PPP Blog Hop – No Matter the Weather
It’s time for another Paper Pumpkin Possibilities Blog Hop! I love hopping with these gals and have missed the last 2 because of subbing and not staying on top of deadlines for hopping. But, I’m back and raring to go!

This month’s is called No Matter the Weather and the sentiments are so perfect for helping to calm everyone regarding what is happening on our planet right now. This is an amazing kit! Every time I think they can’t top a month…they do!
Here are the cards the way they were designed…ok, with minor changes not worth mentioning:
I love the cards as they are so much, that I was really struggling with coming up with an alternate! And, as always, for my Paper Pumpkin Club I use only the extras and the stamps. They aren’t so sure they want to cut any cards…so I keep it simple and add some cardstock for a base and only what’s in the box and attempt to use ink colors that I know they will have from previous kits. Some of my members only do Paper Pumpkin.
I was looking through Paper Pumpkin Fan Club and the SU Demonstrator facebook pages to see if I could get inspired…there were some, but still nothing came to mind of my own creation. Then I had a youtube notice on my tablet from a Lisa Curcio as something I might like…and I did! She was teaching how to braid a card and I thought that sounded interesting. I watched, I printed out her template, and away I went! She made it so easy and it looks so cool! Love new techniques!
Here is my creation…
Oh, and I used another favorite technique…masking. I masked the galoshes so that I could put the grass around them.
While working on this today, we have had grawple, snow, rain, and an earthquake…yep…No Matter the Weather… 🙂
That is it for me tonight! Enjoy your evening as you hop on through with Terri Takashige
