Diane's FAVE
Hello by Vicki features Serene Stripes and My Type by Newton's Nook Designs; #newtonsnook
Vicki  creates a wonderfully balanced card with lots of geometric elements. She 
distresses her background in the challenge colors then uses the Serene Stripes stencil to create a wonderful layer that adds a lot of interest. She then adds two square frames and balances them with a blue circle die. She adds the typewriter using the My Type stamp and die set.  

Sue's FAVE
Hope your day is special by April features Dainty Daisies by Newton's Nook Designs; #newtonsnook
April Hutton wows with her vertical alcohol-inked stripes. She then colors the flowers from the Dainty Daisies stamp set in pale blues, which will have many of us longing for spring.  She balances her card with the sentiment again from the Dainty Daisies set. The strip of silver and glitter on the flowers' petals add a nice touch of sparkle. 

Becky's FAVE
Fa-la-la-la meow by Mary features Caroling Newton, Frames Squared, and Music by Newton's Nook Designs; #newtonsnook
Mary Reiner will have you singing along with this darling card with the music sheet score in the background created by the Music stencil. She adds a silvery scallop-edged frame using the Frames Squared die set. Mary then colors the singing trio from the Caroling Newton stamp and die set spectacularly using the challenge colors. Don't you just love how she added snowflakes on the kittens?

I'm a little prickly before my coffee by Meghan features Cuppa Cactus by Newton's Nook Designs; #newtonsnook
Bright bold colors and patterns make Meghan's card a hit!  With a lime green card base, Meghan adds a houndstooth pattern paper layer. She layers hexagonal frames in lime green and white on which she adds the two cacti from the Cuppa Cactus stamp and die set in their teal and blue striped cups. The sentiment probably rings true for many of us!  

Thinking of you by April features Peony Blooms by Newton's Nook Designs; #newtonsnook
April  really wowed us with the stunning alcohol ink triangular panel with it's stripe of silver. She adds lightly shaded peony flowers using the Peony Blooms stamp set.  She balances her design by stamping the sentiment in the lower bottom corner.  She adds some teal bling to finish!
