Welcome!! You are probably joining me from my new Best Friend's blog. 'Wink'
I wrote my post before I realized I would be on her Next button. We had lots of fun working on today's hop and here is my take on our time together...and before you get much further I want you to know that I have admired Mikaela from afar for a while. She is super creative and such a lovely person.
One of my favourite sources of inspiration is the Artisan Design Team!! And I am lucky enough to call a few of them friends!! For this month the lovely Angie drew our names and paired us up with team members to Case (Copy and Share Everything) a third team member. The idea is to get to know each other as we decide on who to case and our approach.
And this LUCKY girl got Mikaela Titheridge from the Crafty Oink as the person to get to know better and plan out out projects..yes..Projects!! She is currently on the Artisan Design Team and it is not her first time. I was Super Excited to be paired with her!! Now I am not a complete stranger to Mikaela, but other than a few messages and showing up at the same card class here and there I would say we know each other somewhat. We became fast friends in one afternoon of zooming and planning and yes...crafting!! I felt like I was in her Summer House with her and we were having a great natter!! It was so Much fun!!
Ok so enough about our budding friendship..you are all here for a card. We decided to CASE the amazing Brenda Nelson. She is Canadian, an Artisan and a friend of Mikaela's and a new Facebook friend to me. She is super talented and we both Love her style!! She is not hopping with us today and has no idea that we picked her..y'all should look her up!! Stamp with Brenda on Instagram.
So we sent pictures of her cards back and forth and these two stood out as inspiration for our project. We decided to pair up Bubble Bath with Pretty Peacock and we both used elements from the card; stamping tone on tone and the little tag for example. Here are Brenda's cards.
