Okay, a little bit of catch up.  I’m a one woman show so when I need to focus I drop off of the radar for a bit.  I’m popping back up on radar now!  So many of you send a note just checking and I thank you – I’m so very touched.  Months of work – I’ve just finished designing new dies and they are going to blow your mind!  These are a bit off in the future but keep your fingers crossed for me that they get approved.  I’ve put my heart and soul into it and of course, you all weighed in earlier this year when you participated in my survey.  I’m listening and I think you’ll be pleased with what I’ve come up with!

For my first day off in a long, long time, this weekend my sister is flying in and I’m actually going to spend a girls weekend filling up on inspiration. I’m itching to create so I’ll definitely see you on the other side of my weekend.  In the meantime I have a card to share and to give away in anticipation of Mother’s Day!  . . . it’s coming!  Are you ready?  Other than the reason that Mom’s are simply awesome, what a wonderful occasion to show your love!
Mothers Day Card Making Ideas by Becca Feeken using Quietfire Design and Spellbinders Heirloom Legacy, Spellbinders Corner Flourish Two, Spellbinders Labels Four -
How It’s Made
For my card today the main focal point is Spellbinders Heirloom Legacy die template turned on it’s side.  Just inside the oval I tucked two filigree corners – although this die is discontinued a great substitute is Spellbinders Corner Flourish Two.   The sweet sentiment is from Quietfire Design and it’s stamped on Spellbinders Labels Four.  I get the rosy halo around the sentiment by keeping the paper in my die and using a Distress Ink Blending tool that I’ve lightly touched on my ink pad (Victorian Velvet Distress Ink) and stenciled by pulling the color from the outside of the die to the inside with a sponge with a very light touch.

  • jean marmoApril 8, 2016 - 12:12 pm

    We usually spend time with my mom and get her some flowers for her deck. She loves watching them all summer. At 88 she is having more difficulty getting around so just making her surroundings prettier is what we do.ReplyCancel

  • lisa808April 8, 2016 - 12:19 pm

    Due to my husband’s recovery, I won’t be able to spend Mother’s Day with my mother this year. We usually go to brunch and the movies. I will be sending her a hand-made card and a store-bought gift, plus speaking with her on the phone.ReplyCancel

  • MaureenApril 8, 2016 - 12:20 pm

    My grandchildren and I are planning to prepare a love-filled dinner for my daughter – their mother. It’s a special tradition and gives me great joy to have such love surround us.ReplyCancel

    Hi Becca first of all what a beautiful card I love the bow and the color pink. That was my Mommy’s favorite color. You asked how I will share my love with the most wonderful woman-she passed away 2 years ago but it seems like it was just yesterday. She was shy of being 100 years-she was a small tiny woman-but she was strong-hard working from a child till her last days. Great cook that if she only had a few items somehow she made it a banquet. She had a hard time with my father but I never heard her say anything wrong about him-even with her bruise face. She was a true Christian her faith and prayers brought our family to be united thru some hard times. This is the way I will share her love remembering all the wonderful things she did all she taught me and the precious time she gave not just myself but my siblings. She is gone but believe me she is with me in my heart. Thank you for letting me share this with you. Have a wonderful visit with your sister enjoy to its fullest.ReplyCancel

  • Yoshiko GlennApril 8, 2016 - 12:31 pm

    My own mother is gone and I will forever be grateful for all the love she had shown me. I know I’m a better mother myself because of her example. I will show my love to my two grown-up boys on Mother’s Day because they have made me proud to be their mother. Another beautiful card, Becca. Amazing how you come up with one winner after another.ReplyCancel

  • Jennifer BaileyApril 8, 2016 - 12:39 pm

    Another beautiful card and I love the use of the Heirloom dies.
    Being in the UK we have already celebrated Mothering Sunday and it was good to share the day with my family. A bittersweet day without one son who passed over three years ago.ReplyCancel

