Hi there! I'm so glad you could pop in today for a little birthday celebration. Guess who is turning 1? Can you believe that Power Poppy has been enabling bloom enthusiasts for a solid year now? The time has flown by, that is for sure! It seems fitting that we are just entering Spring too, doesn't it? :) So, unbeknownst to the Bloom Whisperer herself, the Bloom Brigade has been conspiring to do this day up right! So how about a little birthday blog hop, hmmm?
Now this isn't any ordinary blog hop. Did I mention we wanted to do this day up right? Well, you can check out all of the details on the Power Poppy Blog. I will let you in on a little secret though....there is a BIG prize on the line.......take a look at this, will ya.....
That is one gigantic carrot to dangle, isn't it? Wanna know how to win this big ol' gift certificate? It is going to involve some hopping, some counting, and some mouse clicking. Intrigued? Well, you will have to check out all of the details on the Power Poppy Blog. :)
So before you jet outta here, can I show you my birthday card made especially for this day? Ok, I'll try to be quick.....
I just had to use the Short Stacks set again! Those sweet little stacks of lovelies are just waaaay too fun to color and I always think a cupcake is a good idea, so I chose this image from the set. I stamped it with Memento's Tuxedo Black ink onto white card stock and then colored it with Copics. I used kraft card stock for my base and first layer and then layered a couple of pretty papers to make my little short stack feel at home. The sentiment is also from the Short Stack set and I stamped it right on to some of the patterned paper with Papertrey Ink's Smokey Shadow ink. I die cut my colored image with Spellbinders Labels Twenty Two and sponged some Ranger Distress Ink in Frayed Burlap to ground my image a bit. I punched a couple of slits in the sides of my die cut so I could thread the ribbon through and tie my bow. I added a button and a silver bloom charm for a little extra pretty and then used some Ranger Glossy Accents and my Wink of Stella clear pen to give a little shine.
That short stack looks party ready, don't you think? Well, I'm hoping that one Peep-in-Chief thinks so! **Marcella, I hope that you have a wonderful day today celebrating Power Poppy's first year and here is to many more to come! I have loved every minute of this journey with you and all of the amazing Power Poppy ladies. What you have been able to accomplish in one year is incredible and I cannot wait to see what all you have in store for all of us in the future. I am so proud of your success and even more proud to be a part of your beautiful company. Sending much love and gratitude to you, dear friend, on this special day!
Ok, so now are you ready to see what the rest of the Bloom Brigade has created to celebrate Power Poppy's big day? Make sure you leave them a little love along the way and check out the blog to find out how to win that a-mazing prize! ;) Thanks so much for stopping by and sharing all of the fun...it just makes it that much more special! Oh, and remember......Power Poppy's April stamp release is just around the corner so pop back by soon, ok? Until then, take care! :)
