Another just because make.........D

I have not made a card for an absolute age but tonight I wanted to put one together.  Maybe it is because I received my new stamps through the post yesterday.  That'll be it lol.

I am not a lover of making men's cards either so determined I was to make one!

The stamps used are by Katzelkraft.  I do love their stamps and am getting quite a collection of them.  In other words I buy far too many lol.  I can hear that statement echoing throughout the entire crafting world!

I used cream hammered card as the basis.  I wiped over the hammered surface using TH distress ink.  I then stamped the plane and car over the background.  I stamped the man on his bike on another piece of inked card and distressed the edges.  I cut round the stamped car and placed over top the base edge of the layer.  I used my trusty old Birthday stamp to finish it off.  As the French would say ..... Voila!

I hope you have enjoyed your visit and will pop back again sometime