  • SueApril 8, 2016 - 12:40 pm

    Oh, such a pretty card, Becca! My Mom is no longer with us. I like how Maureen spends her Mother’s Day with her grandchildren, making dinner for their Mom. We usually get together and I think the grandkids would really enjoy doing that for their Moms, so we shall see!ReplyCancel

  • Denise BryantApril 8, 2016 - 12:41 pm

    Gorgeous card! Love the layers and textures!
    I hope I will see my daughter on Mother’s Day! I usually make a special card to send to my Mom for the occasion, but she passed away in October, at age 93, so this will be my first Mother’s Day without her.ReplyCancel

  • Chris R.April 8, 2016 - 12:45 pm

  • Lois BeckerApril 8, 2016 - 12:55 pm

    I love the card and the bow is beautiful. Nice dolor for it. My husband will fix a nice meal and the kids will call for Mother’s Day. I sometimes make cards for my close friends at church which they appreciate. It’s a low key day because I choose it to be. Happy Mother’s Day everyone.ReplyCancel

  • Sherry DApril 8, 2016 - 1:23 pm

    I lost my mom 8 years ago and it still seems like yesterday. Every year my sister and I worked in mom’s yard and planted flowers on Mother’s Day. So now I plant flowers in my own yard and remember all the previous years with my mom.

    Absolutely beautiful card as usual Becca. Hope you have a blessed Mother’s Day.ReplyCancel

  • Doreen RitchieApril 8, 2016 - 1:27 pm

    Yet another beautiful card Becca. Sadly both my mother and mother-in-law have died and I don’t have any children of my own so no celebrating for me – other than the fact that I’m still very much alive!! Have a great time with your sister.ReplyCancel

  • DaleApril 8, 2016 - 1:33 pm

    I am a mother so I plan on sharing my love with my children and my family. I am creating lots of beautiful Mother’s Day cards that I will donate to our soldiers who can send to their mothers and love ones.ReplyCancel

    I’m not sure yet how I will spend Mother’s Day. I like to change it up every year and do something different with my Mother and Mother-in-law. I’m getting some good ideas reading all these posts and brunch sounds good. Now to find a nice place to have it!ReplyCancel

    Lovely card, as always! My mom is not with us in person, but always here in my heart… I will spend the day reflecting on her, and how I can learn to become half the woman she was!ReplyCancel

  • Carol RossouwApril 8, 2016 - 1:38 pm

    Beautiful card! Great to have you back :) Can’t wait to see the end result of all that hard work! My dear Mother is in heaven, and so Mother’s Day is a bitter-sweet day for me. It is sad on the one hand, but it is also a wonderful day on the other as God has given me three beautiful children (all adopted) and taken away the sorrow of an empty womb. I like to spoil other moms at church with some handmade love, and to reach out with sensitivity to those whose arms are still empty.ReplyCancel

  • KathyApril 8, 2016 - 1:38 pm

    Opps…forgot to answer question, us three girls r taking mom to one of her favorite towns and spending the night, lots of time together..lucky to still have my mom, she’s almost 80….lost my daddy three weeks ago….take careReplyCancel

  • MarilynYApril 8, 2016 - 1:43 pm

    Not a day passes when I don’t think of my Mom or Mama ( They were both very influential and great mentors in my life. I would harvest flowers from my garden and pretty up the patio or kitchen in their memory. And on Mother’s Day, I will prepare a family meal with two favorite dishes that they both enjoyed for us to continue their legacy. Life continues with little pleasures from the past and present.ReplyCancel

  • Yvonne NicholsonApril 8, 2016 - 1:44 pm

    Hi Becca,
    What a lovely card.My Mom passed away years ago so will just be thinking of her.
    Have a wonderful weekend with your sister.

  • Cindy WagnerApril 8, 2016 - 1:47 pm

    Your card is absolutely gorgeous. Of course one of my favorite color is pink as well as my Mom’s (91).
    My plan is to take her a hanging flower basket of lovely colors so she can yet hang another basket on her back yard fence to attract hummers. And sit with her a spell, and perhaps take her to dinner.
    BTW I can’t imagine that the dies you create not being accepted. Enjoy the rest of your day.ReplyCancel

    Hello Becca,
    We’ve had Mother’s Day in the U.K. and my own mother died in 1980, but my daughter, son in law and granddaughters took me out for the day and thoroughly spoilt my husband and I. I don’t know how he got into the act ha ha.

