True Friend



There are days, like today, that I just LOVE what I do. I'm so incredibly fortunate to work with Papertrey Ink in the capacity that I do. For those of you who don't know, I'm Nichole Heady's assistant (which comprises a lot of interesting things), as well as the newsletter editor. My responsibilities are growing and soon I will be wearing a new hat or two with the company. So what is so great about working with this amazing company? For me, it all boils down to the products and the people.

When I started out as a design team member, I was totally in heaven. I had already been a loyal PTI customer for about 6 months at that point (remember those very first sets? Paper Tray, Green Thumb?) and loved Nichole's style. Since then, I've been along for one of the best rides of my life. The growth has just been so much fun to watch.

I whipped up this card so quickly the other day using one of the sets from the last release, In Bloom. I love the sentiment with this set, and the flowers are so beautiful. Unfortunately, I stamped this with Versafine instead of Memento, but I'm still pleased with the way it turned out. The color combination was inspired by this week's CAS Challenge on SplitCoast - the summery feel is light and breezy.

Thanks for letting me share my Papertrey Ink love today. I hope you have a wonderful weekend. Be well,
