Deck the Halls With Inky Paws Blog Hop

This is my second post of the day. Please click here or scroll down to see my post for CAS-ual Fridays Challenge #122. Thanks! =)



Hi and welcome to Newton's Nook Designs Deck the Halls With Inky Paws Blog Hop! Newton's Nook Designs has been sharing some awesome holiday projects on their blog with Deck the Halls With Inky Paws Week and we are ending it with a blog hop! If you arrived from the talented Danielle Lounds' Blog you are in the right place. If not, you can start the hop from Newton's Nook Designs Blog. Here is what I made for the hop.


I colored up this adorable kitty from Newton's Holiday Mischief set and used our black girl cat as my coloring model. She is the kind of cat that would totally steal Santa's milk! =)


The image is stamped on PTI's Stamper's Select White cardstock, colored with Copic markers then die cut using Paper Smooches' Quote Tag die.


The patterned paper is from 'Tis the Season 6x6 Paper Pad by Echo Park. I took the advantage of the pattern on the paper and added a layered die cut "merry" to finish the phrase.

That's all I have. It's time to send you to Danielle Pandeline's Blog. Don't forget to leave comments along the way for a chance to win a $10 coupon for Newton's Nook Designs online shop. Here is how you can win:

WOW! You did an AWESOME job coloring up that BLACK kitty - do you know how difficult it is for me to color anything black and still see the outline and give it highlights?!! AMAZING! I really like that 'Tis the Season stack too, I have to get my hands on one one of these days soon...
