I Miss the Southwest..

My sister lives in New Mexico and talk about an "artsy" town....wow..Between Santa Fe and Albuquerque...there is art everywhere!  Did I mention that it's pretty "warm" too?  :)  What a change from Cleveland Ohio.  As I write this post it's raining AGAIN....oh well...better days are ahead!
I saw the challenge over at the CCEEE girls blog was "Cinco de Mayo" colors!  Didnt have to ask me twice cuz I bought this cute stamp in Santa Fe at a little stamp store on the square.  The dp is from a K & co. pad .  This card makes me think of the beautiful weather and good times I had there!  I also LOVE the colors for the challenge over at the Play Date Cafe-  PDCC80 .  Notice I just HAD to add a touch of turquoise  cuz it seems to be EVERYWHERE in New Mexico!  At  Paper Take weekly blog anything goes with an option to use something "round" on your card= the button.  TFL!

Love the layout, colour scheme and offset centre of the flower circle!
If it is any consolation to you and all the rain you are having because none was falling over here in Blighty, we have been catching up by having thunderstorms and vast quantities of rain since Friday, so I don't think there is any rain left to fall in Ohio this week...

Sorry to hear you're getting crappy rain! We had so much of that in April. Ugh. So far, May's been great...warm and sunny for the most part.

Your card DOES remind me of a Mexican flavored theme. Ole!
