For today's card I used the new "My Guy" set, which has a bunch of fun images and a few different punny sentiments.  Masculine cards are usually the most challenging for me to make (LOL, probably because I always want to add PINK somewhere), but I had a blast putting this card together! :)

Have a great one!
