Ok, adesso veniamo al nuovo challenge, devo dirvi il tema per questa volta: abbiamo un piccolo photo inspiration challenge per voi! Qualcosa che vi accompagni durante le vacanze e vi faccia pensare alla stagione dell'ammmmmmmmooore!
Lasciatevi ispirare da questa immagine...



Interesting huh? Lots of things you can look at! Woodgrain, hearts, red, book pages, tickets, colors etc etc etc... Want to see how the Odd Girls were inspired? Check them cards going on this page.
I made a card too, and even if I didn't be publicated, I would to show anyway... you know every comment, bad or good, is music for me! :) You know I don't like make waves about my works too, but I have to say this time that... it's great! Tick tack toe idea mixed with "xoxo" word is really a stroke of genius!!
This little work is made for someone speciale... I'm sure he knows who I'm talking about him ♥ isn't this card perfect for celebrate St. Valentine?!?
❝ ❞
Interessante, eh?! Potete concentrarvi su tante cose: legno, cuori, rosso, pagine del libro, tickets, colori etc etc etc... volete vedere come le ragazze Odd si sono ispirate?? Date un'occhiata alle loro card andando su questa pagina.
Anche io ho fatto una card, e anche se non sono stata pubblicata, vorrei mostrarvela comunque... sapete che ogni commento, bello o brutto che sia, è musica per me! :) Sapete anche che non mi piace vantarmi dei miei lavori, ma stavolta devo proprio dirlo... è grandiosa! Il tris mixato alla parola "xoxo" (notoriamente il "baci" inglese come metodo di saluto) è davvero un colpo di genio!!
Questo piccolo lavoro è stato creato per qualcuno di speciale... Sono sicura che lui sappia a chi mi rivolgo ♥ Questa card non è perfetta per celebrare San Valentino?!?

I would show you my last work made for Deep Ocean Challenge Blog; in these cold months, after snow and frost, what can be better than a warm, sweet wish?!?! So we want celebrate Christmas this year wishing you the best things in new year in the warmest way!! Here in Italy snow is coming, we are about 1-2° C and the sky is usually white, but when you see trought the windows, in homes decorated for Christams, you can feel every single warm lovely feeling of this season... is true, for Christmas everyone is more kind!
I'm really proud about this tag... in this last period, I don't know why, I find a particular, special delight make tags; usually for Christmas I make a ton of cards, one after the other, every day cards, but this year, uhmmm, I don't know, I'm feeling in tag-mode, ahahah :D
For this time, I made once on blue-green tones, "warmed" by a touch of pink here and there, glittering the outline and the skirt, with some gems that give a "frosty" touch and a softy pon-pon ribbon... hope my sweet boyfriend will love it, it's for him!
Challenge "warm wishes" started on tuesday and it will run until Jan. 2nd... don't forget to be one of us! we are always so glad to see what you amazingly created!
❝ ❞
Vorrei mostrarvi il mio ultimo lavoro fatto per il Deep Ocean Challenge Blog; in questi mesi freddi, dopo la neve e il gelo, cosa può esserci di meglio di un caloroso, dolce augurio?!? Così noi vogliamo celebrare il Natale quest'anno augurandovi le migliori cose per il nuovo anno nel più caldo dei modi! Qui in Italia sta arrivando la neve, viaggiamo all'incirca sui 1-2° C e il cielo di solito è bianco, ma quando guardi dalle fineste, nelle case decorate per Natale, puoi sentire ogni singolo caloroso, amorevole sentimento di questa stagione... è proprio vero, che a Natale son tutti più buoni!
Sono davvero orgogliosa di questa tag... in questo ultimo periodo, non so perchè, provo un particolare, speciale piacere nel fare tags; di solito per Natale faccio tonnellate e tonnellate di cards, una dopo l'altra, ogni giorno card, ma quest'anno, uhmmm, non so perchè, mi sento in modalità-tag ahahah :D
Questa volta ne ho creata una sui toni del blu-verde, "riscaldata" da un tocco di rosa qui e là, glitterando il contorno e la gonna, con alcune gemme che danno un tocco "congelato" e un morbido nastro a pon-pon azzurri... spero che al mio ragazzo piacerà, è per lui!
Il challenge "warm wishes" è iniziato martedì e andrà avanti fino al 2 di Gennaio... non dimenticate di essere uno dei nostri! Siamo sempre estremamente felici di vedere cosa avete incredibilmente creato!

