When searching for an image suitable for the current challenge at the Male Room I realised that I should look through my digital CDs much more frequently because as well as finding something suitable for their 'Games' theme I also found just the thing for my son's birthday card which I'd been struggling with.  His will be the next male card I make in time for his birthday mid month.  Obviously this card had to be male themed and could include anything related to any game - I've chosen golf which I know is played by women too but then so are most games.  Their design team have chosen a selection of games and I expect there will be a great variety amongst the submissions.
