Day 1

October signals another 30-Day Coloring Challenge at The Daily Marker.  Yes, for thirty days we are challenged to color something, even for 10 minutes, every day, for thirty days.  I haven't been doing a lot of stamping lately because I am reorganizing my stamps... maybe that is part of the reason the stress level seems to be rising. So I look at this coloring challenge as needed therapy.

The Cardologists got together Thursday to make a fall/Halloween card and we used one of my new stamps,  the Stacey Yacula Studio "Ginger" from Purple Onion.  For Day 1 of the coloring challenge, I used watercolors that I keep in my carry kit.  I colored two of the raccoons to fussy cut, so I could pop up the scarf and tail.  I ended up popping up the eyes to look like a mask and the pumpkin too.

The background paper is a gorgeous gold and black piece from Recollections Midnight Magic pad. I didn't think it needed an embellishment, but I may add a gold banner with a vertical sentiment before I send it.

I am going to enter the following challenges as well:
The Card Concept #40 Forest Friends  inspired by clean and layered, and the raccoon
Virginia's View #19 Color It where the color challenge is on
The Male Room Challenge #20 Autumn where they are also celebrating my favorite season

Hoping to be back soon with a card made from the snippet I colored yesterday! And as soon as the other Cardologists have finished their cards and send me pictures I hope to share them with you too as we all went in completely different directions with the stamp.

Have a wonderful day.


  1. Great colouring Dora. I agree it is very relaxing and doing a little every day is a good idea too, Cathy x

  2. I agree, colouring is very relaxing (but I do love having things organised around me too as I find it hard to concentrate in a mess, although while I'm creating I make some of the biggest messes ever lol.). Love your card and the dark background, makes it all very Halloweenly!

  3. What a great card! I Love the gold embossed stars and moon and that adorable little PO critter with his pumpkin!
