Stampin' Up Artisan Blog Hop - Welcome and Congrats!


Hello friends, and welcome to the very first Stampin' Up Artisan Design Team Blog Hop for the 2015-2016 year!  

I am so, so excited and honoured and NERVOUS as all-get-out to be making my very first "official" Artisan post today - this is a total dream come true and a huge honour!  I'm thrilled to spend the next year creating and sharing with you and I hope you enjoying coming along for the ride.  There are 20 of us on the team this year, from all around the world - we would be delighted to have you take a virtual trip with us to visit everyone!  

Since this is the first official post, we're supposed to introduce ourselves; so, hi! Hello! How are you!  I'm Shannon, and I'm thrilled to be representing Canada on the ADT.  I'm from Calgary, Alberta, where I live with my husband, our son, and our dog.  I have an unabashed love of bright colours, glitter, and twine in my crafting, and tea, baking, and Dr. Mario in the rest of my life.

I wanted to kick off the year with a toast to my fellow team members, so this card is for them.


Congrats on this "thing," ladies!  I can't wait to share it with you - cheers to a brilliant year ahead!

Today's Crush (AKA my colour pallet for this project) is below.  I love how bright and fun it is, and I love mixing colours from different families.  Check it out and "pin" it to save for later!


And one last thing before I go - speaking of Pinterest, did you know the ADT has a Pinterest board?  We'd love it if you followed along - click here to be linked to it!

Next up in our blog hop is the unbelievably talented and utterly remarkable Steffi Helmschrott - you won't want to miss what she has for you!  


Thank you SO much for visiting today, and I can't wait to see you again soon!

Cheers,
Shannon
