Day of Giving Friday: Do You Dream?

Card Making Ideas by Becca Feeken using Spellbinders Filigree Delight -
Hi there friends!   As I was rummaging though my card bins; I wanted something for Day of Giving Friday that resonates with me today.  This hits the nail squarely on the head.   This is where my head has been.  I’m letting myself dream.  I’m daring myself not to be held back by any physical limitations or any limitations that anything or anyone else would exert.  I’m putting my ‘courage’ arrow in the bow and gonna let it fly and be giddy about where it lands because it can only mean an adventure is about to begin.

A Year of Yes.
I listened to Shonda Rimes (award winning writer) speak about her ‘year of yes’.  She shook her own life up by saying ‘yes’ to things in the past that she thought she should not hope for, things that she dare not dream, things she originally thought frivolous on the outside.  By saying yes, it opened a world of undiscovered joy.  This week for me that took the form of finally saying yes to a trip I want to take, a solution to a health problem, a purchase I’m going to make and a little walk with forgiveness.  Whew!  I’m so conservative, with a well-meaning level-headedness, but after all that saying yes to finding new adventure, I’m light in my soul and on my feet.  (Hold that thought)….

What Do You Dream?
In the mean time, today is Day of Giving Friday.  If you’re not familiar with Day of Giving Friday, every Friday I give away a card to a reader who leaves a comment – here’s a link to my FAQ’s just check out #11.  Here’s an older (classic) card made from Spellbinders Filigree Delight – the sentiment is dear to my heart.   For your comment today – We create our tomorrows by what we dream today.  Is there something you can open your heart to and fully dream?  Is there something you can say yes to?  Tell us!
You all keep me so honest.  Now that I told you that I’ve dared to dream, I can’t take it back :-)  Perhaps as I dream these things into reality I can post about them.  I hope!  In the meantime,  I hope you are getting ready for a wonderful, wonderful weekend.  I’ll be back soon, hopefully with something  . . .  made at home with loving hands :-)

    Such a beautiful card – I have so many dreams but perhaps the one I really need to work on and “make” happen is to get back in shape and be healthier.ReplyCancel

  • lisa inversinFebruary 12, 2016 - 11:04 am

    an elegant card as always! I have a dream of building a kids craft making business, its just that taking care of my little ones always get in the way of trying to make this dream a reality, lol..go figure :PReplyCancel

    What a great message and the pink card is perfect for Valentines day too. Beautiful die cuts too.ReplyCancel

  • Jennie BaileyFebruary 12, 2016 - 11:22 am

    What a delightful sentiment on this gorgeous card. I do dream about making a success of my card making business, I know I have the ideas but I’m always dither about making the right decisions. Shall I, shan’t I? Take the first step, Jennie!ReplyCancel

  • BunnyFebruary 12, 2016 - 11:25 am

    I love these dies. They are so beautiful as is the card.

    I can say “Yes” I have enough on my plate right now and not spread myself so thin.ReplyCancel

  • Jan StumpfFebruary 12, 2016 - 11:26 am

    Nice card. Love it. I think many of us don’t dream big enough, held back by circumstances. Dream anyway. Circumstances change.ReplyCancel

  • christiFebruary 12, 2016 - 11:26 am

    I don’t really have any dreams. i’m content where I am except for spiritually. so I guess that would be my dream, to aspire for more in my faith journey.ReplyCancel

    Another beautiful work of art!!ReplyCancel

  • DottieFebruary 12, 2016 - 11:32 am

    Beautiful pink creation you have here. Love the silk ribbon. You have challenged me to “stay on tract” with what’s true. I do not need to fear the unknown or failure as sometimes those have been unwelcome companions. They inhibit and destroy hope. So yes, I’m gonna try some stuff too that may not make it to the mailbox but certainly will be an adventure. My grandson at 4 had a saying, “a New Day, a New Adventure.” Now a family motto.ReplyCancel

  • Connie PowellFebruary 12, 2016 - 11:37 am

    Oh my favorite colors Becca! There is something about these colors that make a person say “Yes” to anything around them.ReplyCancel

  • Ann RobbinsFebruary 12, 2016 - 11:39 am

    This is one of my most favorite dies and I used it to make my husband our 50th anniversary card a couple of years ago. Love the pink and white and verse is totally wonderful.

