Fr-Fr-FRIDAY! Woo hoo!

Hello and happy Power Poppy Friday to y'all! I hope spring is making a showing where you are. I have to admit, it is NOT in my neck of the woods. Can you believe that last week we had temperatures in the 70s and this week, SNOW! That. Is. Not. Fair!!!!

Want to know what else is not fair? Well, no, my dog didn't "eat my homework." She ATE my card! I am so glad that I photographed it and blogged it already because this is what I found overnight.... Waaaaaaahhhhhhhh! I was trying to stock up on my all occasion cards. My pup told me to "think again!" :-(

If I didn't love that beast, she would be relegated to the garage for a few days. But, instead, as I sit here typing my post, she's at my feet.  As you can see, I love this little lady, faults and all! ;-)

I digress! I did come here today, after all, to share my creation for this week. I knew that I had to do two things for my Friday post. I knew I wanted to play along in Stacy's Peek-A-Boo Power & Spark Challenge and second, I wanted to use the brand new digital stamp set Spring Meadow Bouquet for my card! So, here goes!

For starters, I followed this sketch below, which was Stacy's challenge! 

The fun thing about this challenge is that the circles in the sketch are actually cut outs that you were supposed to have your image "peek out" from underneath -- thus the title Peek-A-Boo! So, that's why I chose the image Spring Meadow Bouquet. I thought this larger than life image was perfect for a sketch like this because you could highlight just pieces of this showy bunch of blossoms! 

Here's a "peek" at part of the card that showcases that lovely butterfly! And, you can see I added splashes of bling too just for a little extra pizazz! 

And, here's the other little peek-a-boo window! You can see that I used my Copics to color up this image and honestly, there are too many markers to mention! I have all my favorite greens, a few yellows, shades of rose, purple, see? Too many! Here's a close up!

And that, my friends is it! Thanks so much for stopping by and sharing a bit of your day with me!

Now it’s time to take a gander at what the rest of the Power Poppy Bloom Brigade whipped up this week. I have a feeling they made “spring” their muse for their latest creations. It’s just a feeling! You'll have to make the rounds to see for yourself!

Before I go, I do have to say thank you to one of the ladies that stops by here every now and then -- DONNA ELLIS! About a month ago, I complained about losing my mojo. I told anyone who might happen to "see" said mojo to tell it to come home!!! Well she, being the sleuth that she is, spotted my mojo waiting for the bus from Tampa to Orlando. She said my mojo couldn't handle the cold weather and went south to play in the sun. I am happy to report that, while stubborn, my mojo came home! 

Stay tuned to see the mojo and me collaboration in the coming weeks! ;-) Thanks Donna!

Oh my, Julie, the dog really did eat your card! I would laugh, but I grimaced at seeing your beautiful card...eaten! Thankfully you did photograph it and post it, and I loved it! And what a sweet photo of you and her! I can almost see the sad face on her!! But, wow, I love this newest card and love the sketch you've used for this month's challenge. It's perfect, and I love the close-ups with the beautiful pieces of this new digi. Th sweet bumblebee and the butterfly are just adorable and so beautifully colored! I love this card and need to try this sketch! Well, I hope the snow goes away quickly and the warm temps come back again soon!! Hugs, sweet friend, and enjoy the weekend - and, ah, well, I hope you hide your cards better from now on! :)

Oh, no! But what a pretty card to get all chewed up. I hope she enjoyed it. I wouldn't be able to stay mad, either. Today's card is gorgeous, Julie! Fabulous how you worked it out with the sketch!

Love your peekaboo with this set Julie! And oooo that puppy would be in trouble :)

So fresh and springy with all kinds of mojo!

Davi said...

Sorry about your beautiful card, but know we all love our dogs no matter what.
Love the new peek a boo card too. Keep on card making. Edna

Ok, the look on your doggie's face speaks VOLUMES!!!!! that is a contrite and a "yes, I did it" look if I ever saw one, poor thing, I bet she knows what she did but she also knows you love her no matter what!! Ah!!! Those furry "children" we have.....
Your chewed up card is lovely, you should frame it, even if it's half gone.
And your Peek-a-boo card is gorgeous, I love this sketch from Power Poppy, I submitted a card but I have another one almost done.
Thank you for the laugh and the picture of you and your dog, she is beautiful.
Big Hugs,
Maria Rodriguez.

I laughed hysterically about the dog eating your card...he is so adorable how could you be mad at him very long. Love the the peek a boo sparkle card!

Hello Julie,

Long time no seen... gorgeous card... with a touch of dog's teeth... literally. I am sorry for your card since it was realy beautiful. I love it. This reminds me on one of my projects that was left in a dining and my kido added a touch of his saliva. :D It wasn't funny back then although. :D

Have a great day!
Hugs from Slovenia,
