Sunny Harvest


Welcome to day 2 of the Power Poppy new release.  Sunflowers are another way to usher in the fall season.  I have so many that are blooming in my garden right now.  



Bittersweet and Chinese lanterns.  What a wonderful combination.  Bittersweet has a very special meaning to my family.  My dad has a patch he picks each fall and puts it on my mom's resting place on her birthday.  She always loved it and would decorate our house in the fall with the bittersweet we would pick and dry.  

I stamped out my image onto X-Press it cardstock and colored it with the following Copic markers:

Y15,17,19, YR09, 04, R14,29, YG13, 25, B000

It is so difficult to photograph oranges and reds.  But they are my favorite colors.

Farmer's Market




Welcome to day one of Power Poppy's new release.  As we usher in the fall months with the sound of the cicadas and the smell of bonfires who doesn't think of apple season, farmers fresh produce, and pumpkins.  This set is sure to fulfill all those needs.


Living near the mountains of North Carolina allows us to have fresh apples in the fall.  The orchards here are full of people and it is always a fun time to say the least.  Apple pies, turnovers and sauce are all on my list this fall.  
This beautiful set is sure to please.  I stamped my image onto X-Press It cardstock and colored with Copic markers Y13,15, R59, 27, YG 03,17, E30,35,37,55,99 and N5.

Pretty simple card but I like to make it simple when you have an amazing image to color. The sentiments and the rest of the stamps in this set are perfection.

Now hop on over to the rest of the Bloom Brigade to see what they have in store for you:

The Earth Laughs in Flowers


Welcome to Power Poppy's Free For All Friday.  I had some time this week to sit down and color up some images.  It always relaxes me.  I try to use old supplies that have not seen any love for ages.  


This image is the newly released digital image from Power Poppy called Geraniums.  I could only wish mine looked this colorful.  We have had zero rain for months.  Even with the tropical storm that hit we didn't get a drop.  So I will have to dream through Power Poppy and Copics that my flowers are not brown. 

I used R14, R22, R27, Y13 and Y15, YG03, and G94
