Emerging ColourQ

So great to have my mom visiting!!! Ethan was a pretty surprised little boy this morning when he woke up to breakfast with Gran :) It is really hard for us to be away from our families but having visits and vacations home are so much fun!!!

Here is my ColourQ and Mojo Monday card! I tested out a new technique also :)
