Before we go to get ready for the BIG DAY, let’s take a peek at some of the creativity that’s been blooming this past week! It’s time to see....


First up, we have Gail M. of Pop, Paper Scissors! She used colored pencils and mineral spirits to bring this breathtaking color to Power Poppy’s digi stamp Countryside Bouquet. I honestly can’t take my eyes off these super serene hues! And, don’t you love the touches of pink on some of the flowers suggesting that an early morning glow is being cast on this beauty? Ahhhhh.... love it!

Our second “Peep” is Beth of Nana's Memories and More, who offered up this rustic and earthy take on the Gerbera Daisies Digital Stamp Set! I love the way she layered the digi image to give it some POP. And, who doesn't love a little sparkle on the petals and flower centers thanks to some glitter glue? I know I do! Thank you, Beth, for sharing your card with us!

Both cards are absolutely gorgeous. I love the coloring on Gail's card. Have never been tempted to try colored pencils, but I sure am now. Thank you both for the great inspiration!
