It's all about Friday...


 And it's Friday, and I want to participate in the Fabulous Friday Friends from Unity!  So I am linking this post to its blog.


I made this card for my brother, since when I talked to him last week he was kind of down for some situations in his life.  Nothing huge, but don't you think sometimes we feel we could not deal with ordinary things.  It's just part of life... What you can control, do; what you can't, let it be... hehehehe...



So I used these Unity stamps, not only because they are gorgeous and always stamp so neat... but because the message is right on!


My brother and I love margaritas, so this is a nice touch for the intended message too!    I stamped and cut and additional lime to use separately from the original image attached to the margarita glass.



I added some sparkle to the border of the glass to simulate salt... Mmmmm...


And the card does not have anything feminine and I used colors that could match the recipient... my brother...  :)

Hope you like it and found it refreshing...  Salud!
