Day of Giving Friday: You are Beautiful

Cardmaking Ideas by Becca Feeken using Spellbinders Grand Labels Four, Spellbinders Labels Twenty, Spellbinders Radiant Rectangles and Spellbinders Labels Fourteen -
Oh spring fever, why do you do this to me?  Good morning friends, yes I am working on some things in the background but I won’t deny that the coming of spring is a detraction.   So today is a short post and hopefully I’ll have some gift items to celebrate Easter soon :-)  Please hang in there with me – I hesitate to say what I’m working on because sometimes it takes me a bit to get things off the ground.

Card Making Ideas by Becca Feeken using Spellbinders Grand Labels Four, Spellbinders Labels Twenty, Spellbinders Radiant Rectangles and Spellbinders Labels Fourteen -
You Are Beautiful

Today I’m sharing a card that when made, I had the hope it would speak to the receiver.  That’s what we do when we make cards right?  I’m all about picking the perfect sentiment so that when it held in their hands, inspires them and reminds them of something important.  I’m a huge fan of shaped cards because of the ease!  You have many of these dies in your stash but if you don’t there are likely substitutes you can make – for this one I used Spellbinders Grand Labels Four.  For the focal combination on this card I used Spellbinders Labels Twenty on top I layered  Spellbinders Radiant Rectangles and finished with a smaller label like Spellbinders Labels Fourteen or  Spellbinders Labels Eighteen.

About Day of Giving Friday
From the huge stash of cards I’ve created, I decided to share them with readers rather than let them sit and age.  It’s a great review of some of the tools we might not have used in a little bit.  It happens every Friday, where I give away a card to a randomly picked reader who leaves a comment in our conversation about a thought provoking prompt I dream up to discuss – here’s a link to my FAQ’s just check out #11.     For your comment today – There are so many delightful things around us!  If you could bottle up anything in your day today, just to keep it, what would it be?

I’m brimming with creativity – I just wish I could move quicker!!  Thank you so much for stopping by – I truly appreciate it.  I’ve missed talking to you all but have a catch up post soon!

    Oh my Becca, this is one of my favorites. So perfect for spring, love the melon color with the brown and the shape is delightful for your embellies! If ever I would like to win, it would be today!!! I would certainly “bottle up” the azeleas that are currently in bloom here in Florida. I absolutely love this time of year here, don’t you? Have a great week Becca and you have our attention for what you are going to come up with next.

  • DottieMarch 11, 2016 - 11:31 am

    This card is scrumptious Becca! So soft and delicate. Yes we are all starting to get the “spring bug” fever. But we know we have to keep focused on our greater goals and that’s the challenge. So “Press on McDuff” as I used to hear from my mother!ReplyCancel

  • Pat GiuffreMarch 11, 2016 - 11:36 am

    This is one of the prettiest cards I have ever seen. I to try to match my cards to the people I send them to. I guess the moment i would hold today was the laughter of the children at their bus stop so early this morning. It started my day with a smile.ReplyCancel

    I would bottle the joy I felt after getting an email from my son, the one I’m sure most people have who hardly ever call or email because they think whatever is going on in their life is boring.ReplyCancel

  • Earlene BostMarch 11, 2016 - 11:48 am

    Love this card, Becca. It’s truly ‘Beccalicious’. So wish I had Labels 14 and Labels 16 (sigh). If there was one thing from today I could bottle up, it would have to be the sheer beauty of living a free and deliberate life. I thank God for all.ReplyCancel

  • SuzzieQMarch 11, 2016 - 11:51 am

    You card today is lovely. Its sentiment reminds me that I need to tell more people this when we meet. After saying hello, I should remind them, they are beautiful inside and out. Would we not all be pleased to hear these words being spoken about ourselves? There are so many delightful things around us! If I could bottle up anything in my day today, just to keep it, it would it be: the sights, fragrances, and sounds and hope of Spring. Yes, I know that is more than one thing, but who can have Spring without all of these things to delight our senses and to renew our hope. I truly love Spring – a new beginning! Even here in the mountains, I have a half dozen golden daffodils in bloom. This year the daffodils have bloomed before the forsythia. Such a surprise.ReplyCancel

  • christiMarch 11, 2016 - 11:52 am

    gorgeous card. today I would bottle up the great weather. the temp. is just right not too hot or cold and the sun is out and spring is springing. thanks for your generosity.ReplyCancel

  • Sara AlfordMarch 11, 2016 - 11:53 am

    What a lovely card. I, too, love shaped cards and I’ll be sure to make something similar as I have dies that would work very well. The sentiment made me smile.

    My Mother is 104 and is dying. If I could bottle up her essence I would scoop up a portion of love and portions of discipline, humor, love of reading, brilliance on how she continues to do the crosswords and her smile.

