Circle of Snowflakes...

Hello!  Today I have a card using my snowflakes embossing folder.  I used silver ink to rub across the raised snowflakes and added some rhinestones to the centers of some of the snowflakes.  The circle is Pacific Point and so is the ink used to stamp my sentiment.  The sentiment is from The Stamps Of Life set, Christmas2build.  I added some silver cording to finish it off.

It has a been a crazy, busy week of kids activities every night.  We have a family birthday and friend birthday this weekend still to go! I am ready to put my jammies on and curl up on the couch and watch football.  Sometimes the simplest of things are oh, so comforting!

My boys birthdays are not until spring, but at what age do you stop having big, huge birthday extravaganzas?  Just curious, as to what you all do.  Obviously, I still have quite a few years for the twins, but not sure about Will.  He will be eleven.  I can't even remember when I stopped having big birthday parties as a child.  I guess I should keep having them until he says no, right?

Hope you are having a wonderful weekend. Thanks for stopping by,

Emily
