Hello all and happy Friday! It's the day before All Hallow's Eve! Any crafters out there with wee ghosts and goblins ready to take over the city in search of candy? I love this time of year, nothing like the crisp fall air paired with darling kiddos smiling and just looking for goodies! It's priceless. So, HAPPY HALLOWEEN to you all!

We aren't in the business of "Tricking" today but we sure will be "Treating!" First up, time is dwindling for you to get in on this month's......

This fun-filled Power and Spark Challenge called Bits & Pieces ends tomorrow at 8PM EST! So, grab whatever bit or piece of a stamped image you'd like to play up on a card and get those last minute entries in! Winner gets a stamp set of choice and that, sweet stamping friends, is indeed a TREAT!

We've also been treated to the artistry from all kinds of entries this month! Just because I LOVE to share, let's take a peek at a few cards that just trickled in this past week! Shall we?

First up is MAUREEN WONG! Not only do I love the sparkly and soft backdrop to this beautifully colored floral, I realized looking at it that Maureen just used the budding flower from Power Poppy's Digital Stamp set called Sunflower Power. So sweet! On top of that, she used multiple images to add a little something from the dimension department. What a beautiful effect, don't you think?

Next up is Barbara Campbell who not only blew up a snippet of the Digital Stamp called Countryside Bouquet, she colored it exquisitely in bold shades of orange. It's got almost a dreamy, watercolor effect going on there! Well done Barbara! Well done!

Well, that was fun, wasn't it? I hope you feel creatively refreshed and ready to take on the Power & Spark Bits & Pieces challenge YOURSELF! We'll be drawing a name, thanks to this week and will announce the lucky stamper next Friday as we unveil a brand-spanking new Power & Spark Challenge just for YOU!

And now it's time to shine the spotlight on our ever-so-fabulous crew of Bloomies! Make sure you stop by their "places" to give them a shout!

Thanks for stopping by and checking out what's POPPIN' here on the Power Poppy Blog! Make sure to tune in Monday for another "episode" of Inspire Me Monday! I'm told Rhea Weigand is on deck and ready to "WOW" with another colorific creation!

See you back here soon!
