Thanks, Nichole!



This card is for a special Papertrey Ink Blog Hop today honoring one of the creators, Nichole Heady!  Papertrey Ink is one of my favorite stamp companies.  I hardly ever make a card that doesn't have something from "PTI" on it, whether it be a stamped image, ribbon, sentiment, button, ink, background, or cardstock!  Oh the cardstock!  That's what made me fall in love first.  Then it was the images like this one from Vintage Picnic.  I had been nervous purchasing clear stamps instead of the traditional red rubber stamps, but one set from PTI and everything changed for good!

PTI is always on the cutting edge of this industry, making the most versatile and high quality products.  Nichole's blog posts are amazing and she is so quick to share a technique or idea with her customers.   She listens to her customers via the Forums...if somebody states that they want a certain image or color, you can bet that it will show up in the product line-up in the very near future!

The company's customer service team is fabulous, and I always get my items very quickly after I place an order.  Nichole has brought together a "Dream Team" kind of Design Team that shares so many ideas and beautiful projects, as well.  The monthly release parties are a highlight for me, and PTI is so generous in their prize giveaways, too!  I wrote on a message board once, that Nichole should be teaching Business at a local college...she has helped build PTI into an impressive business in just a few short years!

So THANKS, NICHOLE!  For everything that you do!  You will have a loyal PTI customer in me as long as my hands can get inky! 

PS...To Julie, Jane, and Jen...you are pretty special there yourselves!
