Austin Mini Cooper Man Card my 100th post

 Good afternoon to all my lovely friends and followers and a special welcome to my new follower on Google + Emma. I've finally gotten round to doing this post the weekend seems to have passed me by and I did do a lot of crafting but some of it was commissions that I cannot post at present. The card I'm posting today is a man card yes a man card. I made it a few weeks ago not decided on a recipient yet but have a few male birthdays coming up. The stamp is a one I've used before but it does make a good man card especially if they like cars or have ever owned an old style mini.
