Happy Friday sweet friends!  A short post today – all is good in my world and I hope it is in yours too!  Today I’m sharing an ombre watercolored background with ombre dyed ribbon on a card about what’s so dear to us all – family! How very true these words are so I thought it perfect for today’s giveaway.

This saying is one of my very favorites and of course the sentiment is perfectly cut with a circle.  I’ve been so fortunate lately to have had so many of my family visit me. This past weekend was a mother/daughter dining out, shopping, binge watching Game of Thrones, and pajamas kind of weekend.   As I stop to realize all there is to be grateful for, life doesn’t get better than this.  I know it sounds silly . . . I can get in the car and go visit any time I want, but as she pulled out of the driveway and reached the end of the street – a flood of tears.  The absolute joy of family!

A die cut background or embossing background set the stage for a wonderful palette of texture.  I love working with full backgrounds so I used Spellbinders French Harmony and highlighted my sentiment cut with Spellbinders Standard Circles Small by backing with  Spellbinders Stately Circles.

    Hi. Your card is beautiful. The last time I cried was two days ago. I had spent the day with my daughter and two beautiful grandchildren and as I was driving away my little grandson was waving with a very wobbly bottom lip! Bless him, I just burst in to tears at the sight of his sad little face. Family is everything. Good wishes to you.ReplyCancel

  • Jan CastleSeptember 9, 2016 - 12:48 pm

    Beautiful card and sentiment Becca!!! I am shedding tears right now as I read your blog – reflecting on our small family so many miles away. We are dealing with the terminal illness of my husband, a Father to a daughter and a step-son. So thankful for FaceTime, phone, and e-mails so we can all keep in touch and share frequent moments together. They live on the other coast – thus visiting is difficult in person. Would be an encouraging joy to have your card on my desk to remind me what a blessing family is all about!
    Paper Hugs,

    A beautiful card for a beautiful sentiment. Glad to hear you had such a lovely, loving time with your daughter. ‘Parting is such sweet sorrow…’, but may there be many tomorrows for you two to share. ;) The last time I really cried was at my husband’s funeral seven years ago.ReplyCancel

  • Judy BennettSeptember 9, 2016 - 1:06 pm

    Wow, what a beautiful card Becca and the sentiment is one that will make you cry.

    Tears came to my eyes today as I was able to feed my mom some ice cream. She stopped eating a few days ago and neither the nurses nor I could get her to eat anything. Today she was good as gold and ate two little cups of ice cream. She will be 100 next month.ReplyCancel

  • Kyle E.September 9, 2016 - 1:07 pm

    What a beautiful card, Becca! I tear up every time I think about my brother, whose health issues have made him a shadow of what he used to be. My family spent the Sunday before Labor Day at a picnic at his house to celebrate summer and my birthday. How blessed I am by my family — each of whom made an ugly card for my 65th birthday! Some of them were hilarious!ReplyCancel

  • Dayle SSeptember 9, 2016 - 1:19 pm

    Another beautiful card, and a lovely sentiment. I live very far from all of my blood relatives, but I have a large circle of friends who are the closest folks to family one could ever have. The last time I cried was a few weeks ago when my hubby almost died when a “simple” procedure went terribly wrong. It was a terrifying 48 hours, but he amazingly pulled out of it. He finally came home yesterday and is recovering very well… all of my family and friends helped pull him through it. we are blessed indeed…ReplyCancel

  • Sandy ArtmanSeptember 9, 2016 - 1:24 pm

    Happy Friday, Becca,
    Your post comes as a real blessing this week since it allows me to affirm my connection with what really matters. This has been an emotionally draining week at my job-feeling devalued and unappreciated, a deep sense of disconnection. Many tears. But, healing tears to restore peace and calm. I’ve felt the comforting presence of the Lord assuring me that in the natural order of life there is a “Time for Turning”- and like the leaves on the trees outside my window, there’s a time for letting go.
    Love & blessings,

    Becca…I am in love with this card….so absolutely beautiful…this color is trying its best to be my favorite right now. I cant remember how long its been since i cried but thinking about it i clearly remember the feeling of hurt that was associated or brought about the tears. I really try to dwell on the good the happy memories. Looking at your cards and creating my own brings me much joy.ReplyCancel

