Weekend Inspiration

Well, it's far too soon to say that my mojo has returned, but I was inspired to few stamped items this weekend.

My good friend Kim "Nutsymuhl" was selected to be the Featured Stamper on Splitcoast this weekend! This is a huge honor, and she is totally deserving of it. You can check out her amazing gallery, here. The Featured Stamper Challenge is to CASE a card made by the FS. Here is the card I chose to CASE.

My card uses my favorite DP, which I have been saving for just the right moment, and also a piece of Kraft ribbon that Kim sent me last week. I thought it was only fitting to use it on her FS card. I had to dye my mini brads with Brilliance Cosmic Copper ink to match the copper CS.
