Sketch and Colour Challenge Cards

Good Afternoon Everyone!
I suppose I should be getting stuff out of the closet and washed and start packing for holidays but I just can't get motivated yet. The weather is crummy here again today. It LOOKS nice out, blue skies, sun is shining....BUT it's wicked cold and windy....lol I can't think about shorts and sandals just yet.
So I decided to work on a few cards. The first couple are for todays Sketch Challenge on SCS. The last one is yesterday Colour Challenge(Ballet Blue, Apricot Appeal and Real Red). I struggled BIG time with those colours. I don't ever pull out Ballet Blue, rarely use Apricot and just recently started to use Real Red. I suppose that is why they call it a challenge...haha!

Love your sketch challenge cards! And, I'm impressed with your color challenge card--I didn't even bother to try it (I use Real Red a lot, Ballet Blue some, but rarely use Apricot Appeal--just couldn't see those going together!).

I hate packing too !!! I always pack at the absolute last minute and unpack the second I get the door ! My kids always laugh that the van isn't fully unpacked yet and I've got the washing machine going :)
Great cards too !!! I love the layout for your Time Well Spent card...way to go :)

Oh my goodness! I love all three cards! I love that you made Time well spent look great. I haven't even dared to try that. Love your cute MFT card and love how you added things into the hands of the kissing couple.
Hugs and smiles