    What I’d like to bottle up today… the ‘feel good’ I will get from visiting and helping my aunt at the assisted care facility where she lives. She recently got transferred to their memory care unit from the independent living section. I know she enjoys my visits.ReplyCancel

    As for what about springtime I would bottle up to keep….hmmm….the fresh smell in the air, so fragrant with sweet flowers.ReplyCancel

  • Clare WMarch 11, 2016 - 12:23 pm

    Hi Becca. I love this shaped card. Fabulous as always. I’d bottle the daffodils. They are never here long enough for my liking. This week I made 2 card caddy’s! One for bottom opening cards as yours and one with the pocket running vertically down the right hand side of the hoop for side opening cards. They work a treat and look fab. TFS. Can’t wait for your new dies to arrive. I’ve pre ordered some so hopefully they will be here soon. Happy weekend.ReplyCancel

  • Maryann LaursenMarch 11, 2016 - 12:32 pm

    Such a beautiful card here again Becca. And to answer your question, that´s an easy one today, as we just went to our son in laws birthday here today, and there my granddaughter just came and put her arm around me, and whispered, Oh I just love you soo much grandma and I just wish we could spend time together every single day, and that´s the biggest anyone can wish for, isn´t it? So if I could bottle any moment, it would be that.ReplyCancel

  • Bette SMarch 11, 2016 - 12:33 pm

    Absolutely gorgeous card, Becca! I love your shaped cards, the colors are perfect as is the whole creation! If I could bottled anything up from today, it would be the news that the moles removed from my hubby’s body are not cancerous, it would be that. And we are having a lovely day too, here in Iowa. Every day is a blessing from God. Anxiously awaiting what you have in store for us next. Thank you so much for sharing.ReplyCancel

  • MaureenMarch 11, 2016 - 12:36 pm

    You never fail to create something beautiful Becca, I try to make my creations suit the receiver as well, their joy of receiving something returns to me as I get as much out of making it and giving, as they do in receiving.
    Hmmmmm, bottle something up from today to keep, going to work and spending time with my clients is so rewarding, sometimes I wish I could just work 24/7 with clients, helping them to live a happy fulfilled life. But then when would I find time to craft ;) lol Another would be seeing your beautiful card, although it isn’t for me I so look forward to your posts so I can enjoy it for a while, the great thing about it though is that anytime I want I can just come look around at all your beautiful creations, then I feel inspired to play :) have a wonderful wkend Becca, take care, until your next post, hugsReplyCancel

  • Sandra ArtmanMarch 11, 2016 - 3:05 pm

    Hi, Becca,
    I love everything about this card. The font for the sentiment is unusual and so delightful.
    In reading over the comments of others, sunshine was high on the list of appreciation but in S. California we are getting some much-needed rain – liquid sunshine! Earlier, the rain was falling so gently it gave me a sense of peace – that’s what would fill my bottle today.
    As seasons change, it reminds me that things come in their own time. Thank God!
    Love and blessings,

  • Dayle SMarch 11, 2016 - 3:09 pm

    Such a beautiful card, Becca! You continue to simply amaze us all with your talent! I would bottle up the smiles and cuddles my 11 yr old dog Alva gives to me everyday… he is currently undergoing loads of shots and xrays and ultrasounds to try to diagnose an unknown liver disease, but yet through it all, he still smiles and loves everyone. I am cherishing every second he is with us.ReplyCancel

  • MarilynYMarch 11, 2016 - 3:31 pm

    Ahhh, truly a soft gentle friend card. Without a second thought, I’d bottle up my best dog friend, Charly to keep her with me forever in presence, thought and memories. She senses every mood and thought and knows how to behave accordingly and is full of love all the time. She seems to be a whole lot smarter than some humans too. These are precious moments that cherished always.ReplyCancel

    Today I would bottle up….my husband’s love. He retired a week ago, and I love having him at home with me. Our son is still at home while he finishes up school for another year +, but it is so nice for Kent to be here, too. We both married late (first time for both of us) and I’d adopted the kids already, so we’ve had little time just us together. Life is good!

    Lovely card today…love the tan and taupe together…and the message.

    I would bottle up spring to keep throughout the year. Open in the heat of the summer and feel the coolness of spring. Of course in winter I would open the bottle with the cold and darker days and feel the newness of spring and the promises of the flowering trees and flowers. If only we could bottle spring.

    Beautiful card today but then all your cards are beautiful!

