VA-CA pics & a card JFF!??!!!? Wow!





Before we get too 'in depth' with my card today, I must show you what fun we......YES WE had at Tinkertown last week. Tinkertown is a playland for kiddos, of all ages. All sorts of rides & games and concessions stands.....it has something for everyone. I have not been to Tinkertown for soooooooooo long, I thought that it was aimed at little wee kids, but NOPE, they had some pretty scary rides there for older kids too, which is where my daughter & her cousin ran off to, whilst me, dad and da boys, played around the younger sections!
First ride.......helicopters. Yup that's me squeezing in there with my kids. It goes round and round  and you pull on the black bar to make it go up and down. VERY COOL!


Here's Reade, my 3 yr old, driving his car down the pulley-system roadway! He really liked this one.


Then we all went for a train ride around the perimeter of the park. It was a nice cool ride for such a hot day!


Oh yes, and how could we forget the boat ride. Neither kids wanted to get off this one, which led to.....you guessed it.....a screaming match, after the 3rd ride was done!

And the carousel ride. Reade doing one of his famous poses & below is Merik; basically he's trying to figure out what the heck this thing is! haha!



oooo......there you see my daughter, Hannah & her cousin, finally at the end of the day. See Reades' face.....lol....yup that's the reaction after this coin operated ride ended & it was time to go.
Somebody please tell me it gets easier when he turns  4 !! lol


I still have pictures of Fun Mountain to show you.,...... but we'll save that for another day.

***************************************

Lets look at my card for the day shall we?!
Since I've been home for a couple days before we head out again, next week for more vacationing, I thought I'd let a couple of challenges in blogland inspire me!
At MDU they have a fabulous sketch I couldn't wait to sink my ink into! (see below), at Addicted to Stamps the theme is anything goes, at Make it Colorful the theme is to colour with pink, & Just Magnolia has an anything goes theme with optional glitter (I got tons of that on here).



The doily, clear water pearls, seam binding & pins are from a truly inspirational blogger Chelsea; who sent me a mini candy package from when she had her last candy draw! Yay Me! The chipboard Tim Holtz Birdcage is off of eBay....I sponged it with pink SU ink & touched it with tattered rose crackle paint, same with the wings on either side of it! Pink ribbon is Really Reasonable Ribbons & feathers are from Dollarama. The paper is MME. I added glitter to whatever I could.







 I'd also like to enter this card into some other challenges: namely....Cupcake Inspiration challenge- photo inspire (see below) , Dream Valley- distressing, City Crafter for Home Sweet Home ,  & Outlawz- Paper A La Mode Challenge of sparkle.

I'm off to pack the camper again for more hols tomorrow until Friday! YAY!
