a big THANKS to Nichole Heady and the PTI team!

I'm so happy to be part of a "top secret" Blog Hop that was arranged by a couple of the ladies from the PTI forum (yay, Susan and Cathy)! We all wanted to show are heartfelt appreciation for Nichole and all that she, and the whole PTI team, do to give us such wonderful products and amazing inspiration every month! THANK YOU, NICHOLE! PTI rocks, and you all do a wonderful job!

Here is my card, using some of my newest PTI goodies:


It's a little hard to see, but I stamped a Text Style 2 background on the center circle:

The flowers are die-cut from some of my brand new PTI felt. Color combo is Hawaiian Shores, Harvest Gold, and Hibiscus Burst, although the pink flower is Raspberry Fizz felt.

Thanks for stopping by, and be sure to look in the PTI forum for the thread that contains links to all the other cards expressing our appreciation!

Supplies (all PTI unless otherwise noted):
Stamps: PTI All About You; Fillable Frames 7; Polka Dot Basics II; Text Style II.
Ink: Fresh Snow, Hibiscus Burst; Memento Black; Versamagic Turquoise Gem
Cardstock: White, Hibiscus Burst, Harvest Gold
Misc: Bitty Dot 2009 patterned paper; Felt (Hawaiian Shores, Raspberry Fizz); Beautiful Blooms 2 dies; Hawaiian Shores button; Creative Charms gems; embroidery floss
