Oh Boy, it's Christmas

The theme this week at Lili's Little Fairies is Boys Christmas and I need all the practice I can get at cards for men, so here's the results of today's efforts!  I just kept the embellishments to a minimum, and the colours quite masculine.  I've had the embroidery thread for ages and don't tend to use it much. It seems a bit more masculine than my usual ribbon, so I thought it worked well.  The image is also one of my older LOTV images, but I think it's great for the boys.

What do you think?

While I've got your attention, there's a fab 10% off the new Poppy Dies at The Stamp Basket and it lasts until 9am on Friday 5th October.  Pop over there to grab yourself a bargain.  Take a look at the new dies, I just LOVE the antique lamp post, isn't it gorgeous.
