inky paws sketch challenge #4

yahoo! it's time for another inky paws challenge over at the newton's nook blog! the sketch this time is SO fun and absolutely fun to work with!!

for my card i had an idea to turn that circle into a snowglobe! hello! seems obvious, now doesn't it! ha ha!
then all i had to decide on was which newton's nook image to use! all of the new release images would have been super fun!! (i'm looking at you sea-son's greetings octopus, whale and boat!! ha ha!) but in the end, i settled on the warm and cuddly newton in a scarf (from newton's holiday mischief)! he just looked so bundled up and ready to be in a snowglobe! :) ha!

i paper pieced the cat image and then, using some circle dies and strip of paper, i created the snowglobe! easy peasy! 

i also decided to go a little abstract with the light green rectangle in the sketch and i used some maya road snowflakes that i colored white with my ink pad! :)
a simple bow with some twine and that's another really easy christmas card in the bag! it would actually be a fun card to reproduce with different images from newton's nook (seriously! can't you just see a cute puppy in there, too! eek! so cute!)

so anyway, that's it! now it's your turn to get your creative juices flowing and enter the inky paws challenge! you could win some newton's nook!!
