A Cozy Snowman

Okay, another day that didn't start out so great. My husband went to leave for work and walked back in two minutes later because the garage door opener didn't work. Looks like it's the big coil thing at the top of the garage, not the actual opener itself. Not sure how much that is going to cost to fix...GRR. I was already planning on taking my car in to the shop today because it's acting weird but I won't be doing that since the garage guy is coming between 12 and 4. I told my 16yo (who is off school today) that if the repair man came closer to 12 that he'd have to go get my younger son from school today (they have a half day and get out at noon) and he, of course, gave me attitude about that. Yeah, cuz that's really hard to drive the two miles to get your brother. Sheesh...teenagers. Less than a month and I'll have THREE of them when Brendan turns 13. :)
Anyway, on to more fun topics Today I used this snowman from Bugaboo. I just love this line of snowmen...who am I kidding, I love all snowmen!
Isn't this paper FABULOUS!! I got it from the Cardmaker Paper Swap. I can't stop raving about how awesome the concept of a paper swap is and I do hope we make it a regular thing over there.
The card does say "Seasons Greetings" at the bottom. It's much easier to read in person.