2nd Annual Customer Hol-ODD-Day Hop! on SOG

Buonasera...
>>notizia flash!<<
Ancora 8 ore per partecipare al 2nd Annual Customer hop su SomeOddGirl: iniziato lunedì, dura fino alle ore 24:00 EST di stasera, per cui non è proprio troppo tardi (come sapete ormai, sono una ragazza che fa tutto di corsa e sempre all'ultimo momento :D).

"Da oggi a mercoledì, abbiamo un hop per chiunque voglia partecipare mostrando una Odd creazione natalizia! Sarà molto facile quest'anno, basta solo linkare su il VOSTRO progetto natalizio! L'unica cosa di cui avete bisogno per qualificarvi è un'immagine Some Odd Girl sulla vostra card e un tema natalizio, ed è fatta! Ci dovrebbero anche essere alcuni premietti random lungo la via."
Abbiamo anche un po' di divertimento extra: linkate e create un progetto che calzi con una delle categorie sotto e noi prenderemo il migliore da ogni categoria che vincerà un super fantastico pacchetto premio! Ecco le categorie:

Mens *Mens*- Create una card natalizia per un maschio
All White *White*- la vostra creazione deve essere tutta in bianco ESCLUSA l'immagine, che può essere colorata.
Give a Little Gift *Gift*- qualcosa come una card porta-regalo o una borsa regalo. Siate creativi!
Non Traditional *NT* - Colori non tradizionali o modello della card o soggetto. Ci sono molti modi per lavorare sulla cosa!

Per far entrare il vostro lavoro in una categoria quando lo linkate, basta solo aggiungere la categoria (l'abbreviazione che trovate accanto tra asterischi) dopo il vostro nome. Per esempio Kristy *Mens* o Leah *NT* e noi sapremo dove includervi, solo una entry per categoria, non backlinking a vecchie creazioni, devono essere state fatte per questo hop (ovviamente potete linkarle anche ad altri challenge).

Se siete lenti come me nel creare, potete pensare di adattare qualche vecchia creazione NON ANCORA PUBBLICATA a questo evento... ci sono in palio premi meeeeeravigliosi! Provare per credere qui.

❝ ❞

Good evening...
>>flash news!<<
Still 8 hours per add your entry to 2nd Annual Customer hop on SomeOddGirl: started on monday, to last until 00:00 EST, therefore isn't too much later (as you know, my life is a rat race :D).


"Today thru Wednesday, we are having a hop for anyone who wants to join in to show off a Odd holiday creation of their very own! Its going to be really simple this year, just link up YOUR holiday project! The only thing you need to be able to qualify is a Some Odd Girl image on your card and a holiday theme and you are good to go! There might be some random goodies given along the way"
We also have a little optional bit of fun: Link up and create a project that fits one of the catagories below and we’ll be picking the best from each catagory to win a super awesome prize pack! Here are the catagories:

Mens *Mens*- Create a holiday card for the men!
All White *White*- your creation must be all white NOT including you image. That may be colored.
Give a Little Gift *Gift*- some thing like a gift card holder or gift bag. Get creative!
Non Traditional *NT* - Non traditional colors or card design or subject. So many ways to run with it!

To enter a catagory when you link up just put the catagory after your name. For example Kristy *Mens* or Leah *NT* and we’ll know to include you, 1 entry per catagory only, no backlinking to old creations, they must be for this hop (though you can link it to other challenges).

If you're slow like me creating, you can think to convert another creation with a SOG image that fit a category, NOT STILL PUBLISHED to this event... you can win aaaaaamazing prizes! Try and see here.

Hi guys :)

Salve ragazzi :)
sono tornata dopo tanto tanto tempo (sì, lo so, è un casino di tempo... scusate ç_ç) per mostrarvi alcune creazioni fatte in queste ultime settimane. Anche se sono stata super impegnata con alcune fiere/mercatini, impegni personali e volontariato, ho continuato a creare lavori su lavori... finalmente è arrivato il momento di mostrarveli, eh?! Yuppieee... sono così eccitata! Aspetto commenti sinceri, ok?!?
Ok, come dice il titolo, sapete che amo i timbri SomeOddGirl (e sono anche un'entusiasta Odd Girl!), e questo Natale sono diventati i miei personaggi preferiti per essere usati nelle mie card e tag... non è una sorpresa, ma con questi lavori dichiaro il mio totale, profondo amore per loro! :D

And here we are theeee fabulousss...!,
increeediiibleeeee...!,
aaamaaaziiiing...
... Nouveau Girls Release Hop!

