Hi guys. 
I hope that you have all had a great weekend.  We had some sunshine and some ok temps,  but nothing really warm yet.  We did manage to get our pool ready for the Summer.  Yay!   Now all we need is some hot weather and the M&Ms and I will be very HAPPY indeed. 
As you all know Mondays mean CASE over on the Greeting Farm Farm Fresh Challenge Blog and this week Leanne picked an awesome card to CASE!  I was in need of one more Birthday card and I have to admit that I was not coming up with much.  Well, when I started taking a closer look at Gio's card I really got into this one.  I am very happy with how it came out. 
I really had my mind set to use Mermaid Anya on something this week.  She is the first Greeting Farm stamp that I ever purchased and with everyone pulling from their oldies but goodies a couple of weeks ago I got to thinking about her.  I colored up her awesome hair and face and put her in Cupcake Anya's party clothes along with her cupcake and 'viola'  HAPPY BIRTHDAY!  :O)   I also loved how Gio had used a ribbon type banner for her greeting so as I don't have the Spellbinder one,  I free handed mine.  I think it turned out ok,  but I would really love the have the Spellbinder's ribbon banners set.  Oh well, a girl can dream right?  lol
Ok guys,  it is late and I have to work tomorrow so I am gonna hit the hay.  Have a great Monday and I will talk at you tomorrow.  Be sure to visit the FFF challenge blog to see all of the DT's awesome creations. 
Hugs, Lisa G