  • JeanFebruary 12, 2016 - 11:56 am

    I love the card. I am living my dream. We built out beach house 8 years ago. My husband and ai retired last spring with intentions of spending most of our time there We have had family responsibilities and didn’t get to be here as much as we would have liked. Hopefully 2016 will offer that opportunity to us. God is so good.ReplyCancel

  • Bonnie TFebruary 12, 2016 - 11:57 am

    LOVE the card! I sure wouldn’t want my dream (nightmare, actually) of last night to become a reality. But the kind of dreams I’m in charge of when I’m awake would include becoming very brave and comfortable with driving in the city. I don’t like to drive but having moved to a metro area from a rural area means being very limited unless I gain more confidence behind the wheel.ReplyCancel

  • ChelseaFebruary 12, 2016 - 11:58 am

    What a pretty card, Becca. Thank you for sharing it! I love the pretty pink and lace. It’s so feminine and cheery.ReplyCancel

  • Granny DFebruary 12, 2016 - 12:01 pm

    Love to dream but that is not my creative style. I too have health issues and have put off two surgeries and last week I decided to go ahead with one. I am waiting for the approval now but I definitely am glad I finally said YES. Once I did, the fright went away and a load lifted. Now I just have to wrap my head around the other one!ReplyCancel

    Thank you for the chance to win your beautiful card!

    I have stuffed down any dreams of my own for so long that I cannot come up with one immediately. I have goals for personal improvement in Bible study, diet and exercise but am not sure they would be classified as “dreams.” Thanks for the challenge to think about this…ReplyCancel

  • RaquelFebruary 12, 2016 - 12:06 pm

    Beautiful card and the words are as beautiful. I am sure we all have so many dreams. Mine is that the dream of peace-good health and love prevails all the wrong that goes on in this beautiful world. Positive dreams that it will happen.ReplyCancel

  • Maureen KFebruary 12, 2016 - 12:07 pm

    Hello Becca,
    What a beautiful card and sentiment today.
    I don’t know if it’s a dream, I think it comes more under courage, but I will say yes, and go ahead with a medical procedure, although I am fearful.

  • MaryannFebruary 12, 2016 - 12:16 pm

    What an amazing card here again Becca. This is the card, that had me to ask a local craftstore ehre to go all the way to get these dies here, and I finally got it here just before christmas.
    If I should go for a dream about something, it should probably be to fight the doctors and do more of what I want to do than what they keep telling me I can, because often I feel they try to keep us down a bit, and not to take any chances, but it also often makes me feel stucked.ReplyCancel

  • Wanda ThomasFebruary 12, 2016 - 12:17 pm

    I have to be honest: I’m living the dream. I know that won’t always be true but for now I’m putting the ship on autopilot and enjoying the ride.ReplyCancel

  • Clare WFebruary 12, 2016 - 12:18 pm

    Hi Becca. Well apart from dreaming of owning all your new dies…. Ha! A bigger craft room would be nice. And I’d love to visit the US and go to Michaels and Hobby lobby. Think I could spend quite a few days and a small fortune if I did! Better start dreaming of a lottery win then! But seriously now, finding happiness in what ever you have is best I think rather than wishing for what you don’t have. They say you don’t appreciate what you have until its taken away. That’s so true I think. So I prefer to count my blessings. Happy weekend.ReplyCancel

  • Vicki SopcakFebruary 12, 2016 - 12:29 pm

    Right now my dream is to be able to dive deeper into the crafting world by starting my own business by teaching card classes and or papercrafting classes (mini albums). I would like to be able to purchase products at wholesale and not retail. Otherwise I would not be able to make a profit from my business endeavors. I would also like to start my own blog and get recognized by stamp companies who would want me to showcase their products. I just have no idea how to start that process.ReplyCancel

    Have a warm weekend – we are expecting below zero in the northeast.ReplyCancel

  • Earlene BostFebruary 12, 2016 - 12:34 pm

    I have a lot on my plate right now, so it is difficult to name the one thing that I would say yes to dreaming at this particular moment. I have a lot of aspirations. I suppose I really need to pick my first goal. Thanks for the kick start. Love this card and the sentiment – gorgeous and enlightening.ReplyCancel

    I make shabby chic cards and tags. After years of being told I should sell them, and selling a few to friends, I got the courage to open an Etsy shop. Big learning curve but I am working on being fearless and believing in myself. Your cards keep me going!ReplyCancel

  • Janet CastleFebruary 12, 2016 - 12:40 pm

    Becca, this card is PERFECT…it soothes my soul, and that s needed right now in my life. Thank you for the opportunity to win it! My dream right now is for a few more good days with my husband who is on Hospice. I really cannot think beyond that at the present time for my dreaming, but it is a lovely thought. I know you have been through this too, and the Lord is near and able to keep me strong.
    Paper Hugs,

  • Karen M. RothFebruary 12, 2016 - 12:41 pm

    I have Dreams:

    To get closer to God and to be faithful in my Daily Walk with Jesus.

