Card for a Male

One of my decisions this year is to just craft for the sake of it - my life is incredibly busy both in respect of family, work and my other interests so I have made a decision to step down from a couple of design teams recently. I will miss them dreadfully and my fellow DT friends but life is full of changes and you have to embrace the changes so with that in mind I have made a card just because I felt like crafting and here it is:-

Everything on this card is inked, stencilled, stamped or painted.  The only thing not "made" is the torn up pieces of map and the 8x8 base card. Stamps used are Creative Expressions, Crafty Individuals and Elusive Images. Distress inks used are:- Tea dye, Faded Jean and Tumble Glass. I added tiny watch parts to my locomotive engine.  I would like to enter the following challenges:-

I may give this card to my youngest son who turns 20 on Tuesday as he is what could be called a bit of genuis and his strange ways certainly make me perspire lol.  Suzanne ~x~

I love this, Suzanne... I'm sure your DTs will miss you, but I do applaud the sentiment of leaving yourself time to craft in a way that makes you happy. And this card would make me very happy!
