Talented Peeps A Plenty!

Hello Peeps! Is it FRIDAY already? What a treat! I always love this day because honestly, with all the beauty in blog land, I see these creations and just want to spend the rest of the weekend in my happy place coloring and creating!! Oh, you card makers inspire! 

First up, we are on the final day of our way fabulous sale for all you lovers of our Instant Garden, a.k.a. our digital stamp line. Check it out — use code COLORMEHAPPY for 25% off your purchase of digital stamps:

Now that we got this fabulous housekeeping note in, it's time to unleash some excitement that we found the web this week! You better buckle up because man, oh man, do we have quite the ensemble of creative peeps to showcase! 


Maggie sure has been busy with the Daily Marker's 30 Day Coloring Challenge and -- she has put Power Poppy in the spotlight more than a few times! This image from the Power Poppy set Go Wild caught my attention because I just love the sweet way she colored it up! But, she also has an amazing creation using the rose image from this set -- click HERE to see. 'Whoa!' is all I have to say about both of them!

Spring is surely in the air with this clean and classy wonder done by the hands of Meg Shea!  I just love this time of year when the flowers we stamp can match the flowers that we are starting to see sprout out in real life yards and garden spaces! Meg used Power Poppy's new stamp set Natural Beauties for this one. If you want to get a real chuckle check out her IG post HERE to see one of the side effects of getting her fingers inky! I can honestly say, in my 17 years of stamping, I have never pulled off a feat like that! HA! 

Goodness gracious -- would you check out this eye-popping, jaw-dropping creation from Gloria Stengel? The robust reds and vivid yellows just make my heart sing with "happy!" Gloria used the Power Poppy digital stamp set Tulips in Hobnail Pitcher to whip up this pure delight for the eyes! 

Karen Wallace fashioned a card that is positively pretty in purple! I love the depth in Karen's coloring and that pop of blue is just the perfect touch! Just in case you were wondering, Karen used Power Poppy's digital stamp set called Everything's Rosy! 

And if that inspiration just isn't enough, why not click on over to see THIS CARD by Emily White -- such a breath of spring! Or, you could also hop on over and leave a little love in the form of a comment to Nancy for THIS card. Or, pop in and see THIS vibrant beauty by Patti Willey! Goodness sakes alive -- so much inspiration out there folks! I honestly could go on with about a dozen other links!

BUT...... WE HAVE MORE EXCITEMENT TO SHARE TODAY! In just a matter of days, a brand new member of our Instant Garden will be rearing it's pretty little face -- just in time to share a little spring! I couldn't resist sharing a little sneaky peek! While this image below is probably less than 10% of the overall image, it is even stunning in my humble opinion. So, my digital gardeners -- mark your calendar for April 5th and know Marcella has another beautiful bunch of blossoms that you will soon be able to color up with reckless abandon!

And on that fine and beautiful note, it's time to stalk the Bloomies to see what fun ways they've put the creative sides of their brain to use!

And that, my friends is it for us today! We hope you leave with so much mojo that you just can't contain yourselves!! ;-) Coming up Monday, more creative influence is headed your way. Why? We will have a very special guest in the house! Mindy Baxter of "My Creative Scoop" will be hosting another episode of Inspire Me Monday... so you will definitely want to tune back in to see what she's whipped up to help you kick off your creative week!

See you then!
