Colour Q and Mojo Monday Birthday

The weekend is here!  Are you as excited as I am?!  We will be attending my husband's work picnic tomorrow - if the weather cooperates.  It's not looking good at this point but we can pray that the weather changes!

So I was running out of days to complete challenges this week so needed to combine two!  We won't even go down the road discussing how long this card took me to make.  It started off as one card then turned into another and another and this is how it ended.  I think tomorrow I'll clean up my craft room and hopefully that will help the creative process run a little more smoothly!!!  It does look like a bomb went off in it.  Even my 6 year old commented on how disastrous it was!  I think it shocks my kids since the rest of the house is never allowed to be that messy!!!

Okay so I combined the Colour Q challenge with the Mojo Monday challenge.  The Mojo Monday sketch was pretty straight was the colour challenge that, well, challenged me!  Still not sure how I feel but I wanted to try out a bunch of the new treasures that arrived from Stampin' Up! the other day!  I do love the new Blue Ribbon Stamp set!  It's fun but I was a little disappointed that the 2 3/8" scallop circle punch didn't fit or punch the medal out the way it showed in the catalogue.  I ended up having to cut it out a bit since the punch seemed to punch it out funny.  Did anyone else have this problem?
