I adore the Henry Mouse character from Whiff of Joy. Whenever I see his precious little face, I just want to squeeze him! Stamper's Dream carries a wonderful selection of Whiff of Joy images, including quite a few of these Henry Mouse cuties. Here I've used Henry Mouse Hugging Heart, a Penny Black sentiment, and some papers from the Be-Loved collection by My Mind's Eye to make a bright and cheery Valentine card. I colored with Copics (mostly) and Prismacolor pencils, trimmed out Henry and popped him up once. The layout is Jen's Sketch For You To Try. Check out what these SFYTT sisters put together with the same sketch:

(Amy Rohl and Susan Liles are sitting out this week)
I couldn't get enough of either Henry or the fun sketch, so I did another one using Henry Mouse with Christmas Bauble.
This particular Henry is no longer available at Stamper's Dream, but you can check out all the other cute Henrys HERE. Coloring is with Copics and Prismacolors. The papers are from the Bissette pack by SEI. I keep telling myself I will *not* buy any more of the large 12x12 paper collections from Michael's/JoAnn's/ACMoore, since I have a hard enough time putting a dent in packs a quarter of their size, but the other day, I ended up bringing home three of them - yikes! I have a serious paper issue! Anyone else??
I'm going to hurry up and post this while I still have power. My part of Virginia has close to a foot of snow already and I think this might be just the beginning. That's a LOT for us!
Thanks for stopping by today!
