I'd like to introduce you to my friend Kathy Racoosin. Kathy is known for her mad coloring skills, and she's currently hosting an awesome challenge for crafty types like you. It's called the 30 Day Coloring Challenge


The premise is simple: Color something daily using any medium even if it's just for five minutes. That's it! If you check out #thedailymarker30day on Instagram, you'll be able to see inspiring posts from people all over the world following along.


We thought it would be fun to get some cute My Favorite Things product in Kathy's hands to see what sort of magic she could do, and she did not disappoint! Take a look at the cute card that she created below inspired by our Sketch 267!

  6. She makes it look so easy! I'm still having a problem getting my stamping right! But I have really enjoyed her challenges. It gives me an excuse to do something that totally relaxes me and gets my head right! She's right: even if it's just a few minutes. I would love to see how she did the moon. She said it was easy. Hmm...maybe I'll go pull my grays and give it a go! Thanks for a chance to win.
