Two posts in one day, what's the world coming to!
Here's a card created with Docrafts Chronology stamps that was made with a male recipient in mind. It's not like me, I know, but I have gone all clean and simple with this one. The panel was created by masking off the area to be inked and stamped. Then the iced spruce distress ink was brushed on before over-stamping in black soot ... inking only the top part of the Chronology Looking Glasses stamp to achieve the desired effect.
The heat embossed clock was fairly easy to cut out to embellish the front. I've also stamped it inside.

inks - Tim Holtz distress inks, Iced Spruce and Black Soot; VersaMark
stamps - Docrafts Urban stamp, Chronology (Looking Glasses); Chronology stamp set free with Creativity magazine; Stampin' Up, So Happy For You, stamp set

That's me done for now. I'm on nursing duty - the EM isn't feeling too good and the Boss has been sick too. Unfortunately, our old cat doesn't seem to know when she is eating too much and I treated her to a snack of chicken at lunch time - mistake!
On a happier note, I'm off to visit a few more WOYWWers before Pointless starts at 5.15pm.
