Amy's FAVE
Happy Halloween by Kristi H. showcases Boo Hoo, Newton's Perfect Pumpkin, Spooky Roundabout, and Halloween Meows by Newton's Nook Designs; #inkypaws, #newtonsnook, #halloweencards, #cardmaking, #cardchallengeKristi H.'s Halloween card caught Amy's eye.  With the spooky purple background peeking out her windows, Krist adds the little ghost and owl from the retired Boo Hoo stamp set.  For her third window, she adds the sweet, little Jack-o-lantern from the Newton's Perfect Pumpkin stamp set. Those playful polka dots are from the Halloween Meows paper pad, and they pull all the colors of Kristi's card.  For her sentiment, she pulls the Happy Halloween from the Spooky Roundabout stamp set.  Fabulously done!

Claire's FAVE
Happy Birthday with sprinkles on top by Vicki features Summer Scoops, Framework, Birthday Woofs, Furr-ever Friends, and Celebrations by Newton's Nook Designs; #inkypaws, #newtonsnook, #birthdaycards, #icecreamcards, #cardmaking, #cardchallenge
Vicki's use of the pastel papers from the Birthday Woofs paper pad with the two ice cream cones from the Summer Scoops stamp and coordinating die set was a fabulous idea. The pale yellow ice cream looks so delicious, especially with the added sprinkles using the Celebrations Embellishment Mix.  She also uses the heart from the Furr-ever Friends die set and the postage-edged die from the Framework die set to complete this scrumptious card!

Crystal's FAVE
You make life sweet by Becca features Cat Treats and A Cat's Life by Newton's Nook Designs; #inkypaws, #newtonsnook, #catcards, #cardchallenge, #cardmaking
Becca's combination of the lime green paw print paper and the pink polka dotted paper caught Crystal's eye.  Both papers are from the 
A Cat's Life paper pad.  Becca continues the fun by turning the card and adding circular elements with images from the Cat Treats stamp set. Don't you just love the little donut and ice cream cone?!  Wonderfully done!

Danni's FAVE
May your days be furry and bright by Jennifer K. features Puppy Present, Holiday Foilage, and Canine Christmas by Newton's Nook Designs; #inkypaws, #newtonsnook, #holidaycards, #puppycards, #cardmaking, #cardchallenge
Jennifer K. caught Danni's eye with her use of the lime green!  Jennifer finds the perfect color of green ink to create her background using the Holiday Foliage stencil. She continues the fun by adding striped paper from the Canine Christmas paper pad. Instead of stamped images, Jennifer carefully cuts out her canine images from the paper.  Such a clever idea!  She then pulls the sentiment from the Puppy Present stamp set.  Such a bright, festive card!

Debbie's FAVE
Here's to you by Danielle features Cocktail Mixer, Confetti Hot Foil Plate, Slimline Frames & Portholes, and Summertime by Newton's Nook Designs; #inkypaws, #newtonsnook, #summercards, #cardmaking, #cardchallenge, #cocktailcards
Danielle's use of purple and orange caught Deb's eye. Danielle pulls the orange seashore paper from the Summertime paper pad, and then uses the Confetti hot foil plate with purple foil.  For her stitched circles she uses the Slimline Frames & Portholes die set.  Love it!  She adds a trio of very scrumptious-looking drinks from the Cocktail Mixer stamp and coordinating die set.  The overall effect is "Let's celebrate!
