Power Poppy Hues to Use

This week's Power Poppy Hues to Use is a beautiful color combo!  One of the things I love about warmer weather is all of the flowers in bloom.  One of my favorite things to do in the evening while the boys are practicing, is water my plants.  We still have hummingbirds too!  I thought it might be too warm for them, but they were still around last night.

Power Poppy Awash in Blues


Did you know that Power Poppy has a new-ish weekly challenge that is a color challenge called Hues to Use???  When I saw this week's colors I knew I HAD to play, it's Awash in Blues.    This past week, while we were in Michigan, we went to Holland.  While we were there, after putting our feet in Lake Michigan, we went to Nelis' Dutch Village.  We were able to see lots of beautiful Delft Blue Pottery!  It was gorgeous walking through looking at the pieces, even my boys were in awe!

I collect bell Christmas ornaments & had to buy one while I was there.

Many Thanks


Ever had a day like this...  I looked for a challenge & nothing seemed to catch my fancy, I looked on Pinterest to see if I could find some inspiration... nada, zilch.... then I looked through the SCS gallery & couldn't find anything there.  So I just sat down & started coloring.  I didn't like the first color combo, so I tossed it & restamped my image.    Whew!  I'm so glad I pushed through & got this card made.  And ya know what... as I was uploading this card, I saw a challenge that I hadn't looked at earlier & I got an idea for tomorrow's card!!! Win!!!

Power Poppy Power & Spark January


This month's Power & Spark challenge is to create a project with winter blooms.  I need a card to send to a friend going through a rough time & I found out her favorite color is purple.  I don't like purple & don't have purple dp, so I paired it with black & made it work!  I've made these blooms several different colors but not purple & I think they turned out really pretty! *grin*   One of my goals for this year is to use more digi stamps, I think they are gorgeous, but just don't take the time to print them out & use them.
