If I ever did stupid stuff, it was unconsciously done, so I guess I don't have much to laugh about in my old age. No, I take that back, I laugh plenty about fun stuff my kids and grandkids did and do. The rest of the quote will be inside and says 'you'll have nothing to laugh about when you're old.'
Interesting inspiration site today...I can't quite figure out if it is a blog or what. A little bit of everything. I thought about doing something with the ads about crepe-y skin or ear tattoo ideas that will make you feel super feminine but decided that I was drawn to two things: a photo in the travel section of a big Ferris wheel and the quotation section. I love quotations and often print them out in fun fonts, which is what I did. I don't like rides at amusement parks because the first one I go on, I need to go lie down for the rest of the day, but I do like Ferris wheels.
I also have to say that the name of the site makes me think of a small village near Green Bay, WI called Suamico. Taken from an Indian name that means 'great sand bar people, or beaver tail, or yellow beaver, or swan.' They can't decide.

Ha....kids and grands do keep us laughing, don't they? You created such a cool and fun card. I stay off ferris wheels and go for something that doesn't scare me to death. Love the background.

Your Ferris wheel reminds me of all the times I've been to Coney Island and been on the Cyclone and the Wonder wheel. Those were the days! I'd probably throw out my back if I tried that now. Ha ha. The sentiment is great and I love the font you choose.

Your fun Ferris wheel design brought back lots of memories for me! My last trip on a double Ferris wheel cured me forever. While we were whirring around at the very top, my dh looks at the main mechanism and says, "Oh, look how loose those bolts are!"
God demonstrated His love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us ... being now justified by His blood, we shall be saved from wrath through Him. Romans 5:8 & 9

This is such a great card Jean with the London Eye. And, it does bring back some great memories of trips to Cedar Park in Sandusky Ohio, back in the day when no passport was needed to cross the Canadian/USA border.

A great sentiment to go with your wild ferris wheel background Jean! and a funny story about naming the town.....! I just went into their pinterest to find inspiration - sometimes there's too much 'stuff' on a website!
