Feeling a bit Odd...

Ah Monday, Monday... they've got to come around every week don't they? I don't know why, but I'm having a hard time getting going today. I feel like I could have easily slept in another hour or two... weird! I'm sure that once I get out and headed for work I'll shake these blah feelings, maybe I just need to get some fresh air or something. Anywho... my card today features a 'new to me' digi stamp that I think is absolutely adorable. I've been seeing the Some Odd Girl images popping up around blog land for awhile now but hadn't found the time to peruse the SOG shop until a few days ago... OMG can you say cuteness?! This little Flower Kaylee was batting those big, beautiful eyes at me from the store header and as soon as I found her in the new release section she just hopped right into my cart. Followed closely by a couple of her other friends too, LOL! Once I had given Kaylee a new home I knew that she was the first one I wanted to color up. So I checked out the Odd Girl blog and found a Clean & Simple challenge that was just the jump start I needed to get creating. I printed Kaylee out as a 'big head' to really focus on her fab hair and eyes, plus going that route I could just keep her on a single panel, add a sentiment and not have to worry about fussy cutting or anything... thus staying true to the C&S theme. Then it took just a bit of BG paper, a flower and butterflies to finish the whole thing off. Easy peasy and boy do I just want to give her a squeeze and pinch those cheeks! Hopefully whomever gets this card will feel the same way too. :) Alrighty, time for me to jet... catch ya on the flip side mi amigos!
