A Glad-iola Thank you!
Are't you glad that gladiolus comes in so many different colors? Even if they didn't, we could just make some up and I'm sure it would turn out just as well. I chose yellow to help create some blog sunshine! And gladiolus DO come in yellow for real.
Some of the PTI forum members organized a little appreciation hop for Nichole and all the hard working and inspiring ladies who keep Papertrey Ink running like a well oiled . . . or well inked . . . stamping machine!
I cannot imagine all the behind the scenes work that takes place in any stamp company! And as stampers we can get so demanding sometimes, forgetting that these are almost all small family businesses, not huge corporations with enormous teams of employees, or people get bent and forget that we're talking about ink and rubbah here, not food, air, water or shelter.
Thanks Nichole and Jenn and all the rest who help us with our playtime! I thought I'd use the gladiolus stamp because I am 'glad' I found stamping and found Papertrey Ink.
Muchas Smoochas!!! As I like to say to my kids.
