Penny Black Saturday Challenge - male card without blue!!!

This was one of those challenges that you think, oh no, I'm not going to be able to come up with anything for this. I couldn't see any "male" PB stamps in my lot, so started thinking about maybe a xmas card, but then remembered this little stamp that I had.
I then spent the only 25 minutes or so that I had free today while the kids were otherwise occupied (after I did an 11 mile run!!) making a quick card, and am quite pleased with the results. I used my sizzix texturz to emboss some brown cardstock, used my cropodile to add some eyelets, then found some lovely fluffy yarn in my stash. I have never really got on with using Sansodor, but I used some Stampin' Up cardstock to stamp the image, and Oh Wow - it's sooooo good and easy to use on that card!!! (If you want to order any SU stuff please contact me!!)
I decoupaged the image - made the presents 3D, not sure if you can see this in the pic, and added a stamped greeting.
Hope you like. Not sure who I'm going to give it to, though!
