Time to Show Off Some Creative FUN!

Hello all and welcome to another Friday when we  hand out a little love by showcasing a customer creation, share a little news about our most recent challenge, and of course, give you all the links to a whole lot of eye candy courtesy of the Power Poppy Bloom Brigade! So, you ask, what am I waiting for? Well, YOU, of course! ;-)

First things first, the entries are REALLY rolling in for our Power & Spark Rewind challenge! I guess folks love the fact that you can pick and choose one of your favorites from over the past year! If you haven't played along yet, check out all the official deets HERE!  If you have played along already, guess what? You can enter as many times as you like! So, let's see what else you got! ;-) After all, the winner gets to choose any stamp set they want for their prize! It's like an extra Christmas present!

Want to see just a couple of the entries that have popped up on the linky so far? Both of these fine stamping ladies decided to follow along with Katie Sims' challenge called Gifts From the Heart.

Donna Phelan made an adorable hanging tag for a wine bottle to give as a gift. I just love the design and how she used Power Poppy's Short Stacks stamp set to deck this one out! The sentiment "Enjoy Life, Sip by Sip," is pretty much PERFECT! It's a festive and fun design from top to bottom!

Next up is Heidi, who made this adorable little gift tag below --- also using Power Poppy's Short Stacks stamp set -- combined not only Katie's Gifts from the Heart Challenge, but Tosha's Go for the Gold Challenge as well! Way to combine 'em Heidi! I love the soft watercolor feel of this tag and the fun texture she addded by combining different kinds of ribbon and yarn -- too fun! 

And that, my stamping friends, shows two different twists on our Power & Spark Rewind Challenge! There's plenty of time to get in on the fun -- you have until December 31st at 8PM EST to enter.

Before we bid you adieu, let's go on our weekly Bloom Brigade Parade, when the Bloomies show off some of their latest (and I'm sure greatest) creations to wow and inspire!

AND A FEW FINAL NOTES! If you still need to add a few holiday stamps to your cache, anything from the Power Poppy Happiest of Holidays Collection is still on sale! They are 10% off when you use the code HOLIDAY10 at check out!

Also, don't be surprised if things get a little quiet here on the ole Power Poppy blog! Inspire Me Monday is taking a break until after the first of the year. We'll also be taking next Friday off here on the 'ole blog to honor the Christmas holiday. We'll be back the following Friday to share some last minute fun as we bid a fond farewell to 2015 and welcome in the New Year! See you all then!

Have a fabulous week!

I am so flattered that you linked my tag here in your blog post. I sure did enjoy coloring that image, even though I later decided the bird should have been more colorful in real life, but that is the beauty of stamps, you can create with them as you wish.

I am glad you are taking some time off the blog during the holiday season. Enjoy!

Wow! Thanks so much for the shout-out! I must say the tag went over even more than the wine lol (ps my tag also used these choices: Cut It Out, Gifts From The Heart, Bits & Pieces, Embellish This!) But who's counting?!?! Merry Merry!
