A Creative Smorgasbord!

Hello lovelies and happy Friday to you all! Before I get started on the big show of creativity we have here each and every Friday -- did you see these little numbers that came out last weekend? Goodness gracious, if you have someone who loves to hit the river in search of a great catch, this series of digital stamp sets are just for YOU! There's Fly Guy, Leaping Trout and Reel Deal!  A little birdie told me that some of the Bloom Brigade are showing off these new sets with their Friday posts, so you will HAVE to hop on over to see their creations for yourself!

Moving on -- a new week -- a new chance to show you our inspirational round up of fantabulous projects out there in blog land using Power Poppy! Woo hoo!

I have to start my little show and tell this with beauty by the uber talented Mindy Baxter! 

Not only did Mindy do an amazing job bringing these roses from Power Poppy's Everything's Rosy digital stamp set to life, but she has a tutorial over on her blog HERE to showcase just how she did it! Don't you just love that? I bookmarked it already in hopes of grabbing just the right markers to follow along! 

On top of that, Mindy entered this little number in Cindy Lawrence's brand new....

You will definitely have to play along in this month's Power & Spark Challenge because folks, it is just too easy! All you have to do is create a card, promise to put a stamp on it, and mail it off as a random act of kindness to someone you want to share a little happy mail with! What's better than that? You can read up on this month's challenge HERE and find out how you could win a Power Poppy stamp set just for playing along! 

Okay, I have a few more creations to share with you all before I pass things over to our Bloomies! I was strolling through the gallery at Splitcoaststampers and stumbled upon this stunning creation from Linda Paider a.k.a. Holstein. Woah... is that not dreamy? Linda used reinkers to color up Power Poppy's digital stamp Climbing Clematis and then, get this, hand lettered the sentiment! I love the bit of embossed detail she added too! 

Last but not least, Nancy Bramucci Sheads, over at Rowhouse Greetings wasted no time pulling out the Copic markers and taking our new digital stamp Fly Guy out for a fishing trip! And, I might add, I am sure glad she did. Take a peek for yourself! 

I not only love the way Nancy colored up this outdoorsy dude, but I adore her layout as well! It's got spunk and style! 

Our Bloomies definitely have got it going on in the spunk and style department and we almost have a full house today of those designers playing along and showing off some of their latest creations! So, hop on over and see what they've got going on in their creative bag of tricks!

Thanks for stopping by. Be sure to tune in on Monday for another "episode" of Inspire Me Monday, designed to start your week off with just the right creative kick! :-)

Have a fabulous weekend!
