Inky Paws Challenge Top Picks - Newton's Nook Designs
Kitties in Paris with Graffiti | Card by Sally Jackson | Newton Dreams of Paris Stamps by Newton's Nook Designs
This adorable card by Sally is our first top pick! She caught our eye with this image of the two kitties in love from our Newton Dreams of Paris stamp set! The background is super cool too with the brick and graffiti! Make sure you check out her blog Abbey's Attic - she has a really cute story about these two kitties on it too! 

Love you Kitty card with Hearts | Card by Anja | Stamps by Newton's Nook Designs
This card by Anja is our other top pick! We really love how she used the kitty from Newton's Birthday Bash and changed his balloon into a heart!  Plus the layering of all the hearts behind him is so beautiful! You can see more at her blog, Scrappietoo

Newton's Nook Designs Inky Paws Challenge - Favorite

You're cool Mom Card with Penguin | Card by Heidi | Stamps by Newton's Nook Designs
We really loved this adorable card by Heidi! We loved how she mixed the "love you" & "mom" from our Love Grows stamp set with the sweet little penguin pair from the Wild Child stamp set! What a fun pairing! We also loved the watercolor in the heart - so pretty! 
The next two favorites are both awesome clean and simple cards and use our raccoon image - We couldn't decide which we liked better since they were so lovely - so we picked both!Clean and Simple Raccoon Love Card by Karen Mead | Stamps by Newton's Nook Designs
We really loved this Clean and Simple card by Karen using the cute raccoon from the Sweetheart Tails stamp set. The clean style is so striking - and the subtle hearts on the grey stripe are a fun detail! 

Clean and Simple Raccoon Love Card by Lynn | Stamps by Newton's Nook Designs
Here's another Clean and Simple card by Lynn - also using the raccoon from the Sweetheart Tails stamp set.  We loved the contrast of the bright red against the white - and the cute little hearts in the background are so fun! 

Thanks so much!
