New Squiggles Stamp

Morning everyone, just sneaking on before I head off to work.  I had a play with my new squiggles stamp and made a little boys card.  Handy, as across at Double Dutch and My Time to Craft they are both after just that!   The DP is from Daisy & Dandelion range and the green textured card is from stash. Decorated the image with some green Stickles. 

Will have to have a trip to the garage on my way home from work this evening as last night I returned home with a flat tyre.  Don't know how I did it but it was as flat as a pancake!!!.  Barry said I must have been driving with it like that for a while and didn't I notice - errrrr No! was my response as I quickly thought of me whizzing up the motorway at 70mph!!!

Happy Crafting
