Wow! The PPA designers have provided yet another great template and super creative examples. I’ve got to hurry and get this one done!
Kristine’s card needed a little oomph. So I made it bigger and redder by adding a beautiful linen card stock. Better?
I have known Kristie since the 4th grade. I’m 48. Do the math. That’s a long time. She deserves much more than one card. I am certain, she will get another! This was the first time using the squares collection Framelits. I LOVE them.

I waited until the last moment to make this card for the PPA challenge 176. I was intimidated by the daunting template and the incredible cards submitted by the design team. But I am Spanish and Texan, making me determined and stubborn. So here it is!
The based is a beautiful textured slate cardstock bought at a paper distributor. Up close, you can see and feel the pin stripes. The ribbon is leftover from my football mum making days.
- Stamp: SU Best Yet
- DSP: Winter Frost
- Tools: Martha Stewart snowflake punch, large oval, decorative label, label bracket punch, Big Shot SU snowflake embossing folder
- Ink: paint shimmer platinum, MS silver embossing powder with versamark ink

I was so terrified by the Stampin’ Pretty Pals challenge of Anything but a Card. I make cards and maybe gift tags. That’s it. Some of the members of this group are so incredibly creative. They make wreaths, ornaments and other amazing marvels. All I could think of was a little party favor bag. Thank goodness for my. Big Shot.
One of my favorite old school tools is the ProvoCraft Silent Setter. Had to use this bad boy today to complete the Stampin’ Pretty Pals “Anything But a Card” challenge. It works great to reach those precarious spots for brads and grommets. Although, it does require a little muscle!
On this dreary day, the Daffodil Delight cardstock brightened up my craft room. Are you tired of the Gingham Garden yet? Now that I’ve cut into it, I can’t seem to stop using it!
