Power & Spark Challenge: MAY FLOWERS!

Hola sweet stampers! Boy, do we have a lot to share to-DAY! First, a new challenge! Second, did you miss THIS fresh new digital stamp to hit the Power Poppy Shop? Oh my! Click the link if you missed yesterday's news! Third, we have a WINNER to announce from last month's Power & Spark Challenge. AND, we have some Bloomie creations to celebrate!

SO LET’S GET ON WITH THIS ACTION-PACKED
COLOR-FILLED POST! 

First up, Ms. Katie Sims is here to usher in a little challenge for the next 26 days and it’s one that I promise you’ll love!


HOW TO PLAY: If April showers bring May flowers, what kind of blossoms does this month of beauty deliver for you? To play along in this challenge, simply reach for your favorite Power Poppy stamp floral and make it the centerpiece of your design. 

Don’t have a Power Poppy floral? WHAT? Run over to the Power Poppy Shop and grab yourself a new set or maybe an instant gratification digital stamp set and color it until your heart’s content. With the abundance of gorgeous florals drawn by the Power Poppy Peep in Chief – Marcella Hawley — you might actually have a tough time picking your favorite! When you’re done, simply link it up on the Power Poppy blog and you’ll be in the running to win a Power Poppy stamp set of choice!

Take a gander at Katie's creation. This fine lady who hails from the state of Georgia will make no bones about it -- she LOVES her Azaleas. So, it's not a surprise that she picked Power Poppy's Azalea stamp set to kick off this creative challenge! Just breathe in this beauty, will you?


Thanks Katie girl for some amazingly awesome Azalea inspiration! Now, to the rest of you peeps, go treasure hunting in your craft room in search of your favorite blossoms, create and bring these babies to life and then, link up your art below on our handy dandy linky! Just that simple folks!

THE OFFICIAL RULES:
  • Use Power Poppy stamps for this challenge please!
  • Link your creation below using our Linky (please use the exact URL from your post instead of a generic blog address.)
  • Please mention Power Poppy in YOUR blog or gallery post with a link back to THIS challenge
  • The winner will receive a free clear or digital stamp set of choice from the Power Poppy Shop
  • Enter as many cards as you’d like, as long as they fit the theme of the challenge!
  • Deadline to enter is May 31th @ 8:00pm EST.  At that point, we’ll draw the winner randomly and make the announcement right here on the first Friday of June!

Did you play along in our April Power & Spark You Pick 3 Challenge? Well, listen up folks! Random.org threw all the numbers in their fancy schmancy random number generator thingy and the winner was......
This is the first time in my number picking history that it truly paid to be last! Good job....

 Robyn Oliver! 

...your just-in-the-nick-of*time creation is the PRIZE WINNER! And, for the rest who missed her creation in the link up line up, here it is in all its purple glory! Robyn also used Power Poppy's Azalea stamp set and fussy cut it for even more of an impact! I love seeing two different takes on a stamp set -- just shows all the creative possibilities!



With a brand new month, we can't wait to see what you come up with. Join in the fun and know we love seeing each and every one of your creations! Speaking of creations, the Bloomies have served up some Friday fun for y'all to see! Hop through the link list to see for yourself!
