If you want to see the entire hop - 
head on over to Lori's blog 
where it all begins!

Our theme this month is
 Let's hear it for the boys!

For my card I used the For Our Men set from CDS.
This is the perfect guy stamp set. 

I stamped the hammer in black ink and
 colored it with colored pencil. 
I enhanced the handle of the hammer with
 a black glaze pen and then enhanced the
  dots with a white gel pen.

The background paper is from Fancy Pants.
I used circle and oval nestabilities.
