Just breathe

Good morning! Power Poppy is blooming with excitement today. We have several things to share with you, including the newest Digi if you missed it yesterday called Peony Love. Available for instant coloring, with purchase.  ;-) 

The new Power and Spark challenge is up with our host Miss Katie. She is giving us a doozy of a challenge this month with May flowers. A doozy, as you have to actually try and pick a favorite flower from Marcy's gorgeous collections. Yea right, that is almost impossible. We would love for you to give it a try though and play along!  

Really not sure how you can pick a favorite. But I picking Climbing Clematis that is printed on white cardstock and colored with various Copic markers. Very simple design with a textured panel behind the flower panel. A die cut pennant folded over in the corner and added sequins to the center. Some sparkle and voila!

Life is busy for most of us I can imagine and this song by Jonny Diaz speaks volumes to me right now called Just Breathe.  I am reminded that all of "this" is just fluff and sometimes you need to just sit back and breathe.  Some things are just what they are, so take a minute and relax with me today and Just Breathe!

Oh, Stacy girl! WOW! I love this card and your amazing coloring - it's stunning, and the flower petals are so amazing! They have such a translucence with the colors you've added - outstanding! And I love your layout with the embossed background and that sweet little pennant with the sequin! Stunning, sweet friend! And I LOVE "Just Breathe" by Jonny Diaz! I love listening to our morning program when I wake up and hear it. We all need to remember to just breathe! Love you, and Happy Mother's Day - you're a great mom!! Hugs! xoxo

You know what my favourite line from that song is “lay down what’s good and find what’s best”. Such a great reminder (I love this song too, I always turn it up when it comes on) :)

Lovely work with the clematis too friend! I hope you have some sweet moments this weekend to breathe and soak in the love from your family!

Your clematis and butterflies look absolutely real, Stacy. Amazing coloring. It sure would be hard to pick a favorite, but I do have a couple that stand out in my mind. Yes, just breathe, pick your priorities, remember your limitations. Take care, Stacy.

Have never heard this song before, but today it is what God knew I needed to hear. My sweet hubby of 40 years is moving into the final stage of MS and our life is truly in chaos. So thanks for this gift.
Your card is also like a breath of fresh air. So very lovely!
