Power Peep Friday

 It's Power Poppy's Friday Peep of the week.  

I chose a simple card today with some fall like colors to match our weather here in NC.  I love this time of year and all it has to offer.  This set is Power Poppies Dynamic Duos..Glads and Gerberas set.  

I gave it a bold fall look by using my Y16 and YR colors in Copics.  Simple card but I like the way it turned out.  Now it's  your turn.  Check out what the rest of the Bloom Brigade has to show you and then head on over to the Power Poppy Blog for all the details.

    Power Peep Friday

    It's Friday already and time for another Power Poppy Peep of the Week.  Will you be our next Peep. 

    This week I chose to use the sketch from Sweet Sunday's Sketch Challenge.

    Then I chose the stamp set Farmer's Market from Power Poppy's latest release.  I needed an aniversary card and thought this basket with Enjoy from the Power Poppy set.. was perfect for this card. 

    This was a pretty simple and quick card to create once I had the sketch.  I love this little basket of cauliflower.  It reminds me of days gone by. 

    Now it's your turn. Head on over to the Power Poppy blog for all the details and a place to link up your creations.  But first check out all this inspiration:

    It's time for another Peep of the Week over at Power Poppy.  What a great way to spend your long Labor Day weekend for those of you in the US.  This week I chose the sketch challenge over at Splitcoaststampers to get me started.  

    I used the newly released set Countryside Bouquet Deluxe.  You can find the set over at the Power Poppy store:  Country Bouquet Deluxe Stamp Set.  A pretty simple card but I loved this sketch and thought this stamp was perfect for it.  I needed a birthday card for my daughter.  She is coming to visit this weekend for her birthday. I am super excited as I don't get to see my girls very often. 

    Here is the sketch on SCS.  Can you believe there have been 503 sketches.  WOW.  I feel like a sketch really gets me started on a card.  Check out the sketch challenge HERE

    Fresh Apples

    It's that time again..The Power Poppy Pop Goes the World Challenge. This week we travel to Portofino, Italy.  The challenge is to use the above pictured colors in your creation. Here is a link to the challenge: Power Poppy Pop Goes the World

     I chose the newly released Farmers Market stamp set. 

    These apples are so fun to color.  I am a huge fan of apples. We planted 2 apple trees to memorialize a family member this last fall.  I didn't realize it takes 2-4 years for them to produce. I will just have to color this image while I patiently wait. 

    I used turquoise, red, yellow and green to match the challenge rules this week.  We eat a lot of organic produce and I love that Marcella added the word organic to the apple crate. 

    Copic colors I used are:  
     E30,35, 37
