I have a static block defined in magento's backend

<p><a href="#"><img src="{{skin url="images/fb_follow.png"}}" alt="fb" /></a> <a href="#"><img src="{{skin url='images/tw_follow.png'}}" alt="fb" /></a> <a href="#"><img src="{{skin url='images/dots_follow.png'}}" alt="fb" /></a> <a href="#"><img src="{{skin url='images/feed.pngs'}}" alt="fb" /></a></p>

This is how i call it in one of the templates

$this->getLayout()->createBlock('cms/block')->setBlockId('header_links')->toHtml()

The output (it is not rendering the {{}} parts..

<p><a href="#"><img src='{{skin url="images/fb_follow.png"}}' alt="fb" /></a> <a href="#"><img src="{{skin url='images/tw_follow.png'}}" alt="fb" /></a> <a href="#"><img src="{{skin url='images/dots_follow.png'}}" alt="fb" /></a> <a href="#"><img src="{{skin url='images/feed.pngs'}}" alt="fb" /></a></p>

I think the problem is that instead of double quotes you use single

<img src='{{skin url="images/fb_follow.png"}}' alt="fb" />

Because the html output will be like this

<img src="http://localhost/skin/frontend/base/default/"fb_follow.png"" alt="fb">

Where image path was build not correctly.

Try to use double

<img src="{{skin url="images/fb_follow.png"}}" alt="fb" />

Sorry for bothering, my problem was, i was referencing wrong block in

$this->getLayout()
         ->createBlock('cms/block')
         ->setBlockId('header_links')
         ->toHtml();

The actual block content was outputed as is without template processing

$content = Mage::getModel('cms/block')
               ->setStoreId(
                    Mage::app()->getStore()->getId()
               )->load('follow-me')
               ->getContent();

Using template processor like in Mage_Cms_Block_Block::_toHtml solved my problem

$html = Mage::helper('cms')
            ->getBlockTemplateProcessor()
            ->filter($content);