        Thank you so much PAM TAS, i really appreciate your message, Andrew is stronger now in himself ,the consultant says it does not look as if more cancer has grown in the lymph gland , however he has an added problem that some noduels near the pancreas are cancerous { he had half the pancreas taken away } and it is too dangerous to operate . I dont want to sound ungrateful but it just seems to be taking a long time to start the treatment .
        Take care Pam and God Bless you and your loved ones

    Becca family is a very important thing to me. Just this last Sunday was Fathers Day here in Australia and I had 20 of my family here, unfortunately two sons and their families couldn’t be here, I get very emotional when told a sad story or see a sad show the tears just fall.
    Glad you had some mum time. its important.

  • Maureen KSeptember 9, 2016 - 3:13 pm

    Hello Becca,
    What a beautiful card and sentiment, thank you.
    I have to admit that a film, music, book, almost anything can move me to tears. Also when I’m with friends I can cry with laughter and happiness.
    Today I welled up reading about a woman who, as a child, escaped from East German to the West but she had to leave all her toys behind so no-one would suspect anything. How sad is that?

  • MaureenSeptember 9, 2016 - 3:17 pm

    Oh, my, Becca, this card is breathtaking! The last time I cried was a week ago upon looking at some pictures of my brother on a rare for him vacation enjoying playing with his two adorable grandbabies. The look of utter joy on his face and the loving, happy faces of the little ones just did me in. It was so happy a moment in time that my eyes just leaked with the beauty of it.ReplyCancel

    Beautiful card with the blues and the large and small pearls on it! Very glamorous! The last time I cried…I can’t remember! My first grandchild was born in July and I didn’t cry because we were exhausted from keeping my daughter company through the long labor (82 hours…long story). So I can’t remember the last time I cried.ReplyCancel

    Good morning Becca, beautiful card as usual, love the sentiment!!!
    Today actually at work I’m afraid while serving a customer, talking about people that we miss and things that hurt. My heart aches that my husband didn’t get to see his daughters grow into the beautiful ladies they have become and pray that George is looking down on us!!!

    I just came home from watching the new movie “Sully.” As my husband is an airline pilot, I was really emotional watching the movie thinking how close it could come to home to have something happen on his next flight. I just want to commend the men who did the unthinkable and saved 144 lives that day. But as we near Sunday and 9/11, remember those that didn’t come home. God bless America.ReplyCancel

  • Sara AlfordSeptember 9, 2016 - 6:09 pm

    Hello Becca,
    Love the card today. I love color! I, too, have 4 children and their families in Texas and 1 son and family in Washington State. Much too far away! Since I’m in New Jersey tears fill my eyes regularly, especially when they hit any milestone and I’m not there to cheer them. I’ve always wondered how one can show love and pride from such a distance. But then I remember raising them all and know that they know they are loved to the moon and back. Becca, you have a way of unveiling those deep feelings that when shared, makes the sun shine. Hugs to you, SaraReplyCancel

  • LoisSeptember 9, 2016 - 6:23 pm

    Again, a beautiful card. I cannot remember the last time I cried even though I am sensitive. We just drove 2400 miles around trip to see three sets of family and it was worth every mile, even around Chicago’s traffic.
    Have a beautiful weekend and prayers to the women that emailed some of their sadnesses.ReplyCancel

  • JillSeptember 9, 2016 - 7:12 pm

    Oh my gosh!I just want to say how strong women can be, and how sorry I am that some of you had to go through the things you did. Also how women can band together and support each other when it counts, like a sisterhood. I’ve shed my fair share of tears and find it’s like a pressure valve for me. I wish you all well with better times ahead. Thanks Becca for this forum where we can express ourselves, emotionally as well as creatively. Beautiful card, as usual, but I can never get past the gorgeous bows!!!ReplyCancel

    Becca, your card is absolutely gorgeous and the sentiment brought tears to my eyes. Family is so important to me- I am so lucky to have a loving, Christian husband, two wonderful children and their spouses, and three beautiful grandchildren. Our eight year old grandson was born with a very rare medical syndrome and many handicaps but we know he is our special gift from God.ReplyCancel

