Debbie's FAVE
Whatever floats your goat by Jennifer K. features Floaty Goat by Newton's Nook Designs; #inkypaws, #newtonsnook, #summercards, #cardmaking, #cardchallenges
Jennifer K. also used the challenge colors for a summery card. Her card features the goat from the retiring Floaty Goat stamp set enjoying a day relaxing at the pool.  The dashed-concentric circles resembled the rippling waves after splashing in a pool. So refreshing and fun!

Diane's FAVE
Enjoy the little moments by Avra features Garden Mice and Spring Garden Line by Newton's Nook Designs; #inkypaws, #newtonsnook, #springcards, #micecards, #cardchallenges, #cardmaking
Diane loved Avra's ink blending on this sweet spring card. Avra used the Spring Garden Line stencil to create a garden filled with golden daffodils just perfect for the little mouse and butterfly from the Garden Mice stamp and coordinating die set to play in.  

Amy's FAVE
Thinking of you by Helen F.
Amy loved how Helen F. used the Newton from the Newton's Donut stamp set to peek through the flora created using the Floral Fringe stamp set.  Helen also adds in a shaker element and an embossed panel to get her card texture and movement!  For her sentiment, she pulls one from the Lilac stamp set. Love it!

Claire's FAVE
Thanks a bunch by Dayna features Dainty Daisies by Newton's Nook Designs; #inkypaws, #newtonsnook, #springcards, #cardchallenges, #cardmaking, #shapedcards
 Claire loves the combination of plaid and flowers on Dayna A.'s darling card. Dayna creates a circle card base (inspired by our very own Diane) and partially covers it with blue and yellow plaid paper. She then adds the sprig of daisies from the Dainty Daisies stamp and coordinating die set. She sprinkles a few little yellow blooms for balance for a beautifully designed card!

Crystal's FAVE
I'm a little prickly before my coffee by Melanie H. features Cuppa Cactus by Newton's Nook Designs; #inkypaws, #newtonsnook, #coffeelovers, #coffeecards, #cardchallenges, #cardmaking
Melanie H.'s CAS design and punny sentiment made this fabulous card Crystal's favorite.  Melanie partially and subtly distresses the background in the challenge colors, then adds a bold cactus from the Cuppa Cactus stamp set in a blue and yellow mug.  The sentiment is definitely punny and may be very appropriate for some people in our lives! 😊

Thank you for playing!
