Happy St. Patrick's Day by Beverly features Newton's Pot of Gold by Newton's Nook Designs; #newtonsnook, #inkypaws, #stpatricksday, #cardmaking, #catcards
Beverly creates a St. Patrick's Day using the Inky Paws sketch that is sure to bring good luck to the recipient!  The shamrock in the heart coordinates wonderfully with Newton in his leprechaun hat!  This image is from the Newton's Pot of Gold stamp set. The stamped shamrocks on the green stripe add a fun touch!  A great way to stretch the sketch!

Diane's FAVE
I believe in unicorns by Anila features Believe in Unicorns by Newton's Nook Designs; #newtonsnook, #inkypaws, #magicalcards, #cardmaking, #unicorns
Anila creates a magical card with her heart of clouds and rainbow!  The background stripe of stars works wonderfully with the unicorn from the Believe in Unicorns stamp and die set. The added stars in her rainbow adds a nice sparkly touch to this darling card!

Sue's FAVE
New York is always a good idea by Joyce M. features Newton Dreams of New York City by Newton's Nook Designs; #newyork, #newtonsnook, #inkypaws, #cardmaking
Joyce M. is dreaming of New York City with her fabulous CAS card!.  She uses images from the Newton Dreams of New York stamp set. She die cuts a heart on the front of her card and stamps the Newton statue of Liberty on the inside.  She adds the skyscraper and taxi cab die cut using the coordinating die set. She uses the sentiment for her horizontal stripe.  Hopefully Joyce will be able to visit NYC soon!

Amy's FAVE
Purr-tea by Mary features Newton's Mug and Heart Frames by Newton's Nook Designs; #newtonsnook, #cardmaking, #catcards, #inkypaws, #teacards
Mary Reiner's combination of pink and black make for a remarkable card.  She uses the Heart Frames die set to create a black and a pink heart. She then paper pieces the mug from the Newton's Mug stamp and die set in pink and white striped paper.  Her speckled kitty peeking from the mug looks darling!  Her final touch is black and white gingham ribbon with a bit of pink twine! Purr-tea, indeed! 

Claire's FAVE
Happy Purr-thday by Deepti features Newton's Birthday Balloons by Newton's Nook Designs; #newtonsnook, #inkypaws, #cardmaking, #catcards, #birthdaycards
Deepti uses soft pastels for her fun birthday card! She has Newton from the Newton's Birthday Balloons stamp and die set floating past a white heart with a softly stamped paw print on it.  The background distressed images are full of kitty fun.  The added pop of black makes her card really stand out!
