Thanks Abound

Let me tell you how amazing the people are who work for/operate/own Papertrey Ink. When PTI formulated their new inks I was delighted! I imediately purchased all the new available colors, and intended to return my old ones for credit (how amazing is THAT?!)
Then, when I didn't like the color of one of the new ones (Spring Moss), I asked where I could purchase the refill of the original ink formula and was told they were all out and would not, of course, be restocking them. Sad, I posted to the forums that I was disappointed, but still loved the other new inks, and would continue to use my old Spring Moss until it ran out. End of story...right?
Wrong. Both Nichole Heady and Jennifer Ellefson pm'd me saying they would be willing to give me their old Spring Moss refill! Can you believe it???? Not only did I get a pm from Nichole AND Jennifer, but they both were offering to GIVE me something they paid for! Amazing. And I received both just recently. So now I have two refills!
These two ladies were just so sweet in offering to donate something to a complete stranger, that I wanted to make them both a special card. Let me tell you how intimidationg it is to be making a card for THE Nichole Heady! lol.
The green one above is for her. I used Text Boxed for the image and Mega Mixed Messages for the sentiment. Colors are Ripe Avocado, Spring Moss, and Scarlet Jewel.
This one below is for Jenn. I think she'll like the colors. I love her blog and visit frequently, so it was a real treat to get something in the mail from her. And she made ME a card too! (I'll post it later)
I embossed the chocolate base with the swiss dots cuttlebug folder but it's hard to see in this photo. Stamps used are Green Thumb and Limitless labels for the sentiment. Colors are Sweet Blush, Melon Berry and Ripe Avocado.
Thank you so much Nichole and Jenn. I am thrilled with my Spring Moss ink refills!

Both cards are beautiful, and I love the color choices for each of them. I really like how you created a vine-like stem with the little flowers. So cute!
