CASE Study Challenge #29

Good morning, crafty peeps! It's the beginning of the month, and so we are sadly saying good-bye to our Muse for February, Eva Dobilas. Eva brought so much life and inspiration to our blog, and we'll miss her greatly!
At the same time, I've got the immense pleasure to introduce you to our brand new Muse. Judging from your response to the sneak peek, it was not a hard task to guess who she is, and I'm not at all surprised - she's a stamping goddess!
Please welcome Julee Tilman!!!

Hi all! My name is Julee Tilman and I'm so honored to be this month's Case Study Muse!

I live in a quiet little town in Idaho with my hubby, Mark, and we're part way through our lucky 13th year of marriage! I fell in love with stamping the first time I stamped and haven't looked back. I love color, embellishments and layout, which led me to start a little sketch challenge called Mojo Monday about 3.5 years ago. Not long after that, I decided to step out on faith and fuse what I did in the corporate world (graphic design) with my passion for stamping, and Verve Stamps was born. Now I spend my days and nights surrounded by stamps and loving this creative journey I'm on.

So that's me in a nutshell. I'm so looking forward to this month and can't wait to see everyone's inspired creations! Thanks for having me!

Super fun news, huh?? Here's Julee's inspiration card for this week, that you may recognize from the sneaky peek:

Now all you have to do is play with us!

Here are the deets:
1. Create a paper crafting project (card, layout, off-the-page item), based on provided inspiration (being a featured creation, made by our Muse).
2. Post your creation on your blog or an online gallery (using a code CSC29), and link it here with the inlinkz widget below. Please provide a direct link to your post, not an entire blog.
3. A new challenge is being posted every Thursday at 12.01 AM EST, and you've got until midnight on Tuesday to submit your entry.
4. You may enter as many times as you like, but you're asked to provide a newly designed project.
5. We will choose one winner randomly from the list of players, who will receive the prize provided by the sponsor. In addition, the authors of the four most impressive creations will be awarded the Winner and Top 3 awards.
We will announce the winners on Wednesday.
