Two Challenges In One

I just love the sketch challenges over at SCS! I made this on Wednesday and then thought I would make the same card with the decorative papers reversed. In person I like the top card but the way it photographed I like the bottom. Then todays challenge at SCS is limited supplies and the theme is chocolate. You can use chocolate color paper, embellishments or candy. Well both these cards just happened to have chocolate colored DP so it fits the requirements!

It's going to be a beautiful weekend and we have absolutely nothing planned except I'm making our Thanksgiving dinner Sunday. We will be spending Thanksgiving with extended family and we like to have our own Thanksgiving dinner with all of the foods we like that we won't get at someone else's house.
The fires here in Southern California are all put out, we were never in any danger but they were about 8 miles away and the smoke was pretty bad. I haven't driven into Orange County yet but my husband said it's pretty amazing to see with all of the black burned hills.

I love the colors you have on these also. I'm planning on our Thanksgiving dinner early also as we are going to be with others that day.

Mother Nature sure does let us know who is boss! So glad you didn't have the fire near you.
