Someday, the altered art you make today will be
old, faded, falling apart, and someone else will salvage the bits and use them
in new altered art.It's the best that any piece of art can hope for

Watch Watch Out there is a Kevin about..

Thirteen years ago tonight I was cuddling my new baby daughter - it doesn't seem five minutes ago and now she is a fully fledged teenager! Every year since I have made her a birthday card, but fortunately I no longer have to make cutesy cards! Just before I went on holiday to Sunless Spain last week I found these new stamps by The Octopode Factory - and just had to break my lent promise of buying rubber stamps! (well I did break it on my trip to the Craft Barn earlier in the month but they were acrylic stamps so didn't count!) and as it was just perfect for DD's card I HAD to have it - so really on all counts it doesnt count 

I just love these stamps - somehow four fell into my basket - not sure how that happened but it saves on postage ..... and one of the other stamps is going to be perfect for another Birthday card I have to make and.... ummmmmm have I justified it yet???

But................ I didn't eat Offal for the whole of Lent so that's good!!

(oh OH has just pointed out that I did have some Pate - but thats mushed up offal so that's ok ..isnt it???)

OK OK I give up, I am a bad girl and will never go to Heaven!

I digress.... this post was supposed to be a Happy Birthday for my lovely gorgeous teenage daughter - Happy Birthday Georgina - Loves Ya xxxxxxxxxxxx


  1. What a great post! You have totally justified yourself, for sure. Love your card, and happy birthday, Georgina!

  2. Happy birthday to you Georgina.
