Thank You

Scroll down for the Zva Creative August Blog Hop post.


It's no secret that I {heart} Papertrey Ink. I came across Papertrey Ink for the very first time when we visited my SIL Lisette and her family in the UK in October 2008. We made cards together and she used some of her PTI stamps. I really liked the stamps but it took me another year to finally place my first order. I started off with 3 stamp sets, but ever since I've ordered many more stamp sets. As soon as I placed my first order I also became a member of the PTI forum. It's a great place of wonderful women and one guy. Susan (aka MadSky), one of the members is hosting a special blog hop today to show our thanks and appreciation to Nichole Heady for all she does for PTI. Nichole is an amazingly talented card maker and stamp designer, and I love her work. Her projects may look clean & simple, but she always comes up with great and innovative ideas to use the stamps. When I am not too sure about a new set it are often Nichole's projects that sell me on that particular stamp set.

Here's the Thank You card that I made for Nichole. PTI has given me lots of joy. I had never thought I would enjoy stamping so much. Before I discovered PTI I was never into stamping, but now I really love doing it. I love the creative process of selecting cardstock, stamps, ink, ribbon and other embellishments to create a card. Of course my card is also meant Julie, Jane, Jenn, the DT members, and everyone else at PTI. Thank you all!
