Nothin' but GOOD Vibes!

Hello all you sweet peeps and welcome to another colorful, sparkly, energy-infused post here on the 'ole Power Poppy blog!

We start today with a bit of a look forward! Okay, raise your hands if you are ready for winter be over and spring to move on in? Wow. That's a LOT of hands! Hello to you all! Well, in my neck of the woods, we just got another six inches of the white stuff with more on the way. So, in light of those who have a bit of spring fever that just wants desperately to break out, check out our first of many good vibes!

And, if you are just longing for the day when those little flowers will start to sprout and the trees start to bud, keep in mind my fine folks that we can always have a little spring in our hearts and color up this beauty too! Hhhmmm... what would I recommend? Here are a few of my digital faves for that heavy dose of spring-time instant gratification! How about a little Blossoming Cherry? Or, French Lilac (complete with an itty bitty super cute ladybug)? Of course, there are sunshiny daffodils and tempting tulips too! Heck, take your pick from any one of Marcella's amazing florals and you're bound to make the heart a wee bit happier!

Good Vibe 2 just makes me smile that crazy big smile that you just can't help but express! After a week of radiation, Ms. Marcella is not only feeling good, but this afternoon she finishes having to hop inside an MRI machine twice a day for targeted radiotherapy. I told her, that's a HUGE reason to celebrate, don't you think? So, my sweet friends, our Peep-in-Chief is good vibe 2!

We spotted this good vibe on Instagram as Liz Vefall whipped up a beautiful creation to celebrate her mom! Did you know February 11th is Mother's Day in Norway? Well, it is and Liz cared enough to send the very best in the form of a handmade creation that is just bursting in color! She used Power Poppy's Countryside Bouquet that, I am happy to tell you, comes in both clear HERE or as a digital stamp set HERE!

Linda Paider is just one BIG good vibe this week. Check out this little number (using Va-Va-Valentines Digital Stamp Set) she whipped up for her granddaughter for Valentine’s Day! So darling! And, she entered it into our Power & Spark ‘Love to Sparkle’ Challenge. Linda’s got it ALL going on with a theme of love and a splash of sparkle. To see her full creation, hit her up over at HERE. If you need a little extra challenge, don't forget our Hues to Use weekly color challenge comes without a deadline, meaning you can traipse through all the past posts and take those colors for a test drive!

It’s always a delight to announce a Kit and Clowder coloring class featuring Power Poppy digital stamps, and this brand NEW one might just be the best yet. Alyce Keegan is the marvelous mastermind behind these classes, and this lovely soul wants you to know that YOU CAN DO THIS! Alyce shares her knowledge and assists you along with one-on-one tutoring to help you feel confident in your coloring skills. I’ve seen it happen time and again. These are absolutely great classes for beginners — though if you’re further along in your coloring, you’ll love them, too! Learn some of the secrets to bringing your coloring to another level. This session has two offerings, coloring our Hellebores and Joyful Lilies. Class members get a great discount, learn more HERE.

Special Note: If you have purchased Hellebores or Joyful Lilies previously, you are entitled to the updated illustrations offered in these classes (Joyful Lilies in a VASE, and both images larger and lighter for no-line coloring.) Send an email to and we will make sure you get your updated digis. Thank you!

What a wonderful blog post today, Julie, and I am thrilled that sweet Marcy is finishing this tough twice-a-day radiation. Praying for her and know that she needs to rest and take care of herself. We'll all be here for her. Go, sweet Marcy! And what beautiful cards from Liz and Linda...and woohoo about the Kit and Clowder classes. Signed up already! Love her coloring classes. Hugs, all! It's spring already here in South Florida! xoxo
