My Card Creating Process (in case you were wondering)

Today, I thought I would share my card creating process.  Like most people, I usually start making a card because I have some sort of occasion that needs to be acknowledged.  But other times, I just want to stamp, or it's Friday again, and I need to post a card for the Pink Paper Bakery!!  In these situations, I go to my stamp cabinet (which is actually an unorganized pile of stamp sets spread throughout the room)  and choose a set I haven't used for awhile, or something that just catches my eye.  I then scour the internet using google image searches, looking for something beautiful I can copy.  (There are so many wonderfully creative people out there, why reinvent the wheel?)  Sometimes I find a card I want to CASE, but sometimes I need a little more inspiration.  In that case, I turn to a couple of sketch blogs, and see if there are any color or layout challenges that might get my juices flowing.  This typically will get me moving in the right direction, but I almost always come out with a card that is very different from the sketch...but I've got a card, and that was the goal!  What's your card creating process?
