 Happy New Year!  I pray this year brings you Joy!

This cute little owl is from the Adorable Owls Sale-a-Bration stamp set which I will be featuring all this week.  These little guys are so cute, so I hope you enjoy them.  This stamp set will be available January 5 as one of the FREE Sale-a-Bration selections you can choose when you place a $50 order.

Today my owl is filling in for the letter "O", and he's all dressed up in his bow tie and ready to celebrate the New Year.

The die cut letters were made with a retired set of dies I still have.  There are some things that are just worth hanging on to.

But if you don't already have any "larger" letter dies, you will be able to get some of your own on January 5 when the January - April Mini catalog goes live.  There is a new set of alphabet dies in the new Mini called ALPHABET A LA MODE, and they are very similar to the retired set I used.  In fact, they are closer in height to the height of my little owl, so they would work perfectly to do something like this!

The pretty animal print designer series paper that you see in the background (and on the envelop flap) is also a new collection from the Mini catalog called Like and Animal.  The pattern I chose for today's card has a silver foil animal print, but there are also gold designs and some very pretty non-foiled animal prints.  If you are a fan of animal prints, you are definitely going to want to check out this collection.

I colored my New Year's Owl with Stampin' Blends, and if you would like to know the colors I used, you can download a complete tutorial at this link with all the details.

I really wanted to make him a Snow Owl, but he didn't show up very well on my card, so I had to change my plan, but I think he still turned out cute.  What do you think?

For the inside of my New Year's card, I used a recipe that the pastor at my church shared during our Christmas service.  He said he often uses this recipe as part of his message at weddings.

It resonated with me, and I thought it made a nice wish for a Happy New Year card, so I decided I would share!  

Wishing you all a Very Blessed 2023!
