Good morning sweet friends! I hope you are enjoying every bit of the magnificent weather that comes with the change of season. Yes, what a time to be outside! I’ve kept my hands busy these past couple of weeks, I’ve been designing new dies and can hardly contain my excitement over what comes next. The weeks are whipping by and every week I look up to see it is Friday again! Today I’m sharing a new card with a new Quietfire Design sentiment that really resonates with me. I imagine it will mean different things to different people and I’m also sure that at some time in your life you’ve landed on a ‘moment full of you’ where you’re flooded with thoughts of a distant friend, a far away family member, an old love, someone who has passed on.
I decided to frame my card on two blue panels cut with Spellbinders A2 Curved Borders Two – the two panels meet in the middle vertically. On top of the panel I added Spellbinders Heirloom Oval on top being sure to cut out the center to form the cream frame. I cut the inside of the Heirloom Oval again from blue so that I had cover for my ribbon that spans the card and to have a nice place to stamp a sentiment. Lastly I decorated with a couple of my favorite Spellbinders Cinch and Go Flowers.

Yesterday was full of moments of you, as so many people wished me Birthday Wishes, so I was gladly full of memories that brought joy to my heart by remembering all of the truly good family and friends that I have!
Today’s card is a beautiful testament to beauty, thought and love. It is definitely a card that anyone would love to receive. My last moment ‘full of you’ was this past Wednesday when I went to visit my best friend who no longer recognizes me or is much aware of what exists in this world. Wednesday was her birthday and though I am aware of her condition (major stroke victim) I still wanted and needed to spend some time with her just holding her hands, talking to her and remembering why she remains my best friend. She gave me the best friendship as a gift to take with me until my last days. I thank the Lord for filling my heart and soul with memories of days past.
Bless your heart, Marilyn. I truly believe that there is something in her that knew your love was and is present for her…that love never goes out without consequence. That time was a gift to her whether you could tell or not…and I’m so glad it was a gift to you as well. There are many who, for grief or anger, or whatever, cannot do what you did. Blessings. Joni.
Hi Becca! I love everything about this stunning card: the colors, dies used, and the sentiment. This is a very heartfelt card, and I can’t wait to make it. Thank you for your inspiration!
Last moment “full of you” was last evening when a friend was needing prayer and several of us gathered around after choir and enfolded her in love and grace and prayer. Truly a moment full of her and and spirit.
Yesterday was my “moments full of you” day. I had to drive my husband to the specialist over an hour away. We saw many professionals, had many tests, with more to come. It is so hard to see my one vibrant husband so sick.
Love love your card, I’m going to have to get those flowers….can’t think of anything right now, it’s been a pretty rough year…thanks for sharing…paper hugs
I have to say moments of my parents happen every day when I use something they taught me. What great parents and teachers they were to prepare me for this life. Can’t wait to see your new dies – I’ll bet the are “to die for….” B-)
mine was of the few moments spent with my dad.
Beautiful card Becca! The The curved borders two and cinch and go flowers are two of my favorite dies. My moment full of you was yesterday. My sister and I went out to lunch for my birthday. This is what the card said that she gave me. “Sisters belong to each other. Our hearts keep us close, no matter what. We’re so lucky that way. Happy Birthday to my sister.” That makes me feel so loved and Blessed! I am very blessed to have her near, she is a two time cancer survivor.
Such a beautiful card Becca. I love how you display and use colors on your cards. I have moments full of you on a daily basis. They’re not just one you but many yous. Sometimes I wish I didn’t have them but I can’t control them so I just roll with them.
Good morning Becca, another beautiful card anyone would love to receive!!! Gorgeous, Gorgeous, Gorgeous!!!
Last week on my granddaughter’s birthday, I know my beloved George told me to wake up because I was missing Evie’s face opening her present’s. Bless that man.
Becca you are truly blessed as are we being able to visit your blog!!!
Have a good one!!!
I love this card. It is so elegant. My last moment full of me was when my husband told me I was a perfect wife. Even after 31 years of marriage. Have a wonderful and blessed day.
