Happy Birthday Power Poppy Hop








Can you believe it has been a year since Marcella took a huge leap of faith and started to share her dreams and talent with all of the world.  Today we are celebrating that one year mark with a huge bash Marcy style.  The design team has created some surprise  eye candy just for Marcy and all of you to honor this big day.  For my card today I chose this awesomely adorable set called Short Stacks.  It is available over at Power Poppy HERE.


One of the things I love the most about all of this is that it is a surprise for Marcy and you all get to join in. 
We were each to write a personal message telling Marcy how much we adore her.  She is so easy to love.  Her nature is the kindest of the kind.  So here is my little note to her:


Ms Marcy:


From the  bottom of my heart thank you so much for bringing me along on your journey this last year.  I know this was a dream come true for you and we are all so proud of you.  You work so hard and it shows.  You have mind blowing talent but what is really neat is your heart is so full of love.  It has been amazing to look through the windows of your soul when you share all the posts.  Your style and unique images are at the top of the class in the stamping community.  You bring a flower to life when you create.  I really enjoy finding out all about what inspires you with each new stamp.  That is my favorite part about release week.  That inside look is what I think about when I am coloring up an image.  You make me want to plant every flower you create in my garden here in NC.  You have really opened up my eyes and educated me on all the fabulous plants and flowers that I didn't even know existed.  I think an artist that can not only create, but educate others, is what makes you really really talented and a notch above all others.  Going that extra step is always on your to do list.  May the next year bring you many wonderful and magically inspired moments.  I will be cheering you on and wishing you all the best.
hugs and much love,
Dawn






 Now it's your turn to join in. We aren't giving away any details because we want you to head on over to the Power Poppy Blog for all the details HERE.  I will say that I heard there is a $100 prize just waiting for a winner:



The rest of the Bloom Brigade has joined in the celebrations.  Here is a list to all of their creations:
