Inspired by...Jill!




Our Hero Arts Flickr friend, Jill Foster, has an amazing blog. She creates cards with inspiration that she gets from others and has featured over two dozen stampers so far.



This week, she shared cards that were inspired by....me! I was thrilled when she asked me to play along, and the inspiration that she got from my work is truly amazing!



In honor of Jill's work, I made a card based on this card that she created. I found a digital image of a postcard from River City Rubber Works and used the new hydrangea stamp from Hero Arts. I think I was the last person to get my hands on this gorgeous stamp, and I love it!

Please visit and bookmark Jill's blog and her photostream. She is amazingly talented and I've gotten so much inspiration from her work and I know you will, too.

Hope you all have a great weekend!

Stamps: River City Rubber Works, Hero Arts, Stampin Up, unknown postmark
Cardstock: Stampin Up, Papertrey Ink
Ink: Memento, Ranger Tea Dye Distress ink
Other: Copics, silk ribbon, paper edge distresser
