Thinking of you by Stacey features Cup of Cocoa by Newton's Nook Designs; #inkypaws, #newtonsnook, #plaid, #cardmaking, #cocoacards
Stacey's plaid has the loveliest of colors. She showcases one of the mugs of cocoa from the Cup of Cocoa stamp and die set by framing it with a pretty scallop-edged oval.  A CAS design that just wows!

Debbie's FAVE
Life is better with a friend like you by Helen F. features Porch Swing Friends by  Newton's Nook Designs; #inkypaws, #newtonsnook, #plaid, #cardmaking,
Helen F. shows off her amazing water coloring skills behind the snoozing critters from the Porch Swing Friends stamp set. She continues the plaid from the background by paper-piecing the blanket on the swing!  A brilliant idea!

Diane's FAVE
Sending birthday wishes by Mugdha features Sending Hugs by Newton's Nook Designs; #inkypaws, #newtonsnook, #plaid, #catcards, #cardmaking,
Mugdha takes a CAS approach to the challenge by adding two Polaroid frames for two of the cute critters from the Sending Hugs stamp and die set. The black adds a nice dramatic touch against her soft, lavender plaid. Lovely!

Sue's FAVE
Santa Paws is coming by Becky features Meowy Christmas, Frames & Flags, and Newton's Stocking by  Newton's Nook Designs; #inkypaws, #newtonsnook, #plaid, #catcards, #cardmaking, #christmascards,
Becky adds a pop of red behind her green stocking filled with her darling gray kitten from the Newton's Stocking stamp set. She adds the red & green plaid background from the Meowy Christmas paper pad which has been die cut using the scallop-edged frame from the Flags & Frames die set. It's starting to feel like Christmas!

Amy's FAVE
Relax. It's your day by Lori features Newton Unwinds by  Newton's Nook Designs; #inkypaws, #newtonsnook, #plaid, #catcards, #cardmaking,
Lori's colors really caught our eye!  The teal & chartreuse are stunning together especially with the gray plaid!  She uses the yarn-lovin' kitten from the 
Newton Unwinds stamp set. Don't you love how Lori colors her feline!  Wow!
