Hobbies at Cardz 4 Guyz

This week at Cardz 4 Guyz we'd like to see your take on the theme of Hobbies and Pastimes - and don't forget that your card needs to be suitable for a man or boy.

I know lots of men (and women too) who are keen snooker fans, either watching it or playing it, so I decided to use a snooker image from the La Pashe CD "The best of La Pashe 2014". Instead of topping the card with it, I put it INSIDE a gatefold card, and made the outside flaps of the card look like a snooker player's waistcoat, complete with bowtie. The bowtie is a die cut, the jacket pieces were cut freehand.
