Do It Anyway • Winners for Week 2

Hello my friends!

I’m very happy to share with you the winners of our Week 2 Power & Sparklette Challenge where we asked a question, and received some of the most inspiring, thought-provoking, standing-ovation-inducing answers. It is my belief that you are ALL rockstars in this life. You inspire me to keep doing what I do by letting me know you’re out there doing what YOU do. I just know that you inspired others by your example. And I hope that you know that if you could do that thing you did, well by golly, you can DO ANYTHING you set your mind to.

Thank you, thank you to everyone who read our question, pondered a response, and took the time to share your very meaningful stories.

I could not bring myself to select a “winner”, because I struggle with the concept of one triumph being better or more daring or more ANYTHING than another. THEY ALL WIN!! So, please understand that I selected randomly using All of the entries were SO good! Our grand prize winning post said:

“Around 2008 I saw crafters on line using the Distress Inks to color stamp images. I was hooked on the beautiful colors of the Distress Inks and wanted to learn so bad. At the time I couldn't find any videos or help to learn. (This was even before the markers came out. I was using the ink pads.) So I taught myself. It took me two years of constant practice and I came up with a technique all my own. I can now sit down and color images and more with them and feel so comfortable and grateful that I kept up with the practice. Since then I have learned to color with the markers too. I know that the Lord gave me the talent and gifts I have and through His help I was able to learn. I am so grateful.”

The winner of the $25 Power Poppy Gift Code is:


Ann, if you can drop me a quick email at, I will send you your prize!

Hold on a second, I’m not finished here....

I’d like to extend a $10 Gift Code to the Power Poppy Shop to each of the women who contributed to our Do It Anyway Challenge. 

If you were one of the inspiring souls who submitted a response to this post, please send me an email at, and I will send you a $10 gift code. You can use it towards digis or clear stamps, and it will have no expiration. Or you can share it with a friend if you’d like.

Have a great day, everyone, and remember that you are SO Courageous AND Creative!
