Time to... B Happy!

Hello folks and for those of you living here in the good 'ole U.S. of A. -- happy early Fourth of July wishes to you! I hope your day is full of fireworks, American pie and plenty of RED, WHITE & BLUE! We should also wish our friends to the north a very happy CANADA DAY today! Lots to celebrate this weekend!

HOW TO PLAY: Here’s what Ms. Kathy Jones has to say about this month's uber fun challenge....

Hello Everyone! It’s the first Friday in July and that means it’s time for another Power Poppy Power and Spark Challenge! This month I’m challenging you to B Happy! What does that mean? Get searching and find things that start with B and make them the focus of your card! There are sooooooo many things to choose from, think Birthday Cake, Bunting, Banners, Bouquets, Butterflies, Bees, Buttercups, Backpack, Berries, Blue, Brown, Beige, Bow, Bling, Buttons, Brads, Border Punch and so on! Let your imagination run wild, have some fun, link up to the challenge below and most of all...... Be Happy!
Here’s a peek at Kathy’s creation just to share a little bit of inspiration for this month’s challenge!


Hhhmm... what "B" things can you spot? A bouquet of flowers (from the Spring Meadow Bouquet digital stamp set), that stamp also happens to have a butterfly and a bee! There’s a banner die, bracket border punch, buttons, blue and... it's a birthday card! Woah... I think Kathy nailed this one, don’t you?  Now it's time to dig deep into that creative brain of yours and see just how you can “B” happy on your card or creation!
