So Bugaboo has a line of Santa images that are tropical oriented and I went to look at which ones I had of the Tropical Santas. I ran across Tropical Santa Tubing. Then I got to thinking about how I could make it funny. So I created the sentiment on my computer and I'll send it to one of our Tuba Santas in town because no one else will get the joke. At least I don't think so.
The sun is a stamp from Spellbinder's called Sunny Days. I stamped it with Squeezed Lemonade and then Mustard Seed distress ink. I used the sketch from Freshly Made Sketches. I picked orange for his hat, swim suit and the base card because that's a summer color for me. Since I made his nose pink (for a bit of sunburn) I inked the sentiment with Picked Raspberry distress ink. I added some Crystal Stickles on Santa's hat. I am entering these challenges:
- Catch the Bug Holiday Chaos: day 5 make it funny
- Freshly Made Sketches: sketch
- The Outlawz CAS challenge: Christmas
- QKR Stampede: non-traditional Christmas colors
- Pile it On: non-traditional holiday colors
- AAA Cards: Christmas CAS
That's it for me today and probably into next week. I have a busy weekend. Twins coming tomorrow and I'm having dinner for some friends on Sunday. I'd love to get my Christmas cards out by next week so that's a goal for the weekend too. Thanks for stopping by and checking out my unusual Christmas card. Snow also predicted for tomorrow and the weather has turned blustery cold here. Hope you are toasty warm wherever you are! Have an awesome weekend!
Donna, love the coloring and the glitter on the hat. Thanks for joining us at the Holiday Chaos 2017 Humor Me Challenge, Lisa Lynn GDT.

Such a fun card for the intended receiver, I'm sure it'll be much appreciated:) So glad to see you participate in our Christmas chaos event over at Catch the Bug, good luck in the challenge!
Both of these cute cards made me grin! I especially love your sentiment on #1. YOur Tuba friends will definitely get a chuckle from this card, and since I'm an ex-Floridian, I also loved the Tube-ing Santa! Clever ways to use these fun images. TFS & Hugs
