Girls just wanna have fun & Give Thanks

It feels good to be back!!!  Missing MOJO is no longer a dilemma.  I was able to finish 2 cards this afternoon and evening....all while tending to our Sadie girl (our Yorkie) who went into labor and has given birth to a baby boy.  He looks just like Pablo (our Yorkiepoo).

The first card I finished was pulled together with the help of the following challenges:

  2. Penny's Paper Craft - #61 Photo inspiration (beautiful photo by the way!!!)
  3. The Paper Shelter - #30 Embossing
