Amy's FAVE
Oh sheep by Kimberly features Baa by Newton's Nook Designs; #newtonsnook, #inkypaws, #cardmaking, #coffeecards
Kimberly Curphey adds mixed media elements for this fabulously fun card!  Using one of the lamb images from the Baa stamp and coordinating die set, she shades her in dark grays.  The pretty lavender clouds make for a great backdrop. She adds two banners for the two sentiments from the same stamp set.  Just darling!

Claire's FAVE
I need some coffee right meow! by Meghan features Newton Loves Coffee by Newton's Nook Designs; #inkypaws, #newtonsnook, #coffeecards, #cardmaking, #catcards
Meghan showcases one of the adorable caffeinated kittens from the Newton Loves Coffee stamp and coordinating die set. Her stamped background of coffee beans and black and white splatters make for a perfect backdrop.  The yellow and blue pattern papers add a nice homey feel.  Wonderfully done, Meghan!

Debbie's FAVE
I need coffee right meow by Bunny features Newton Loves Coffee by Newton's Nook Designs; #newtonsnook, #inkypaws, #catcard, #coffeecard, #cardmaking
Bunny's orange and pink color scheme make for a bright, cheerful card!  She, too, uses one of the caffeinated kitties from the very popular Newton Loves Coffee  stamp set.  Bunny use of floral and plaid papers give her card such a wonder, spring feel!  Another fabulous coffee-themed card!

Diane's FAVE
Big Wishes by Donna features Holding Happiness by Newton's Nook Designs; #newtonsnook, #inkypaws, #birthdaycards, #cardmaking
Donna's birthday card is filled with beautiful colors and wonderful patterns.  On her light sage card base, she layers with pattern papers.  She uses the gift-laden lady from the Holding Happiness stamp and coordinating die set.  She stamps the Big Wishes sentiment on a distressed circle.  Her use of the black polka dotted banner ties everything together so nicely!

Sue's FAVE
Terra's card showcases Dainty Daisies by Newton's Nook Designs; #newtonsnook, #inkypaws, #cardmaking, #springcard
Terra's card showcases the daisies from the Dainty Daisies stamp and coordinating die set delightfully!  On a card base of goldenrod gingham, she adds a white frame with the daisies repeatedly stamped.  The beauty is how she left them uncolored.  She then adds a couple of banners and a gray circle.  On top of the circle is a sprig of colored daisies.  A wonderfully designed card!
