It's Bloomie Friday!

Happy Friday Y’all! It's time for another fun-filled episode of Bloomie Friday! That's what I am going to affectionately call today since we love to share the parade of projects whipped up by the clever and artistic hands of our Bloom Brigade each Friday. It’s a great end to the work week and a great kick start to your creative weekend! 

Speaking of creativity, we love to scour the web looking for the latest Power Poppy inspiration dreamt up by YOU -- our Power Poppy Peeps. And, dear stamping friends, this one by Becky Egecrone caught our eye with not only her fantastic use of pattern but her oh-so-sweet coloring and fabulous zig-zag stitched layout. LOVE! 

Just in case you wondered, Becky used Power Poppy’s charming set titled Go Wild. She also decked it out with some colored pencils and mineral spirits for that perfect blend! Ohhhh la la! 

Before we move on to our Bloomies, did you see we kicked off a new challenge last week? Check it out folks!

HOW TO PLAY: All September long, share your gifts from the heart and showcase ways you might creatively package up goodies, adorn them with stamped tags, or set them in handmade bags or boxes. Have a fun gift card holder? Share it! This Power and Spark Challenge is all about your creative gift presentations or handmade gifts! Show your art.... and your heart!

As the entries start to come in, we immediately fell in love with this one from Nancy Kirk. Not only do we love the embossed handmade box annd bow, but that tag in wintery blues and cardinal reds just POPS! I wonder what kind of fun trinkets she'll tuck inside! ;-)

Why not join Nancy in this challenge and show us your ideas for using a little stamping on your next gift? You can read up on all the Official Rules and link your creation right here on THIS CHALLENGE POST. The winner will get a choice of a free or digital stamp set from the Power Poppy Shop! Who wouldn't want that? Contest runs through September 30th at 8PM EST. 

Now, the moment you've all been waiting for -- our Bloom Brigade Parade! Go check out what these lovlies have been up to and don't forget to say “hi” while you're there!

Thanks for sharing a bit of your day with us! Be sure to tune in on Monday when Ally Cope joins us for another edition of Inspire Me Monday! See you back here then!

Oh, I always love Fridays (and Mondays) at Power Poppy! And today it's a delight to see my friend Becky's beautiful card! She's amazing. And what a handmade box with beautiful tag by Nancy! Just finished hopping through the Bloom Brigade's cards and loved each one! Hugs, and have a wonderful weekend! And may we never forget 9/11.
