Cards for Men #1

Good morning everyone. What a fab day I had yesterday crafting with friends. The journey home was a bit hairy but I made it safely. It was hoizontal sleeting for all of the 50 mile trip!
Anyway this is one of the three cards I managed to make amid all the chinwagging, laughter and retail therapy :o) It is for the first Cards for Men challenge over at
If you haven't seen their blog yet go and have a look and give them a big welcome to the challenge scene :o)
Oh how I cried again when I cut into my gorgeous MME glittercard for this, but I like the result well enough :o) A bit more MME for the larger mat and the smaller mat is unkown paper from stash. A bit of red card from PDA stamped with snowflakes for the main panel and I stamped the Santa Collage with Tim Holtz distress ink. stamped greeting, a scrap of ribbon and 'Bob's your Uncle' one man Christmas card. Oh and I must not forget my lovely Nesties :o)
