Welcome Bobbi Lemanski to our Inky Paws Challenge Inspiration Team!

A NEW member is  about to get Inky Paws!

First - a quick announcement - There will NOT be a new challenge next week since we are taking a break for one week over the holidays.

Then, starting with Challenge #88 on Dec. 31,  we are excited to be adding in a NEW inky paws challenge team member!  Here's a little bit about Bobbi, our newest member, below:

Bobbi Lemanski 
Hi! I’m Bobbi and I’m super excited to be part of the Challenge Team. My art studio is my happy place. I love color and creativity in all forms – cardmaking, canvas painting, interior design, etc. I live in Wisconsin with my husband, Kevin and our 16-year old twins, Tarek (TJ) and Olivia and our sweet dog, Stelly. I love using bold colors and creating high contrast designs. I get a kick out of finding clever ways to use sets in new ways and/or combos. I like creating and giving a 5” X 7” card. It has more of a presence and it gives me more room to design.  You can find me on Instagram as @soulshinejoy and Facebook as SoulShineJoy. My blog,  Soul Shine Joy includes many more cards featuring the fabulous Newton’s Nook Designs products.

Returning... four amazing Designers! 

We are also happy to announce that these fantastic designers will be continuing on the team! We know you've been enjoying their work so far and we can't wait to see what they create next! They will be sharing their lovely creations with you each Monday for Inky Paws Challenge Start and Reminder posts! We can't wait to see what they create in the new year!

Inky Paws Challenge Lead
Hi, my name is Debbie, aka Indy. I live in Washington with my hubby and two fur babies--Catapult and Velcro. I have several passions in life--cats, card making, clay ornaments, coffee, chocolate, and camping! I began card making back in 2010 and reached out to the Internet for inspiration and ideas! In 2013, I discovered Newton's Nook Designs and completely fell in love with Newton and his gang of whimsical friends, so I am thrilled to be part of the Inky Paws Challenge team!
Diane Morales

Hello Newton’s Nook fans I’m Diane Morales. My motto is “do what you love and share it with others”.

I live in West Columbia, Texas with my Husband and the tribe of three cats. 

Like most, I started in scrapbooking and moved into full time cardmaking about 2 years ago. I love cardmaking! I enjoy hand painting on my cards and usually created shaped cards or tags.

I first fell in love with Newton’s Nook when I was looking for a stamp set that best reflect how my cats acted.  “Newton’s Antics” was my first set, and it has been LOVE ever since. When I am not “procraftinating” you can find me with a cup of coffee, cooking, or gardening. You can find me on Instagram as  2. sistersproject   #dianeiscrafty

Sue T. 
Hi, I am Sue T. - yes that is what everyone calls me. I have been stamping since 1996. It truly became an obsession when a stamp store opened 5 minutes from my house. I love making cards. There isn’t a holiday that I don’t send them out. I have dabbled in just about every style over the years, but have found my niche with CAS cards.

I have worked in several stamp stores, had my own business teaching paper crafts and designed for challenge sites and stamp companies. I love to share my knowledge and creativity.

In the real world, I am a FT endoscopy nurse and very close to completing my Master’s in nursing education. I have a wonderful husband who is my best cheerleader and critic. My muse in my studio is my sweet kitty, Pinkie.

I love whimsical stamps, especially those cute little critter stamps. That’s why I am so excited to be part of the Inky Paws challenge for Newton’s Nook!!

Becky Noelle 
Hi! I'm Becky and I'm super excited to be here! I'm a stay-at-home mom to two little princesses and wife to a big kid. We live in Virginia and I sneak away upstairs to my studio during naptime, whenever the girls are watching a movie, and as soon as they go to bed. I'm a cardmaker, Project Lifer, and general practitioner of crafty pursuits. I can't seem to stop fussy cutting all of the things and I love to color. I'm a lover of Star Wars, Marvel, Disney, the Wizarding World, kindness, and sarcasm. You can find me at my blog or over on instagram as beckynoelle I can't wait to start sharing my projects with you!

Hope you are excited to see what everyone creates! We definitely are excited for a new crafty year in 2019!
