Time for a Power Poppy Hop!

Well, nothing like joining the party at the tail end, eh? My family and I took a wee bit of a trip and are just getting back to the land of the living - that's why I missed the start of Power Poppy's big reveal for August! Aren't there some fabulous images to work with in the aptly called Color Me Grateful Collection? Me thinks so!

Since this was my first go at using these stamps, I HAD TO use a few of the images from the new Well Played set! Afterall, this was my daughter just days ago after she used ALL of her birthday money to pick out a new set of Skull Candy Crushers! LOVE!

So, here's my DD-inspired creation! She helped pick the colors for this one! ;-) 

What's fun about this card is the fact that it is actually a fusion of four images from the set. The cord, the headphones, the heart and music bubble and the "soul sister" sentiment! I stamped and then colored it all up with my Copic markers! 

And, here's a peek at the inside with the fun little 45 adapters! Isn't that cute and don't you remember those? I do! I would lose a gazillion of them and then my mom would have to go buy me more. When I was 8, she bought me a little turn table for my birthday along with all the top 45s on the hit list. I look back and think -- man -- what a cool mom. I got David Bowie, Paul Simon even a little ABBA!

Anyway, I digress.....  the inside! I have to say that I thought the sentiment from the set Marcella's Mixtape was a perfect fit to use this set for a birthday! 

And that, my friends, is it! Why not let the good times roll on over to the rest of the Bloom Brigade to see what they cooked up for this Color Me Grateful Power Poppy Hop? Remember, the sets are LIVE and ready to be added to YOUR stamp room now! Squeel!!!!

Julie, I love how you merged several of the images to create your darling card! Those wonky panels, the bold colors, your perfect coloring of those headphones, and how you blended the cord into your sentiment are all singing together beautifully! :) AND, that is one seriously darling daughter you have there too!! It looks like she is enjoying her birthday buy immensely! :)
