I made this for Mothermark's Teapot Tuesday Challenge which is hosted this week by lisa lara. We were to make a card showing what snowmen do at night. I used this week's Sketch Challenge for this card as well. Here's their story:
Did you ever go to the mountains or even in your own neighborhood, if you have snow, and somehow lose a stocking cap, hat, glove, scarf, etc.??? Did your kids do that? Well, the snowpeople (politically correct this time) collect all those lost articles of clothing. Didn't you know that??? At night, when we're not looking, they play Dress-Up!! This particular group even has enough in their collection to be color coordinated!!
Thanks to lisa lara for a great challenge this week!! Thank you, Roxie, for another great sketch!! Thanks to everyone for taking a peek!!

Hee. You know the other day I went to the store, it was very cold, and I reached in my pocket to find only one glove. Hmmmm....... Guess somewhere out there, there is a snowperson with a pink glove. Hee. Your card is sooooo cute. I love the tag too. Great discovery CarrolAnn. So happy you made it. Love how you used Roxie's sketch.

What a fun idea. It reminds me, in the opposite way, of an old Flanders and Swann song which talks about the men who go and leave single wellington boots in ponds. Lovely frame, and perfect sentiment to go with the snowmen. Sorry, I just find it hard to say snowpeople. Sometimes it's obvious that they are snow-women :D. Love that frame - is that the new punch?