    Happy spring everyone!ReplyCancel

    I guess I would bottle up our new neighbor’s cat. He really loves us and waits patiently by the patio door for his petting. One cold morning he sat there for 3 hours waiting for us to get up . . and he seems so appreciative when we pet him, talking all the time. Gorgeous card.ReplyCancel

  • Granny DMarch 11, 2016 - 6:50 pm

    Well….if I could bottle up anything from today, I think it would be the colors of spring I am seeing everywhere, soft greens & pinks. Lovely lavenders and yellows. Powder blue and creams. That along with the soft spring rain we had today was really beautiful. (now bottling it up might turn it to mushy brown so using my imagination it would move more like oil…..and stay separate) Laces seem to be everywhere right now also…..awwww spring!ReplyCancel

  • Deb M.March 11, 2016 - 7:32 pm

    Ohhh, LOVE that sentiment! :-)) What I would LOVE to wrap up and keep about my day would be the sound of the frogs in the creek…that is the one thing I look most forward to every spring…and it’s here!!! Been hearing them for three days now, and I just LOVE it!!! It’s not spring till the frogs sing…so since they are, I guess it is, even if it’s earlier than usual.ReplyCancel

  • Barbara WilsonMarch 11, 2016 - 7:47 pm

    I would bottle the sunshine. I have been going through old pictures today, maybe I should have bottled youth on another day.ReplyCancel

  • Dorothy MutafopulosMarch 11, 2016 - 8:24 pm

    Oh Becca what a beautiful card. But what would I bottle up would be to keep the love one’s that I have lost for just a little longer for some days I feel as if I am lost without them.ReplyCancel

    I really love this shaped card. Shaped cards just say you are special and of course your cards always say that and always are so unique and gorgeous.
    Due to my daughter’s and son-in law’s ever changing work schedule, I am often asked to go over and get my twin granddaughters up and ready for school and then drop them off. That was the case this morning. If I had to bottle up something from my day, it would be all the excitement, joy, and energy that all the kids have when arriving at school today. I never get tired of seeing it in their eyes and in their laughter.

  • D.Ann CMarch 11, 2016 - 9:05 pm

    Another fabulously beautiful card that I would love to CASE some day!! Thank you SO much for giving us a chance to own one of your beautiful creations!

    I’d bottle up the memory of mom and dad riding in the car hand in hand. They still promenade through life that way after 50 years!ReplyCancel

  • Janice BrummettMarch 11, 2016 - 9:39 pm

    Beautiful card again to today. I too, loved shaped cards and try to make one every so often. What I would love to bottle up is my 3 yr. old grandson’s happiness, smile, and excitement over his visit to the “Flip Shop” where he was able to jump on the trampoline, tumble, and learn how to “flip”. He was filled with such joy. I am so blessed to have him and his 3 month old sister live so close (only 2 miles from me). Tuesday, he had to go to the doctor, and he called to ask me to go with him. Guess he just needed his “LaLa” for extra support even though his dad was there. His dad is his hero.ReplyCancel

  • Charlotte WagesMarch 11, 2016 - 10:12 pm

    Beautiful card. I met with a friend after work that I haven’t seen in a while. We had a lot of catching up to do. I would bottle up the fun and laughter and the love we share for the Lord.ReplyCancel

  • Lorrayne ingramMarch 11, 2016 - 10:18 pm

    This is a great card. I have that grand label die too. I need to pull it out. Thank you for some beauty in a rather heart wrenching week,ReplyCancel

  • diane forgioneMarch 11, 2016 - 10:53 pm

    If I could bottle up anything from today it would be the sound of my grandsons laughter. He is just 18 months old, and doesnt often gift me with the sound, but when he does, my heart is full.ReplyCancel

    Beautiful card Becca. Love the colours. If I could bottle up anything today…its a beautiful end of summer day here in New Zealand and sitting with my Mum who is 85 and almost blind having a cuppa and a chat is very special. I would bottle up the memory and keep it always.ReplyCancel

  • Connie CMarch 11, 2016 - 11:25 pm

    If I could bottle anything up from today, it would be the giggles and laughter of two little girls, about 3 years old, overheard at a hockey game. It was so precious and made us all laugh, too. Gorgeous card! Love the colors.ReplyCancel

  • Nancy DalyMarch 12, 2016 - 12:05 am

    This is a gorgeous card Becca and I do have this die don’t remember when I last used it must try this one. If I could bottle up something I think it would be the beautiful crisp mornings we are having at the moment.

