Nah...cute little Webkinz, though. Think it was this?

When Shannon saw some cards I made before, she "kinda" hinted that she would like some. I decided then that I would come up with a set for her birthday. I knew she liked pink and brown, so I went with those dee-lish colors....I mean, what girl doesn't love pink and brown?!?!?!?
**Please click on the pictures to enlarge.**
I made the box using my Scor-Pal. It was relatively easy.
Here are a couple of pictures of the cards. I made 6 cards/envies, using a different Cuttlebug embossing folder on the large brown mat to help give each on a different texture. To stamp the monogram, I used the StampRite Monogram stamper, Curly font.
Even though I don't have pictures, I also made a couple of other things for her. One of them was a giant clothespin from Michael's. I painted it with some chocolate distress paint and attached a large fancy Prima flower and some ribbon onto one side...I hope that she'll use it as a photo or memo holder. I also "fancied" up a Pentel RSVP to use with her note cards. I unscrewed the end and pulled out the ink reservoir, wrapped it with some matching paper that was cut it the length of the area between the black rubber gripper and the black on the end of the pen. I also used some of the ribbon that was used on the bag, plus some Basic Gray fibers, to tie onto the cap of the pen. I sooooo wish I had taken a picture!
***Please note that if you are interested in a set of cards similar to this, just email me at jowen214ATyahooDOTcom. I can play around with various papers, but a set like this would be $25 plus shipping. I take PAYPAL only.***
