Flowers = Happiness!

Hello to all of you! Are you having fun watching things sprout here in Power Poppy land? I call this past month one giant dose of happy! And, we've got 4 more days to enjoy our May Flowers Power & Spark Challenge. We can't wait to see these last bits of flower power come in and join us in this challenge!

If you've missed out on the fun, you can click on the graphic below to read up on the challenge, and what you could win if you play along with us!


Like I mentioned, the pop of color and creativity is parading its way onto the Power Poppy blog and boy, today's show and tell is so fun, I am not sure I will be able to contain myself! We have three bold creations that are so unique, they are sure to inspire! Want to see?

First up, this card, bathed in shades of mauve, grassy green and deep purple is about as elegant as they come with all that die cut detail and the phenomenal coloring job by the hands of Ms. Pauline Godfrey. She used Power Poppy's Planning for Magnolias in such a sweet way and tied it all up with a classy satin bow!


I nearly squealed when I saw Kerry Piader's creation below. It is so "happy" and is accessorized to a tee! The stitching! The corner accent! The little ruffle border! All I have to say is LOVE! Kerry used Power Poppy's Folk Heart stamp set. Kerry said she lost all sense of time when she started this card and I have to say, you can truly see the joy she had while putting this little ball of sunshine together!


And for our final showcase card, I am turning to a designer that is quickly becoming one of my favorites. Lisa Lara's coloring for this clean and classy creation below is a showstopper. The depth mixed with that light blue halo of shading creates a breathtaking combination using Power Poppy's Peony Love digital stamp set. So much so, I just had to share this little number today!


So take the lead from these fine ladies and let's see how you can bring your favorite blossoms to life! If you need a little extra inspiration to kick off a bit of weekend creativity, never fear! We have our Bloomies on standby to share a few more creations... JUST FOR YOU! So, stop by, say "hi" and breathe in the beauty!



We'll be off on Monday taking time for the Memorial Day holiday and giving thanks to those men and women who have made the ultimate sacrifice while serving their country. We will be back at the very latest next Friday, when we reveal a new Power & Spark Challenge and share who walked away a winner for our May challenge!

Enjoy your weekend!
