Have yourself a sandy little Christmas by Becky features Sun Soaked Christmas by Newton's Nook Designs; #newtonsnook
Becky Noelle's card will have you singing "Christmas in the Caribbean" with this darling Christmas card!  First she creates her round card base and does a lot of masking!  She adds a bit of ocean in the foreground and adds the sandman from the Sun Soaked Christmas stamp set. She adds the palm trees with the stockings hanging between them again using the  Sun Soaked Christmas stamp set. What a fun way to celebrate Christmas!

Happy birthday by Bobbi features Pumpkin Latte and Birthday Essentials by Newton's Nook Designs; #newtonsnook
Bobbi Lemanski creates the perfect pumpkin patch with her star-filled night sky !  She frames her sky with falling leaves from the Pumpkin Latte stamp set. She stamps a lot of pumpkins and hand draws in the grass around them. She adds her pumpkin-laden girl from the Pumpkin Latte stamp and die set.  She adds a speech bubble using the Speech Bubbles die set and stamps the pumpkin spice sentiment. To finish, she adds the birthday sentiment from the Birthday Essentials stamp set. Spectacular!

'Tis the season by Debbie features Caroling Newton and Snow Globe Scenes by Newton's Nook Designs; #newtonsnook
Debbie Owens keeps it very CAS with this sweet one-layer card. She stamps her background scene using elements from the Snow Globe Scenes stamp set. She then adds the little mouse from the Caroling Newton stamp set. She finishes by distressing light blue for her sky and adding snow to the ground and trees using Nuvo Crystal Drops.

Diane's card features Newton's Thanksgiving, Newton's Antics, and Speech Bubbles by Newton's Nook Designs; #newtonsnook
We all know cats sleep away most of their lives, but have you ever wondered what they dream about? Well, Diane Morales shows us with her darling card with a Thanksgiving twist. She begins with her card base and pattern paper in colors of fall. She adds the kitty from Newton's Antics stamp set and colors the box in green for a pop of color to coordinate with the veggies on the plate. Using the Speech Bubbles die set, she adds two bubbles and places food images from the Newton's Thanksgiving stamp set. Now we know, cats dream of turkey and pie!

Happy Halloween by Sue features Newton's Boo-tiful Night and Halloween Trio by Newton's Nook Designs; #newtonsnook
Sue T. creates this Halloween card in grays, creams, and teals, and it is just beautiful!  She repeatedly stamps the Happy Halloween sentiment from the Halloween Trio stamp set in dark gray. She lightly distresses over the words in a lighter gray to give her card a shadowy effect. Using the Newton's Boo-tiful Night stamp and die set, she selects the kitty in a pumpkin patch image. She colors the pumpkins in creams and teals, and her little kitty in gray. She pops her image using dimensional tape.  She scatters some enamel dots to finish her card! Lovely!
