Thank you, Nichole!

Hi Nichole,

I might be the only person who didn't make a thank-you card for tonight's surprise, but life has been super busy, and stamping has been on the back burner. I thought this picture of my dog, Teddy, would bring a smile to your face though. I have been busy working on my first lung cancer 5K and on my husband's senate race, and Teddy always makes me smile at the end of the day! And we all thought you could use a smile, or one big electronic group hug.

So I just wanted you to know how much we all appreciate the work you have put into PTI. Everything has been wonderful - the products, shipping, customer service, blog hops, release night.... I love this hobby, which has become all the more exciting since having found you. I always look forward to your posts and the PTI DT projects; I have learned that when life does not allow for real vacations, PTI provides brief escapes from reality, and I can't thank you enough!



Quick Card

Last night I was antsy and decided the only thing that would help me fall asleep was to craft something, so I pulled out my new SU! set called Aviary and went to town. It was great! Many thanks to Marilyn for including me in her club again.

This was my first time in my craft room in weeks - my husband and I were joking that he goes in there to use the paper trimmer more than I do now. It's true! He's been making tons of note cards for himself. Here's what I created:



No sentiment yet since I haven't decided who I will send it to, but I hope you liked it! Thanks for stopping by. And thanks to everyone for all of their comments and encouragement about the lung cancer walk. I really appreciate it! I've been working hard, so hard that I haven't been able to use my ticket die or stamps from last month. THAT'S BUSY, I think!

Supplies {by SU! unless otherwise noted} 
Stamps: Aviary, Background Basics Text (PTI)
Paper: Very vanilla, lilac, patterned paper (PTI)
Ink: Blue Bayou, Crumb Cake
Other: mini clear button, Enchanted Evening Saton Ribbon (PTI), twine (PTI)



Round & Round Thank You

Hello everyone! Here's a card that I made a while ago, saving it for a night when I am too tired to make anything new. Did I say tired? Very. Tired. I am coming down to crunch time organizing the lung cancer walk, and work has been kicking my butt, but it's all a good kind of tired. :) I do want to say sorry to my Papertrey Dolls whose blog challenges I have not been able to play along in. I feel really badly, but in my heart I support you! I dream of getting back to my craft room soon.

I used the real wood paper on this one again, and I just love the striped ribbon! Thanks for stopping by and have a great night!