    Our Vow Renewal (Been working on this one for 4 years now).

    Reconciliation with both of my Children….

    To be Healed and made Whole again. (Facing 3 different Cancers Testing being held up for Approval on)

    To own a home with my own Craft Room.

    To Run my Crafting Blog professionally.

    To be able to Crochet again without pain.

    {Ya’ll might find this one silly but please do not laugh.} I Dream of proper fitting bras. I cannot afford them.

    Beautiful Card Becca! The Lacy Dies remind me of just how fragile our faith in our dreams can be but when we trust in the Maker of our Dreams (God) there is nothing that can stand in our way, although sometimes we may have to take Detours we always achieve the dreams that God put into our hearts when we make ourselves willing to do His Will.ReplyCancel

    I say yes to striving to set goal and to stake a step each day to make them happen. I love your cards an even made this card in gray and white. It s not perfect but I’m set a goal to make and I did. That’s for the wonderful words and cards of inspirationReplyCancel

    Pretty card! I’m making some some post-retirement dreams come closer to reality…a year long training process to come certified so I can train others in lean ironing about my children’s disability…a really common one with a big stigma attached, making it hard for parents to get accommodations and society to even speak about and address….and a smaller time involved one through our church working with those recovering and moving along a path of healing from domestic violence. Saying yes…feeling lighter…right along with you. Blessings with your courage arrows! Let them fly!ReplyCancel

    What an upbeat and optimistic view of tomorrow. Being “conservative” (that’s me) doesn’t mean we have to keep our legs crossed and our hearts on hold…
    My plan is to be open and remember what I dreamed way back when I was unencumbered with the should and should nots of my life. Too old to care about those anymore. I do dream every night and I awaken rested and happy.
    Hope you are going somewhere warm. God wants us to be happy!

    –I dream of a cure for auto-immune diseases. I would love to rid my body of this nasty Crohn’s disease.

  • Diana DFebruary 12, 2016 - 3:11 pm

    Beautiful card Becca. I truly hope your week has been blessed. Tackling ones ideas and dreams can be daunting to say the least. My constant dream is very simple. To get my craft room in order. I live in a constant state of ‘mess’ and can’t seem to get it right. I HAVE to have the makings of 3-4 or even 5 cards going all at the same time. I have a talk with myself all the time about it, but don’t seem to be able to change it. I’m fairly organized, but I really need to stop looking for another project to tackle when I’ve already got one going. I am my own worst enemy. On that note, Happy Valentines Day!!

    Hi, Becca,
    First off let me wish you and my fellow readers a Happy Valentine’s Day!
    When you posted your survey, you asked about what would keep me connected…it’s this beautiful sharing. You bless all of us by being such a wonderful example.
    I’ve had a long-term dream to heal my relationship with money. A couple of years ago I said yes to getting out of debt and now I can see light at the end of the tunnel. An even bigger yes would be able to help others. Reading through some of the comments here, my heart would love to say, tell me what you need and I will provide it for you. Next thought, it’s possible…dream bigger! My prayers and blessings go out to you and all those sharing today that we know, in a greater way, the power of our dreams and the power in supporting each other.
    Love, SandyReplyCancel

  • Maxine DFebruary 12, 2016 - 4:34 pm

    Beautiful card Becca, and I pray your personal ‘year of yes’ will be a blessing.
    At the moment, due to my circumstances, I don’t dream – just keep going day to day with a few breaks :-) God is sustaining me, so as long as I can do some crafting, I am doing o.k.

  • Donna ShermanFebruary 12, 2016 - 4:35 pm

    Becca, this is one ELEGANT card! I love everything about it – the colors are beautiful (pink/light purple) is one of my fav colors, and this die is also a favorite of mine also!!! The sentiment is beautiful!!!! Could I ask where it came from? I would like to try to get it!!! HugsReplyCancel

    Firstly – I love this card and the way the ribbon is tucked behind the panel. The colours are so pretty – and what a great sentiment.
    Secondly – I pray your dreams become reality for you :o)
    Thirdly – I have many dreams, most of which seem unachievable, but I will allow myself to continue to dream and trust that God will open one or two doors for me.

