Debbie's FAVE
Santa paws by Amy T. features Pawprints, Canine Christmas, Frames & Flags, and Frames Squared by Newton's Nook Designs; #newtonsnook
Amy T.'s glittery paw prints on teal just stole my heart! She uses the Pawprints stencil to create those glittery prints. Using a combination of dies from the Frames Squared set and the Frames & Flags set, Amy creates her layers. Her focal point is that darling puppy from the Canine Christmas stamp set. She adds glitter to his hat and glossy accents to the puppy's nose and dog tag! 

Diane's FAVE
Merry Christmas by Angie features Beautiful Baubles by Newton's Nook Designs; #newtonsnook
Great colors make Angie's card a top pick!  Using a subtle plaid background of ivory and black, she adds a gingham pattern banner in red and black. She then stamps the ornaments from the Beautiful Baubles stamp set and shades them in the rich garnet and black colors. She stamps her holiday sentiment and adds a sprinkling of sequins for a bit of bling!  Gorgeous!

Sue's FAVE
Naughty or nice by KT Kitty features Newton's Candy Cane and Newton's Curious Christmas by Newton's Nook Designs; #newtonsnook
KT Kitty's mix of papers and textures makes this such a fun, festive holiday card!  For her spotlight element, she uses the kitty from the Newton's Candy Cane stamp and die set. She shades the kitty's scarf in light blue and the candy cane in red and white. She continues this color scheme throughout her card. The little red snowflakes make for a wonderful embellishment. She adds a mini tag on which she stamps the "Naughty or nice?" sentiment from the Newton's Curious Christmas stamp set and ties a red & white twine bow as a final touch. 

Becky's FAVE
Amanda's card features Framework and Festive Fawn by Newton's Nook Designs; #newtonsnook
Amanda's color scheme and use of plaid and pattern papers makes this such a sweet card.  Amanda die cuts her red plaid paper using the Framework die set. She continues to add her layers using a green plaid banner and a faux crossed-stitched paper. The sweet deer from the Festive Fawn stamp and die set is the perfect choice with it's green wreath and red ribbon.

Bobbi's FAVE
Wishing you a sweet holiday by Vicki Lynn features Newton's Candy Cane by Newton's Nook Designs; #newtonsnook
Vicki Lynn creates a peppermint candy masterpiece! She begins with a red and white striped paper.  She adds a scalloped-edge white frame and red rectangle center. She adds a horizontal layer of peppermint candies using the candy image from Newton's Candy Cane stamp and die set. She then adds the festive feline from the same set and colors him in light browns.  She adds the sentiment in a speech bubble as her final touch!
