Newton's Nook Designs Inky Paws Challenge - Favorite

Kitty Christmas Card by Zsofi | Ornamental Newton stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook
This card by Zsofi at Safsafdesign is so lovely! The red and teal colored Christmas ornament from the Ornamental Newton set is so pretty! We also loved the polka dot paper she used that has green, red and teal polka dots - the perfect colors to match the challenge! 

IPC 38 Favorite | Kitty Christmas Card by Kathy Schweinfurth | Newton Loves Coffee stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook
This card by Kathy really caught our eyes! The way she gave the kitty from the Newton Loves Coffee stamp set a fun red and green mug and a santa hat is so cute! The way she added Happy Holidays inside an ornament shape is super fun and she also found paper in the perfect colors to match this challenge!

IPC 38 Favorite | Shark Christmas Card by Diane Morales | Shark Bites stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook
This card by Diane Morales made us smile! We love how she used the shark from our Shark Bites stamp set and gave him a scarf to make it into a holiday theme! She also used the fun wreath from the Happy Little Thoughts stamp set! Such a clever combo of stamps!
