SEAson's Greetings!

Hello from Miami,
 land of the forever sunshine and bright blue oceans!

Today's card is one that I'm just tickled to have made ~
using the Newton's Nook stamps which are so whimsical and fun.
I first spied this stamp company while blurfing one day
and saw this absolutely charming card and tracked down where 
it came from - isn't it cute!  
I loved their sketch this week on their challenge blog,
and decided to give it a try!  Since we celebrate a rather Tropical Christmas here in South Florida, I thought this stamp set was just the CUTEST!
For the challenge, I inked up  SEAson's Greetings stamp set,
 which I was blessed to win at their new
release blog hop - thank you, Newton's Nook!

Btw, if you haven't met Newton .. take a peek
What a sweet fur baby and a most wonderful assistance, I imagine :)

Here is my card, using my VERY favorite color combo ever!

And the sketch:

And you know me, I have to decorate the inside of my cards, too!
 I left this one blank for now as this Christmas card 
still has to travel :)

I'll enter this card into the Newton's Nook Challenge #4, sketch,
 the Loves Rubberstamps Challenge - Anything Goes and 
the RibbonCarousel Challenge - holiday w/ a spoiled item (I used twine!)

Thanks for stopping by and I "shell" "sea" you soon!
Hee hee!

Big hugs, Bigger Blessings!
