Henry is helping me get ready for Christmas this year; I think he wants lots of sparkly decorations, so I'll oblige him since he is the happiest mouse that I know.

I put him in 2 different layouts using CTMH dp. Nothing fancy; just showcasing Henry, in all his cuteness.
He is super fun to color, and it is very exciting to add glitter on to the Christmas ornament, too.

Stamp...Henry with Christmas Bauble (Whiff of Joy)
Ink...Tuxedo Black (Memento)
Paper...Solar White, Natural White (Neenah); Lipstick Red (Gina K.); Mistletoe dp (Close to my Heart)
Misc...Classic & Scallop Circles Nesties (Spellbinders), Scallop border punch (Fiskars), quickie glue pen (Sakura), Dazzling Diamonds (Stampin Up!), Copics

Summertime Vintage Picnic

I've never been too excited about Fall and autumnal colors (orange just doesn't do it for me). I keep trying, but it's not as exciting as Spring and Summer, and I just can't get inspired to make those cards.

So, I thought I'd post some summery cards today, made with PTI's "Vintage Picnic" set. I think the first one was CASEd from Nicole Heady here.

The others are just variations of her design. The daisies and strawberries really remind me of a summer picnic, although I've never taken strawberries to a picnic, they just seem "picnic-y"...

Happy Birthday

Sunshine again today! I thought I'd post a happy card today in honor of our 2 days of sunshine (it's a big deal out here in the Northwest). It's also a cause to photograph some cards without artificial light.

I made this one with Whiff of Joy's "Henry with Muffin." Something about Henry just makes me smile. And he is also super fun to color.

Had to add some stickles to the cupcake top, for Anastasia.

Paper.....Solar White (Neenah), Sunflower (Prism), Teal (Unknown), Thrift Shop (October Afternoon)
Stamps.....Henry with Muffin (Whiff of Joy), Birthday Wishers (Amuse)
Ink..........Tuxedo Black (Memento)
Misc........Classic and Scalloped circle nestabilities (Spellbinders), border punch (EK Success), Diamond Stickles, Copic markers
