Newton's Nook Designs February Release!

It's that time of the month again friends & followers!  Newton's Nook Designs is release more sets - YAAY!  And trust me when I say that are adorable!

The sneak peeks begin with an adorable new set featured our recently named bear - Winston!  I decided to take the CAS approach for a change and used the balloon image in the set to make a simple yet colorful birthday card:
I found out the hard way that rub-on alphabet letters don't always stick to paper that has been colored with alcohol markers, so instead I used a Memento Tuxedo Black marker to ink up only one letter at a time to spell 'h-a-p-p-y' on the balloons (I had to get creative - the 'p' is actually the 'd' of 'birthday' stamped upside down).  This also was my first time coloring with Chromatix alcohol markers; I will do a review of them in the weeks that follow, so stop back by for that.  Here is what the full set looks like with adorable, newly-named Winston bear and all his accessories:

Now on to the fun part...
