Henry and Snowflakes!

Good Saturday morning! Before I head out with the cats for the vet I wanted to get a card posted! I'm so happy that my number of followers is growing and to all loyal who came by this week and didn't see much new! I'm crazy over Whiff of Joy's Henry Mouse and think I've bought ALL the Christmas ones. I wish they hadn't put holly in the skiing, skating and cocoa ones because then they could be used more easily all winter. Oh well, maybe there are more Henry's coming!
Anyway, I've colored Henry with the warm grey tones (colored him awhile ago so I have to see if I wrote colors down later). I use E93 for the peach tones on him and my favorite Blue greens (Bgoooo, BG10 and BG72). the dp is Signature Suite from My Mind's Eye quite awhile ago. It really has some nice rose colors in it and I'm afraid they photographed brown.
The snowflake punch is new from Martha Stewart-called Snowfall and comes in a set with the corner punch. Love it! (And paid too much for it!)
Of course you recognize the brilliant Anna Wight's glitter snowflakes. Anna said last year that she was addicted to her Crystal snowflakes! so am I!! Here is the post where she goes through how to make them Anna Wight-Sweet Miss Daisy
I found the glitter glass on ebay at the time and still have lots! It has never cut me (in case you are wondering as I was) I make a "batch" of different sized snowflakes all at once and then have them to pull from when I need them. You will discover how to get different colors by using different base papers and different sponging.

There is so much going on next week! I have a card to finish for the Copic Creations challenge (tomorrow! Yikes!). Monday is a Magnolia-licious Blog Hop that we hope you will attend! Wednesday is an Angel's Landing blog hope with NEW digital releases and Thursday is a Mo's digital Pencil Design Team blog hop! Wow! I'd better get going!

Have a wonderful Saturday! I'm remembering to be grateful for all my blessings today and I count you among them!