    Happy Friday, Becca,
    Have a great time with your sister! I’m in CA. and my twin sister is in MD. and it’s joyous any time we can be together.
    My mother (like me) would have just loved your card-soft and so feminine. I was so fortunate to have a mom who was also my friend. I’ll be thinking about her for sure on Mother’s Day and hopefully, I’ll also be celebrating my kitty-kid’s 18th birthday. My kitties are my kids and I have enjoyed being with Sammie since he was 8 months old. Taking care of his mama is a job he takes very seriously and boy, he’s been at it a long time!
    Anything that you, dear Becca, have put your heart and soul into must be wonderful. I wish you all the best as you await decisions but happily have no doubts the outcome will be all you dream of.
    Love and blessings,

  • Bonnie TApril 8, 2016 - 3:52 pm

    Love your beautiful card, as always! I wish I still had my mom to give such a lovely card to. But, I have a daughter and a daughter-in-law to celebrate with, so I am fortunate, indeed.ReplyCancel

  • DianeApril 8, 2016 - 4:09 pm

    Your card is stunning and love that bow, have you thought of doing a tutorial on tying bows, I think they can make a card. As my mother is no longer with us I will spend mothers day with my daughter and autistic grandson and try to make her day the best.ReplyCancel

    Going through the above comments it make me realise how easy it is to sometimes take my mum for granted. Us girls like to get the day off from cooking on Mothers Day so we usually go out for lunch with all,the family.

    Hi Becca. Love your gorgeous card – the dies are stunning, and the pretty floral paper is beautiful:-) We have already had Mothers Day here in the UK – I spent time with my Mum and made her a pretty card and bought some little gifts.

    Since both my mother and mother-in-law have passed on, and we live 1000 miles from any of our own children; I always fix dinner for any member of our extended family who wants to come and join us. I have a couple aunts in their late 80’s, and their children and grandchildren do not celebrate this holiday, so I always make sure they can come to our home for dinner and family time. I make them special cards and it really makes their day! I will definitely be scrap lifting some ideas from this card idea.ReplyCancel

  • Anne MushensApril 8, 2016 - 5:36 pm

    I love the shading around the sentiment and the bow on your card, Becca. Actually, i love everything about the card – but then it’s a Becca creation :o)
    Have a wonderful time with your sister! Hope you hear good news soon about your dies. You pour your heart and soul into your designs, so I am certain that they will be amazing!
    Mothering Sunday is in March in the UK, so we have already celebrated. Sadly my mother and mother-in-law are no longer with us. Our eldest was unwell on the day but our youngest cooked a wonderful roast dinner and we took apple crumble for dessert. We didn’t need much breakfast the following day!

    Beautiful card again today. I can’t wait to see your new designs. I’ll take a white gardenia to Mom’s grave, before going to church. At lunch, our son’s, daughter-in-law, and 2 grandchildren will join us for lunch. For the last 3 years, I make a big deal on mother’s days for my grandson to make his mother feel so special. My granddaughter is 4 months old, so she’s too little to understand. My daughter-in-law doesn’t have the best mother so I try to show her a mother’s unconditional love and what a good mother should be. I have been blessed, since she married my son, to have her as my daughter!ReplyCancel

    Lovely sweet and precious card for Mother’s Day. Sounds like you are going to have a wonderful “sister time”. Looking forward to seeing your new creations when you launch them. My Mother has died so there is no more Mother’s Day for her now. I will visit her on “Find A Grave” and leave her a flower and a sweet memory of the times we have shared. Also, Mother’s Day for me will be talking with my sons on the phone. I am so very proud of the adults each one has become. I am so blessed.ReplyCancel

