Hello, it's Monday again, it comes round so quickly. I hope you’re all OK and have had a lovely weekend.
It is time for another theme over on the House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge, this time it was our lovely Stacy's turn to choose the theme and she chose "Flower Power or Flour Power" - You can either use a mouse with flowers or cooking flour.   I decided on this stamp KR1050 Lilac Bouquet, as I was going with Flowers, I don't have a House Mouse stamp with Flour on.
Of course you must use a House Mouse, Happy Hopper or Gruffie to join in.

Thanks for looking, the DT have all made gorgeous cards for your inspiration so hop on over to the HM&F Monday Challenge to see them.

WARNING:- Bragging Mum Moment
Yesterday it was presentation day at the Hunslet Boys Club where my youngest son Bobby plays football, It is a large club and do lots of different sports and activities, the football covers ages 3-15 years.  Bobby plays for the under 7's, each child got a medal then each year group had two Trophies, one was for Player Of The Year and the other was Sportsman Of The Year.  Bobby won Sportsman Of The Year, which we was not expecting, he isn't the best player in the team but this is what his coach said when announcing his win:-

"This player deserves this Trophy as he always has a smile on his face, gets straight back up and plays on when injured or knocked down. He likes to have a laugh and makes the team laugh and have fun too in training. And most of all I can give him any position to play and he can do it and gives 100% "

That is true about the positions as Bobby had a match this morning, and he started his game in defence, then moved into left wing (even though he is right footed) when that player went off with his asthma, then there was an injury and Bobby was then moved into mid field.  So in the full game he'd played three different positions, his coach said to us after the game that Bobby is one of his most valued players as he slots into any position and can play them all and none of the other children can do that.

This is a close up at our table, a very proud boy

Bobby is the one in the middle just after receiving his trophy, I was way back and had to zoom in to get this photo, so it's not very good.

What a little star Bobby is, you must be so proud Tracy and quite justifiably so, I bet a little lump came into your throat at the presentation. Could Leeds next bid name be waiting to be discovered ?

And what a very pretty card, lots of lovely flowers and what a sweet HM image as well.
