Marianne pulls festive papers from the Meowy Christmas paper pad for her two cards.  She then pulls the kitty from the Newton's Curious Christmas stamp set in his tangle of lights as well as the kitty from the Newton's Birthday Bash stamp set to feature on each card. Adding a little Santa hat changes the birthday kitty into a Christmas one!  Both cards are absolutely darling!

Danni's FAVE
Happy Halloween by Kristi features Creepy Cameos, Cameo Frame, and Halloween Meows by Newton's Nook Designs; #inkypaws, #newtonsnook, #halloweencards, #cardmaking, #cardchallenge
Kristi wowed us with her monochromatic card.  She used the 
Halloween Meows paper pad and pulled three different designs in blacks and whites. Don't they look spooky together?  She then uses the retired  Cameo Frame die with a silver embossed sentiment from the retired Creepy Cameos stamp set.  The overall effect is spookily elegant!

Debbie's FAVE
Angy Hughes's card features Spooky Line and Candy Corn Newton by Newton's Nook Designs; #inkypaws, #newtonsnook, #catcards, #halloweencards, #cardchallenge, #cardmaking
Angy Hughes' repeated use of the Spooky Line stencil at an angle caught Deb's eye.  Such a creative background for her darling kitty in his candy corn costume.  This sweet image is from the newly released Candy Corn Newton stamp set. Such a fun Halloween card!

Amy's FAVE
Thanks a latte by Angy Hughes features Pumpkin Spice Latte and Falling Leaves by Newton's Nook Designs; #inkypaws, #newtonsnook, #cardmaking, #cardchallenge, #coffeecards, #coffeelovers
Angy Hughes is on a roll with her fabulous backgrounds!  Her water colored background in soft autumn colors and subtle leaves (Falling Leaves Stencil) caught Amy's eye.  Paired with the latte-lovin' lady from the Pumpkin Spice Latte stamp set, Angy creates a fabulous shaker autumn card!

Claire's FAVE
Thanks a latte by Laurie features Pumpkin Latte and Falling Leaves by Newton's Nook Designs; #inkypaws, #newtonsnook, #coffeecards, #coffeelovers, #autumncards, #cardmaking, #cardchallenge
Laurie uses the same exact products in Angy's card!  Laurie's card features the softest of pastel colors that are just gorgeous. She uses a dimensional paste with the 
Falling Leaves stencil, so her leaves have a bit of texture yet remain subtle. She colors her latte lovin' lady from the Pumpkin Latte stamp and coordinating die set in the same soft pastels.  Gorgeous!

Crystal's FAVE
Have a cozy day by Maria features A Cozy Day by Newton's Nook Designs; #inkypaws, #newtonsnook, cardmaking, #cardchallenge
Maria's use of the diagonal stripes in the sketch as curtains was so creative and clever. Enjoying her partially opened curtains is a lovely lady and her duo of cats from the A Cozy Day In stamp set.  Maria then personalizes the book by adding her own title!  So creative and clever!
