Also received your card, suzotchka ... You should have your card in a few days too. :)
In other news... finally made an animated snow icon that works okay and is under 40kb in size. It's really tougher to do than I imagined with Animation Shop. Took a screencap from A Very Supernatural Christmas... I couldn't resist. Heeeeee. :D Hopefully it's not too spoilery. I did make one that would match up with my header a bit more but I have to tweak it a bit to get it under 40kb. I figured this was a nice one to use in the Christmas season.
Thanks to stargazercmc for the tips :)
