Inspiration for card designs

A friend of mine - Helen Jolly - has just started a blog called "Card and a Half" which aims to give you a sketch challenge every month.  There are also some prizes to be won each month from different sponsors.

If you get stuck for ideas on how to get started on a card design, or you find yourself in a bit of a rut as far as creating different cards, then this site is for you.  The first challange has been posted and I have had a dabble with it.  For those of you that are unfamiliar with how sketches work, they are really simple.  You just take from the sketch what you want.  You can copy it exactly, or you can just use it as a base idea.  And everything inbetween!  It's YOUR card to do with as YOU like!

Some hop on over to Card and a Half (the name of the blog - I suspect - is a nod to Helen's FAVOURITE food in the world....chocolate!  She tells us that there is always a block of the Cadbury's stuff in the house!).  Join in on the fun and check out the wonderful works of art by some very talented cardmakers!