Love the card.my last moment would of been when I buy new dies, I would say I am in heaven when I go to the stores who sell these dies.Christine S.
Hi Becca. Love the die combo on this card. Great to hear new dies are in the making. Can’t wait. Youve got me wondering what they might be! I am having a me day tomorrow. 6 hours crafting! In aid of charity and a very good cause. Should be lots of fun also trying out different crafts. It’s called a Dabble Day where you get to have a go at different crafts to see if you like them. I will be dabbling with encaustic art amongst others. Happy weekend.
A very beautiful calming card .
I can not think of anything at the moment Becca i have had a very traumatic year so far ,i just hope and pray all ends well .

Hi Elaine often wonder how your Son and family are going
hope it goes well for you all ! You take care of yourself as well hugs Pamxx
I met my best friend on our first day of 8th grade. We were in each other’s weddings and were Godmothers for each other’s children. She knew more about me, than anyone. She was there for me when my first husband committed suicide and my one year old daughter had open heart surgery. I lost her 3 years ago. She went into the hospital for a simple surgery on Monday, I sent her flowers on Tuesday and her husband called me early Wednesday, saying we had lost her. A light in my world went out that day. But a miraculous thing happened at her funeral. As we were singing, “What a Friend We Have in Jesus” on a cloudy day, a ray of sunshine broke through and shone brightly on the hymnal my husband and I were sharing. We gasped and looked at each other! My eyes welled with tears, as they had so many times in those few days before, but this time they were different, as I knew she was still with me! The heavens share moments with me often. In a beautiful sunset or a lovely rainbow, I am reminded, she is with me.
The feeling is mutual Becca – I can’t wait for Fridays day of giving – it’s becoming my day of amazing paper grace. Your creations are so inspiring. Big Hugs to you
What a lovely card, Becca. The blue and cream are gorgeous together.
The sentiment is unusual, too. When I first read it, I thought of how we often think of dear loved ones who have passed away.
But in your last paragraph you challenge us to apply the idea to ourselves and I find this much more difficult. I don’t have many “moments full of me”.
But I did remember a wonderful thing that happened to me on Mother’s Day a few months ago. You see, I’ve never had children so Mother’s Day is always about someone other than myself. But this last Mother’s Day a young man who has become close to our family chose to celebrate me as a mother figure in his life. He gave me flowers and a gift and a card. I’d never had such a moment before!! I think that definitely qualifies as a moment full of me!!! It was wonderful and I’ll always remember it.
SO pretty! I love the light blue! and the flowers are stunning!!
Becca, I love this card & one of my favorite colors is blue.
My moment was when my babies were born.
Gorgeous card, Becca!
So lovely colours and beautiful design.
SO BEAUTIFUL BECCA!!! ;)
My last moment “full of you” happened at lunch today as someone said to me- “you’ve made my day….after I shared a coupon with her for her lunch! It’s surprising what an act of kindness can trigger!
Hi Becca, so exciting to hear you have new dies in the works. Can’t wait to see your beautiful new designs.
My moment would have been last night when I was looking at my kids, how fast they have grown up! It seems only moments ago they were babies.
Have a lovely weekend x
That is such a beautiful card and verse, Becca. My last ‘moment of you’ was two days ago when it was the anniversary date of my Mom’s passing.
What a stunning card Becca. Love the colors and your bow is awesome. I have all the dies, even the cinch and go, so I’ll be giving this card a try soon.
My last moment full of you was today when I opened some of the many condolence cards I’ve been receiving for the death of my mother. So many caring people are sending such beautiful cards with incredibly comforting words. I’m blessed to have so many wonderful friends and family in my life.
Hi, what a beautiful card love those flowers. I can’t think of anything right now.
Reading the sentiment on your beautiful card brought tears to my eyes! As I packed for our holiday yesterday, I put in my mother’s cross and a scarf my aunt gave me many years ago and the memories came flooding back!
New dies! How exciting Becca! Can’t wait!
I lost my son 2 years again. He was only 55 and the other day he was very heavy on my heart. That night when I went to sleep I has a dream and in the dream was the face of Jesus. The next morning I knew my son was ok. My heart is now full of joy. This is my moments full of you.
