For the several years now my sons have decided not to shave in the month of November.
Honestly, I’m not entirely sure why they do it but I do know that there are two (maybe more) groups who promote NOT shaving as a way to draw attention to mens health. One is Movember and the other No Shave November.
When Jen Good of 100 Directions asked me to participate in a blog hop she was planning to launch her new Rollograph stamp wheels with Clearsnap she said I could choose between a pink ribbon for an October breast cancer awareness post or mustaches for a November mens health awareness post. I knew that I wanted to create something with the mustache stamp in honor of my three sons.
I had fun playing around with the mustache stamp and created a couple of fun, super simple, holiday cards for the guys on my list.
So now I’m wondering…
Do you like a guy with facial hair or no?
