A Bevy of Beauty

Happy Friday, Power Poppy Peeps! Get ready for, like I said above, a bevy of beauty coming your way. It’s the day we share some of the jewels we’ve found in the blogosphere, on Instagram, and beyond, after seeking out super crafty doses of inspiration, just in time to kick off your weekend!

But FIRST, we want to take a moment on this Veterans’ Day to share huge amounts of gratitude to the men and women who serve, and have served, our country. You are the bravest of the brave, true superheroes, and we thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your service. 

Now, have you heard about this brand new theme for our monthly Power & Spark challenge? If not, here it is sweet peeps! 


Tosha Leyendekker is challenging us to think positively pink when it comes to our holiday creations! Simply craft a card with a holiday flair, making sure it's awash in that hue, link up your creation HERE and you'll be in the running for a Power Poppy stamp set of your choice! With all the holiday buying you're thinking about at the moment, this little gift would be JUST FOR YOU! 

Even though we just kicked off the challenge last Friday, already the entries are starting to pop in! I simply adore seeing different designers' artistic takes on these challenges. So inspiring! Check out this one below by Anita Madden, While pink is her dominant color, I love the pops of blue and green to just set her card off in style! Anita used Power Poppy’s Bottlebrush Holiday for this little number. She also used one of my favorite things in the whole world.... GLITTER! Check it out....



Are YOU playing along in the Daily Marker’s 30 Day Coloring Challenge?


These fine ladies below have and we couldn't be happier that they reached for their Power Poppy digis and stamps to get their color on! If you have no idea what the 30 Day Coloring Challenge is -- let me fill you in! Our friend Kathy Racoosin of The Daily Marker started this fun and stress-busting challenge to get us out of the day-to-day grind and instead do something we love -- COLOR -- even if it is just for 10 minutes each day! What’s better than that? Well, chocolate might be better, but still! ;-) You can check out the details HERE and then, join in the fun!


Jenny Colacicco used Power Poppy’s Flowers, Always digi and made it awash with color for her daily dose. Love that dreamy look Jenny! 


Vivien Lee enlarged the image from Power Poppy’s Spring Meadow Bouquet digital set and colored it up in such a striking way. I mean, can you just smell those lilacs? It’s honestly one you have to stop, take a deep breath, and just take it all in! 

Thanks, Peeps, for making our week shine with your talent & awesomeness!

Now it's time to turn things over to a few of our Bloomies who also have sweet things to share this Friday! Hop through this little linky list and I know you'll leave their little places on the web inspired! ;-)




Be sure to tune back in on Monday when we offer up another edition of Inspire Me Monday! Kathy Racoosin will  be in the house to share a little more about her 30-day Coloring Challenge and give you a snippet of one of her latest color fests! Hopefully seeing her world in color will help you pick up your favorite medium and join in on her challenge!

See you back here soon!
