The Top 10 “Man themed stamps” you just can’t find….

Heather Engebretson Blog, Top Ten Lists 3 Comments

The top ten “man” stamps you just can’t find:

1. The only men I can count on these days are “Ben and Jerry”

2. I’m one more bad date away from being the crazy cat lady.

3. I like my coffee like my men: ground up and in the freezer.

4.It’s all fun and games till someone looses a weiner(think camping)

5. My knight in shinning amor turned out to be a dork in tinfoil.
6.Dear honey, Yes, you CAN have breakfast in bed. Just be sure to sleep in the kitchen.
7.Men and mascara; both run at the first sign of emotion.
8.Who wants a knight in shinning armor, when you can have a vampire in a Volvo!(Twilight reference)
9.Watch out for dyslexic men, they walk into bras
10.Breaking up is easy for alligators. You can just turn your ex into a purse. He always was full of crap anyway.

Which one of these do you want to see turned into a stamp? Are there some that you can think of that you would like to share?

 Here is our “Funny about Men” stamp set
