Sue's FAVE
Meow & fur-ever by Bhavya features Clouds and Newton's Sweetheart by Newton's Nook Designs; #newtonsnook
Bhavya's  take on the sketch by making two of the windows into balloons was wildly creative!  Behind those bright balloons you'll spy some fun pink clouds distressed while using the Clouds stencil. She adds the sweet felines from the Newton's Sweetheart stamp and die set and adds the white embossed sentiment on a black banner.  Adorable!

Becky's FAVE
Fright Night by Amy T. features Spooky Street, Spooky Skeletons, and Slimline Frames & Portholes by Newton's Nook Designs; #newtonsnook
Amy T. uses fluorescent colors for all her scary images from the Spooky Skeletons stamp and die set. She adds them to her spectacular background and shimmery black frame die cut from the Slimline Frames & Portholes die set.  Look in those portholes and see all the spooky images from the Spooky Street stamp set. A spook-tacular way to celebrate Halloween!

Crystal's FAVE
Happy birthday by Joyce M. features Porch Swing Friends and Newton's Book Club by Newton's Nook Designs; #newtonsnook
Joyce M. creatively uses the sketch to look through windows and see what her furry friends are up to!  For two of her windows, we can see the kitties from the Newton's Book Club stamp set inside enjoying some books. Don't you love those yellow gingham curtains?  Her center window has us looking outside to see the puppy and kitty from the Porch Swing Friends stamp set enjoying an afternoon nap!  So clever!

Debbie's FAVE
Oh snap! Get well by Betty Tollner features Ginger Snap, Newton's Sick Day, and Slimline Frames & Portholes by Newton's Nook Designs; #newtonsnook
Betty Tollner's use of two very different stamp sets makes for a fabulous get well card!  She uses the Slimline Frames & Portholes die set to set the stage with fun papers and colors. Her doctor from the Newton's Sick Day stamp and die set looks like she has her paws full with the injured kitten (same set) and gingerbread man from the Ginger Snap stamp set, often reserved for the winter holidays. The addition of the medical supplies adds fun touches to the get well message!

Diane's FAVE
Wish you were her by Rebecca W. features Newton's Summer Vacation and Slimline frames and Portholes by Newton's Nook Designs; #newtonsnook
Rebecca W. creates a spectacular background using the scallop-edged frame from the Slimline Frames & Portholes die set Don't you love how it goes from the sky, waterline, and sandy beach?  She selects the perfect images from the Newton's Summer Vacation stamp and die set for each natural element.  A superbly designed summer card!

Hope everybody is doing good, can't wait to see what you guys do for the next challenge.
