Muscle man

Good afternoon to all my friends and followers today. I hope your weekend is going well so far. In typical UK style it's red hot and sunny today but the forecast for our family BBQ tomorrow is mostly rain! We never can seem to plan one to fit in with the weather at all but we don't let it stop us.
I managed to sit at my craft table last night for a fair while and have a bit of a play with some new images and I've got to get some leaving cards made ready for school next week too so guess I will be busy for the next few evenings too.
This card today I made for my son's birthday-he's really into his gym and is doing a bit of body building at the minute too as he wants to build up his arms so I looked around for some clipart and found this which I thought was quite fun.
I used some papers from my stash which matched the colours on the image and I decoupaged the weights and added some stars at the top. The 'son' wording was made with my X cut alphabet set and the sentiment was computer generated:

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:

Naughty or Nice #17 -seeing stars
The Male Room #14-song title (Diana Ross Muscle)
Fab N Funky #267-song title (Diana Ross Muscle)
Crafty Boots -stars or stripes
Love to Scrap #57 -triple play (stars)
That's Crafty -wish upon a star
Papertake Weekly -anything goes
Crafts for Eternity # R234-sport

Well thank you so much for popping by today and for any comments you wish to leave.
I hope you all enjoy the rest of your weekend.
Until next time.
