PPA 26 Challenge- Anything But a Card

PPA (Pals Paper Arts) is a challenge blog led by demonstrators in my Stampin' Up group. This week's challenge was "Anything BUT a Card" and I'm so glad I got my box of goodies in the mail yesterday. Just in time! I purchased the tin mailbox from the $ spot at Target and was planning to decorate it for Valentine's Day. My idea is to put a small something in it each day for the "14 days of Valentine's" for my sweetie. Execution will be the challenge.

Supplies Used:
Mailbox Tin- Target $ spot
Stampin' Up- Sending Love Designer Series Paper
Stamps: A Happy Heart, I {Heart} Hearts- both from Stampin' Up
Ink: Staz-On Jet black, Stampin' Up Riding Hood Red, Stampin' Up Pretty in Pink
Other: Stampin' Up mini Heart Punch, Stampin' Up Stampin' Dimensionals
