Gail's card features Camping Tails and Pumpkin Latte by Newton's Nook Designs; #inkypaws, #newtonsnook, #cardmaking, #halloweencards

Treats for boo by Karen features Love & Chocolate by Newton's Nook Designs; #inkypaws, #newtonsnook, #cardmaking, #chocolatecards, #halloweencards
Karen Guettler Carlson creates a scrumptious Halloween card using a unique stamp set.  She colors the chocolate treats from the Love & Chocolate stamp set in orange and brown with purple paper liners.  She places her circular sentiment in the middle and has the chocolates arranged in a circle around it.  Love seeing how stamp sets can be stretched!  Fabulous!
