Some New Cards...for Hospice and Etsy

Hi there everyone. Hope you are all enjoying this beautiful day. Hopefully it is beautiful where you are. Some were dealing with rain, hail, wind and all sorts of bad weather. We need to count our blessings when the weather is beautiful. Never know what is around the corner for someone else.
Well today I thought I would post some cards I have been working on the last couple of days. Made quite a few of them as I will be adding them to my Etsy store and for the Hospice meeting this Friday. In the top picture, a very easy and fun card to make. Washi tape was used to make a candle, different colors and designs. Happy Birthday stamped on the bottom and speckles were used for the flame. The candles had to dry over night, then I taped them to card stock. I made a set of 4 cards for $10.00 + postage. I need to make more of these cards, they are always good to have on hand.
This lovely card was made with my new Rubber Necker Stamps. I have always admired this set of stamps and finally got the set a few weeks ago. There are 5 different stamps that make up this design. First the flowers, which can be stamped and sprayed with water, the leaves, the dots, then the stems. Finally the verse. These cards have a watercolor effect, I just love the way it turned out. I am sure this could be just about any card you would want it to be. Name it and claim it!!!
This cute card is just a lamp, stamped and then run through the cuttlebug. The lamp shade is stamped and embossed in gold and popped up. I found this lamp along with a few other lamps at a sale.
In these two pictures are the Rubber Necker stamps again. As you can see I am having a great time using these stamps. Fun to try the flowers in different colors to see what they look like. I like the verses that come with this set, 3 different sayings. They are as follows: (note: just 2 verses here, sorry)
The gentle Wind drifts to each flower at play
Bringing a sweetness of life to brighten your day.
As I wandered the forest, the green leaves among.
I heard a Wild Flower singing a song. 
Well, those are just two verses, guess I did not take a picture of the 3rd card with the 3rd verse.
Time to close and take Kylie for a walk....will be going downstairs tonight and put inserts into the cards for Hospice, so I am already for Friday. Have a great night and keep looking up. Cheers ~ Louise

Love the washi birthday card. Pretty embossing folder you used with the lamp card. Those flowers and the sentiments are great. All of them are such pretty cards.

Beautiful cards. We are expecting over 100 degree days for the next several days including today. But that's our summer. I'm not so fond of summer temps. Take care and stay cool.