Ok, probably this new release will change your life forever (mine is surely changed after seen them), so stay calm, breathe slowly e wonder for one of most beautiful stamps line in history. There has been a lot of excitement building up to this event but not only do we have this new line to share with you, we also have some other fun, new things too!

You come here from the fabolous Lou Mac right (your eyes are always shining for her card right?! oh, gosh, I believe you, is the same for me...)? If yes, you're in the right way, baby!, if not... uhmmm, come back at the beginning and start a commenting hop!
So, talking about hop, I say you that
along the way you'll see some fabulous project by our Odd Girls who have just had so much fun (much, muuuuch fun, believe me!) with this new line and have been bursting at the seams to share! We're bringing you 3... oh yes, 3 NEW CLEAR STAMP DESIGNS that we hope will knock your socks off - come on! how could you resist??!? - thand you'll love for all sorts of projects.

This is my tag using "Grow" set... oh, isn't she gorgeous? I had a lot of fun colouring her dress, this drapes is for a patient soul, I know, but look what a superb effect you have at the end!
Searching for a good layout, when I was on work, I thought about Alphonse Mucha and his incredible paints: his girls usually put on gold backgrounds and something could remember an "aura", inspired me and... this is the result! The flowers create a special crown around her... beautiful princess!

Guest Designer for The Stamping Bazaar

Yuppieeeeee!! After so long time I missed here, here I am with a big news!
I am Guest Designer for
The Stamping Bazaar... can you believe it? Me?? On The Stamping Bazaar??? Uh uuh uuuuh! I couldn't believe when Susuan and Emma from The Two Pink Ladies, co-ordinators for TSB (I have not words for describe their sweetness and kindness, they're two lovely girls... hope you'll have the possibility sooner or later to talk with these two sweeties, and go to visit their blog for see a lot of fantastic creations) sent me a mail where they asked me to be GDT for a day... can you image my eyes?!? O_O I had not a digital camera in that moment, otherwise here you could see a picture of my face eheheh
Halloween has always been one of my favorite Holidays, even if in Italy it doesn't exist and it's not celebrate (I'm very sad about it), but I'm deeply sure that this magical night has the power to come up the child inside us... and it's simply fantastic!! And then, maybe we must talk about candies that jump up from everywhere?!? Candy apples,
chocolate, candies, pie and muffin.... a pain for teeth, but a pleasure for my mouth!
Ok
, several times I declared my shameless love for Marvin, the little bat by The Stamping Bazaar, with my friend
Alberto (he has the merit and the guilt for my love for him!)... and this occasion is perfect for use him!! I chose Marvin with Candy Apple, so perfect for an Halloween card! The theme chosen was "anything goes"... can something be more easy?! So I took my best spooky papers and my favourite Copic colour, and I started... and this is the result! My lovely card on The Stamping Bazaar here!

❝ ❞
Yuppieeeeee!! Dopo così tanto tempo che sono mancata, sono tornata con una grande notizia!
Sono Guest Designer per
The Stamping Bazaar... ci credete? Io?? su The stamping Bazaar??? Uh uuh uuuuh! Non potevo credere ai miei occhi quando Susuan ed Emma da The Two Pink Ladies, coordinatrici per TSB (non ho parole per descrivere la loro dolcezza e gentilezza, sono adorabili... spero che avrete prima o poi la possibilità di parlare ed avere a che fare con loro, e andate assolutamente a visitare il loro blog per vedere un sacco di fantastiche creazioni), mi hanno inviato una mail dove mi chiedevano di essere GDT per un giorno... potete immaginare i miei occhi?!? O_O Non avevo una macchina fotografica in quel momento a portata di mano, altrimenti qui avreste potuto vedere un'immagine della mia faccia ehehehe
Halloween è sempre stata una della mie feste preferite, anche se in Italia non esiste e non viene celebrata (non vi dico la mia tristezza per questa cosa), ma sono profondamente sicura che questa magica notte ha il potere di far tornare "a galla" il bambino che c'è in noi... e questo è semplicemente fantastico!!... E poi vogliamo parlare dell'immensità di dolci che saltano fuori ovunque, mele caramellate, cioccolata, caramelle, tortine e muffin... un dolore per i denti, ma un piacere per la bocca!
Ok, diverse volte ho dichiarato il mio amore spudorato per Marvin, il piccolo pipistrello della TSB al mio amico
Alberto (lui ha il merito e la colpa di avermelo fatto conoscere)... e questa occasione è perfetta per usarlo!! Ho scelto Marvin with Candy Apple, davvero fantastico per una card di Halloween! Il tema scelto era "anything goes"... poteva essere più facile?! Quindi ho preso le mie migliori spaventose carte e i miei colori Copic preferiti, ho iniziato... e questo è il risultato! La mia card su The Stamping Bazaar qui!



