Thank you Nichole

Welcome to my post for the "thanks Nichole Heady" blog hop. Since finding Papertrey Ink 2 1/2 years ago I have enjoyed papercrafting like never before. When my card was chosen by Nichole for the GSS contest it gave me the incentive to start submitting cards for publication. I have enjoyed this so much.

I have enjoyed reading Nichole's blog and seeing all of her creations. I even found my new favorite cookbook on her blog!  
So for the card I decided to use my favorite Papertrey stamp set, Vintage Picnic. Freshly harvested apples for Nichole in a charming chartreuse picnic basket. Enjoy!
