Merry Christmas by Helen F. features Newton's Christmas Kittens by Newton's Nook Designs; #newtonsnook, #christmas, #cardmaking
Helen F.'s card will fill your heart with feline happiness!  She stamps the Merry Christmas sentiment down her card alternating in chartreuse and red.  She uses stars as two of her sketch elements.  Don't you love the star die cut out with starry paper in the background?  Then she adds the feline family from the Newton's Christmas Kittens stamp set and colors them spectacularly!  So much fun!

Sue's FAVE
'Tis the season to be nutty by Tmschultz5 features Nutcrackers and Music by Newton's Nook Designs; #newtonsnook, #cardmaking, #christmas
Be prepared to burst out singing!  Tmschultz5's amazing card is filled with music!  She sets the stage with her music score background created using the Music stencil. She adds two circles with the heads of nutcrackers using the Nutcrackers stamp set. The third circle holds the punny sentiment.  She adds a bright red vertical strip with the Little Drummer Boy refrain (Nutcrackers die set) running down it. Are you singing yet?

Becky's FAVE
Warm winter wishes by Ildi features Sweater Weather and Holiday Foliage by Newton's Nook Designs; #newtonsnook, #winter, #cardmaking

Ildi uses tan, brown, and a pop of pink for her lovely card. She starts with a tan card bases and uses the Holiday Foliage stencil and brown ink to create her background. She repeatedly stamps the sentiment down the vertical strip for an ombre effect. She uses the darling fox in her little pink sweater from the 
Sweater Weather stamp set and cut using the coordinating die set.  She adds playful, pink clouds.  Fabulously done!

Crystal's FAVE
Oh, Snap! by Meghan K. features Ginger Snap by Newton's Nook Designs;#newtonsnook, #christmas, #cardmaking
Oh, snap!  Meghan K. makes this delightful gingerbread card--decorated with all kinds of red and white goodies--a sweet treat to behold!  She stamps two gingerbread people from the Ginger Snap stamp set and places them on the circular sketch elements.  Her vertical strip is a red and white gingham paper.  All is placed on a kraft paper with white circles.  The splattering of red pearls look like cinnamon dots.  Just too cute!

Debbie's FAVE
Happy holi-dogs by Sunshine HoneyBee features Christmas Puppies and Pawprint by Newton's Nook Designs; #newtonsnook, #cardmaking, #christmas
Sunshine HoneyBee uses a big pawprint and two holiday puppies to represent the sketch, and they look darling together. She uses the Pawprint Shaker die and two puppies from the Christmas Puppies stamp and die set.  The plaid strip behind them add a nice holiday touch!  Fabulous way to send Christmas greetings to your canine-lovin' friends!

Thank you for playing throughout 2020.  Seeing everyone's NND cards and projects each week brought smiles to all of us!  We love seeing your creativity and interpretation of each challenge!   We will be taking some time off to relax and enjoy the holidays, but we will be back on January 4, 2021 with a new fabulous theme challenge! 

We wish everyone good holiday tidings!
