Have you tried out one of the new fads lately - coloring in adult coloring books? I think this is a fun way to encourage my non-crafty friends (and my crafty ones) to be creative. I even set out a basket with coloring books and colored pencils on my family room table so that anyone who comes over can take out a book and color!
Another way to color is to take out some of your stamp sets that have images in them that you can color. I chose Flowering Fields to make a couple of cards with. It was a set that came out during Sale-a-bration time. It's a fun set in which to color in some flowers and then send out a note to encourage someone.
I added some pin pricks to the edge of my cards for some added interest. Then I added a 3-D butterfly. My card ideas came from Sue Vine and Laura Milligan.
Coloring can even reduce stress in your life. How about taking out some coloring for a few minutes today? It's surprising how relaxing it can be.
