Cooler Weather

Click Here for Current Challenge

You know the weather can be the most confusing part of nature.  After suffering through triple digit weather, we have finally awakened to a nice cool rainfall making the day a rather lovely day.  My yard and trees are all coming to life with color and I am so loving it.  For three nights so far I have fallen asleep while listening to the lullaby of the rain.  Such a relaxing and peaceful sleep; if only this could last a while but alas the weather man says it is destined to end this week.

I've managed to stay indoors when not at work and create a bit.  Today. I want to share a couple of birthday cards I made as a RAK (random act of kindness) that I will give to a couple of ladies that work in my doctor's office, to celebrate their birthdays (one in July and one in August).  This act will count toward my resolution to perform one RAK per month this year. 

Let me share with you the two cards...not sure which one will be for July and I don't think it really matters.  I just hope it surprises these two ladies and that they enjoy the thought.  Well here goes and if you have an idea as to which one should be July, leave me a comment and let me know.

While you check out the cards I think I'll raise a few windows and enjoy this cooler weather just a bit longer....before it all ends...the rain actually has a fresh clean smell....awwww.

This is my first card for one of the ladies.  I wanted something soft and clean so I chose pink and white.

Recollections Card-stock
Spellbinders Birdcage, fancy tags one
Couture Creations embossing folder
Marianne Design createables folder
EK Sucess small flower punch
Recollections bling

On the inside I used the createable folder from Marianne Design and a Heroe stamp to finish it off.

Plain and simple with a simple sentiment from Hero Stamps

Challenges for this card include:

My next card uses the same ingredients as the first card with the exception of the stamps which were from Stampendous.

I hope these ladies like the cards.  They are receptionist and have to show patience and a caring attitude on a daily basis so I hope these cards will somehow brighten their day, if only for a minute.
