Newton's Nook Designs May Release ~ Day 1


Welcome to the first day of Newton's Nook Designs' May Release!  Today we are debuting a set perfect for get well soon cards, scrapbooking the recovery of your furry family members or thank you cards for your favorite veterinarian, introducting 'Newton's Sick Day':


Aren't these images and sentiments purr-fect for all kinds of cards surely to perk up anyone 'feline' under the weather?!!  I could not wait to ink them up!  The first card I created is a masculine get well card (don't have nearly enough of those in my stash):

Sick Kitty with Kleenex card by Crafty Math Chick | Newton's Sick Day by Newton's Nook Designs

Can you see I used a tiny piece of real Kleenex for Newton's tissue box?  I paper pieced it to match the background patterned paper (which is from a retired Stampin' Up Patterns Pack I believe).  The kitty image is colored with Copic markers, I tried to make Newton's a greyish version of a Siamese fur pattern, not sure if such a cat exists in real life...

And don't you dog lovers think this set is just for the cat lovers either!  Just check out my second card:

Doxie vet thank you card by Crafty Math Chick | Newton's Sick Day & Dleightful Doxies by Newton's Nook Designs

I drew in a tummy bandage on one of the cute doxies from NND's Delightful Doxies set, colored him like my Ty baby, and fussy cut him out.  Then I created the big 'Thank You' sentiment using the tiny (and can I just say adorable?) image from the set (yeah, a whole lotta paper piecing here too, luckily those little baidaids are easy to cut out) and placed the doxie out in front (so the vet would know who was sending the card of course).  I am totally going to use these two sets to scrapbook Ty's surgeries too (yep, the poor little thing has had more than one!).
