A Different Kind of Peep Show! ;-)

Another Friday, another time for a little Power Poppy show & tell featuring our Peeps (our wonderful customers) and our Bloom Brigade, too! This week was a fun one because the entries for our brand new Power & Spark Challenge are starting to trickle in. I always love those first few cards that are linked up because already you can see the creativity behind each one!

What challenge are we talking about? Why, this one, of course!

Katie is the hostess this month and she wants you to pull out your favorite Power Poppy blooms and make them the centerpiece of your card or creation. What image is your fave? We cannot wait to see! When you're done, don't forget to link it up HERE on this month's challenge post! While you're there, you can read up on all the official rules to find out how YOU can be in the running for a free Power Poppy stamp set of choice! Woo Hoo! 

For our little show and tell bit, I wanted to share two creations that I thought were almost polar opposites, but lovely just the same!

This first card is from the talented Jessie Banks. Look at all that AMAZING depth she added to Power Poppy's digital stamp set Everything’s Rosy with the flick of a Copic pen. I could stare at this one for DAYZ! ;-) 

While Jessie’s card is bathed in more earthy delights, Alba’s card below just grabs your attention with powerful pops of purple, lime green and turquoise. Don't you love the little white dots she added to make the centers of those flowers be the stand outs that they most certainly are! Albita used distress inks to bring Power Poppy’s Gerberas to life in such a perfectly pretty way! 

I have to tell you, I had such a tough time choosing cards this week! I mean, did you see Lisa Lara’s creation HERE? Or, how about Gail's? You really need to click on over to the Power Poppy blog to see the entries for yourself. They are ALL truly exquisite!

Speaking of exquisite, our Bloomies are just that! And, they have some visual treats for you to see over at their places on the blogosphere! So, check 'em out, will ya?

And that, my friends, is it for this week! We do have a bit of fun coming up in the next few days! Sunday will bring another new addition to the Power Poppy Instant Garden. This brand new illustration from our Peep-in-Chief Marcella is one that offers a little somethin’ somethin’ for those cardmakers with grads on their list! And Monday, we’ll have another edition of Inspire Me Monday. So swing back to make sure you don’t miss out!
