It's beginning to look a sloth like Christmas by Dandi93 features Slothy Christmas by Newton's Nook Designs; #inkypaws, #newtonsnook, #christmascards, #slothcards
Dandi93 creates a super clever CAS card by having her sloth from the Slothy Christmas stamp set hanging off the diagonal of the sketch!  She keeps the card simple and clean by stamping the sentiment at the bottom.  This is so cute, Irene!

Happy purrthday by Melissa features Cat Silhouettes and A Cat's Life by Newton's Nook Designs; #inkypaws, #newtonsnook, #catcards, #cardmaking
Melissa showcases the paper from the A Cat's Life paper pad speCATularly!  She adds twine at the corner to make her kitten (Cat Silhouettes die set) look like she is pulling it down!  I know!  So clever, Melissa!

Soaring by with by Debbie Frank features Summertime and Newton's Kite by Newton's Nook Designs; #inkypaws, #newtonsnook, #catcards, #cardmaking
#22 Debbie Frank is showcasing the Summertime paper pad. She pulls several designs that work purr-fectly with the kitten from the Newton's Kite stamp and die set.  The ability to mix and match papers with the different stamp sets makes for the most adorable cards!  Thanks, Debbie, for this bright, brilliant card!

Jane P. creates an amazing card using the vintage pick-up truck from the Farming Fun stamp and die set. She uses a patriotic color scheme that works amazingly with her blue truck.  Don't you love how she stamps the white trucks on blue paper?  Great work, Jane!
