I seem to have missed World Card Making Day yesterday - hubby is away for the long weekend and so for a treat, I took the kid's to Saunder's Farm.  It's a local 'pumpkin patch' type place (that has long since grown beyond the pumpkins!) which I have avoided in the past because it's rather spendy.  It turns out it's well worth the dollars, we spend the entire day there and I had to drag the kids out kicking and screaming.  Wagon rides, haunted barns, tons of mazes, play structures and more.  The best part was the jumping pillows - giant inflated pillows set into the ground.  Most of the parents stood around and watched, but there was a small group (myself included) jumping and laughing hysterically.  Seriously, way too much fun!

 However, I did manage to make a card the night before we went - not last night as I passed out soon after the kids did!  This is for the Cat's Pajamas Sketch Challenge - I'm still working my way through my new Cat's PJ's stamps I got a month back.   Love this sheep almost as much as the bunnies, and the sentiment just cracks me up.  Hat head anyone?
