Life is Sweet! Two cards, three challenges!

(Scroll down one post for the Christian Paper Crafts Sneak Peak!)

Hey there Delightful friends!  Thanks for dropping by and visiting my blog!  It's a new week and I had a pretty restful weekend, which I'm so grateful for!  Nothing really pressing over and above the usual, which makes me very thankful.  So this gave me some unwinding and  relaxing time at my craft table so I  played with paper and my Copic markers and watched the S.F. Giants play (or rather listen to them since my eyes were focused on my coloring!)
Here are the results of my playing  (AND the Giants won!!)

TWO CARDS - THREE CHALLENGES are represented here Play Date Cafe #94 (color),
CAS-ual Friday #15 and Clean & Simple Stamping FTL#153 have joined forces this week (sketch).

This first card has many layers so I cannot say that it is a CAS, however I did use the FTL#153 Sketch for inspiration.  But my second card is the CAS card using the Play Date Color challenge.
