You ARF the best by Vanessa features Puppy Playtime by Newton's Nook Designs; #inkypaws, #newtonsnook, #dogcards, #cardmaking
Vanessa creates another darling puppy card. This one won our hearts with the bright colors and uniquely designed paper using the smaller elements from the Puppy Playtime stamp set.  She again adds two playful pups from the same set with fun stripes behind them.  And those cute bones!  Nicely done, Vanessa!

Claire's FAVE
Have a fin-tistic birthday by Priscilla by Mermaid Crossing and Tropical Fish by Newton's Nook Designs; #inkypaws, #newtonsnook, #cardmaking, #oceancards, #mermaid, #embossing
Priscilla awed us with how she combined the Tropical Fish (retiring) stencil set with a stripe stencil that makes it look like sunlight is filtering through the water!  Wow!  She then leaves her mermaid from the Mermaid Crossing (Retired) stamp and die set outlined in blue.  Very stunning, Priscilla!

Debbie's FAVE
You're Jaw-some by Sandi features Shark Bites by Newton's Nook Designs; #inkypaws, #newtonsnook, #sharkcards, #cardmaking
Sandi brings us a bold, graphic shark card featuring a scarily cute shark from the Shark Bites stamp and coordinating die set. We liked her use of blue stripes in the backdrop as well as those little sharks circling around.  Fabulously done, Sandi!

Diane's FAVE
Hope your day doesn't bite by Karen features Serene Stripes and Shark Bites by Newton's Nook Designs; #inkypaws, #cardmaking, #newtonsnook, #sharkcards
Karen also uses a scarily cute shark from the Shark Bites stamp and coordinating die set.  We love her creative use of the Serene Stripes stencil for her ocean and her bold yellow and blue colors!  Very eye-catching, Karen!

Sue's FAVE
Thanks for caring for me by A. Rose features Newton's Sick Day by Newton's Nook Designs; #inkypaws, #newtonsnook, #cardmaking, #catcards, #nursecards
A. Rose's sweet card to thank our healthcare professionals caught our eyes with its CAS style.  The wavy red and white striped circle behind the feline nurse is a creative way to add stripes, and Newton is looking stunning in his professional healthcare attire.  This fun image is from the Newton's Sick Day stamp set.  Great work, A. Rose!

Thank you for playing!
