Huggable Henry!

I just love these Henry images! He is so cute, huggin' his heart! I didn't use nearly all of the Christmas ones they made! I wish there wasn't holly on all of them so they could be used for winter cards.
Sorry, that's a bit off topic!

Another love is Cosmo Cricket papers! And my new love-SEWING on cards! It's so fun to see the results! Mine isn't always straight, but it makes me happy!

Henry is colored with my copic markers, of course in W1, W3, W5 and W7 and then a little E31. The heart is R14, R24, R46.

I emboss my nestability and while still in the die I use a 1" stencil brush to swirl color on lightly. The colors I used on this one are Aqua mist and then some Distress Vintage Photo to dull the Aqua.

I was really stuck for embellishments-no good match in the flowers that I had and there was no good match in card stock so back to the Cosmo line I went and cut hearts from my nestabilities and cardboard to make my own chipboard embellishments! The red one is raised on dimensionals.

That's about it for this one! Thanks so much for stopping by today and for your comments! Another valentine tomorrow! Have a great day!

Cheryl
