Happy Hootenanny – Stampin’ Up! Owl Punch

Happy Hootenanny – Stampin’ Up! Owl Punch New Year’s Card for CASology’s Owl Challenge

Please, please, please forgive the dreadful pun! You’ll see what I mean when you scroll down to see the card! I’m entering today’s project into CASology’s Owl Challenge. The only Owl related crafting item I possess is the Stampin’ Up! Owl Punch and so that is what I used. I decided on a New Year’s card as I’ve been thinking about what is happening after Christmas, what we’re doing to celebrate on New Year’s Eve and starting to plan ahead to 2016 for new classes with the lovely new products from the forthcoming Spring/Summer catalogue.

Stampin' Up! Owl Punch Tracy May New Years Card

So now you see what I mean about the dreadful pun! Sorry! 😆

These days, New Year’s Eve is a fairly quiet event. We don’t go off to busy bars or parties anymore – firstly we don’t have the stamina for it now and secondly we can’t get a willing babysitter. If we do go out, it’s mainly just my husband and I, having a quiet meal and we’re always back home early because it’s David’s elderly parents looking after the kids, so we head home early so as not to keep them up too late. We then usually end up watching Jules Holland’s Hootenanny New Year’s Eve programme on TV for the count down to midnight! We know how to rock! Lol!

Well I hope you like today’s silly little card! It’s good to create something silly and frivolous from time to time don’t you think?

By the way, the owl’s little hat is from Guy Greetings in case you’re wondering? Oh and the extra sliver of silver glimmer paper and the red glimmer heart??? Yep – hiding inky fingerprints! 😁
