What a Hoot!


     It's a "Stars" theme this week at the Catered Crop.  For my card I've used some star DP from October Afternoon and added a couple of handmade chipboard stars that were inked and embossed with clear embossing powder.
     I absolutely LOVE owls and this little cutie is from 2 Cute Ink. Heidi Schwoerer draws some of the most adorable little characters.  This hootie was a freebie a while back, but you can find him in her store.  I have several more of these digis I hope to share with you soon.
     It's a bit dreary and rainy here today, but this sweetie makes me smile and I hope he makes you smile too.  You have about a week and a half to get in on my blogaversary candy draw if you haven't already.  Another thanks to my newest followers.  ☺
