Inky Paws Challenge #37 | Plaid Christmas card with Cat by Becky Noelle | Newton's Christmas Cuddles Stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook
Our first Top Pick is by Becky Noelle! It's so cool how she created her own plaid by using masking tape and inks! What a creative idea! Then she added in the kitty and gifts from our  Newton's Christmas Cuddles stamp set. 

Inky Paws Challenge #37 | Plaid Christmas card with Dachshund by Jen W | Holiday Hounds Stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook
Our second Top Pick is this awesome plaid card by Jen Wills! If you look closely you can see that even the dog is plaid! Wow! So subtle and so pretty! She used the dachshund and sentiment from the Holiday Hounds stamp set

Newton's Nook Designs Inky Paws Challenge - Favorite

Inky Paws Challenge #37 | Plaid Cat and Coffee Card by KT Fit Kitty | Newton Loves Coffee  Stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook
This sweet coffee card by KT Fit Kitty is so adorable! We love how she paper pierced the coffee mug wrap to coordinate with the plaid on the background! She used our Newton Loves Coffee stamp set and the "meow" from our Newton Unwinds Die set.  

Inky Paws Challenge #37 | Plaid Floral card by Karen Baker | Garden Stamp sets by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook
 Karen Baker created her own interpretation of plaid using the frame from our  Garden Starter stamp set. It's so cool how she overlapped the frame with different colors to create this plaid look! The added sunflower is from the Flower Garden stamp set and the banner is cut out with the Garden Window Die set
Inky Paws Challenge #37 | Plaid Fall card with Dachshund by Vicki | Holiday Hounds Stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook
One more favorite - this tag by Vicki is so gorgeous! We love how colored the pup onto kraft paper and added a plaid paper-pierced sweater! The subtle brown plaid behind him adds the perfect touch too!  She used our  the Holiday Hounds stamp set to create this lovely Fall tag!

Thanks so much!
