Say "Hi!" to Ollie!

So I bought a new (to me) Some Odd Girl stamp. I had been eyeing the Ollies for a while, and then my seven-year-old gave me the perfect excuse. She saw me watching one of Kristy's coloring videos and it blew her mind that Kristy is the one that draws all the SOG stamps (I've let her color others before, and she's seen the cards I've made for other people). She is quite the budding little artist. So I showed her the online store. She liked a bunch of them, but when she saw Ollie Glee she said, "Aww, he's so CUTE! He costs three dollars? I have three dollars!" She wanted to spend all the money she had been saving on him. Isn't that adorable?

Her birthday was a week later and I just couldn't imagine making her card with anyone else. So, I bought him and printed up some extras that I slipped inside her birthday card for her to color. She was very excited. Rewardingly so. Later she mentioned that she didn't think I had ever made her a card with a SOG stamp on it. Which is true. (Truth be told, we bought her card last year.) I didn't realize it would mean so much to her! I'm kinda excited to have someone who appreciates my papercrafting so much. I guess I have a new little SOGgy on my hands!

This is for Some Odd Girl's April Sketch Challenge.
