Man oh Man!

Making a birthday card for a man can be difficult! For that matter so is buying a birthday gift for a man or a Chritstmas present, or finding the right screw driver to deliver when they are working on something! I suppose there is no reason that a birthday card would be any different! There are a few safe bets in our families though, but man oh man, has it taken years to figure out!

Anything fishing related is a hit! If they are sports fans, ANYTHING with their team on it will do, tissue box covers, towels, flower pots, tooth brushes, tee shirts, shoes, toilet seats... it doesn't matter! Men that have a "team" don't actually know that they don't play for that team and won't be compensated for buying everything with their teams mascot or colors. You wouldn't believe the ridiculous Carolina blue things I have laid eyes on, but if you have ever met a Carolina fan, you can surely imagine!

We figured if we apply these same rules to the cards for men we would be safe! Anything fishing, and anything that goes with their team! This rule of thumb won't be helpful when searching for the right screwdriver, but it might make that masculine card making a little less frustrating!

This is my brand new stamp from Lili of the Valley called, "Gone Fishing."
It can be found in the "Boys'" category. 

This card is being entered into The Stamping Boutique Birthday Challenge.
