Cold Weather Brings Friends Together by Amy features Fireside Friends, Hardwood, Frames Squared, and Frames & Flags by Newton's Nook Designs; #newtonsnook, #cardmaking,
Amy Tollner will have you wanting to snuggle up with her sweet fur balls!  Her wood grain background created using the Hardwood stencil provides a cozy setting for her critters from the Fireside Friends stamp set. She uses the scallop-edged die from Frames Squared die for her red frame and the Frames & Flags die set for her sentiment.  To tie everything together, she adds a red bow!  Ready for a nap, yet?

Let's curl up and stay in by Becky features A Cozy Day In and Forest Scene Builder by Newton's Nook Designs; #newtonsnook, #cardmaking, #inkypaws

Oh the weather outside is frightful, but inside all is delightful! Becky Noelle creates a snowy shaker card window for her outdoor scene, complete with birch trees from the Forest Scene Builder die set. Her indoor setting uses the image from the A Cozy Day In  stamp set. A purr-fect way to spend a snowy day--reading a favorite book with fur balls curled up with you!

Winter is better together by Debbie features Frosty Friends, Frames Squared, Festive Forest die, Forest Scene Builder by Newton's Nook Designs; #newtonsnook, #cardmaking, #inkypaws
 Debbie Owens' card might remind you of the popular children's book, Snowmen at Night!  Her snow people from the Frosty Friends stamp set are enjoying a snowy night around a campfire.  Her snowy background includes some trees die cut using the Festive Forest and the Forest Scene Builder die sets. She uses the Frames Squared die set to create the scallop-edged frame. Oh what fun!

Snow one else like you by Diane features Tiny Trees, Land Borders, and Snowman Greetings by Newton's Nook Designs; #newtonsnook, #cardmaking, #wintercard, #snowmancard
Diane Morales creates a warm, cozy background using black ink and the Tiny Trees stencil
. The little splattering of white paint adds a nice winter touch. She adds the snowman from the Snowman Greetings stamp and die set on a bed of snow die cut from the Land Borders die set. Don't you love how Diane colors the scarf and sash on the hat in a checkered pattern for added texture?  Cute!

Stay Cozy by Sue T. features Sweater Weather and Snowfall Roundabout by Newton's Nook Designs; #newtonsnook, #cardmaking, #wintercards
Who doesn't like to snuggle up in a favorite sweater when the weather gets cold?  Sue T.'s critters from the Sweater Weather stamp set are doing just that!  Set on a kraft card base with a snowy backdrop using the Snowfall Roundabout stamp set, Sue creates a winter setting perfect for wearing one's favorite sweater!  Hope her sweet critters stay cozy!