    Beautiful card, Becca! If I could bottle up something from today it would be the blue sky and aspen trees I see from my bedroom window in the mornings. God is so good!ReplyCancel

  • IrisBethMarch 12, 2016 - 3:02 am

    I missed yesterday’s message but I found it this morning. What would I bottle up? I’d bottle up the smell of of rain after a dry spell or the wonderful fresh smell of newly cut grass – forget the Hayfever, I wouldn’t want to miss that for a anything! It’s priceless. Love the card on today’s post. More dies for the wish list.ReplyCancel

  • Sylvia YMarch 12, 2016 - 3:26 am

    Beautiful, stunning and elegant – everything I love about your cards all wrapped up in one. I would bottle up the fresh smell of a crisp morning with a lovely blue sky.ReplyCancel

  • Pamela LengyelMarch 12, 2016 - 5:35 am

    Another great idea and fabulous card Becca!! Love the grand die and the layers
    I would bottle up a sunny and fresh air day to use on a cold and cloudy one.ReplyCancel

  • Norah McPheeMarch 12, 2016 - 5:53 am

    Good morning lovely Becca,
    Well what i would bottle up but it would need to be some size of bottle though is my beautiful hills when the sky has some soft red rays running across it, the clouds are wispy and just about there but so fine that you can see through them, the ground is so fresh and alive looking and i can see right across to the Wallace Monument at Causewayhead, Stirling. I am so very lucky to be able to enjoy this beautiful scene from my windows or the end of my road. Can you tell i’m an avid lover of my home country and the beauty that it holds for all to see if they would only look. So yes i would need a rather large bottle Becca to keep certain moments of real beauty intact.
    Your card today reminds me of a bonnie shaped handbag or clutch that you could go to something nice with like a wedding or a special night out. Thank you Becca for once more showing us your gift of talent.
    Love and crafty hugs
    Norah (Glenochil Village)
    PS your card that was the give away 2 weeks ago i made with the same dies and colours as it was my mums favourite and took it up with her flowers to the cemetery last Sunday which was Mothers Day across here in the UK. Although my Mum can’t touch her card she still can look down and see what a bonnie design you made for me to interperate for her, so thank you Becca as i know she would love it even from up where she is. xReplyCancel

  • Teresa DoyleMarch 12, 2016 - 6:45 am

    Hi Becca, I tried to do this last night but for some reason I couldn’t leave a message??? At any rate, I can now and your card is simply amazing. If I could bottle ANYTHING from yesterday it would be the overwhelming feeling of unconditional love from my little grandsons as they gave me big hugs. If only one could remember that feeling every second of every day!ReplyCancel

  • rose greenbankMarch 12, 2016 - 6:55 am

    Hi Becca,
    this card could have been made for you! It’s absolutely gorgeous and you’re right, I must use my dies (especially the GRAND ones) more to make card bases.
    I love what you have done here and the colours are simply beautiful.
    Hugs, RoseReplyCancel

  • BunnyMarch 12, 2016 - 7:14 am

    Hi Becca, Lovely pastel colours, lovely die-cuts, a beautiful sentiment and a stunning bow. I love it !!
    If I could bottle something, it would have to be ‘sunshine’, as it uplifts my spirits and everything seems much better when the sun shines.
    Lots of love from Patricia xxReplyCancel

  • Brenda WaiterMarch 12, 2016 - 1:56 pm

    If I could bottle up something in my day today it would be all the love I receive from my grandkids.
    Becca, I just love all the beautiful cards you make. God has given you a wonderful talent and I’m so happy that you choose to share it with others.ReplyCancel

  • Sandra SmithMarch 12, 2016 - 2:43 pm

    Hello Becca! I hope you are enjoying your day. Your card is so soft and elegant. I love shaped cards too and just happen to have all the dies in my stash. I definitely need to give a try at creating my version of this. I’ve always loved the Grand dies from Spellbinders and have quite a few sets. They do make lovely cards. I wish Spellbinders was still releasing new versions. The other alternative would be to use a shape cut with an electronic die cutting machine. I enjoy doing that also but Spellbinders is still my favorite die company.

    I also believe the sentiment is super important.I wish companies would create sentiments with a short sentiment for the outside and one or two stamps with multiple verses to go with the outside sentiment but for the inside of the card. This would allow us to create sentiments both inside and outside. Perhaps one day we’ll be blessed with a line of stamps from you and Amazing Paper Grace.

    Your card is lovely and you are always a blessing. Thank you Becca!ReplyCancel

  • Mrs D GleichMarch 12, 2016 - 5:03 pm

    Dear Becca,
    If I could bottle up anything today or any other day it would be the love of family and friends. Love is after all the most important thing in life. I really admire your talent and generosity and thank you.

    This morning I have my grandchildren over…I would like to bottle up the memories of times shared with them when they are this young as they grow up way too fast…….
    What stamp are you using in this card? I love the look but didn’t see the facts on them
    Thanks for sharingReplyCancel

    The “family” bed when my husband and I are joined by my daughter and dog while watching a movie or tv show and then all fall asleep together is my “happy place” moment. This I would love to bottle for a life time of happy memories!

    Thank you for letting me feel happy by thinking of this just now!
