Snowflakes Make Me Smile! Day 9 of the S&S 12 Days of Christmas

4 Years ago today, I became a Mom. My son Phoenix was born at 8:32PM. What an incredible night it was. I cannot believe that he is 4 years old. HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!! I love you, my son!!!

I have an super simple card to share today. Don’t we all need that sometimes? Super simple? Even though it’s easy, it’s pretty damn adorable!

Snowflakes-Snowman-1

I used a single stamp (Stamps Happen, Inc.) and colored it in with my colored pencils. Some plaid paper, a touch of black for some punch, and voila! Finished!

Snowflakes-Snowman-2

Isn’t he sweet? I love his patches! I know this is a short post today, but there is a lot going on… So now you can go and check out the rest of the Jolly Bloggers, posted on my sidebar. Have an inspiring day!!!
