Ride of Your Life Birthday Card

Hello everyone, I hope you have had a great weekend! It has been very hot here and with evening thunder storms.        Here is a card I made using a darling Bugaboo stamp. My oldest grandson's birthday is in August but, when I finished this card I thought of him. You see, when he was about 6 years old we took him and his sister to the Smoky Mountains and Cherokee Indian Reservation. There is a kiddie amusement park in Cherokee called Santa Land. It has been there for as long as I can remember. We took Zachary and Alexis there for the day and they had a ball! They even got to pet and bottle feed a baby black bear and Zachary got chosen to be in the magic show! You should have seen their faces when they saw Santa and Mrs. Claus walking in the park and coming our way!!! Anyway, There are lots of kiddie rides and a Ferris Wheel but the biggie is the Rudy-coaster. Alexis didn't want any part of a roller coaster big or small but Zachary couldn't get on fast enough! Guess who got to ride it with him, ME! We got to sit in the front and the ride operator was very willing to let us ride over and over and over and over and over. I really don't know how many times we rode, but Zachary was having so much fun, laughing his head off and holding his hand in the air and me holding him! When we finally stopped Zachary exclaimed "lets ride again", I said no we need to get of now to which he answered, "whats the matter grandma, you scared"? Silly boy! So when I saw these adorable stick people on the roller coaster I had it pictured in my mind exactly what I wanted to do.    Well. what do you think, is this a good card for Zachary even though he will be 21!!!
Have a great evening!

 Isn't this image adorable!
 I used a glitter pen for the tracks and some of the car.
 You can see it on the car better here.
 I have a ticket stamp that was perfect for this!
