Paula said...

Delightful vivacity you've coloured into this image - he/she really is bouncing along making feetmarks on that stamp. I like the uncomplicated surround too with that touch of glitter to draw the eye in.
I too have a fair amount of rubber that I've not got round too - you're not alone.
