…an old man in a battered hat…

Seems it’s the month for birthdays at work, this time I needed one for a guy so I’ve gone with Gandalf, a rubber stamp from Kraftin’ Kimmie.

Not sure what it is about Kraftin’ Kimmie stamps but I only ever want to do the no lines technique with them, weird right, when I ordinarily use digis and do the lines technique.  I haven’t just used a Kraftin’ Kimmie stamp but I’ve also used their current sketch to make up my card so I’m entering it in their current challenge, where the theme is to decorate the inside.  This was easy for me, it's something I always do using the same paper from the outside to line the inside and this time I added in a clock stamp to tie in with the quote about time on the front.

Over at DiesRUs they are looking for male projects and this is certainly that, hence the browns and blues, the image choice and the recipient being very much a man.  I’ve also got the requisite die cut, four (three different kinds) actually, so I’m entering my card in the challenge.

Seems it’s the season for male themed projects as they are also the theme at Crafting Musketeers so I am also linking my card over there.
