Manly Monday from the Mini

 I don't know about you, but sometimes I start a card and don't know how to finish it.  This card has been sitting on my desk for quite sometime (notice the retired DSP).  I never quite figured out the stamped image that I wanted to put on it.  When I got to the point that the image was missing, I realized that it was far manlier than I was expecting and I couldn't find "just the right stamp".  When my new Motorcycle stamp arrived on Friday it was the first thing to cross my mind:)  I'm thrilled with how it finished the card and didn't even need any watercolouring, although I can't wait to try that with this stamp as well!  Only 19 more days until this beauty is available in the new Summer Mini!
