Santa Claus comes tonight...

Hi guys!

Bet'cha thought I had frozen into an ice statue what with being MIA these past few days. While it is still feeling very sub-Arctic out there I've managed to stay fairly warm and cozy though I'm currently a bit under the weather... bleh. Luckily I've got a couple days off to try and kick this thing. 

As for today's card, I have a cousin and he and his wife just had their first baby this year so I had to pull out this sweet Baby's First Christmas stamp from Lili of the Valley and make them something special. I paired him up with papers from the Simple Stories Handmade Holiday collection. Even though it was released a couple years ago it is still one of my all time favorite Christmas lines. The cut apart designs especially make for quick and easy cards that look like I put a lot more work into them than I actually did. ;)

Well, I'm going to go take some Dayquil and see how the day goes.
TTYL!

I know for me when you're missing, I worry about your mom. Don't want you sick either though. Stay warm and get well.

Love this little boy, so sweet. Great texture on his reindeer.
