Strettttch. Yawn.
I don't know if you know this about me, but most nights I find it hard to drift off to sleep. Over the years I have learned that reading 15 minutes in bed makes me drowsy and helps me fall off faster. Recently, I started a new book series that has the opposite effect on me. Have you ever ran across a book that is so hard to put down, you end up staying up until the wee hours of the morning?

That is me right now.

Fablehaven written by Brandon Mull is actually a fantasy series geared toward children's literature, but the story has me enthralled! I have always been a sucker for fantasy novels, and this one has pulled me right in. I've been staying up til 2-3am reading and I am zonked the next day. I foresee a nap in my future today, which works out nicely because I have little-man home with me sick today with a fever.

Now, some fun crafty news.. today is the last reveal day for Some Odd Girl's newest clear release stamp sets! I created two cards for this release because I fell head over heels for this one.. Clever Kittys!

I ended up trying to color both my creations with no lines using my Copic Markers.. I think they turned out pretty cute! I called this little guys, Fangs. :)

and this one is reminded of Sheldon's song from The Big Bang Theory.
Know what I'm talking about?

Soft kitty,
warm kitty,
little ball of fur

Happy kitty,
sleepy kitty,
purr, purr, purr.

Kristy has also come up with cut files for these stamps.. you can use them with your Cameo Silhouette, or pretty much any cutter program that can load SVG and PNG's.

There you have it.. go check out the Some Odd Girl blog to see more examples with this new 4x6 set.. and don't forget to come sign up at Some Odd World.. the new challenge this week is Trash Your Stash: Ribbon.