  • Carol H.April 8, 2016 - 8:41 pm

    Aaah, Mother’s Day. Still so hard to even think about it even though this will be the 4th one without our mama. 14th victim in Dallas county, Texas in 2012–that was her. Saying this to tell anyone reading this to please protect yourself and loved ones from mosquitos. We never thought it would affect our family–but it can–so please don’t take it lightly. So back to the question. I’m so blessed by our 2 sweet daughters with whom I will be sharing my love with. They have grown up and are the best sweet daughters ever! I will also share that love by making a card to honor my sister because she is one fantastic mom! And about to be a grandmother to her 2nd grand daughter. I can’t stop without saying his very beautiful your card is! Love it!!!!! :)ReplyCancel

    Hi Becca
    A very beautiful card again and a gorgeous bow .
    I lost my Mum many many years ago now Becca { i am 70 } but do you know not one single day goes by when i do not think about her and my lovely Dad too. I think back to the fun times we had together, and it seems like only yesterday , they are both truly missed but nothing can take away your memories .
    Take care and have a wonderful time with your sister .
    God Bless .

    What a fabulous piece of art here again Becca. I absolutely love this one too. Sooo soft and beautiful and very very elegant as usual hun.
    I must admit, I don´t plan too much for Mothers Day, as both my mum and in law is dead, But I have a very old lady here, that I use to visit, and I normally always make her a nice card, as she have no kids to celebrate her, so I usually send her a nice card, so she wount be the only one on the home, who don´t get anything.ReplyCancel

    Hi Becca

    This card Becca, is so far beyond beautiful it is just, well, undeniably beautiful and classy!

    I expect this Mothers Day to be similar to last years and I can feel the sadness creeping up on me already. My 89 yr old Mom passed unexpectedly 3 years ago, healthy as a horse but was slowing down. Not sure what we will do but the sisters try to get on Skype and say a few words together, dig up some old photos to share (I just found a couple doozies!) and do our level best to not make this a completely DOWN celebration. Jokes are welcome (good and bad) and photos are always welcome. Beyond that I have no plans as my son lives on the East Coast and I am on the West. He seems to forget most holidays these days….ReplyCancel

    Hi Becca, This card, as always, is stunning.
    I hope you and your Sister have a brilliant ‘girlie’ time.
    We have already had Mother’s Day here in the UK, I hope you all have a fantastic time with your Mother’s Day, share the love with your Moms, and cherish every single moment you have them with you.
    Lots of love from Patricia xxReplyCancel

    A lovely understated card I love it
    Unfortunately my mother is no longer with us and my family not local so we don’t usually do anything special. When we were children we were encouraged to do something to help Mum around the house even something small rather than to buy something> Today unfortunately it is so commercialized and people forget the simple pleasures that mean so much more.ReplyCancel

  • nancy VondraApril 10, 2016 - 2:05 am

    My mother died Sept. 29, 2013. We were best friends and I miss her immeasurably. I was blessed to have her for 59 years. Your card is beautiful and I do make Mother’s Day cards for my daughters and the other mothers in my family.ReplyCancel

    Beautiful card Becca. So happy to hear you’re getting to spend some quality girl-time with your sister. Fun times ahead. Enjoy it to the max! My mom passed away several years ago. As I celebrate my fortune for having her as my mother, I ‘ll also be celebrating my sister’s birthday on Saturday 5/7 and my daughter’s birthday on Sunday 5/8. I’m so blessed. This is always a special time for us all.ReplyCancel

    I lost my mom to cancer when I was a senior in high school. I always spend Mother’s Day reflecting on the time we had together and all that she taught me by her example.ReplyCancel

  • Michelle HogerApril 12, 2016 - 12:21 pm

    Well, since I have no ‘mothers’ left to celebrate the day with, it will be spent with my Darling Daughter, and the mother of my three amazing grandchildren! I am so blessed that they live quite nearby, and I get to see and be with them often!ReplyCancel

  • Rosemary TejaApril 13, 2016 - 8:23 pm
