Newton's Holiday Mischief

Hi everyone! This is my second post of the day. If you're looking for my Paper Smooches SPARKS post, please click HERE.


This week is the Newton's Nook Designs' Holiday Release! There are some *cute* stamps being released, and I'll be sharing a set each day. The stamps will be for sale in the store on Friday (10/18).

Today, we're sharing the Newton's Holiday Mischief set. Here's the card I created:



We only have one cat now, but for a few years, we had two. Marma was the older, ornery cat that had once been an indoor/outdoor cat before she adopted my husband (i.e., she was a toughie). Years later, we adopted Bullwinkle, who was pretty young and playful. As you can imagine, Marma was not very happy about a younger cat and spent a lot of time hissing at her. Every once in a while, though, they would be sleeping next to each other. :) I was thinking of them when I used the cats and sentiment for the card.

I stamped the Newton kitty twice, colored, and fussy cut them. For the sentiment, I used a sentiment from another set I'll be sharing this week. Here's a close-up:
