Snowmen After Dark


Hello everyone.....hope you are having a wonderful day!!! I finished my Christmas decorating yesterday....my tree isn't naked any longer!!! I was going to start on my Christmas cards this morning but when I saw what colors Betty picked for the Color Challenge on Splitcoast and I just had to make a card!! The colors are Rich Razzleberry, Barely Banana, and Always Artichoke.
I also had to make a card for da Mudder's Teapot Tuesday challenge hosted by Lisa (lisa lara). Lisa is taking us to the North Pole and we will be staying in a guest house right next to Santa's workshop...Whoohoo!!! She has challenged us to find out what snowmen and snowwomen do at night. Well folks, I found out the skinny on the snowpeople, for sure!!! They roast marshmallows and sell Smores to earn their Christmas money!!! Oh, btw, we would need to use the back door if we had yellow snow so I was real careful to find some clean white Sparkly Fluff for my snow. The Rubbernecker snowmen image was colored with copics and the sky was colored with pastels. The plastic snowflake and bow with the button finish it off.
Recipe:
Stamps: Rubbernecker Snowmen
Paper: Rich Razzleberry, Always Artichoke, Barely Banabas, SU dp, White
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black
Accessories: Ribbon, Button, Floss, Plastic snowflake, Foam tape, Copics, White Sparkly Fluff, Pastels
Thanks for visiting today......have a great day and stay wam!!!
