Penny farthing "thanks" in the just add ink challenge!

For those of you that don't know, I live in Evandale Tasmania. It's a gorgeous little town just outside of Launceston. I love living here. It's a cute sleepy town with a gorgeous bakery and awesome butcher, and a little village shop. (-and a great remedial massage therapist πŸ˜‰πŸ˜‰πŸ˜‰ME!!)

Every year this town goes through a metamorphosis of sorts for the national Penny farthing champion ship races.
"Just a bit of fun" -you say? No, these are SERIOUS races!! 

We have 2 pubs in town, here's one, right out side the race course!!

Ingelside Bakery. You can get the BEST sourdough here!!

People come from far and wide to compete, ( international visitors as well!!) and it's great to watch. There's also some wonderful stalls. 

This year we have a friend that happens to be staying the weekend of the penny farthing races. I made a card to say a big thankyou to him, and used the races as my inspiration!
Ive entered it into the "thank you challenge" at the Just add ink blog! Im loving entering challenges at the moment- its great getting your creative juices flowing!!!
