A Thank You to Nichole (Blog Hop)

Who is Nichole?  Well, she is one of the single most influential and inspiring crafters to me.  She is someone who has helped me find and define my style and has shown me what to look for in a card.  Her creations both as stamps sets and the cards and projects she makes with them never cease to amaze me.  If I had one word to describe her it would be GENIUS!  Many companies are trying to follow in her footsteps and be and do what she does, because she tends to set the trends.  She is one of the owners of Papertrey Ink and this is a blog hop in her honor.  A thank you for her inspiration and hard work. 


I wanted to make a card truly inspired by Nichole.  I wanted simple but something that made a statement.  I hope I achieved that. 

This layout is based on the Clean & Simple Sketch #104 that you can see here.


Nichole, thank you for your hard work!  Thank you for making me a better stamper!  Thank you for providing the tools that you have that have truly changed and defined this industry!  I am inspired by you constantly and am challenged as a paper crafter at the same time.  I am very thankful to you for that!
