Inky Paws Challenge #61 Reminder

Welcome to this week's new Inky Paws Challenge!
This week we are challenging you with this fabulous sketch!

One lucky and randomly chosen participant will win a $20 gift certificate to Newton's Nook Designs store!  You have until Friday, December 15, 2017 to link up your NND creation!

Here's my card to inspire you.


My card uses the NND Holiday Foliage stencil for the background. Then I attempted to use the no-line coloring technique for my Newton. I then die two tags--one from vellum and one from cardstock to add a bit of dimension to my card. Thanks so much for stopping by!  I hope to see how you interpret this fun sketch using your NND products!

Hope you will join us at Inky Paws Challenge!

Inky Paws Challenge #58


It's time for a new Inky Paws Challenge. This biweekly challenge features a super fun sketch!
http://www.inkypawschallenge.com/2017/10/inky-paws-challenge-58.html
For my card, I used this darling cheerleader from Touchdown Tails. My oldest granddaughter just finished her season as a cheerleader for a little league football team.  She had so much fun cheering that I wanted to celebrate her success!  Her team colors were blue and silver. I created a little shaker filled with stars and added glitter silver paper to add more sparkle!  I can't wait to send this to her!  Thanks for visiting my blog. Can't wait to see what you create with your Newton's Nook Designs with this fun IPC sketch!
