The World is Yours - A Man Card

Hello dear visitors and welcome to my blog.  Hope you are having a wonderful day.

I'm here to share another man card with you.   
A lot of you have said that you really don't enjoy making these but, funnily enough, I actually do.   Maybe it's because I do make a lot of pretty, girly cards and, doing these is a nice change from that.  Besides, I really don't have much choice as I need to make quite a few during the year for the male side of my family and friends.  They would be upset if I only made cards for the female side and, honestly, you can't upset the blokes can you??  Not worth the hastle!!  LOL!!

The papers are all old ones from my stash.  I think these are mostly by Kaisercraft although there could be some different brands as well.  I'm not really sure, as I've been pulling them out of their paper pads looking for ones that match, without taking much notice of brand names. 
Added a little piece of an old 2Crafty Chippie just to fill the corner ..
.. and also popped in a few prills here and there.
Found a page of cut aparts and postcards which came in handy to create this small collage ..
.. and the clocks are printables from the net.
Popped a small metal trinket in between the layers just for fun ..
.. and decorated the inside as well.
Inked the edges of the papers with Ground Espresso Distress ink and also distressed them with my scissors. 
Fairly simple and easy peasy to put together.   Just the way I like it!!  LOL!!

I have made, and am still making, more cards similar to this one and, hopefully, I will be sharing them over the next few weeks. 
Thank you so much for stopping by and thank you for any lovely comments you may care to leave.  They are very much appreciated.

Have a wonderful day!!
Take care and God Bless.
