Have Fun In the New Year! Papercraft Star Challenge 27


Whoo hoo! The New Year is here and I am so excited to have a fresh new start. Now, I don't really participate in new year resolutions, but if I did, mine would be to celebrate the small stuff, enjoy it all a little more, and definitely have more fun in all that I do! That's something I wish I did more of in 2010.

This brings me to my latest creation for Papercraft Star. I created this card based on my new years resolution. It's light-hearted, a bit silly, and definitely fun! And the little owl goes perfect for my sillyness I intend on having this new year. 

For my card, I chose to use Hootie Pie Owl - a digi stamp provided by our sponsor, Pink Cat Studio. If you haven't checked out this website, I would recommend them. They have a large variety of fun little characters including digi stamps and rubber stamps too. And I'm not just saying this because they sponsored my card, but because they really are adorable (in my opinion). 

Now, it's your turn to participate in this week's challenge with us at Papercraft Star. Here are the deets...
