A Bevy of FUN -- just for YOU!

Hello Power Poppy Peeps! How's your week shaping up? We have been busy behind the scenes here at Power Poppy! Can I fill you in on a little secret? Marcella has been locked up in her creative place with her 'sidekick cat' Crema drawing the next clear stamp release. I have only seen a few snippets but, trust me, you are going to want to stay tuned for some beautiful images fit for the Fall season coming your way in a matter of weeks! Squee!

Monday, will be another Digi on the 5s release and I actually have a sneaky peek over on my blog HERE if you want a little "enabling" to add to your digi stash! ;-)

And.... if you want to let your creative juices flow and then share a bit of your artistic pursuits with all of us here, then check out this if you haven't already!

The Power & Spark B Happy Challenge is so fun and creative and is hosted by the marvelously talented Kathy Jones! Her challenge? To use something that starts with the letter "B" as a prominent part of your card! Buttons! Bows! Baubles! Bling! Blue! Brown! Goodness, you could really go all out on this one! Click HERE to read up on the challenge and then link up YOUR creation!

A few of you have already linked up some beauties! Are you ready for a little Power Poppy Parade by some of our Peeps? There are some lovelies this week, I tell ya!

This first one by Barbara Campbell is just too sweet. Don't you love that little budgie bird and how she colored this little guy up? My eye is drawn to the extra embellishments, die cut edges and soft peachy hues. Just dreamy and fun at the same time! This wasn't her only entry, if you have some time, click HERE and check out her "berry" fabulous creation that just pops with color and deliciousness! 

Judy Woodland created a real showstopper with Power Poppy's Spring Meadow Bouquet digital stamp set now didn't she? I love the bold colors and her card reminded me that the world is truly our oyster when it comes to all the mediums we can use to give these images life! Judy used her Prismacolor pencils and the results are just downright happy with a clean and classy card design!

Melody Rupple has always been a card designer I admired and this is why -- she has such a wide range of "looks" -- from clean and fresh with a punch of color to this sweet design that is masterfully colored using Power Poppy's Go Wild stamp set! Check out that ombre background she fashioned with her Distress Inks. LOVE! I need to give that a try! 

Well, sweet stamping friends, the show and tell isn't over yet by a long shot! I have the Power Poppy Bloom Brigade on standby to show off a bit of what they created this week! So, hop on over and see....

Thanks, as always, for stopping by, saying "hi", and spending a snippet of your day with us. You're the icing on our cake, sunshine in our days, and the cream in our coffee! Basically, we love you all and wouldn't be here without you! 

So have a fabulous weekend and we'll see you back here Monday for another Digi on the 5s release!
