CASE Study Challenge #181

Hello and welcome to a new month of CASE'ing fun at CASE Study! We held you in suspense this time around but it's high time we reveal our new Muse - Joni Nina Andaya!! Welcome, Joni!


Hi I'm Joni I am a mom to a 9 year old beautiful girl and a wife to my supportive husband of 12 years. I have been scrapbooking since my daughter was born, but my first love is really making cards for friends and family. I discovered blogging 3 years ago but did not really start my own until the year of 2012. I just recently got my Bachelor of Science in Software Engineering and long awaited diploma two weeks ago. In my spare time I love to create simple cards and sometimes love to add dimensions and layers to my craft. I think my favourite is creating my own background and love to play with Distress Inks. For me the rewarding part is when you make something and you get to share it with others. I am so honored and humbled that I get to share my creativity with others. You can find me at: http://jonininaandaya.blogspot.com/

We're up for an amazing month, crafty peeps! Here's why... behold, the first gorgeous inspiration card by our Muse.


Traditionally, before we get to the DT samples, we have a pleasure to introduce our fabulous Guest Designers who kindly join us in March - yes, again we have TWO! 
Sarah and Kate - big welcome, ladies!!
