Who's Ready for a Little FRIDAY FUN?

What's light-hearted, colorfully creative and jam-packed with artistic inspiration? Well, it is FRIDAYS here on the Power Poppy blog! This is the hot spot to find not only some of the most fabulous customer creations but the best from our Bloom Brigade too! We even love to share a little reminder about our ongoing Power & Spark Challenges!


For starters...... have you made time yet to "Pencil Me In?"

For our June Power & Spark Challenge, all you need to do is grab some of your favorite hues of pencils and put that color to paper! If you want to see some of the spectacular work that has been rolling in since we kicked off this challenge, all you need to do is click HERE! That's also where you can read up on the official rules and link up your own creation when you're done! Woo Hoo!

One of my favorite things to do during our month-long quest for challenging fun is to go through the link list and really take a good peek at the entries. I am always amazed at the different layouts, the appealing color combinations, and the beautifully embellished card fronts. It just gets those creative juices flowing -- I tell ya!

Need an example? Well, you really need look no further than this posh and postively pink creation from the talented Pauline Godfrey using Power Poppy's brand new addition to our Instant Garden, Garden Fireworks! 

Is this not a soft and serene delight for the eyes? Look at that fabulous embossed background, the beautiful pops of pastel and the way she just accented her card with feminine appeal using sheer ribbon and splashes of sparkle! LOVE! We also need to share our congrats to Ms. Pauline for being one of the newest members of the Splitcoaststampers' Dirty Dozen!! That is quite an honor and a VERY well deserved one at that!

So, pick up YOUR pencils and join Pauline in this challenge! You could win that Power Poppy stamp set or digital stamp that you've been just craving to add to your collection!

Next up, the BLOOMIES! Our beloved designers, who we just so happen to think are the best in the biz! Hop around and see what craftiness they've conjured up this week for all to see!

Thanks so much for stopping by! Be sure to "tune in" on Monday when Kathy Jones ushers in another Inspire Me Monday! She has some tips and tricks for getting that dreamy, cool effect of water when you pick up your Copic markers. See you back here then!
