Debbie's FAVE
It's a hot chocolate kind of day by KT Fit Kitty features Ginger Snap, Mugs, and Cup of Cocoa by Newton's Nook Designs; #inkypaws, #newtonsnook, #coffeeloverscards, #cardmaking, #hotchocolatecards, #cardmaking
KT Fit Kitty's hot chocolate card is filled with cuteness!  She uses the Mugs stencil to create her background. She adds a tan vellum layer and adds a pretty white doily.  Combining the gingerbread man (Ginger Snap stamp and die set-retired) and a mug of hot chocolate from the Cup of Cocoa stamp and die set makes for a scrumpdillyicious card!

Diane's FAVE
Bearing tidings of holiday cheer by Lynn H. features Winston's Home for Christmas by Newton's Nook Designs; #inkypaws, #newtonsnook, #bearcards, #cardmaking, #holidaycards, #christmascards
Lynn H. is back as Diane's favorite! Making the sketch with a pocket for a tag was a fabulous idea!  She features Winston (Winston's Home for Christmas retired stamp set) in his dashing red & white sweater.  The red & white papers are so festive as is the snowflake!  

Amy's FAVE
Meow by Billie A. features Newton's Antics and A Cat's Life by Newton's Nook Designs;  #inkypaws, #newtonsnook, #catcards, #cardmaking
Billie A.'s card is filled with feline fun!  She uses papers from  A Cat's Life paper pad for her layers.  Then she adds her darling gray kitten from the Newton's Antics stamp and die set.  Her added toys around the box, especially the paper pieced mouse, are wonderful additions to her card!

Claire's FAVE
Winter by Papierelle features Moose Mountain by Newton's Nook Designs; #inkypaws, #newtonsnook, #wintercards, #cardmaking, #moosecards
Papierelle's super CAS card uses the sketch in the most creative way!  Using the snowboarding moose from the Moose Mountain stamp set, she has him enjoying some slopes using the angles of the sketch!  Seriously creative!
