Santa Loves His Ho's

When I showed Angela (my daughter) this card, the first thing she said was "I saw a t-shirt with a picture of Santa on it that said "Santa Loves His Ho's". I know the punctuation is wrong, but Hos just looks odd. Anyway, gotta love her sense of humor, and if this card wasn't for a swap, that would be the line I'd put inside all of them. My family is twisted. They'd get it.

This is the replacement card for the swap cards I lost (well, I just lost one of them, but that was enough to make me have to start over). The image is SU! from the holiday mini. Love him. The colors are Purely Pomegranate, with some Sky Blue around Santa (so he isn't on stark white). The base is a shimmer white, not SU! The piece I cuttlebugged was painted first with a pearl medium and PP reinker, then with acrylic varnish and PP reinker to add more color, then coated with heavy gel medium to cut the stickiness. The ribbon is SU! (also PP), and Santa is colored with inks and blender pen. His face was done with Groovy Guava, which turns out is quite close to the skin tone of a caucasian. Used the tag corner punch too.

My daughter said I should do a naughty Santa swap. I wonder how many sick and twisted people would find that as funny as I would.
