Snowmen and Toasters Don't Mix . . . Teapot Tuesday Mystery

The inspectors are CLUE-less as you can plainly see, searching high and low for the culprit to help Inspector Clousseau . . . to no avail. Yet . . . their playing cards could provide a clue were they only to look up!!! Innocent snowman by day . . . sinister character by night? Butter wouldn't melt in his mouth! (well no, he is frozen). And WHY is he carrying a toaster (plugged IN too, in case you didn't see the cord!) near figures made of frozen . . .water!?! (Sorry, unlike Marilyn Preston, the most lethal stamp I own is a toaster. :) But it works with snowmen). Someone warn them before it is too late. I think its time for a cup of tea . . .alone! These teapot tuesday tea parties are getting tooooo dangerous!

Now, I know I'll never be able to send this card to anyone, but I was laughing while I made this. Hope it might make you smile. I created this in response to the challenge for Mothermark's Teapot Tuesday. For more information on the Teapot Tuesday challenges, look for Mothermark's blog on my side bar under dork sisters.

The Midnight Madness Sketch Challenges (this card is a little out there!!!) can be found here. Thanks for looking.

Good Grief Peggysue! This is the cutest snowman card I ever laid my eyes on. The colors, the joy...everything about it...I LOVE IT!

Joanne (jojot) said...

what an adorable card....and a likely story....guess if you are going to do bad things, a snowman would be a good thing to be...when you are done causing trouble you can just melt and disappear....maybe I could try that.......lol

Hi PeggySue, Unlike Priscilla I do love snowmen....they are cute and you can dress them how you like...but you'd better be quick before they melt!
Love the sense of humor with this card...you teapot Tuesday ladies are funny! Enjoyed reading this one.
Great job with the sketch!
Thanks for playing along.

No smiles here, I was laughing out loud! Everyone thinks I am a little crazy. This is just too funny.

Karen Lynn said...

I love the row of snowman. Where did you find that stamp??

Where did you find such a mean little snowman?? Oh, I don't like him.

Kay said...

You are crazy, yes? I think you should send this card to someone - with no explanation - and see what happens!!

The Mama Monkey said...

OMW this is so funny! You should totally send it to someone! Love it!

Carol said...
