I'm so fawned of you by Meghan K. features Deer Friend by Newton's Nook Designs; #inkypaws, #newtonsnook, #cardmaking
Meghan K. was not only our lucky random winner this week, but also Claire's FAVE!  Again, her simple color scheme, interesting designs on the pattern paper make a sweet setting for the fawns from the Deer Friend stamp and coordinating die set!  Congrats, Meghan!

Debbie's FAVE
Life's better in flip-flops by Karen features Flip-Flop Life by Newton's Nook Designs; #inkypaws, #newtonsnook, #cardmaking, #summercards
Karen Guettler's use of rainbow colors on the black background really makes her card stand out!  She uses the  Flip-Flop Life to create her own rainbow pattern paper. Then she then white embosses the flip-flops on black and uses the coordinating die set.  On a black circle, she again white embosses the sentiment.  The white stitching on the black frames adds a nice touch!  

Diane's FAVE
Father's Day blessings by Christine features Newton's Birthday Balloons by Newton's Nook Designs; #inkypaws, #newtonsnook, #cardmaking, #fathersdaycards
Christine Miller uses the Newton's Birthday Balloon stamp and coordinating die set to create a darling Father's Day card.  She uses papers with stars, stripes and polka dots that add a fun, festive touch to her card.  Don't you love how she colored her sweet kitty!  Delightfully done!

Sue's FAVE
You're jaw-some by Karen features Shark Bites and Shark Frenzy by Newton's Nook Designs; #inkypaws, #newtonsnook, #cardmaking, #sharkcards
Karen Guettler's combination of Shark Bites stamp and coordinating die set and the Shark Frenzy stamp set makes for a truly JAW-some card!  She sets the scene using the  Shark Frenzy stamp set. Then she uses the little fish images from the  Shark Bites stamp set to create an underwater scene on which she stamps the sentiment and cuts into a circle. She adds the breaching shark on her other watery circle.  JAW-some job, Karen!

Amy's FAVE
Life's a picnic by Priscilla features Newton's Picnic and Basketweave by Newton's Nook Designs; #inkypaws, #newtonsnook, #summercards, #catcards, #cardmaking
Summer's here, and it's time for a picnic! Priscilla Joseph 's card will have you packing your basket with goodies.  She begins by creating her background using the Basketweave stencil. She adds a red & white plaid "blanket" before coloring the goodies from the Newton's Picnic stamp set.  Don't you love how Newton is digging in? Wonderfully done, Priscilla!
