TrainSpotting - Stitchy Stamps

Good afternoon crafters and followers.  Gosh it has been an awful day here in West Midlands.  Got up early to do our shopping (I hate food shopping when it is busy) and had to delay going because we had a terrible thunderstorm and I didn't want to leave our dog, Enya during the storm.  It pelted down with serious thunder and lightening.  Luckily it passed over after about 20 minutes, but it has been raining on and off all day.  Sods law isn't it now the evening has come around the sun is out and we have blue skies.  Still a little chilly though.  Honestly english weather!
Well my post today is a little boys card which was made as a DT sample for the challenge over at My Craft Creatoins.
