Autumn Birthdays

We are having an early taste of winter here today with freezing rain and snow.  I had to go out yesterday and buy boots when I heard the forecast as I gave mine away last year.  Anyway, I have two cards to share with you today.

I recently purchased a pack of Recollections kraft cardstock and used it as the base for the two cards.  I didn't think I would like using kraft cardstock, but I'm pleasantly surprised how much I like how it looks!  Paper, golden leaves and wooden tag are from Making Memories Autumn Splendor line, Martha Stewart doiley spritzed with English Ivy Glimmer Mist,  and gold pearls are Recollections.

This card also uses MM papers and leaf accented with gold Stickles, Martha Stewart doiley spritzed with Glimmer Mist, tag from Anabelle O'Malley stamped with sentiment from Papertrey Ink, and flower by Recollections.

Last, I'm sharing a photo of the little guy Jasper after his recent grooming appointment.  He got his hair cut, a bit short for the weather today!  Thanks for stopping by and leaving your sweet comments.


  1. Both cards are gorgeous, Pat! Little Jasper is so cute and clean!

  2. Gorgeous fall cards Patti and Jasper looks pretty proud of himself. lol

  3. Oooh, gorgeous cards, Patty! Look at you rocking the kraft cardstock! You know I LOVE that! SO love the little leaf tag and the doily on the first card. I just got a hand-me-down leaf stamp from my friend last night, and now I'm really inspired to go play with it!

  4. In my excitement I forgot to say how adorable little Jasper looks with his new haircut!
