Finally getting some me time!

I love having time off between the holidays, don't you? However, this mini-vacation has been riddled with stress. It started out with my being sick, and then Peter broke his leg. We are both much better, but we got off to a rocky start! With all the hustle and bustle of life in the Wolfepak, we also needed to do some re-organizing and de-cluttering around the house.
One week down, and one week left before we head back to school. Today I finally got some crafting time just for me!!! Hooray!
Most people know that I just love snowmen. That might be from my childhood in New England, and the fact that I still miss having fun in the snow. Anyway, when I saw these adorable snowmen from Magnolia stamps, I just had to get them. During my re-organization, I found some envelopes that measured 7x5. I thought that was a weird size, and they must have been donated by a friend who used to stock cards in the local grocery store. My snowmen cards fit into these envelopes perfectly!
I started with a card base that measures 7x10,and scored the cardstock at 5". The papers that I have used are from my December kit from Kit-N-Kaboodles
Specifically, it is SEI's Winter Song line, and also Bo Bunny's Snowy Serenade combined with some bazzill cardstock. The snowmen are both from Magnolia Stamps.
