Deck the Hall with Inky Paws Blog Hop

This is my third post today. 
If you are looking for the Fresh Squeezed Stamps Happy Walrus, it's here.
If you are looking for the My Favorite Things Release Countdown, it's here.

December is already busy.  I am amazed every year at how much there is to do and how much I should have done in advance!!  Making cards becomes even more important to me in December as a break from the insanity.  And it always helps when I get to play with stamps that make me smile.  Newton's Nook Designs has the perfect stamps for brightening my day (and I'm sure it will make the recipient smile too!), so I happily agreed to be part of the Deck the Halls with Inky Paws Blog Hop.


I am owned by two cats and their antics amuse and annoy me daily.  So I am a huge fan of the cats in Holiday Mischief.  This one is pretty true to life...

Deck the Halls Tag

Newton's Nook Designs does have great cat stamps, after all, "Newton" from "Newton's Nook" is a cat!  But they aren't just about the cats so I wanted to be sure to show you a holiday tag using an entirely different set.  These stamps are from Holiday Wishes which includes a variety of holiday lines and words.

Joy Tag

If you started with me - be sure to head back to the beginning at Newton's Nook Designs.

If you have been doing the hop - you are at the end {sad face - no more Inky Paw today}.  I hope that you have played along with the contest and have been leaving comments, because you can tell there are some great stamp sets that you are going to want to win!

Oh my gosh, Kim - what ADORABLE tags! The kitty in white with pink ears is precious, and the two-colors-only ornaments are gorgeous! And the multi-ribbons is a great idea. And I love the final touch of the sequins!

Oh, look at that kitty!!!!
I thinks it's an adorable little kitten, such a cutiepie!
Love how he keeps his eyes shut, ha, ha, he knows he's misbehaving.
But hey, he's a cat so he'll get away with any mischief he does, right?
Your tags, twine, ribbon and colors are perfect for Christmas, I absolutely love that red/white/green twine, so perfect for Christmas!
And I just want to mention how much I appreciate the fact that you actually translate my blogposts so you know what I'm talking about!!
Thanks!!!
And yes, you did it again, you made me smile today!!!
Thanks for that too!
Bye and have a great weekend,

Marjolein

I don't want to say "Cute tags" even though they are because that's what everyone else said. ;) I want to say that I love the different ribbons, twine and rick rack that you tied them with.
