While EVERYONE was out shopping on Black Friday, I stayed home and made some cards...LOL
I made this one for my SIL using Create a Critter cart. Stampn Up cardstock: Chocolate Chip, Close to Cocoa, Creamy Caramel, Certainly Celery and Sage Shadow. The card base was a biege (LSS).  Wording on the front is from Plantin Schoolbook cart. The Create a Critter wouldn't cut the tooth so I made my own...LOL

I made this card for my Niece using the same cart. Stampin Up cardstock: Close to Cocoa, Pink Passion, Pixie Pink, Summer Sun and Orchid Opulence. 5/8" Certainly Celery ribbon with a few purple rhinestones. The wording on the front is from Plantin Schoolbook.

AND FINALLY....My Moms Birthday card from the same cart. Stampin Up cardstock: Lovely Lilac, Lavendar Lace, Pale Plum and Ballet Blue.
