Monday Fun Day #17....

Good morning all. 
     I hope that you all had a great weekend.  I don't know about you guys, but OMWord.... this month is just flying by.  It is January 23rd already and it seems like it was just Christmas.  
     Well as you can see it is already our 17th Monday Fun Day over on the Farm Fresh Challenge Blog and today we have a very fun challenge for you indeed.  All you have to do is use (a doily and/or lace) on your projects or cards.
     I decided that I really wanted to stretch just a little on this as it has been a long time that I have really been in a 'creative mood'...  I was going through my Creepers, as you all know they are my favorites from the farm and I came across Syren.  It got me to thinking that she would make a unique Valentine card.  I had a heart doily and wanted it to look like she was sitting on her oyster shell giving her heart away to her true love.  :O)  I also had a mind to use up some of my favorite papers from last January and of course me being me I would not let go of either one of  my ideas, so I decided that I would put it all together.   So, yes I went there.   I went with the paper, made Syren look like she had put some wonderfully opalescent seaweed in her hair for the occasion and used the awesome saying that came with the papers.  Fortunately for me April (Thanks again!) my fellow DT friend was so sweet and sent me this adorable stamp that I had to use on the inside to complete my theme.  I have to say that I really do love how it came out.. I do promise you April that  I was able to use my new stamp for the reason that you sent it to me.  :O)  I love how that came out as well, but that is for another day.  bahaha!!!  My pictures make it look darker than it really is, but I really love the non-conventional colors for a Valentine Card.  lol... 
     So, be sure to head over to the Farm Fresh Challenge Blog to see what the other ladies have cooked up for today's challenge.  Don't forget to make something up of your own and play along.  We just love seeing everything you all come up with and you also have a chance to win a stamp from The Greeting Farm, so how could you not play? 
     Have an awesome Monday everyone.  I actually had me some good old crafting time yesterday, so I will talk at you tomorrow.
Hugs,  Lisa G
