Welcome to Spring

Cinco de Mayo

Welcome to another great hop with the Crafty Christmas Crew.

This is something quite out of my depth.  Being in Australia we don't have this themed holiday.  I checked with our head DT and she said that sugar skulls would be ok to use for this one.  Lucky, because that is about all I

While we are all doing the stay at home thing, I promised myself that I would try and use sets I have bought and never used.  This is one of them.  I bought this about 5 years ago (or maybe longer) from Simon Says Stamp.  It is Sugar Skulls.  I have no idea whether it is still available or not.

BG02 BG05 BG07 BG09

I didn't add a sentiment on this one.  I may just leave it that way too.  Sometimes a sentiment isn't needed.

Don't forget to check out what everyone else has come up with.
