A Few Male Cards

Good Morning blogger friends.  I seemed to be confused as mojo is gone a holiday or something.  What terrible mixed weather  we have here,  we had cold, sleet and hailstones showers, heavy rain and sunshine within days.  Yesterday was warm and sunny and this morning  I think its going to be a scorcher. Last week end I just came back from a weekend in Fife and I'm going back again next weekend for a week. I hope the weather stays good. Anyway here is a few male family cards I made earlier.  I'm not entering any challenges this time so it will be a quick post.

Thank you for stopping by and have a lovely weekend.

Music Notes

Hello crafters and a warm welcome to new followers.  I hope some of  you are not too badly hit with the snow as I hardly seen snow but its bitterly, bitterly cold here.  I have made a card for my grandson's birthday. It is so hard to find a suitable image for a 9 year old so I found this image which I think its suitable. I gave him a guitar last christmas. He is on a waiting list for music lessons. I'll be having him for his Easter holidays in 2 weeks time.  Hope the weather will be warmer then as he loves playing football with me or grandad. lol. Anyway here is the card.
