A little personal note to Miss Marcy…
My dearest Marcy,
Today we’re all here to wish you an amazing 1 year anniversary of Power Poppy! I hope this inky adventure continues for a long time my friend. One day, and soon, we’ll meet in person and I’ll get to meet one of my heroines in real life. Not only do you create wonderful works of art that you allow us to color but you bring great meaning to the word friendship and unconditional love of a true friend. I wish you another amazing year of stampy success and beyond for Power Poppy and may it continue to enrich your life as you enrich each of ours! Many ginormous hugs to you! Congrats on your business success my friend! It’s gunna take you places girl…
Love & hugs,
Now on to a rather different kind of birthday greeting today…
I decided to go for a blue birdie kinda birthday! Yup… I used a holiday themed stamp for a birthday card. Well… don’t some people have winter birthdays?!?! LOL! I highlighted the blooms and birds by using colour and then leaving the holly to be more of a little textural back ground element; so I left it uncoloured.
If you look a little closer, I used the Paper Tole method of popping up my coloured elements like the birds and the blooms on my card front.
Stay tuned because on SUNDAY we begin our new stamp release sneak peeks! Yup.. we have more Power Poppy beauties to add to your stamping stash!
Now… off you go on a little adventure through the remainder of the lovely and talented Bloom Brigade designer blogs...
