Clarinet boy

I haven't been lost, it is just that I have been spending my days off traveling to visit my mother-in-law who is home from the nursing home, but is no longer driving.  She has needed assistance to go to appointments last week and run errands.  We went twice last week and once this week.  She is doing wonderfully with all the obstacles that she has faced.  I give her a lot of credit because she is a very determined lady to remain independent.  It is just funny that when I go places with her and my husband I don't know which one will function better.  They each have their canes and I have to keep an eye on both of them it is like walking in between two bowling pins. LOL.

I made this card for my brother-in-law, Ted who is a clarinet player.  I thought it was great that Sassy Cheryl had an image of a male clarinet player so it is perfect for his birthday which is Thursday.  This weeks challenge is "For the Boys" so that will also work out well.  The sentiment is from TLC, Create.  My second card is using this weeks Splitcoast color challenge and a beautiful sentiment from TLC, Create.  This can be found here  TLC, Create
