Follow Your Heart (& Our Bloomies’ TOO!)

Happy Bloomie Friday folks! Today’s spot here on the Power Poppy Blog is brought to you by the fun-filled, extraordinary ideas and artistic endeavors of the Bloom Brigade and... a few of our fabulous Power Poppy Peeps! We love sharing the joy that’s packed into every handmade card and so, let’s get right to it!

First up, did you see the brand new addition to the  Power Poppy Instant Garden that was unveiled earlier this week? OH MY! Have yourself a little “Look-See!”

As Ms. Marce says when describing this new digital stamp set, “This puffy heart is packed with ravishing roses and a lust for life!” Well my, if that doesn’t make you want to order, download, print and prep with color -- I am not sure what will! This is an illustration that’s perfect for the upcoming holiday of love with a message that lasts all year round! You can find this lovely --- Follow Your Heart --- by clicking on the link! You’ll also find inspiration on our Pinterest Board showcasing this newbie!

And, if you want to see what some of our finest designers whipped up using this new image, follow this link list below for our weekly Bloom Brigade Parade! 

Before we say so long and farewell, we have a bit of bragging to do on some of our finest Power Poppy Peeps this week! The entries continue to come in on this month’s Power & Spark Stretch Yourself Challenge! And, as usual, the creativity that is being linked up does NOT disappoint! 

When I saw this long and lean card by Jessie Banks on the linky, I literally gasped. I love what she did by blowing up the Hellebores Digital Stamp to isolate just that portion of this drop dead gorgeous flower! The sentiment is tucked in perfectly and the colors are peaceful and serene! (You can click on the link to read up on how she created this beauty and see additonal photos!)

If you want to follow in Jessie’s footsteps, you can read all about this month’s challenge, get a little crafty and then...... link up your cards HERE! This month’s Power & Spark Challenge closes on January 31st (THIS SUNDAY). So, dream up a way to tackle this challenge and then share what you’ve created by putting your entry on our linky! Winner gets to hit the Power Poppy Shop and pick any stamp set they like if they win! Any last-minute-Lucy cardmakers out there? There's still time to get in on the fun! ;-) 

Have a great weekend and we'll see y’all back here soon!
