Happy Fall!

Northern Illinois is having some amazing fall weather!  I know it won't last forever, but I'm grateful for every day that it's holidng on.  Each crisp, beautiful day helps to keep me a little more focused on finishing up my crafting for fall before I totally shift to the holiday season.  As for the day after Thanksgiving...well, that's a whole other story!
 Today I have two cards that showcase my favorite crafting combination - PTI and Cosmo Cricket.  I've said it before - they are a marriage made in heaven!  Each of these cards uses the same basic elements: a simple sketch, a Rustic Cream card base and a layer of Kraft, Cosmo Cricket Nutmeg Paper Pad DP, Mat Stack 2 in Kraft and coordinating Vintage Buttons (dressed with rustic twine, of course!).  Oh, and I can't forget the Orange Zest satin ribbon. 
Each card also uses stamps from the super versatile 2009 Autumn Tag stamp set.  Don't you just love how these cards are so similar but so different?  Most of all, I love how simple these cards were to make! 
 I've been looking for something fun to make for my kids as a fun Thanksgiving treat.  I know - they're adults, but until they fill my home with grandchildren to spoil, I'll still make the treats for them.  I found these A-DOR-A-BLE turkeys, and I just had to make some!  They were super easy to make, and I can't wait to put them on the Thanksgiving table.   
I was a little sloppy with the white frosting base, but in my perspective the more the frosting the merrier!! 
Have a great day, and God Bless!
