Autumn Splendor Birthday

I must say it wasn't super sunny this morning when I took the dogs out, but it sure was nice to open the back door and be greeted by a bunch of beautiful morning glories!  

After taking a picture of what's right out my back door, I had to go check out the morning glories that grow up my apple tree.  A few years ago I started planting these flowers under my tree to see if they would grow up into it...well they did!  Now every year they self seed so I don't have to buy any plants.  This year I had so many growing I had to pull a lot out like they were a bunch of weeds!  Actually I took some of the larger plants and replanted them by my fence.  That's why I get the beautiful view every morning. :)  Thanks for letting me share a little bit of my garden with you...

Now on to today's card.  For starters, I did get this design from someone else and thought I had her bookmarked so I could acknowledge her.  Sorry, but I can't find it...and I have looked every where! :(  So...continuing on, this was for a stamp a stack from a couple of months ago, but I wanted to wait to post it until it was getting closer to fall...and it's coming faster than I'd like it to!  Anyway, I had fifteen people come to this stamp a stack so I needed two baskets and two cards so we wouldn't be making card all night!  One thing I pointed out with this card is that no two cards are alike, so don't worry if your card doesn't look exactly like mine.  Each card is unique. :)  

This is the first one...the sponging is nice and light...

...with words and a couple leaves on the inside.

Now the second card where the sponging is much darker.  I really liked the light one when I made it, but after I made the darker one I think I liked it a little better. ;)

Thanks for looking and have a great day!
