It's Friday!! Woo-Hoo!! I am so looking forward to this weekend!! And......I am so excited to share the card I made using Power Poppy's newest digital image called Tulips in Hobnail Pitcher. Isn't it gorgeous? The tulips are so beautifully detailed (typical Marcy style... ;), and that pitcher!! I tell ya, the minute I had access to this beautiful image, I got right to coloring it.
Can I make a confession? Okay...here goes....Before designing for Power Poppy, I was totally intimidated by digital images!! Overwhelmed even. But now... I LOVE them. I can make them absolutely ANY...SIZE...I...WANT!!! How cool is that. This time around, I knew I wanted to frame them with a circle, so I chose my dies first and printed the image out in the size that fit perfectly inside my circles!! So cool!!!
I colored the tulips, with Copics, in a variety of colors, because lets face it...more color = greater Spring feeling!! Am I right?
Copics ~ Tulips: Pink ~ RV17, RV14, RV13, RV10 Orange ~ YR09, YR04, YR01 Peach ~ YR02, YR01, YR000 Yellow ~ Y17, Y13, Y11 Vase ~ BG49, BG57, BG13, BG11 Leaves ~ YG67, YG17, YG13, YG11, FYG1 Shadow ~ N4, N3, N1, N0
That sums up my project for today. Be sure to check out the following Bloom Brigade Blogs for some more weekend inspiration!!

But wait...Speaking of Spring, we took our Rhino (off-road vehicle) up to the foothills yesterday to check on our heifers (which are brought up there to graze for the winter).
Below is what we see when we first drive up. After years of drought, it's nice to see all the green!
I just love this rustic barn with the lush green hills in the background. This is where we unloaded our vehicle.
Just one of the many incredible views!! I love the lonely barn in the middle of the valley!
Okay...I don't know why, but I just LOVE thistles. My husband thinks I'm a bit "off-my-rocker" because they are a horrible weed. But their color is so brilliant, and I love all the spikes around the bloom and their leaves are super cool!
Yellow flowers can be seen growing in the crevices of the rocks scattered throughout the hills. I have no idea what they are, but I love them!!
The gang after our trip...minus me of course. Someone has to be "behind" the camera. It was a nice day trip with my husband's brother, his wife and three of their 4 boys.
I hope you enjoy a fantastic weekend.
