A Color Challenge and a SKetch Challenge!

Hi! I hope your weekend was great! Mine was really busy - my DD's Girl Scout troop had a fundraiser at a craft fair, then I tried to get as much Christmas shopping finished as possible. My DD and DH's birthdays are one day apart, right before Christmas, too. So there is also birthday shopping to be done, and my DH is the hardest person to shop for! And the DD's birthday party to plan for.....boy, I am whining a lot today! Sorry!! I am actually very excited about this time of the year, it just doesn't leave a lot of time for stamping! So I stayed up way too late last night watching my Tivo'd Cardinals game and stamping!!! And I am always in a great mood when the Cardinals win!!

My card today combines two challenges - last weeks FFF color challenge at The Greeting Farm to used Kiwi Kiss, Baja Breeze, Chocolate Chip and White, and the sketch challenge from Viva la Verve at the Verve forum on Splitcoast!
