Color Throwdown and Mojo Sketch Challenge

Good afternoon PEEPS!
We are experiencing high winds again today, but NUTHIN' like last night (insert wide eyes here). My good friend, Melissa, and I had to work Bingo last night and when we left the bingo hall, we didn't realize it would be THE MOST dangerous ride home we've ever experienced. We had 100 km/hr winds, along with flurries, and visibility was NEGATIVE. Melissa was my "ditch guide" and told me when I was getting too close to the right-hand ditch and there were a couple times we had to actually STOP right in the middle of the highway cuz I didn't have any bearings at all and couldn't see anything, not even the hood of my van :( What normally takes us about 1/2 hour to get home, took me 1.5 hours! I was never so happy to see my house and the chilled bottle of wine that I had in my fridge!!! LOL...I finally fell asleep around 2 a.m. I think...

So....onto today! I got up around 10:15 a.m. and started some coffee, and had my breakfast. I then got right to work baking gingersnaps and homemade buns. My son and Melissa's son are quite happy today (Sam spent the night last night) that I have decided to have a hunker-down-and-bake day :o) I am done all the baking for today and decided to sit and power stamp some cards out. I have a big craft sale on Thursday and Friday next week, so I need to pump out some serious cards here in the next few days. I am using my Bella's today along with Stampin' Up! sayings etc. I decided to take a stab at the Color Throwdown this week, and like Melissa, they are not colors I would ever think of trying to put together, but ya know...after I did this card, I don't mind the colors at all. So, it does pay to try a challenge here and there! I hope you enjoy the next few posts I have for you - I'll be crafting for the rest of the day/night....take care and happy stamping!
