Life Give You Limes? Make Margaritas!

Coffee of the Day - Spiced Southern Pecan

Happy Cinco de Mayo! Here in our house we LOVE our Mexican food! so Cinco de Mayo is a day we love to celebrate! and yes, I do love a margarita, too! on the rocks, no salt for me. but I make a mean frozen one, too. especially when fresh summer fruits are available. yum, yum! nothing like a fresh watermelon margarita when it's super hot outside....

Betty, over at Simply Betty Stamps, drew this fabulous 'Rita Limes' image a few weeks ago. I knew she was one that just HAD to be part of my collection. :) and what better time to make a card with her than today!

paper is from the Authentique Utopia collection, flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts, cream seam binding is from Really Reasonable Ribbon and dyed to match, as are gingham ribbon and crotchet trim snippets. sentiment portion was lightly sponged with ink and then sprayed with olive glimmer mist. I added rock candy distress stickles around the rim of the glass to mimic salt.

hope you have something fun planned for today to celebrate! we're having a fabulous breakfast with fresh salsa and chorizo then cooking fajitas on the grill for dinner. oh so tasty! :)

make it a good one, folks! thanks for stopping by! :)
