Happy Cinco de Mayo!

It's Cinco de Mayo! Yes, it's the fifth of May once again. I'm having a hard time believing that one-third of 2013 has already sped by. But I'm sure enjoying the warmer weather that May has brought with it!

If I'd thought of it in time, I would have planned for us to celebrate Cinco de Mayo today with some tortilla chips and salsa, along with some yummy bean and cheese enchiladas perhaps. If I'd put two and two together in advance. But I didn't. Instead I have a pork loin roast thawing in my refrigerator for tonight's supper and nary a Mexican meal ingredient in sight. We do love Mexican food here at my house, so we'll get in a festive Mexican supper sometime soon. It just won't be on Cinco de Mayo!

A few years ago I won the complete Fiesta paper collection by We R Memory Keepers as a comment-to-win prize somewhere here in blogland. The wonderful prize collection that I received included some fun, oversized chipboard stickers. I had a blast putting together some Mexican-themed goodies for this Cinco de Mayo card for a friend--I sent it out just to say "hi" and that I miss her!

Here's hoping that Cinco de Mayo is sunny in your neck of the woods! Thanks for stopping by for a little visit today. :D

Oh, what a fun, colorful card you've given us today. You've given me an idea for dinner tonight. Hubby and I both love Mexican so maybe I'll make my Mexican Casserole. Yummy!

This is very festive, so apropos for Cinco de Mayo. Right away, I recognized the goodies you won from a while ago. Moxie Fab World, was it?

Soooo good to see you post something. :-) I have thought of you SO many times, but life has been quite chaotic lately and I've not been able to call you. You are on my mind, though! Hugs!

Your card is beautiful Emily! I love the green roses along the top.

It was chicken and potatoes for us today as well. Maybe I will have a little snack of taco chips and salsa this evening. Ole!

Hope you had a great weekend. Spring is finally here!!!
Cheers! :)
