Thankful for Pine!

My dear, sweet friend Pine (Heather Nichols) released her first stamp set for Papertrey Ink this past weekend, called Rustic Branches. This is her design... start to finish, and I am SO proud and excited for her!!!



I had the privilege of being with her (and 20 of our closest friends) at a retreat center in Wisconsin during the release. It was so exciting to watch her face as her set went live on the Papertrey site at midnight on Friday! We all stood around her, with glasses of champagne, ready to celebrate the stroke of midnight! I created this card for her, to say thanks for letting me share in that joy!

The set is so beautiful... made up of branches and wreaths and everything Pine!

Thanks for stopping by!
