November Power and Spark

Hello Everyone!!  I'm excited to be bringing you this month's Power and Spark Challenge which is a Thankful Challenge!  As you know I'm an Aussie, which means that we don't have Thanksgiving here as that is a uniquely North American holiday but that doesn't mean we don't have things to be thankful for.  I am and will always be thankful for my dear hubby and gorgeous children, my parents who have always been there for me and my bestie who has been through the highs and lows beside me for the last 30yrs.  November also brings the 97th Birthday of my Grandmother, a very, very special lady in my life who I will always adore and be truly thankful and blessed to have in my life.  On the world calendar, 11 November 2018 brings the 100th Anniversary of Armistice Day - a time to reflect and be thankful for all those who have and are still serving for our country.  So what are you thankful for??  Play along with us and make a Thank You or Thanksgiving themed project and link up to the Power Poppy Blog!

I'm also thankful that here Down Under that it is Spring!  So I've reached for Flower Bomb and made it very large, added the sentiment at the top and printed it out and coloured it with a range of Copics.  It really doesn't need much embellishing at all as those beautiful blooms are taking centre stage, so I've matted it with some cream card, added a pink base with a border punch bottom and a few enamel dots to accent.

Stamps - Flower Bomb (Power Poppy)
Ink - Printer
Paper - X-press It Blending Card, Cream, Pink
Accessories - Copics, ODBD Double Stitched Rectangles, Martha Stewart Deco Fan Border Punch, Enamel Dots

Want to see what the Bloomies have been thankful about, check them out here.....

Don't forget playing along, linking up gives you the chance to win a $50 Shopping Spree at the Power Poppy store!!

That's all from me today, thanks for popping by and hope you are inspired to stamp and play along with us this month!

Ohhh, I love how you've let these gorgeous flowers fill up your card. Stellar coloring as I always see on your cards. Love the design with the punched border. Yes, there is always something to be thankful for, especially when you have a loving family and friends.
