It's A Man Thing

I love 'manly' themes! My man's thing is exploring, by hot air balloon! Oh, the adventures he has had, the stories he has told. He visited Paris on one of his hot air balloon trips, but I can't possibly tell you what he got up to when he landed right on the Champs Elysees -




For the background I used a piece of light blue paper from an old dismantled book. The stamp is a very old one I found at a brocante not long ago. Cut out the Eiffel Tower and my man, added a vintage cigar band, and cut the title of a story out of a 1910s Je Sais Tout magazine. Oh, and added a little watch face to the hot air balloon basket. Just because.

Can't wait to see what manly tags you all come up with this week.
