Fiesta!!

In April, in San Antonio, Texas, there is an event called Fiesta.  It is a week long event with several parades with impressive floats.

 There are carnivals and something called Night in Old San Antonio.  NIOSA is held in the historic old city of SA called La Villita.  There are food vendors and booths with fun and games.  The thing that is so notable about Fiesta is color -- everything is very colorful.

One thing that has become very popular since we moved from SA is a Fiesta wreath.  You see them on the doors on many houses, especially the houses in the older, more historic areas of town.

Many of the businesses sell Fiesta pins as collectibles.  Here is an example of one of those.

See what I mean about a lot of color?  So, today I was inspired by a card I saw online so I was trying to make something similar.  My finished product didn't look anything like the one I saw but it did remind me of a lively Fiesta season!





I definitely need to find my water pen and work on my watercoloring skills!