    Love your card it’s beautiful. I have a ‘yes’ dream I am trying to make myself healthier this year by losing some weight so that I can get out exercising.ReplyCancel

    I love this card, colors and all! Lovely creation from you. The depth is nice that you created on this card. Sounds like you are in for wonderful and exciting adventures! I am so HAPPY for you and proud of you for starting with gusto on your dreams. “Let the Good Times Roll”!!!!! I know you can do these things!!!!!!! If you can dream it, it will be reality. Now to your question: Is there something I can open my heart to and fully dream? Uhmmmm? This is not a life altering dream, but today I needed to draw an elephant and sponge colors onto card stock to make something look like the “Serengeti” at sunset. Now I told you this was not a life altering dream, but I did need to do a lot of dreaming to get this card done. I never took art classes, but choose to take band instead of art at school. It would have been nice to have been able to take both electives during school. Seems I am doing more “art” now than playing a musical instrudent or three! It took me all day to do this card, with a lot of dreaming and a few prayers, to get this card done. But, I did get this card completed and it’s not half bad. I even amazed myself in this endeavor. Yeh!! Now I can get back to the “frilly” cards I prefer to make. Being serious now: it seems I am in a rut and have not been dreaming of things to do “outside of the box”, nor dreaming of places to visit to enrich my life. You have suggested a thought and now I must stretch those brain cells of mine to contemplate giddy possiblities! Hello brain, are you still there?ReplyCancel

    Hello Dear Becca, This was a timely “incident” – because I don’t believe in accidents like this! This message is the story of my life for the past 5 years! Praise God for His grace, mercy, kindness and love… EVERYTHING in my life has changed and is changing and I embrace it all. This card touched my heart so deeply, it would be an honor and such a blessing to keep it as a reminder should I be so graced as to be chosen for your giveaway. No matter what, it will be a blessing to someone for sure. Thank you for your constant caring and sharing with us all, for your kind – open pure heart. God bless you in all you set your hand to my friend.ReplyCancel

    Your card is most beautiful. Love the die cuts.
    I find your question hard to answer at this time. I have recently lost my husband and am struggling with everything it seems. Without him I also don’t know if I am strong enough to dream or have the courage to go for it?ReplyCancel

  • Judy InukaiFebruary 12, 2016 - 8:56 pm

    What an awesome card. I love that die. I dream of being able to have a larger craft area and more time to make cards and other craft projects.ReplyCancel

  • MildredFebruary 12, 2016 - 8:56 pm

    Love this die and what you have done with it. I dream of having the time and energy to finish scrapbooks for my kids and myself. Have finished parents and grandparents.ReplyCancel

  • Janice BrummettFebruary 12, 2016 - 9:27 pm

    Beautiful card. You always create such beautiful cards.
    Everyone has dreams, but how many really pursue them? I dream of a house that is clutter free! Being raised by parents who lived thru the great depression, that didn’t throw anything away if it could be repaired, refurbished, or clothing re-created for the younger child–then into quilts. It’s so very hard for me to get rid of the things that still have “life” in them. I dream of a clutter free home, now I just need the courage to pitch the clutter!ReplyCancel

  • Sandra SmithFebruary 12, 2016 - 9:36 pm

    Oh wow! I adore this stunning card and it’s pink….my favorite color. It would look so lovely framed and hanging on the wall in my craft room so I’m hoping.

    I would like to say yes to going back to physical therapy. When I fractured my pelvis in three places plus broke my shoulder last year, I had no idea the path I would travel. In patient rehab, at home rehab and eventually out patient rehab until I exhausted all my benefits for 2015. Surgery on my shoulder 6 months in forced me to chose focusing on my shoulder. Nerve damage in my back has left me in a wheelchair but I realize I need more PT to keep my muscles strong. It seems like it should be easy to go but going back feels like a step back plus my husband was recently diagnosed with a serious heart condition which requires surgery on Feb. 25 plus the likelyhood of open heart surgery shortly thereafter. I’ve put my own health issues aside as we cope with my husband’s life threatening condition. However, I need to find some balance in my life so i can be there for my husband but take care of myself too.

    Thank you Becca for this question today.ReplyCancel

  • Carol H.February 12, 2016 - 9:39 pm

    What to say yes to….a question I had to ponder for quite a while. Sure makes you think. I can say yes to accepting myself and being ok with who I am. In spite of people I love making me feel that I’m not enough. It’s hard. They have some valid points and I’m working on those. But I have to not let those comments define me. I know my heart.

