I HATE DRINKING ALONE!

Yep, seems like everyone is busy these days, preparing for the holidays!  Not that I have time to sit for hours sipping on (in my case) a hot cup of tea, but I miss meeting a friend or two for afternoon Starbucks. 
Some Odd Girl's challenge this week is "Girlie", and what better way to tell someone to miss them than to send a darling little SOG card!  They are also having an Early Bird Challenge, with Flowayz! So if you can hustle it, you can get in on that challenge, too!
These little SOG gals are so darn cute! 
I actually tried my hand at paper piecing for the challenge over at Totally Papercrafts! I am attempting to add more techniques to my rather limited knowledge. Boy, those TINY little pieces can really drive a gal to drink (Oh, yea, here we go back to the tea again!)  I found the paper for her little leggings in my scraps, so I have no idea what line it is. I just liked the satrburst pattern!

The background is Co'Ordinations cardstock, run through my Cuttlebug with the Swiss Dot embossing folder and sanded; flower, Stampendous (Petals Plus); Some Odd Girl, "Coffee Kaylee" image partially colored with Copics; silver t-shirt and barrettes colored with Sakura Silver Star pen. You can't tell in the picture, but her shirt is very "sparkly".

This card has also been entered in the following challenge:
In Style Stamps (Purple and Silver)