Love, love, love this sentiment. Enjoying a cup of coffee with my husband while we watched the sun rise this morning was my “full of you moment”. He is my joy.
Beautiful card. Love the soft blue which makes it look very peaceful. My moment is every time I work on a card or other crafts I think of my crafting friends who passed away.
Tomorrow is my mother’s birthday and even though she passed eight years ago, she comes to me in my dreams and leaves me waking with a smile. Beautiful card, Becca . . . I am looking forward to your new release.
I have a moment full of me every night when I tuck my little ones in bed and whisper a prayer for them. I love this card and have adored your work for several years.
this is a drop-dead-gorgeous card! I absolutely love the sentiment. after a previous marriage and 3 kids, it only took 30+ years to re-connect and marry the love of my life. each day is a
day “full of you”. this is perfect.
Beautiful! Just beautiful! Touched my heart!
Lovely card today with a very touching sentiment. My last “Moment of You” was just today as I am missing my deceased husband on our Wedding Anniversary.
Becca, your card is so beautiful! Trying to think of a full of me moment and it’s difficult to think of something. Tomorrow I’m going to a former seconder grader’s wedding. I feel blessed that I was asked so I guess that’s my moment.
When the night is cool, I love cuddling up with my toasty hubby. While in his arms I feel “full of you”, my husband.
Another beautiful card that touches my heart. Thank you for sharing your lovely work, Becca! My moment was talking with my amazing daughter and having my whole self smile with the joy of it.
Ahhh such good memories of my last “moment full of ME” was in August, when I went fly fishing for 4 days, what great memories I have!!!!
Had a couple of moments full of you this evening when visiting my mom. Gave us all a good laugh and I remembered past similar moments.
Hi Becca lovely card I have not used my curved borders as much as
I should you have inspired me to get them out again!
My me moment was having my two Grandsons for a sleep over on seperate
days last week ( aged 3 and 5 ) it was an education they are God given treasures
and we are blessed !!!
I would love to see you use more of your dies from your last release for some
inspiration as there are many weddings in our part of the world coming up!!!
Take care stay safe hugs PamXXX can’t wait to see your dies you have in progress
Lovely colors and details on your beautiful card!
My last moment full of me…. I am in my element when I can get a trip to Disneyland! My husband idn’t crazy about going, but it’s all about me!
Beautiful card! I love the blue and white!
This card brought tears to my eyes. My last “moment full of you” were the few moments with my husband in the hospital before he unexpectedly died of a pulmonary embolism. It has been almost 2 years but it feels like yesterday. This card is so beautiful and the sentiment is so meaningful to me.
Beautiful card! Well, my first thought was Jesus especially as I was headed to the Specialist not knowing what to expect. Which it turned out that I have to go back again as they did not have my paperwork Yat nor were my images and reports sent to them. All that driving in a torrential downpour to a town 2 hours away.? my love is sitting right behind me and I have him all day every day since we are both disabled and, well, my own family disowned me. But I still pray for them all.
Love this card! When I opened your email…my eyes popped open wide…yes, it’s that gorgeous! I’ve had a few moments of you this week as in fleeing the Hurricane, I landed at my daughters and played with my lil JOYS. (2 of my grands). The youngest is 2 and hates naps. Twice now she’s come to me and said,” Night-night, Gramma. Night-night wif you!” My daughter about passed out when she heard that! This child always says no to naps!!! Yes, I’m feeling blessed!
Another beautiful card
A really beautiful card and sentiment that truly resonates – my beloved husband passed away 2years ago and I’m blessed to have daily very happy moments full of him. Thank you Becca x
A beautiful card with such a poignant sentiment. However turning it towards myself I had a birthday recently and it certainly became a day where everyone made it ‘full of me’.
Look forward to hearing and seeing more of your new designs. Congratulations.
My last moment full of me was cuddling my 10 month old grandchild and she fell asleep on me. I felt so happy I love her so much and to know we have a bond is wonderful. Beautiful card Becca X
What a truly beautiful card and sentiment.
