Bah! Humbug! #42 --- With Men In Mind

Cards for men are always a challenge for us, it seems.  So the ladies at Humbug Hall have us tackling this challenge this week.  I am sliding in under the wire this week, so I'll just get right to the card.

Mo Manning's image Little Present  came to mind to put on a card for a gal to give a guy.  In this case I added the sentiment "Got Mistletoe?" as an innocent, ahem, invitation.  The papers I used are from the Basic Grey "Mistletoe and Pears" stack that I have been using for a couple of years.  The borders are two of Martha Stewart's and layered with strips of ribbon.  I used The Deconstructed Sketch for this card, so I'm also entering it in this week's challenge over there.  

I used Copics to color the image and added a few Stickle dots to the background area. 

This was a pretty easy card to put together..... once I got to it!  It seems I am back in "catch-up mode".  But I am ever so grateful you stopped by to have a look!  Please take a moment to hop over to Bah! Humbug! to see the wonderful projects by the DT and the participants.

Just made for those pesky men's cards and that sentiment is perfect (I hope you won't mind if I 'steal' this for a card I'm making?)
Fabulous papers and dies and I love your speckled background, all in all a brilliant card sweetie!!

I will try your hard boiled egg method. lately I've been having good luck with the shells coming off easy, but I will try anything!!
