Need a creative jumpstart? Try a challenge!

Sometimes I know exactly what kind of project I want to work on, and sometimes I have no idea. A great way get started, especially when you have the post-holiday blahs, is to try a challenge. To help you, here are 3 challenges that I'm planning to work on this weekend.
First is Sketch Challenge 158 from SCS. This is called a kickstand card because the bottom of the card front is cut away, and the focal image helps the card stand up like a bike kickstand. You can change the size of the focal image. Mine will likely be bigger than the one in the sketch. Next is Beate's weekend sketch challenge. She always has great sketches! And she has a random drawing each week for a prize giveaway. In order to be considered to win, you have to link your card to the WSC thread on her blog. She also has links to other bloggers who make a card with her sketch.
And if the sketches aren't inspiring you, how about a color combo to try? This week's challenge from SCS (CC148) is Wild Wasabi, Barely Banana and Blue Bayou.
If these challenges inspired you, please post and let me know. Or tell me what inspires you when you're in a creative rut. Happy stamping!
