Okay, I don’t know many people who have cake and just sit and look at it, do you?  It’s for eating!  Even the prettiest of cakes are meant to be EATEN!

Leah here, and HAPPY FRIDAY!  It’s Friday the thirteenth, to boot; is that a lucky day for you?  What are you up to this weekend?  Don’t forget our little giveaway is still open – CLICK HERE and leave a comment telling me WHAT MAKES YOU ODD, and I’ll be announcing a winner on Monday.  A winner of what, you ask?  You’ll just have to trust me when I say it’s a pretty sweet little something-or-other…  Maybe your Friday the thirteenth comment is lucky for you, too!

We threw a baby shower for a girl at work yesterday, and THERE WAS CAKE.  It was delicious.  So delicious that I ate three pieces (had to get some with chocolate and some with vanilla and some with both!).  One might say I DID have my cake and I ate it, too.

Our Pin of the Week is brought to you by our dear friends, Miss B Crocker and Mr. D Hines.  LET THERE BE CAKE!

Let me tell you the things I love about Yorlis’ cardCupcake Mae (clear stamp set) has delightfully rosy cheeks (that’s because there’s cake!).  The black paper mimics a signboard in a little cafe with its chalkboard feel – quaint!  Paper with cakes on it?  YES!  Definitely!  Muted colors of Mae‘s dress and the cakes go POP with the contrast of those pretty flowers.  And holy wow, Yorlis rocks the trims and textures something fierce.  Trust me, that’s just what she does.  And we love it when she shares her SOGgy projects with us!

Thank you for sharing this one, Yorlis, and for your pin to our Oddies’ Project Board on Pinterest!  You’ve absolutely earned our Pin of the Week, and I know you’ve inspired our Oddies today with your gorgeous creation.

And with that, I bid you a fantabulatious weekend and can’t wait to see more of your comments…  There are some brilliantly ODD people among us, and we are thrilled to call you our Oddies! 

 

Helloooooooooo Oddies!  Happy Friday to all of you! 

Leah here on this cold and blustery day (wish they’d called a delayed opening or snow day), happy to share this sunsational project with you to kick off the weekend!

Seriously, who doesn’t love it when the spotlight is shinin’ on a Some Odd Girl ACCESSORY stamp?  I love each and every one of the characters, but when I see someone stretching their supplies and using one of the accent stamps at the focus?  That’s pure magic, right there.

This crafter has been showing the SOGgy love for a long time, always thinking out-of-the-box and wowing us with her mad stylin’ skillz.  This time, she brought the sunshine with this gorgeous yellow card featuring our In Stitches Tia clear stamp set

pin kim2

FABULOUS, no?  Kim shared this card and our collective jaws dropped.  The sewing machine cut!  The stitching around the outside of the card.  The button detail!  That tiny little pop of red for interest.  And OH MY GOSH, that needle and thread!  This, my wonderfully Odd friends, makes for one heck of a Friday Pin of the WeekKim, thanks so much for sharing this awesome card – I’m kinda seriously loving the heck out of it, and we are SO pleased to be awarding you our Pin of the Week

Yeah, that’s how you rock an accessory stamp.  Who says they have to be used JUST as accessories?  In fact, why not create something using only an accessory and/or sentiment on your next Some Odd Girl creation?  Share ’em in our Facebook group and add them to our Linky Party in the top right corner here, and we might just shine the spotlight on YOU! 

Have a great weekend, everybody!
And stay tuned for some fun stuff coming up later in the month as we near
the end of the current term with the Odd Girls…  It’s gonna be a ton of fun! 

 

Hey there, Oddies!  It’s FRIIIIIIDAAAAAAYYYY!  Woo!

Leah here, and happy to greet the weekend, and I hope you’ve all had a wonderful week, enjoying our final Digi Me image and some fun project inspiration for learning and celebrating!

Today, I am happy to bring you our Pin of the Week, as shared on our Oddies’ Project Board on Pinterest!  This crafter has knocked it outta the park (and is anyone else excited about baseball season?!) with this one, and I think you’ll agree that the bright, bold colors are just what we need to get us out of this winter blues funk!  How gorgeous is this card featuring our Petal Fairy digi stamp?

pin sharla

Seriously!  Those colors!  And I love the die-cut leaf details!  And the beautiful cut frames!  And the COLORS!  Yep, Sharla rocked this, all right.  I wanted to kick off the weekend with happy, and this covers it!  Thanks for sharing your beautiful card on our Oddies’ Project Board, Sharla, and for doing that fab thing you do with our stamps. 

Have a great weekend, Odd friends, and we hope you’ll join us Monday for more inspiration from the Odd Girls – don’t forget to subscribe to our newsletter or you could miss some exciting news!  Have I mentioned 2015 is gonna be HUGE?!
