Dude, Man, Guy Card...

I love when my kids come home from school and tell me about their days and all the things that happened.  On a rare occasion, I actually hear what they learned.  One particular day my son and daughter were telling me about a new kid that just moved here.  They described him as really nice and sort of a surfer type.  The first day it was pretty cool the way he would address someone he wanted to talk to,  but after about two weeks of hearing, "Dude, Man, Guy" at the beginning of each sentence, it started to drive them a bit bonkers.  
"Dude, Man, Guy...guess what? Guess what?"  "Dude, Man, Guy.... hey wait up!"  "Dude, Man, Guy, why you walking so fast?"  "Dude, Man, Guy....hey where you guys going?"  You get the idea.    It's a small town, so the other kids have sort of broke him in now and let him know that we don't live by the beach and we never see waves and he won't be hanging 1o anytime soon, so it's okay to call them by their names.  This kid is really sweet, but it's now become a catch phrase for us when we refer to something masculine.
So, here's my Dude, Man, Guy card.
 This is Frederic chillin' in a hammock and he's part of the DT collection over at

Hello Q
This is one great Dude, Man, Guy card! You have kept the design to a minimum re embellishments so the main focus is on the image and colour work, and because you have done this so very very well it is so works.
I respect and admire all who make Man cards as I am so tragic in this area, and this is no exaggeration, I am all up for Challenging myself but Man cards are a bridge too far......
You always throw a curve ball my way when I least expect it and come up with a creation that is just plain engaging; Frederic is amazing.
