Joint birthdays

On 30th December evening we were invited to a joint birthday party - father and son had big milestones to celebrate. While the father turned 80, the son turned 40. They are a special family to me so I wanted to make special cards.
Here's what I came up with.
The first card is for the son; a joke seemed appropriate since we are great friends and have known each other for 15 years! I absolutely adore Gus, from Bugaboo stamps. He is simply funny and delivers the message so well :-) The sentiment is from TLC Creations; the poem I found it on the net.
The second card is for the father, a very sweet man. He was a pioneer in scuba diving in Ireland, and although he cannot dive anymore due to health issues, scuba diving is still his main passion in life now that he is retired. The images are from the net, coloured with Letraset Promarkers and raised with 3D pads.
Challenges:
Cute card Thursday - You are having a laugh
CRAFT - Celebrations
Simon Says - Spots and/or stripes