My “Full of you” moment was last Saturday at my Golden Wedding Anniversary. I looked for my mother and father as they would have been so proud of us.
Absolutely beautiful I can not imagine making such a pretty card. I can’t remember the last time I had a moment of me, I guess I am too busy helping all my friends when needed
This is another truly stunning card in one of my favourite colour ways xx
Hi Becca, A very stunning, gorgeous colours, gorgeous die cuts and flowers and a very gorgeous sentiment !!
The last ‘moment of me’ was a couple of weekends ago when I went to a Craft Show and spent far too much money haha (as always), but the items I bought were all for using for other people.
Lots of love from Patricia xx
I absolutely love this set of dies u used for the card today. Just before vacation I did a “me” day – hair nails toes the works. That only happens about once a year. Rest of time I do for others. Hope u got my birthday card and that I had a lovely day.
BEAUTIFUL card Becca!!!! You always warm my heart with your cards!
Have to say yesterday was an example,of ‘full of me day’….learned at 11am, we needed to get a king size bed moved out of our bedroom so a hospital bed could be moved in. Unfortunately the people who bring in and set up the hospital bed do NOT take out any existing furniture. The bed could not be ordered until the king bed was out of the room. I had a call two days ago from neighbors who had heard about Jim and actually go to my church (big church 3 services) offering any help I might need. As the only person I knew in my neighborhood not working was away from his phone, I called them. The couple came down in a 1/2 hour…as well as the neighbor I had left the message with, and we managed to get the king bed into the garage – definitely an immediate answer to a desperate prayer on my part. Hospital bed delivered and set up at 5 pm same day! Sooooo GRATEFUL!
What an exquisite card. Just lovely. Thanks for sharing.
What a stunning card, I really love your work Becca, the blue, and white with the cream. That sentiment is so beautiful.
Such a beautiful card! With our kids grown and married, and my husband teaching college classes, I have quite a few moments full of me. I can enjoy a book, or create a layout or paint.
Gorgeous use of the dies, love the color and pretty flowers and ribbon treatment with it!
This is a gorgeous card. I always enjoy your creations. Everything is always so stunning.
Hi Becca. Love your beautiful card, it’s stunning :-) Hugs xxx
Becca, this card brought tears to my eyes. Such a lovely card with such a wonderful sentiment. I have been following you for so many years Becca and all I can say is that John was a lucky man.
Your card today is full of elegance and beauty. I love the Borders Two dies and how you’ve used them here.
I’ve been out of state spending special time with my 85year old Mother for the last 7 weeks. It’s been a wonderful time of making precious memories but I miss my husband a lot. He has the thoughtfulness to reach out across the miles and make me feel he is thinking only of me. Three times since I’ve been gone, he’s mailed me a package with gorgeous cards expressing his love for me. I am blessedd!
What a delight this card is, both in sentiment and to the eye! I love the blue background. My first thought was that it would make a wonderful anniversary card for a significant other, but your comments made me see it in a different light. Every time I go to the beach I have moments full of a dear friend with whom I used to spend many delightful sunrises at the beach. It’s amazing what triggers certain fond memories.
This is the most beautiful card! I so hope I win this one. My last moment was Saturday evening when my oldest child left me a note and a drawaing to say she loved me when she went to spend the night with her cousins. She is 14 now and it took me back to when she was little and I was her world. thank you for sharing.
Wonderful card as always Becca !!!! Hope you are fully recovered from yor foot op now and that you had a super birthday
Fond regards Ang fromGB xx
thanks for using the new quietfiredesign stamp always inspirational!
I just love this sentiment. I have never seen or heard that before, but certainly appreciate hearing it and seeing how you have used these beautiful dies and colors. As always, your craft is absolutely stunning! Thank you for all the ways you give and share with us!
Hi Becca. I never considered using the Spellbinder Borders this way. I always learn something new on your site! My moment “full of you” is everyday with my husband of 35 years. He’s got a great sense of humor and really lightens up life for me.
Beautiful, love the message, colour and design.
Love & Hugs
Jacquie J xxx
One of my favorites!
