Hello Friday!!!

Hello all and happy Friday! I don't know about you, but the weekend is sure welcome here in my house! We've been traveling so much for sports that my laundry pile is starting to look like it might just attack me! So, I'll be getting "domestic" this weekend! ;-)

Well, Fridays here on my blog mean it's time to share some Power Poppy goodness! Can I get a "Yee-haw?" :-) I knew when I created this card I had to make a birthday card for a sweet lady who I really, really, really need to catch up with! So, here goes!

I used Marcella's Mix Tape Vol. 1 for this "punched up with color" creation. The paper is a mix of Echo Park's Everyday Eclectic. I stamped the little party horns on Cougar Opaque Classic White using Memento Tuxedo Black and then picked up some of my Copic markers in coordinating colors to color them up. You can also see that I added some razzle dazzle with the help of some Diamond Stickles.  The ruffle border is thanks to a Stampin' Up trim. I added a button (BasicGrey) threaded with some Twinery twine. The fun orange polka dot is Candy Dots Fabric Tape from Maya Road. 

Here's a close up of all that sparkle!

And that, my friends, is it! Did you remember each week you could be a Power Poppy Peep of the Week? Each week the Bloom Brigade chooses a couple customer creations (based on their fabulousness) and those creations are honored on the Power Poppy Blog and also on the Power Poppy Pinterest boards! Woo Hoo! You can check it out HERE! 

And, as you are hopping, don't forget to pay these fine ladies from the Bloom Brigade a visit. They have plenty of inspiration blossoming over on their blogs!
