It's a Celebration!!!!

Happy Cinco De Mayo! Four years ago today I was pregnant with my only daughter and counting down last few days to her due date of May 7th.  She actually arrived at 3 am on May 6th. So I guess when she gets older she can go from one party on Cinco De Mayo to her own birthday party.

More reasons to celebrate today is that Fresh Brewed Designs is releasing some fun Cinco De Mayo images AND it is the start of the Freshly Brewed Challenge blog. It is a weekly challenge blog and I hope you will get a chance to stop in and play with us.

This week's challenge is to make a celebration themed card.

We are having a hop this week that starts at 9am EST so that you can see many of the images being released in the shop today and there is a hidden prize on one of the DT blog so be sure to leave a comment.

My card uses one of the Fresh Brewed Designed Pinatas. Now you know how a Pinata prepares for a party. LOL. I colored this image up with copics and paired it with some fun K&Company paper. I also used the Sketch For You To Try #37 for the layout.

Here is the hop list(just click on the names to go to their blogs):
