored red with my Copics and then popped her on.  I hope that you like it and that you'll join us over at Tiddly Inks!

Bring On the Cake

Hi all!  Can you believe that it's November already?  I mean, where the heck did last month go!  Well one nice thing about starting a new month is there's a new challenge over at  Some Odd Girl- now that's something I can get excited about :)  This month we want to see you use Speech Bubbles on your projects!  Super easy to do but if you want a little helping hand Kristy has some Speech Bubble cut files in the store that should do the job.  I don't have a fancy die cut machine (yet!) so I settled for a wood veneer speech bubble that I paired up with Mae Antoinette.  I went a little more clean and simple with the card cause I really wanted my image and the speech bubble to stand out.  I hope you like my card and that you'll stop on by the SOG blog to see the other amazing projects that the team came up with.  And then you've got all month to play along so I hope to see some familiar faces there!  Hope everyone has a fabulous weekend :)

Great Adventures

Hi all!  Guess what- there's a new digi release happening today over at Tiddly Inks!  If you like boy images then you must pop on over because Christy has come up with some of the cutest images ever- the DT has been having a blast playing around with them so I'm sure you'll love them too :)  Now I had a blast coloring up this little Super Boy here and he would be perfect for so many different kinds of cards.  I went the clean and simple route because that seems to be the only way I know how to do a boy card, lol!  I hope you like it and please stop on by the TI blog to see what the rest of the DT have done with all these new images- there's a ton of eye candy :)  Thanks for stopping by to visit me!!
