SOG Hol Odd Hop

Happy Tuesday

WELCOME to our Hol-ODD-Day Hop!  ‘Tis the season for the Odd Girls to get their craft on, and whip up some fun things just in time for the holidays!   Some Odd Girl is very happy to bring you our annual…
holodddayhop
This year, we are VERY happy to bring you some of our gift and decor ideas that we hope will inspire you as we all head into the home stretch!  Today, we HOP!  All you have to do is visit all of the blogs below and leave some love at each stop.
For my project I used the brand new Library Mae digi stamp that will be release tomorrow!  I have several family and friends that are avid readers and on my shopping list I have some new books for them.  So, I thought how awesome would it be to get a new book AND a brand new bookmark using Library Mae.  Here is what I came up with:

I started with a Core'dinations book mark and cut the ends to form a banner.  I then added my sentiment Warm Wishes and heat embossed it.  I then got inky and inked up my bookmark with some of the blues from Tim Holtz distress inks.  I then added a little pattern paper from October Afternoon and then added Miss Mae!  I colored her with my Spectrum Noir markers.  I pop dotted her on to give her a bit more dimension.  Finally I added some chevron May Arts ribbon.
