Let's Party....

I'm so lucky that I got a quick chance to make some cards while on my vacation.  We have a couple of family events (birthdays, etc.) for which I needed a few cards.  I thought that I was SUNK until I found out that I would get a few days to "play" with my best friend in her craft room (and all that goes with spending a few days with your best friend of almost 50 years).  I'm SO EXCITED that ice cream at Nelson's is on our agenda for tonight.  That's always a summer favorite!
I made this second card VERY late last night.  I couldn't sleep, so I decided to keep creating late into the night; and I came up with this card for a few challenges I found.  One is a sketch, and the others I was able to work in with some creativity.  Again, you've just GOT to love October Afternoon.  It makes card-making SO easy and fun.  How bright and cheerful is this simple card?

I'm entering it in a few challenges:
