Ok so what is this hop about you ask? Well Cinco de Mayo (Spanish for "fifth of May") is a holiday held on May 5 that commemorates the Mexican army's unlikely victory over French forces ...at the Battle of Puebla on May 5, 1862, under the leadership of General Ignacio Zaragoza Seguín. It is celebrated primarily in the state of Puebla and in the United States. While Cinco de Mayo sees limited significance in Mexico itself, the date is observed nationwide mostly in the United States as a celebration of Mexican heritage and pride. "Cinco de Mayo is not a Mexican holiday—it is anAmerican Civil War holiday, created spontaneously by Mexicans and Latinos living in California who supported the fragile cause of defending freedom and democracy during the first years of that bloody war between the states." Cinco de Mayo is not Mexico's Independence Day, the most important national patriotic holiday in Mexico.
Pretty interesting huh?!! I didn't know any of that, here in San Antonio we dont really have any big celebrations for Cinco De Mayo even though we have lots of Mexican and Latinos here, I shared this with my children since their grandpa (my father in law) is from mexico, I like them to learn more about their heritage!!
Ok so now on to my project! I was really stuck on what to make so I decided to use one of Kich N Bleus digis of a little Mexican lady to make a just because card! She is too cute! I had this great paper that had Mexico all over it just didn't know what to do with it...until now!!
Isnt she adorable?!! Here is a close up of this cute digiI have some little Alphabet stamps that I got from Michaels for Ashley for a dollar and that is what I used to put the "Hola" on there! I didnt' want to add to much to this card because I am trying to make simple fast cards to put away just in case!
For my blog Candy I am giving away a set of Digi stamps by Kich N Bleus!! The set I used in fact, which is the Travel set! There are some really cute images!
