Hello, Gals and Pals!

Welcome to the Some Odd Girl Valentine’s Day Hop. I am the first stop on the Blog Hop! You can scroll to the bottom of this post to see the full list (just click on the next name to go to the next blog!)

I usually do not celebrate this holiday as I have no significant other in my life…. so instead I am celebrating Galentine’s Day!

galentines-day

I decided to make a card using Mae and Kaylee Selfie for my Best friend, who truly is one of the loves of my life. I have been friends with her for over a decade and our friendship will never stop. So just like Leslie Knope (who by the way is an avid scrapbooker/ craft maker), I challenge you to have your own Galentine’s with your Bestie or group of friends to celebrate. Maybe make her a Valentine’s as well.

Inside the card I am going to put Will you be my Galentine? and then make a cute checkbox with Yes (then let’s get waffles) or No (Then no waffles for you!)

Be sure to check in and comment on each blog, including this one, to be the most eligible. Since we’re spreading the love so hardcore, everyone gets 14% off at the Some Odd Girl shop using code SOGLove! )But, we’ll also be choosing 2 lucky winners from those of you who comment on every blog, each receiving a $14 spending spree in our shop.
Here’s our hop list…

Lots of Hugs!

Hi, Gals and Pals!

Today I broke out my Doodlebug and Some Odd Girl’s “Panda Nerd”

I love this cute little panda, and I designed my card to be a little bit fun for my Uncle.

Moving into a new house, my Uncle is the best! he has helped me change multiple light bulbs and actually had to help me fix the lights so that I don’t have to run up and down the stairs all the time to turn a switch on. (The people who owned this house did not know how to install 2 way light switches properly!)

I coloured the little panda after watching the animal class on how to colour panda’s and decided to add glossy accents to the glasses to make them shiny. Then decided on a layout for my card. I found the light bulb pattern paper in the doodlebug pack, and thought that would make him laugh so had to add that on the card, I then wanted the little nerdy panda to be holding a light bulb, So I actually cut out the lightbulb after printing it with my Silhouette and carefully cut around his hands so he could be holding it. I felt that the lightbulb needed a lot of shine on it, so I added Spectrum Noir glitter pen and then topped it off with glossy accents for that fun 3d effect.

Afterward, I glued all the pattern paper together and added a little bit of an inlay effect for more interest. I then went searching for a sentiment, I knew it had to be a pun on bright but I didn’t have any sentiments that matched. After searching for half an hour I decided it was time to “Frankenstein” a few sentiments so that I could make it say You are so bright.

I hope this card helps brighten your day!

Lots of hugs!

Question Time: Are you a nerd? I have always thought I am a nerd one way or another and it doesn’t even bother me now. I think it is great that “Nerd Culture” is in and is a way to express one’s self.
