Inky Paws Challenge #30 - Spring Theme

This month's challenge is a Theme Challenge! 
create a project with a Spring Theme!

Are you ready to get your paws inky with us and play along to win a prize? The Challenge winner will receive a $10 store credit to our online store and a Inky Paws Challenge Top Pick Badge to add to your blog! If we get more than 15 participants, we will choose two winners so be sure to tell your friends to play along! 

You have TWO WEEKS to play along - Deadline to enter is Friday, April 8th, 2015 at Midnight CST. The winners will be announced on the NND blog on Monday, April 11th.

We usually pick our favorite entries for each challenge theme but this month we thought we'd switch things up a bit and pick TWO RANDOM WINNERS - so every entry has an equal chance to win. Just follow the guidelines below to qualify.

Are you ready to play along and get your paws inky?
  • Create a NEW project (card or other paper craft item).
  • Your project MUST use at least one Newton's Nook Designs stamped image (or free digital stamp - check out our Freebies page).
  • Post your project to your blog or to an online photo gallery such as FlickrPinterest, or splitcoaststampers (on splitcoast please use keywords newtonsnook and IPC30).
  • Link back to this challenge (if posting in an online gallery copy the link into the photo description). 
  • Submit your project to this challenge using the InLinkz widget below. You must submit a DIRECT link to your post page.
  • Have more than one great idea? You can enter more than once! Just link up each card separately. 
  • TIP: Please make sure your photo in focus  - We can't pick you as a winner if we can't see your card clearly because your photo is blurry! 

Here's some inspiration!
