I had really hoped we were in the process of growing up in this country (USA) and the world.
I thought we had all finally seen that a little nudity is just that a little nudity and extreme violence and war are the pornographic things in our society?
They're blowing people up and killing kids in BOSTON but there are people who have the time to make an issue out of something that should only be making smiles.
WARNING: There's a bare breast in the following vintage photo and the sentiment may be a little too spicy for some so view with that warning OK-otherwise just click off NOW!!!!
As you know I give an award that's called RICK'S PICK for cards that use my digital images beautifully-today I am giving the award to FIONA of I DON"T DO STRAIGHT LINES for her funny but tasteful entry in the SMEARED AND SMUDGED BLOG HOP.
The theme is DIRTY and VINTAGE and clearly says that entries can be grundged up or can actually be "Dirty" in the smutty sense.
Several of my design team entered-we love to play at SNS.
BUT there's always one who has to slap a wet blanket on things-and to be TOTALLY FAIR AND HONEST, Fiona did enter her card in a challenge outside the hop zone-My EDT did as well and I think Moniques card has a bare breasted she-devil---anyway the host of the blog decided to lay into FIONA in a comment but also called out ALL the women who had commented about the card and said it was a good project, a little naughty and well done---they were cowards in her eyes----you need to visit Fiona's blog and read the comment---so 1950 PTA.
Of course many of the artists and designers who follow these sorts of things and love SNS flew to Fiona's defense and I hope you'll agree it's a tempest in a teapot:This card is well done and fine as it is!
Here's the TERRIBLY OFFENSIVE card:
CARD by FIONA of I DONT DO STRAIGHT Blog
LESS offensive than most comedians material and far less nudity than an episode of Game of Thrones.
Fiona you deserve an award for being straight up honest and brave so your card is my RICK'S PICK for this week!!!
