Hello Oddies! 

 

One of the many reasons I love Some Odd Girl Stamps is Kristy’s Adorable Critters! 

As an Registered Animal Health Technician (long title to say that I am a Veterinary Nurse), I have tons of co-workers who clearly love animals! 

For my latest co-workers birthday I decided to make a card featuring our clinic cat Bucket, Claire loves Bucket a lot, especially considering he is a very mischievous. He loves going after the flowers at work, so much so I usually have to keep a close eye on him (especially since some plants are poisonous) 

I love that kitty hopper has a bug he is playing with, but in this case I erased the bug, and added a little flower chipboard piece to personalize it a little!

I still haven’t been able to find a colour combo that truly matches Bucket, He is more sandy orange than how I coloured this kitty. But overall pretty happy at the tabby stripes I was able to achieve.

Do you have a mischevious critter of your own? I would love to hear about them!

PS. Here’s two photos of Mr. Bucket. He believes he is a handsome model whenever the camera comes out.  

 


Hi everyone Christa here with a special card.

My friend ask me “Christa can you make a beautiful card for my granny she gonna be 90 years old.
So I did my best, and lucky she liked it.

I find it always difficult to make something for someone you dont know ,so i ask a couple of things, and then she said ” i know you can do it so make something beautiful” .
Does this sound familiar to anyone?

I know Kristy has some cute  digital grandparents, so i use GRANDMA’S GARDEN .

I color her with my water medium Tansai Gambi.
And i love to work with many layers of design papers, i love that  but is not convenient for postage costs, my cards are always so heavy LOL.

Further i add some sparks in the flowers and around the oval.
A big 90 cut out from a shape, use some beautiful flowers and lace.
A paper doilly , a rose charm and a lace from a cutting die on top a lace with little roses.

I hope you like my granny card , i look forward to your response  🙂 .
Come and share your beautiful projects and cards at our SomeOddGirl Facebook Community  .

I wish you a nice day hugs Christa

 

Hi SOG Friends! If you celebrated Easter, Gangsta bunny and I hope you had a very special one.

This cool bunny was a collaboration of color choices picked by my two youngest children. The middle child thought the bunny should be blue, and the youngest thought the hoodie should be green. At first, I didn’t think it was going to work, but looking at it now, it totally does.

If you ever get stumped on color choices, reach out to a loved one and see what they suggest.

I printed Gangsta Bunny onto Kraft card stock and colored him with prismacolor pencils.

I wasn’t sure what I wanted to use for embellishments for my card, and I spotted this cute pattern paper with flowers, carrots, and butterflies. I just fussy cut them out, and popped them up on foam dots. Instant embellies.

I hope you have a wonderful week!
