A new card and my weekend :)

Hi everyone!!
Today i have a cute card to share with you. I wanted to make this one for Inspiration Week last week but I run out of time so I finished it this weekend and here it is! I love the paper pieced watermelon pieces :)


I love this mini set so much! Those cute little ants are adorable!

Also I want to share my weekend with you :) I don't usually share personal stuff on my blog but it was a lot of fun and I need to share!!

As many of you know, I live in a small city in the North East of Spain. My city was founded by the Romans 2000 years ago and they coexisted peacefully with the existing residents in the area, the Celtics. So once in the year we have a celebration remembering them and this celebration was this past weekend. We have a wall all around the center of the city built by the Romans to protect the antique city and it's one of the actual World Wonders by Google (yes, I'm proud of it!! :P)

We usually dress like celtic or roman people, we decorate the streets and houses inside the wall and there are events with actors during all the weekend, , it's so much fun! So I wanted to share some pics! I forgot my camera at home so actually, only the last two pics are from this year, I took the others last year :)







I know it, this pic is horrible (it was taken at night with my phone :/) but I'm in LOVE with this gorgeous Pegasus :)


Also, I'm not a crazy soccer fan but, on Saturday, the Spain team won the match against the France team so we are classified for the Euro 2012 semifinals, woohoo! And on Sunday our city team ascended to a higher category, yay! it was a hard and super exciting match! It was played in the other team's city so we saw it on a big screen on the street and it was so fun! This is a phone pic after the victory :)


Well, sorry if you don't mind all this but I needed to share! Thank you very much for stopping by, I hope you have a great week!!
Hugs!!

Cute card indeed! And thanks for sharing those pictures and awesome information on some of Spain's history. I visited Spain back in the Spring of 2000 (para Las Fallas) and had a blast! I really enjoy your blog posts... (:

Your card is so much fun! I won the Happy Summer stamp set (happy me!) and I love your idea of paper piecing the watermelons (especially think the chevron for the rind is awesome!) TFS!
Your pictures from the festival are wonderful! One of the things that I love about following blogs are they from all over the world and it's so enriching to see what is happening on other parts of the globe! I will be sharing your post with my kids today for some summer social studies!

By 1960 George had 5 kids, none of which were too bright, a long suffering wife, and a serious drinking problem. - Carmageddon Splat Pack Muralitharan was one of the most successful bowlers in the game of cricket. With Blizzard taking a cut of all transactions, this may very well turn out to be a win-win for them.
