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 Scoopy's turn to choose the theme and she chose "For A Male" - I made this for my friend's son who is turning 18 this week, I was worried the image wasn't masculine enough but when I coloured it to match the Nitwit Country Gents papers, I thought it did the trick.
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.

Today's News:-
As I said on Saturday's post we were going to a football tournament.  The tournament was fabulous, the weather was great, in fact hot and sunny.  Bobby's team played 5 matches, they won 3 games and drew 2 games.  Bobby scored twice and played so well through out all five games, and at the end was totally exhausted, bless him.  They are now playing him in right wing and not defence.  He had a match last week, against a really good team who seldom looses, and the score was 4-4 and only about 7 mins to go and Bobby scored the winning goal.  So for every game today he played right wing which seems to be his new position.  We were so proud of him so here's a couple of photo's.

Morning Tracy,

Well done Bobby, he looks in very reflective mood after receiving his medal. So nice he had an interest that he enjoys so much.

Like the earthy tones of your card and the banner ides for the age is one I might have to pinch.

Tracy, your card is so darn cute, and perfect for young man. Love the browns and the plaid.
Good for Bobby, sounds like it was a long tournament, no wonder he was exhausted, but what a great outcome. Cute pic of him and his metal!! Hope your foot is healing.......
