A gardening guy

Cards for men are often hard to come up with unless they have a hobby, and sometimes hard to make when they do.

This bit miserable looking man (well I think he looks a bit grumpy) is another AI stamp and is such a dream to colour too. Coloured with promarkers and fussy cut. I coloured his garden hose with neon sakura pens and fussy cut that too.

The background papers are from forever friends male pad and the die cut oval frame is from a magazine freebie paper scrap.

The fun sentiment also comes with the Art Impressions stamp set. I know you don't normally have layers or designer paper on clean and simple cards but I think this still has the look of clean and simple, perfect for any man.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges;-

Simply papercrafts-anything goes

little Miss muffet-anything goes

Crafty girls creations -anything goes

The craft barn -clean and simple

That craft place -anything goes

crafty gals corner -all about the boy

Great card for a guy. You're right it is hard to make a masculine card, but you did a wonderful job.
