Monster Boy

Before I start rambling on about my card I just wanted to say a huge thank you to all my lovely followers and those who have left a wee comment.Group hug now!!!!lol.You truly lift my spirits when all is not well in 'the broons hoose' as my friend Dawn would say!!

Anyway I have been a busy wee bee of late hopping about mad on blogland picking up loads of inspiration and actually taking note rather than relying on memory. Which seems to fail me these days on a regular basis, way too much going on upstairs lol.Also I had been asked to make 3 commission cards so I thought this would be the ideal opportunity be a little more creative than usual. Please leave me a comment as I would love to know what you think and please be honest it's the only way I will learn.

This card came about after seeing Angela's card with this image. He is just so cute and having two wee boys myself I know he will be used many times. Please pop over to squiggle stamps you won't be disappointed, they even put in the sentiment which was a nice surprise.I would like to share with you the day I received my stamp.Normally whenever I receive any mail Arran shouts mummy Pat been aka post man pat or he will pull them out of letter box and put on kitchen table.Not today, while I was putting lewis to sleep upstairs Arran decides to open my mail (not the bill ones but my stamp parcel). He then shouts upstairs mummy look what you've got??A dinosaur stamp. Well to say I was shocked is an understatement but I was also saddened as I was so looking forward to opening my new stamp. Very childish I know but I have heard there is a child in all of us.
