Mo's dp 2 challenge dt and some sad news

We have another great challenge on Mo's challenge blog today and its one of those that most of us shy away from " Masculine"
Well i gotta admit that this is always a challenge for me, i am never sure what to add to masculine cards so i tend to try and keep them rather simple.  for my card this week i decided to use Johan, and sure he is gonna come in real handy soon as its my sons birthday on the 1st July.  My son is also quite the guitarist, or should i say, he likes to think of himself as quite the guitarist, does it count if they play the guitar using that programme for the tv, not sure what its called, lol.
Anyway i just gotta add here that it really doesnt matter what Mo image i use, i LOVE them all!
I saw the MS punch used on my friend Barb's card and thought i GOTTA have it, so now that i do own one, i seem to be using the thing to death as you may have noticed it on a few of my cards recently.
The panel that has the music notes on is a stamp from one of the local stamping companies, unfortunately i dont know which.  Also the little guitar charm was from my charm stash and loved that it fitted in with this image, as i said not many things can be added to men's cards so this works for me.
Enough gabbing, i am off for coffee with a friend this morning so will catch you later
The sad news is that our talented dt sistah Sheila has decided to step down from Mo's challenge team, she has been on the team since the very begining and it is so sad to see her go, i would like to wish her every happiness and success in whatever future ventures she takes on.
