Older and Wiser?

Older?
Just a tad.
Wiser?
I think...NOT!
Tiz my birthday today...WOOP! WOOP!
The card above was made by my uber talented daughter Sophie...
 
 
...and this one by the creative genius that is my son Oliver. 
As you can tell, he'd got his mitts on some of my recent craft purchases but I was amazed at what he had produced, stamping the background trees again without re-inking so it looked like even more trees behind.
I was lucky and got another selection of Adirondack inks for my birthday but then the dilemma of how to store them....cue visit to DIY stores & craft shops ...nothing.
Came home and found this old box in a wardrobe that had been a posh wine-glass gift-box. See! I knew it would come in handy one day...lol.
It'll probably collapse before the week is out...but it's holding up for now!
And there's my growing collection of new inks on the bottom shelf...sighhhhh.
Off to catch up on some DT stuff...have a great week everyone.

Happy birthday to you!! Hmmm, just a 'tad' older?? I wonder....yes, I'll allow it as it's your birthday. What fabulously talented kids you have and your pride shines through your words. I LOVED the first card, but then I saw the 2nd card and LOVED that too!! I declare the result a draw. Enjoy the rest of your day.
