Tying the Knot at Power Poppy

Happy Friday and some wedded bliss to Mrs. Marcy! That is right our beautiful and talented leader, friend and mom is getting married tomorrow. We are all so very excited for Marcy and Doug and have a fun little hop to share with you. 

I have a special note for the new couple to be. Congratulations you guys! This is so very exciting, wish I could be there to celebrate with you all. The best advice I can give is to keep God first in your marriage, Ecclesiastes 4:12  says: Though one may be overpowered, two can defend themselves. A cord of three strands is not easily broken. I truly believe that if you keep God first you will truly be blessed beyond your dreams. Many blessings and happy years ahead for you all. Woot Woot!!!

My wedding card to you is using Dream wedding and a little different than the normal wedding card. This paper was my color inspiration to use with the blues and pinks. I had to use a little bit of blue as its my favorite. Besides isn't a wedding suppose to have something blue in it? hee hee Die cut the images after they were colored with Copic markers and layered onto a matching decorative die. Added some flourished pearls behind the image panel. A little bit of sparkle to the pink champagne  :-)  and then my sentiment on a strip of vellum and pearls to tie it off. Voila!  Happy wedding day Marcy!

Locker hangers

Morning. You just have to love football season! The team mom puts out a list for the Parents to sign up to decorate the lockers of each player the night before the games. You know I always sign up and this year I actually took a picture of what I am putting up on their lockers. They always include candy of some sort since that is what the kids like most about the decorations. ha ha  Walking down the hallway is pretty cool though when you see everyone's locker. Here are the twins hangers and now I need to finish up the other players and get them ready. 

These pennants are from an old Spellbinders die set and ODBD Large Numbers die set. After I did these I thought second about die cutting all the pennants but you only live once as they say.  :-)  No sparkles the boys said, but the stickers were cleared they said. ha ha  I used a helmet I found in photo shop and enlarged it with the sentence for the team we are playing tomorrow. Then colored part of the helmet piece to make it more our colors. A few sequins and voila.

Chunky ho ho ho

These snowman are too fun and so chubby. This is Ho ho ho Snowmen from Sassy Cheryl's and one of my new snowman for the year. Usually I buy 2-3 new snowman stamps each year but this year I went with a digi for the first one.  Haven't found my other new ones yet. 

Easy peasy design with just a Spellbinders frame and a heart die cut border. A few die cut snowflakes and sparkles to finish if off. Voila!

Thinking of you

Good morning. Finally had a few hours in the stamp room this weekend which was awesome! So I will have a few posts this week.  :-)

Here is another one of the new stamps I bought from Whimsy called You Moove me. Isn't he so cute. I colored him with various Copic markers and yes, a little too heavy on the purple for the bell as it bleed over a little. EEK. A few die cuts for the grass and the picket fence. Some sparkle to finish it off. Voila! 
Crazy busy this week, our new kitchen counter and back splash is getting installed. ACK!!! I am so stinking happy its finally here. The kitchen is a wreck but once it is complete I will share pictures. Thanks for stopping by.

Welcome 2017 Football Season

Let's get ready for some FOOTBALL!!!!  Woot Woot!!! What a showing we had last night for the first 2B league game for our Liberty Team. This was quite the game and WIN... Yes Win for our Liberty Boys. They won with a 52-8 ending score. This is our lineup of players with the twins #10 and #55, Normally 10 and 6 but Nathan had to fill in for another player that was out this game. 

Curtis had quite an impressive start for his Sophomore year as QB, with 2 thrown touchdown passes and 2 run in touchdowns himself. GASP!!!  It was so exciting. Nathan had several plays that were extremely helpful for our running backs himself. Both made the news reel last night.  😍  Ofcourse I am not on any social media other than my blog, so the Facebook posts, twitter and instagram feeds that I am seeing are through everyone else. Guess I will have to join them all today. HA HA!!! Kidding.... We will be getting the paper tomorrow to have as a keep sake with all the teams accomplishments on the field tonight. A team effort and such a great way to start the season. We are so proud of you all... especially the twins.  Happy Saturday everyone!

Merriest of tags

Happy Friday night lights! Tonight is our first league game. WOOT WOOT!!! We found out earlier this week that Curtis will be the starting QB all season. GASP! Very excited and nervous at the same time. He is totally calm and ready for it, which is good. Us on the other hand.... ha ha Exciting season ahead for sure. Now you didn't come to hear about that, you came for Power Poppy news. Marcy has some fun things on the PP Blog so check it out. In the meantime check out the new digi I played with.

 Christmas is coming and that means the orders for tags are here from friends and family. I created a monster a few years back when I created a few. Once word spread now they are wanting them each year. Sheessh.. Its all good. In keeping my sanity I do create two of each one so that it makes it easier on me with trying to give different ideas. :-)  These tags are using Merriest Berries from our Instant Garden collection. 
Both of these are a little similar and at the same time different for variety. The awesome thing about digi's is you can pick any size you want for tags or cards Yea! I have some added sparkle to both of them and sequins to just the gray and pink one. Tied off the ribbon tops with some button and silver cord. Voila!

Special Delivery

Good morning. I tell myself that I will not order more stamps until I use more of what I have. For the most part that has been the case, until I came across this little guy. Oh isn't he sweet? He is called Baby Giraffe from Whimsy stamps and my first from Whimsy. I will admit that yes, I did order another one from them at the same time. You have to justify the shipping charge, right? hee hee   Anyways... 

After he was stamped on white cardstock and colored with Copic markers I die cut using stitched rectangles. Then layered onto more kraft to match the base. Some faux stitching around the banana cardstock and a few die cut hearts and stars to accent. Finished him off with a sentiment from a Taylored Expressions set and voila! Have a wonderful day.
