Happy Birthday Sis!

How cool is that?! My OLDER sister (he he he) gets to celebrate her birthday on the last triple number sequence of this century! It's too early to call her but I hope she has special plans for today. I on the other hand am wishing that this cold/flu whatever would please just go away!!! Today I didn't wake up as achy so that's a good sign but all this is messing up my cookie making! My girls can't wait for me to feel better.
This is my first Some Odd Girl. I'm seeing more of this cuties in my future. There goes me trying to keep a low key in stamping but there are so many wonderful stamps out there! She's done in Copics and my new challenge is to get those wonderful face expressions season SOG colorists do. Just incredible!
Happy Birthday Sis! Love you!

Merry Christmas Magnolia

Just a quick little post today, the days are whipping past me and I have much more to share with you. Tonight I'm going to sit down and get my Christmas cards filled out and ready for the mail. I know this is going to sound odd for someone who makes cards all year round but I rarely give them out, LOL. Well this year I decided to change that and part of my New Year resolution is to do the same all year round next year. Let's see!
Well here is another Magnolia cutie. I just love the ribbons in her hair. This will be one of many going out tonight. Hmmmm... but to who?? She's colored in Copic markers and once again using the Authentique Festive paper. I think that is my favorite paper this year.
I'm off to stir the beds again and wake the kids for school. Have a great Tuesday!

Christmas countdown and Oozak Challenge

 Hello Bloggy friends! The countdown has begun! 25 days til Christmas! Good thing I got most of my shopping done on Black Friday. This weekend is the start of cookies! I pulled all  my great holiday tins out with the Christmas decorations and they are ready to be filled! Gotta admit I can't wait to make my fav Ginger snaps! YUM!

Well I hope you like this cute little countdown project. I found this great tutorial here. I thought it was the perfect idea for the new challenge over at Oozak challenges. If you haven't joined us at Oozak you really need to check it out. Rusty gives out the most amazing prizes! This month's challenge is super easy too! ANYTHING GOES! with a twist...add red. Easy right?!
A couple of details about my countdown calendar....Well I know you recognize Magnolia's Tilda from the Little Christmas Collection. The pattern paper is by Authentique called Festive. Tilda is colored in copics and my chipboard numbers with Fired Brick from Distress inks. The most challenging part of putting this together was figuring out what numbers go on what block so that you are able to countdown. It's a bit of a puzzle!
Don't forget to join us at Oozak Challenges. Come see what else the rest of the design team has to inspire! and join us! I can't wait to see what you come up with!
