Hi friends! I saw some exciting news the other day - I was picked as one of the Peeps of the Week over on the Power Poppy blog!!! It's so fun to see your own card up on a stamp company's blog!
Then the next day, I got some happy mail - some new stamps from Power Poppy! A dear friend gifted me some Power Poppy stamps (thank you so much, sweetie!!!) and I was so excited, I was squealing! LOL I absolutely love gerbera daisies, and I immediately inked up this gerbera daisy stamp from Power Poppy's Glads and Gerberas Stamp Set. There is one particular color of gerbera daisy that I always look for, a deep reddish/salmony/orange-ish color. Something about that color just calls my name. I love the reds and yellows, but that orange-y red flower is the one I crave when shopping for gerbera daisy plants.
So I tried to color these flowers up in that orange-y red color that I love so much. I think I came close, if a bit more vivid than the real flowers would be. :-) I stamped a sentiment from the same set above the flowers and tied some twine around the flowers for a sweet little accent. I'm keeping this card as flat as possible so I can pop it in the mail to a sweet friend.
I'm also entering this card into this week's Peep of the Week challenge on the Power Poppy blog. If you have some Power Poppy stamps, why don't you play along too? You never know if you might be the next Peep of the Week!!
