Plus, you can save 10% off on any stamps currently in the Christmas category (and their coordinating dies) in their shop! The new NND christmas stamps will be released later this month too, so stay tuned for more holiday fun! 

I decided to showcase Newton's Holiday Mischief:

To make a card for our neighbors, who owns a pretty grey kitty:

Kitty Front Door card by Crafty Math Chick | Newton's Holiday Mischief Stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs

I know you may have seen this card before, but I am still recovering from pretty extensive back surgery so I was only able to share a former of my favorite creations for you.  I  created the door by dry embossing some pieces of kraft cardstock with a woodgrain pattern and then sponging some Crumb Cake ink around the edges to add some additional depth & texture and added a big brad as the doorknob.  Cutting Newton (here Newton is dressed as 'Nigel' kitty, who is grey) out was a bit tricky, but once that was accomplished I hung his wreath from the door using a smaller brad and thought since his tail was curling that would be a cut way to attach the sentiment dangling by some sparkly twine as a sign with the sentiment stamped & punched out with a word window punch.  I hope they will like it!  They don't know I stamp.  A lot of folks find out this about me at Christmas, LOL!  

Hope I have inspired you to get started on (or keep working on) your holiday cards for this holiday season!  Enjoy!
