Just a couple challenges..........

Happy Monday- I just wanted to take a few to show you some quick and fun cards I made this last week. I was participating in some of the verve activities and used a bunch of their sketches and this is what I came up with. I have found that coloring all those images takes a LONGGGGG time and I am not making that many cards- but using smaller images and/or just adding sentiments to card is making it much easier. Plus I have found some wonderful sketches.
So I would love to hear where you all get your inspiration? A particular stamp company? A sketch? Just thinking them all up on your own? I know sometimes I get in a rut and feel like my mind is only putting out the same sketch over and over so I have a book of sketches that I pull out when I need the direction!

your cards are great and your right about the coloring taking awhile to do (at least for me). I get me inspiration from challenges and every once in a while I come up with an idea all my own.

Your cards are lovely Heidi! I get inspired by so many things, cute stamps mostly though, but that tends to be my downfall too! ;) lol

I think both of these cards are really lovely, and I am like you - I seem to get into a rut and pull out a card sketch book or try some challenges to get me going too. :) Kel
