Side step card

It's a while since I've had the time to do any challenges properly so I thought I would have a go with the Daring Cardmakers challenge this week. However, I've incorporated last weeks challenge too.......two birds, one stone!! lol
"We thought the perfect title for a challenge with prizes like these was:

and we'd like to see cards for Little Boys or Teenage Boys
(but not "Grown-Up" boys this time!)"
"It's Jo here today with a dare;

A-Bunting We Will Go!

There seems to be an abundance of bunting everywhere at the moment and I expect more will appear soon in honour of the World Cup! I thought that it would be fun this week to add some bunting to our cards..."
My great nephew will be 5 next week so I thought both challenges suited a card for his birthday.

The image is from The Stamping Boutique coloured with Promarkers. The letters and the sentiment are rub ons from Papermania (why is it that some rub ons just don't want to leave the backing sheet and just make a mess on your work?!) Papers are old ones by Doodlebug and the large number 5 was cut by hand.

Time for a moan now...DH went to the supermarket yesterday then on to pick up my parents (cos dad still can't drive following his hip op) as they were coming for lunch. Dad was helping mum into the back of the car when he noticed that some kind *person* has hit our new (to us) car!!! Part of the passenger side rear door handle has been broken off and the door has a small dent in it and paint has been scraped off the wheel arch. We don't actually know when it happened or where but I was in the car for quite a while on Saturday and never noticed it. The most annoying thing is that we've had the damn car for 2 weeks tomorrow!!! Why are these people so rude? What's wrong with sticking a note of apology and contact details under a windscreen wiper if you can't hang around? What give them the right to go round damaging people's property without a care in the world? It happened to the old car too, a couple of weeks after we got that. Someone either caught it with a trolley or caught it when they reversed out of a parking space. We were in B & Q at the time!   It makes my blood boil :(

Rant over now, thanks for looking.
