A Niece Has A Birthday to Celebrate!

One of my sister's girls has an October birthday.  In fact, it is on the same day as my son, Mark's, birthday and my husband's youngest sister.  I also have yet to make a card for my great nephew who celebrates on the exact same day.  What a busy day!  I guess in some ways it's good that we don't all live close enough to visit or it could be a problem!

I'm into making fall cards...just love the color combinations of autumn!  Our dinner-plate-sized Maple leaves are beginning to fall, but as it has been a lovely and warmer fall than usual, the leaves were slower to get ready to abandon their high perches. Though by Halloween, we should be wading in them knee deep!

With falling leaves in mind, I thought I'd make my niece a colorful leaf birthday card in the shape of our Maple leaves to remind her of her brief time living in Washington.    My next step was to design an interior that coordinated with the card front, and then compose a verse that fit the occasion.  Shauna's card would another that would arrive a bit late due to all my fast-paced family activities during the past three weeks.  I hope she enjoys her fall leaves card as much as I enjoyed putting it together!