  • NancyJBSeptember 9, 2016 - 8:05 pm

    I cried earlier today. I lost my husband of 50 years last year and the memories hit many times a day. A song, a thought, a photo. This morning I took down a framed anniversary card that my husband gave me many years ago to dust the frame. His message was so sweet and loving. So many wonderful memories. My sons and I were blessed to have him in our life.ReplyCancel

    My prayers go out to all that are going through hard times. I have 2 times I’ve shed tears this year. Most recent was on a trip last month to celebrate our 30th anniversary coming up in October. We met another couple and just had the best time with and I was passing out napkins to dry all of our laughter tears. Makes me laugh just thinking about it! My sad tears were for our sweet doggie, Teddy, that we lost at 12-½ years old. Seriously just totally broke my heart. My silent tears were 3 days ago at the 4-year mark of my sweet Mama’s passing. So glad to read of you getting to enjoy so many precious moments with yours. It’s so wonderful and I’m so thankful and makes me smile to have those memories with mine! Love, love your card and the sentiment is wonderful!ReplyCancel

  • Diana DSeptember 9, 2016 - 10:15 pm

    Hi Becca. I can certainly relate to your daughter’s visit. So bitter sweet when they have to leave. As far as when the last time I cried….how about when I saw Pete’s Dragon 3 days ago! It doesn’t take much to turn on the waterworks. I’ve never felt shame over tears. I truly feel for those that can’t cry.
    I’ve had a hard Aug and many tears for two beautiful ladies in my life. Hospitals are such a difficult place to be, but God’s miracles are all around us. HE is good!!
    Your card is beautiful and the sentiment so true. Glad all is well in your world. Happy Fall.

    Last time I cried…with joy how well my daughter is turning around her life lately. It is truly the work of the Holy in her life…and answer to prayers long prayed, and a blessing to watch as healing happens for her and our family.

    Blessings, Becca, to you and yours

  • MarilynYSeptember 10, 2016 - 4:23 am

    Yes, the sentiments resonate deep familial emotions and memories…a most beautiful card. The last time I absolutely bawled my heart out was when my dog Kainoa died. She couldn’t tell me she was hurting or suffering from cancer until it was too late and I could only hold her and let her know that I loved her and will miss her forever. Her happy smile and wagging tail belied all that she living through and I felt so helpless. But I realized the joy and comfort that she gave me for so many years and that she was God’s gift to me. Her memory lives in me.ReplyCancel

    Hi Becca, Another gorgeous card, the sentiment is beautiful, the die-cuts are lovely and the ombre colourway is so pretty.
    I have to admit that I cry too easily, I sometimes wish that I was ‘harder’, I cried yesterday whilst listening to a friend tell me that her husband was dying. I cry at movies on a regular basis, when they are happy and when they are sad. I am very emotional haha.

  • Bette SSeptember 10, 2016 - 8:59 pm

    Actually the last time I cried was August 31. My sister’s 23 year old grandson was killed in a car accident. A smart, good looking kid with his life ahead of him. Jimmy had a winning smile and was loved by everyone, was fluent in five languages and very interested in everyting around him. To add to this tragedy, twenty years ago his younger sister who was 10 months old at the time, drowned in the bathtub, but was revived and has been in a vegetive state ever since. She is 20 years old now and never learned to walk or talk. She is fed through a tube in the stomach and needs around the clock care. My sister lost another grandchild – her son’s child – when he was a toddler of two years old who drowned in my sister’s fish pond. I just worry about my sister and her family – how much more does this family have to suffer? I wish I had answers for them or even some words of wisdom, but all I could do was cry. Please keep them in your prayers. Thanks.ReplyCancel

    I love this beautiful card and the lovely sentiment. I have been on a trip to spend time with my Mother and all my siblings. My Mother turned 85 on Sept. 7 and her sister and my favorite Auntie turns 80 on Sept. 15. So…we had a BIG party on Saturday!!!! It was an absolutely fabulous party with lots of family, friends and great food! The turnout exceeded our expectations so our family got lots of visiting done. It was wonderful to see how much love and respect these two women of God received from those who have been blessed to be a part of their lives. I’ve had to say too many goodbyes in the last few days, including my own daughter who had to return home to Minnesota but they are joyful goodbyes because we’ve had so much fun together. What precious memories we have made and what a blessing to honor our Mother and Auntie!ReplyCancel
