Crafting Forever & Being Creative Every Day

This year’s Annual Catalog includes a wonderful stamp set called Crafting Forever, which I used for today’s card. The sentiment on the card expresses something I believe we all should do: Do something creative every day. It doesn’t have to be anything big. Maybe it’s just a doodle, or a sculpture in your mashed potatoes. You don’t have to be an “artist.” But creating something every day helps keeps our minds alive. And it helps keep us happy. 

 

Here’s what I made:
