Mojo 122 & SPCC 31

Well it's my day off after a horrifically busy weekend at work. It's amazing how babies comes in mega waves. Had many many moms to visit and a lot of heels to poke!! I'm just glad I got today off but booo I'm right back to the grind tomorrow and I know there's already another 2 moms to visit. Anyways Heidi at work just had a baby (9lbs 2oz!!!) and another lady at work wanted some thank you cards. So once again I'm trying to be efficient and not only make 2 cards at one time but combine 2 challenges! Here's my take on Mojo Monday #122 and SPCC #31. I'm very very excited that my friend Penny has started to participate in card challenges. I've been trying to get my fellow card making friends to join me in the blogging world and Penny finally did!! Hip hip hooray for Penny (and baby Annika for giving her time to do so!). Now don't look too closely at the ovals because I cut the watercolor paper oval out with my Coluzzle but the Apricot Appeal oval was eye-balled and trimmed by hand.
