bloghop, Thursdays with Sandiebella

it’s “The Daily Marker 30 Day Coloring Challenge” Blog Hop! AND A CHANCE TO WIN!!

Welcome to “The Daily Marker 30 Day Coloring Challenge” Blog Hop. Kathy Racoosin from The Daily Marker wants to share her love of coloring with you. Today Kathy has assembled a blog hop to give your creativity a jump start with some of her favorite stamp companies & Online Card Class co owners.

The premise of “The Daily Marker 30 Day Coloring Challenge” is to color something everyday even if it’s for five minutes. (However feel free to  jump in or out as time permits). Any coloring medium is welcomed. Click here to find out where to share what you are coloring and join the encouraging community of happy colorists PLUS answers to other questions you may have.

To start at the beginning of the hop go to The Daily Marker.  If you are coming from the blog of  Neat & Tangled you are in the right place. Kathy has the full list if you encounter a broken link.

Mixing stamps from other companies can be a win win. Kathy used one of our beautiful women, ALMOST ELLA,  from the Danielle Donaldson collection, and paired her with Concord & 9th butterfly stamp to make a fun and artistic card.  Watercoloring with Tombow watercolor markers is something Kathy always considers relaxing.


Adding a some detail with a white gel pen and paint splatters finishes the card off. Kathy decided to add a last minute bow tied around her neck…. since a choker is in fashion right now. 🙂 Check out the other ladies in this beautiful collection.

The next company on the hop is Paper Smooches

GIVEAWAYS: During  the hop you will find lots of giveaways along the way.  The full list of ALL  winners from the individual blogs will be announced on The Daily Marker Sunday March 12th.

  206. Gail Plaskiewicz says:

    Okay, this could only have been done by Kathy. My niece and I would so totally love this card. I love butterflies and my niece Bella loves anything pink. This is so creative and until I looked at it a few times, I realized that Almost Ella doesn’t have wings! How cool is that? I never thought of doing that with a stamp and I know only Kathy would think of doing this. I’ll have to watch the video to see how she did it. What an amazing card! I have been part of the coloring challenge for about 2 or 3 years. I love Kathy! Oh yeah and you too, Elanabella!
