Today I have some more inspiration for this Challenge! 

Zsofia Molnar delights with this festive holiday card. I love her glittery snowflakes using Snowfall stencil. Then the red and white striped paper works wonderfully with the Santa engineer from All Aboard for Christmas stamp set.

Meowy Christmas by Debbie features Santa Paws Newton and Holiday Foliage by Newton's Nook Designs; #newtonsnook
Debbie Owens uses no-line coloring for this festive card. She is using Santa Paws Newton stamp set. She creates her background using Holiday Foliage stencil.

Naughty or nice by Emily features Newton's Costume Party and Santa Paws Newton by Newton's Nook Designs; #newtonsnook
Emily Lauritzen does some combining of stamp sets to get exactly what she wants. She takes the head of the chimney kitty in Santa Paws Newton stamp set and adds it to the body from Newton's Costume Party stamp set. What a fabulous way to stretch your stamps!

There's snow-one else like you by Andrea features Frozen Fellowship by Newton's Nook Designs; #newtonsnook
I love how Andrea Shell uses dies to create the inner frame of snowmen. Then how she only colors the inner images! Such a fun way to use the new Frozen Fellowship stamp set!

Naughty or nice by Diane features Santa Paws Newton by Newton's Nook Designs; #newtonsnook
Diane Morales combines these fun plaid papers to create a fabulous holiday card. Those little mice from Santa Paws Newton stamp set are the purrfect helpers for this handsome Santa!
