Grateful...

I have been stamping now for only about 3(ish) years.  I knew when I was first introduced to it, I would be a lifer!  I love this hobby and it just brings me so much joy and STRESS relief!  I have used alot of different brands of stamps but I would have to say once I found PTI, I just fell in love!  The stamps are so versatile and just so fun to use!  The quality of their product is fabulous and that is so important!  More than that though is the inspiration that we all get from one of the owners of Papertrey Ink, Nichole Heady!  She is so amazingly talented and shares that with each of us!  She has inspired so many and she has transformed the world of stamping for me and so many others!  You can tell she really pours her heart into this craft! 

With that, I have to say Thank you Nichole, Julie, and Jane for providing us with something that we can love just as much!  It's amazing how we can all have such an addiction to paper!  :)  So here is a simple little card just for her and the Papertrey team!
