Fabulous Weekend!

We had a busy weekend.....lots of activities and events happening for a small community of 2200 people. Friday we entertained guests on our deck with a BBQ and a few drinks then mostly everyone headed off to the local fair.
Saturday, was the "Great Canadian Tractor Parade" which was coordinated to raise money for Cancer Research. This has got to be one of the most moving events I have ever witnessed. To think ...... one gentleman thought it would be a fun idea to beat the 601 Guinness Book of World records for the most tractors in a parade. The energy and the excitement of a small community working together to pull off such an event was phenomenal. We did beat the record in fact we more than doubled the record with 1231 tractors. Watching and seeing so many people that I knew taking part in parading through the streets was very moving. You knew that each person at some point has dealt with cancer in some fashion. Seriously choked me up since I too have lost loved ones with this terrible disease. Hats off to everyone in the community who volunteered their time and raised so much money for such a worthy cause!!!
My card was coloured with copics and pencils for shading. Cut the image out with my nesties and layered on dp paper, added some glitter and a gorgeous wide ribbon.

This is so pretty! You did a great job coloring and I love the sheer ribbon and the elegant border.

That is so amazing that you had so many tractors in the parade and for such a good cause too. Glad it was such a success!