He's sooooo cuuute! ... and I'm so hungry looking his candy apple, slurp! I used different decorations: flowers, stars punched, buttons, pearls, a skull... all for create the magic caos there is during Halloween night! ... Enough spooky and sweet for you?
❝ ❞
E' così cariiiiiinooo! ... e io sono così affamata guardando la sua mela caramellata, slurp! Ho usato diverse decorazioni: fiori, stelle punchate, bottoni, perle, un teschio... tutto per ricreare quel magico caos che esiste durante la notte di Halloween! ... E' abbastanza spaventevole e dolce per voi?

Good afternoon guys, this time I want put a spotlight on the new 14 digi images release by Some Odd Girl... 14, understand?!?! 14 amazing, spooky, sweet, warm images... Oh God, I can't believe it!

Today is... *drum roll*... DAY ONE of Digi Release Reveal Week!

Each day, Monday through Friday, we will be revealing 2-3 new digis HERE, on the Some Odd Girl challenge blog. But not only do you get to BUY the digis on the day of their reveal, you'll also get a special discount! On the day they are revealed they'll be available in the shop at 25% off FOR THAT DAY ONLY!

You can buy today's digis here, on Some Odd Girl shop... are you asking yourself why I wrote "A spoooooooooooky release", right?!?! Go on the shop, and you'll see!! But don't be scared, this little cuties are sooo lovely, they're a concentrate of sweet fears... has I told several times, I hope to find some these extremely lovely guys at my door on Halloween night!! They'll be better than candies, absolutely!!
In my first card, with Tia, I tried to create a scene at the twilight, with the beautiful ghosty girl sitting on a pumpkin... probably waiting for his lost love; in the second I tried to create a really original decomposed mummy's skin, but he is too much cute and I couldn't run away... bbrrrr spooooooky!!
I waited so long for use these stamps... and now I can!! I love, LOVE, Halloween theme and these stamps are some of most beautiful, cute and sweet I've ever seen (they're among my favourite stamps)!!!
Enjoy to see my creations, hope you like them!

Today are in scene Halloween Tia (MY lovely ghost version):

Good evening (or morning, or afternoon... however good something wherever you are!)

But there is a special, colourful Christmas on Some Odd Girl today, a Christmas in pink, blu and green (I'm not a great pink fan, but it wasn't difficult create something with these colours mix), a sweet sweet holiday inspired by this picture:

Have an happy wedding day

FOR SOME ODD GIRL BLOG HOP CLICK HERE

Tuesday was open a new challenge on Deep Ocean Challenge blog, this time the LACE has the leading role, protagonist of a lot of creations and lovely works, and best friend of vintage lovers.


Loved by all, our nannies or grandmothers have a lot of it on their skirt or dressing gown, always in our mind when we think about Romantic period, or the ribbons in the hair of young girls at the end of 18OO, or the hem lines of white blouses of women at the beginning of 20th century, or old vintage photoes of our grandparents around years 20'-30'...
in every side you watch it, the lace is always fantastic, so lovely and chic, and we want give it a big thanks for help our creations to be wonderful, beautiful and sweet (or sexy)!

This time we want see how you interpretate this great theme, with ribbon or fabric it isn't important, must only be lace on your creation!
My interpretation for this theme coincides with a commission that asked me a card for a wedding: the bride, a dear friend of the girl who asked me this, is an "England lover" so I decided to tribute her with the same colours of english flag; the tag on the left is for write the newly weds, obviusly.