    Good prompt for today’s comment. Whew. There is joy in every day. And I thank God for each moment!! I have many blessings! And to you I say, you go girl!!!! We can all do what we set our hearts to!!ReplyCancel

  • Teresa DoyleFebruary 12, 2016 - 9:47 pm

    Such a beautiful card (and sentiment) Becca.
    Hmmm, Something I can open my heart to and fully dream/say yes to? A good question….
    I dream of just being totally comfortable in my own skin where I don’t feel “less than” anyone else. I know we are all coming from different places and everyone feels this way to some degree. So why do we always feel so strongly that we ourselves are flawed???? (Does this make sense?)ReplyCancel

  • MichelleFebruary 12, 2016 - 10:26 pm

    I have recently discovered I can say yes to things I have had and let them go. Passing them down to my daughters and granddaughters with stories on how I received them either from other relatives or direct family members. It is sad to let go but at the same time my heart flew because they all now have a bit of history and and can create their own with the item. So I say YES YES YES!!!ReplyCancel

  • Deb M.February 12, 2016 - 10:26 pm

    I dream of a lot of things…better health being a biggie right now…I’m trying to work on some of my health problems…so, maybe that’s saying yes to that dream? I don’t know. Kinda hard to fix health issues…but…I’m trying.ReplyCancel

  • Marilyn in E~ TownFebruary 12, 2016 - 10:30 pm

    Beautiful card! Love your Friday give away and question. . . Saying yes, to less, I really need to take on less and do more of what makes my heart at peace and stress free!ReplyCancel

    Your card is beautiful. I have to take pills to sleep and I do not dream because of them or if I do dream, than I do not remember it because of the medications

    Love and Prayers,

    Fabulous card, Becca. I love this die – it is one of my favourites. These days I try to just get on and do what I want – life is too short!

    Good morning Becca,
    Hooray Becca one that i actually might be able to recreate as it is beautiful and in such a lovely shade of pink. I love your cards that you create as they are always so different and out of the norm but always just so elegent that i love so much. I hope that your dream takes to flight and becomes a reality for you this year flower. You have already accomplished so much through just dreaming of what could be and seeing those dreams become a reality and for me, i am glad that it has for you lovely lady. They say everything in America is bigger, well for the Americans that i have had the sheer pleasure of meeting that has to include their hearts. Having had that pleasure at close range(long story) they were the most considerate,helpful and kindest people that i could wish to meet. I don’t have a dream at the moment except perhaps being able to walk a bit better and not be in so much pain but it at least tells me that i am alive and i am lucky as there are some that are a lot worse off than i, so i am lucky.
    Have a lovely weekend flower and follow that dream you have as you are on this earth for such a short time, so make the most of every opportunity that you can.
    Love and crafty hugs
    Norah (glenochil village, Scotland)ReplyCancel

    Hi Becca, Is it the Shonda Rhimes who writes and produces the TV programmes ‘Scandal’ and ‘Grey’s Anatomy’ ??
    I love your card, as always, so very pretty.
    I’m glad you are able to take your dreams into reality, I would love to be able to say ‘No’ and not feel guilty, it is a dream of mine, but as yet haven’t been able to do it. My mind is so powerful that it won’t give me peace. I think I should try ‘meditation’.
    Enjoy your weekend. I’m off to finish off my hubby’s Birthday card for tomorrow, better hurry hahaha.
    Lots of love from Patricia xxReplyCancel

  • BenteFebruary 13, 2016 - 9:13 am

    The card this time is so beautiful and elegant!
    Would love to win :))
    My dream is saying “yes” to my self confidence and not bother so much about what other people think of me – but here I have a long way to go… :)ReplyCancel

  • Jacquelyn HoaglandFebruary 13, 2016 - 11:47 am

    I always enjoy your cards and how beautiful they are. I know that I can’t say yes to my fondest dream to have my sweet husband back so I would like to say yes forging past my pain and limitations to live life to the fullest.ReplyCancel

  • D.Ann CFebruary 13, 2016 - 12:17 pm

    Another simply elegant beauty!
    Dreams! Yes, I have them and I have faith that they will come true! Getting restored to good health is a biggie, but I also have little dreams – short term goals along the way… like finally getting organized so I can ‘play’ with my crafts more. That will lead to another long-term dream of getting published.ReplyCancel

  • RosemaryFebruary 13, 2016 - 1:27 pm

  • Kay McBrideFebruary 13, 2016 - 5:54 pm

    Sorry, I missed out yesterday but I still wanted to comment. I too have decided to say yes to things I want to do, and not let the what if hold me back. I have planned a scrapbooking retreat with my Texas peeps in June. A Disney trip with Scrappin Savvy friends in October. If I can’t go well It will be money well spent. I look at it this way, Prepare as if all will be well, because if the time comes and I am well and did not prepare and pay I will be more disappointed. So I am dreaming and thinking positive. I know I am limited but I am not dead YET!! I am going to do as much as possible from now on. So you do what you want and dream on sweet Becca!!
