Game Console Boy

During the very cold and wet winter school holidays, my son entertained himself with his game console. Fortunately, he also enjoyed playing tennis, basketball, AFL and other sports at various school holiday camps. But the game consoles are very popular with boys of his age.

So when Ashley was invited to a school friend's birthday celebration (which was a trip to the Power House Museum, very cool), my mind turned to the stamp shown above. In the gaming theme, I added the sentiment "It's your turn...." and inside:

Happy birthday to a special 9 year old. Time sure flies, I can hardly believe that 9 and 10 year old birthday parties are on the agenda.

Thanks for looking.

Love from Crafty Kim
