Autumn Birthdays

It has been pretty chilly here in Northern California the past few days. I have been sick for almost a week now caused by change of weather. Nothing serious, just sore throat, colds and cough. A couple of weeks ago, it still felt like summer. Oh well, I have been glued to the TV watching previous episodes of the Parenthood. I have not been this hooked on a TV series since Friends. I swear I almost feel like I am a part of the Braverman family.

I thought I would take a break from the holiday cards/projects and make birthday cards for a couple of friends who are celebrating their special days this month. I decided to use autumn colors. I hope they didn't turn out too dark.

I love everything about fall. Fall takes me back to the very first time we came to United States. Each and every time fall comes around I visit that time in my life down south when I first saw leaves change colors and my first experience of Halloween and Thanksgiving. It has been over two decades since my very first autumn, but I still fall in-love with it every year.
