I Love You Roses

Have you seen Power Poppy Poppies latest Instant Gardeners Digital Design Team...
Hello Power Poppy fans! Did you know something beautiful is about to sprout at the Power Poppy Shop? It’s something that’s sure to bring out the nature-lover in each of us and help us cultivate our creativity — INSTANTLY! What on earth are we talking about?! Well, here’s the dirt! 

On the 15th of EVERY MONTH, we’ll share a
new plant for your Instant Garden! 

What is an Instant Garden? It’s the new digital stamp collection from Power Poppy by Marcella Hawley. You can buy, download, print, and color the digi images with reckless abandon — in an instant! Digital stamps are nothing new to Power Poppy, but goodness gracious, since we introduced them in the summer of last year, you haven’t stopped asking Marcella for MORE! We listened! And now, we are dreaming up new images, planting them, watering with love and waiting for them to sprout each month!

With every garden, you need special people to nurture it and help it to grow. That’s why we'd love to introduce you to an amazingly talented team of Instant Gardeners a.k.a. our digital stamp design team. These women honestly need no introduction. They are household names and their talent and creativity are beyond description! We’re so excited to introduce:

Here is this months beauty:

I wanted to keep my image soft to match this paper, and little heart I found while cleaning and purging my stamping room.  I also colored the tag and the tape but I have been practicing with a different camera and I finally think I got the look I wanted but it wiped out my gray colors on my tape and sentiment.  So back to the drawing board as they say.  This rose is so easy to color up and can be found here in the Power Poppy Store:  La Vie En Rose.  While you are there check out all the rest of Marcella's wonderful creations:  Power Poppy Store

Today the Bloom Brigades are joining in on all the excitement...

Power Poppy Friday

Hopefully it is not as cold in your neck of the woods as it is here. The south is not used to these single digit temps.  Stay safe and warm.  It's a great time to create.  I am still working on my Christmas thank you cards..

I chose Power Poppies Peony Digital set.  It is available here:  HERE.    I opened up my digital image in Photoshop Elements and added the sentiment and just a little bit of the flowers to a blank page.  Then I printed it out onto X-Press It cardstock.  I like to do this when I am pressed for time.  

The beautiful doily behind my main panel is a gift from a sweet friend.  I love happy mail like this.  

Now check out what the rest of the Bloom Brigade has for you today:

Power Poppy Friday

I can't believe it is already 2015.  I have to say I am always sad to see time go so quickly but excited to see what a new year has in store for us. 
It's Power Poppy Friday and I created this quick card for today's challenge.  I love this sweet set called Bow Wow Wow.  I thought it was perfect for a thank you card for some Christmas gifts we received. 
This set is available over at Power Poppy HERE.  We would love to see you create a card and add it to the challenge this week.  All the details are HERE
Head on over and check out what the Bloom Brigade has for you:

Sorry for my long absence away from my blog.  Our children were  home for Thanksgiving and what a wonderful time we had with them.

I took a break from the last Power Poppy release and enjoyed our time together.  Just knowing I won't see them for Christmas...well we won't go there. 
This beautiful newly released digital image from Power Poppy is called Winter Pick Me Up.  I realize that the Galanthus ‘Ophelia’ that Marcy illustrated are not usually orange and yellow.  I have a sweet friend that had us over for dinner and her favorite color is orange so I wanted to give her a little thank you.  (she doesn't know I stamp so it will be an extra surprise).  I just love the pussy willows that Marcy included.  The lady that took care of my sisters and I had pussy willows and we would pick them and rub them on our cheeks.  They were soft and fuzzy.  Great memories. 
This set is available for immediate gratification over at the Power Poppy store:  Winter Pick Me Up.
