Men are Like Crossword Puzzles

Today is Unity's DT Blog Hop and as Guest Designer this month I have the pleasure of participating in it.  If you aren't starting from the beginning, then be sure to head back to the Unity blog to make it through the whole list of those posting today!  My post for today is for the ladies out there having a rough time with that man in their lives!  It would probably be better if any men who read my blog would just hop over to the next blog! You might not want to see this!   LOL!!

Disclaimer:   I am not a man hater!  I love my husband and am not in any way trying to be disrespectful to men.....

But, with that said, I think you all can agree that we have come across men in our lives that fit the solutions to this crossword puzzle!  Am I right??


ACROSS
1. Pretentious
7. Foolish (slang)
8.  Excessive wanting of Affection
11.  Adult Male Person

DOWN
2. Stupid Person





The card I created is perfect to give to that BFF in your life who is having MAN problems.  It will let her know that you are on her side... that women stick together, and that you understand her frustrations!  I mean seriously, men can be frustrating some times!



Carrie from Sex in the City said it best....

Men in their forties are like the New York Times Sunday Crossword Puzzle:...

(Then on the Inside)


"...tricky, complicated, and you're never really sure you got the right answer."



Now isn't that the truth ladies??



The stamps I used today come from two Unity sets!  The crossword puzzle is in the November KOM   shown below...




and the pretty flourish border stamp is from the November Scrapbooking Kit shown here...



Other Supplies Used:
DP: Scenic Route; CS: Bazzill; Ink: Amuse: Black; SU: Lavendar Lace; Flowers: Prima; Brad: Doodlebug; Machine stitching.



Don't miss out on the Garage Sale going on over at the Unity Blog today!

All Kits of the Month are $35 and selected stamp sets will be 50% off!! 
Woohoo!!
And be sure to check out what the rest of the DT has created for you too!



Have a wonderful rest of the day and may your bucket be overflowing with women in your life that love and support you!

Cute card!

dclouser said...

Great card! However, I have to say as one who is married to a man in his 50's that men actually are very simple. We women are the complicated ones. If we meet their most "basic needs" they are happy campers! (Took me awhile to figure this out but it sure has been great ever since!)

Faith B. said...

Actually, I thnk my daughter could use a card like this right now, after an engagement broken off by her "X" just 7 weeks before the wedding ( after the planning for just over a year!!UGH) and then meeting alot of men described by your words!! LOL
Thank you for the inspiration!!
