Its a Man Thing

Thats the theme over at the Tag Tuesday blog this week. I like 'manly' themes and I had great fun making this tag. My man is an adventurer, a rather well known explorer, and his 'thing' is travelling around in his hot air balloon. Oh, the exciting life he has led, the stories he has told! You should hear what happened when he travelled to Paris one time, and landed his hot air balloon right in the middle of the Champs Elysees, but I can't possibly repeat that story in this fine company ;-) -




For the background I used a piece of light blue paper from an old book which had fallen apart. The stamp is a lovely old office stamp 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 for fun.

And now its back to work for me. Just posted over at my vintageland blog re the new items which will be listed tonight and tomorrow, so I had better get cracking with the packing ;-).
