Ooooppppssss I'm running late for my own challenge!!!

Good morning (just lol!!!) I thought I had done my post for my challenge theme at  
this week so I decided to have a leisurely stroll around the shops after dropping Jack off at school only to discover when I got back that I hadn't done my post at all -oooppppsssss!!!!!

Oh well here I am now - better late than never as they say :-)
 and this fortnight I would like to see 


I love the idea behind our challenge blog as it really does make you think about stamps (rubber or acrylic)
that you haven't used for ages. And this is one of mine that I've had for ages and totally forgot about.
My boys love Bert & Ernie from Sesame Street and that was why I purchased this one.

 Image coloured with PM's
