Inky Paws Challenge #114 Winner!
We've chosen one RANDOM winner using to receive a $20 Store Credit to Newton's Nook Designs!

Happy Birthday by Tracie C. features Peony Blooms, Beautiful Wings,  and Frames & Flags by Newton's Nook Designs; #newtonsnook
Is it spring yet? Not quite, but Tracie C.'s card will add some flowery brightness for those snowbound or with the winter blues! Tracie uses the dies from the Frames & Flags die set to cut her panels--one with a blue-gingham like pattern. The other with a plaid design in pinks and greens. She overlays the plaid layer with a green panel which has leaves stamped on it. Her focal image are those beautiful pink flowers from the Peony Blooms stamp set with the sentiment coming from the Beautiful Wings stamp set. Adding pink ribbon with a bow and floral button are her final touches. Thank you, Tracie, for this breath of spring!

Congrats to Tracie C. Don't forget to send us an e-mail at

Becky's FAVE
Meow & Fur-ever by Paula features Newton's Sweetheart by Newton's Nook Designs; #newtonsnook
Love is definitely in the air with Paula's daring card. Pattern paper sets the scene for the beautifully colored feline couple from the Newton's Sweetheart stamp set. She anchors everything together by tucking a die cut heart behind the kitties. She adds a little red banner with the sentiment embossed in white for the finishing touch! How romantic!

Crystal's FAVE
'Twas the night before Christmas by Amy T. features Newton's Curious Christmas and Frames & Flags by Newton's Nook Designs; #newtonsnook
Amy T. creates a starry night just perfect for the curious kitten from the Newton's Curious Christmas stamp and die set to stay up late and watch for Santa Claws! She embosses the sentiment in white on a midnight blue layer. For some added sparkle, she uses the Frames & Flags scallop-edged die to cut a glittery silver frame matted on a navy blue card base. Her sprinkling of silver sequin stars and light blue ribbon are perfect embellishments!

Debbie's FAVE
Scootin' by to say hello by Mugdha features Newton Scoots By by Newton's Nook Designs; #newtonsnook
Mugdha is on a roll with her scooter-themed cards, and this one doesn't disappoint! This time her cruisin' kitty from the Newton Scoots By stamp and die set is off to a big city for another adventure! Mugdha's background of the city with the vellum panel overlay is a fabulous way to interpret the sketch. And the white outline of the clouds is afun touch! Zoom! Zoom!

Diane's FAVE
Warm and cozy by Priscilla features a digital freebie and Evergreens by Newton's Nook Designs; #newtonsnook
What is black and white with a splash of red? Priscilla's eye-catching card, of course! With the white snowflake background, Priscilla adds a black panel with white evergreens using the Evergreens stencil. She then downloads a free NND digital and adds those darling mittens. Don't you love that little splash of red on the hearts and how the card matches the hat!

Sue's FAVE
Feeling slothy, need coffee by Becca features Slothy Coffee by Newton's Nook Designs; #newtonsnook
Becca serves up a whole lot of java fun! Using the sloth from the Slothy Coffee stamp and die set, she adds coffee bean images over a dictionary page underneath a java cup embossed layer! If that's not enough fun, she has a fun polka dotted background! Wow!
