Day of Giving Friday: You Will Always Be My Friend

Friendship Card Making Ideas by Becca Feeken using Spellbinders Pierced Rectangles, Spellbinders Imperial Square, Spellbinders Victorian Arch, Spellbinders Gilded Gate Two, Quietfire Design - Always Be My Friend -
Good morning friends and happy Friday.  I’m so giddy my guest arrives today!  It’s a big deal for me because it’s my sister and it’s been five years since I’ve seen her, five years since she was last here.  Awww, it’s just making my heart sing!!  I hope to post the other turndown gifts this weekend, time permitting, in the meantime I have a new card to share today and it is the card that you can win for Day of Giving Friday!  If you are new to my blog – you can find info about Day of Giving on my FAQ List at #11.
Friendship Card Making Ideas by Becca Feeken using Spellbinders Pierced Rectangles, Spellbinders Imperial Square, Spellbinders Victorian Arch, Spellbinders Gilded Gate Two, Quietfire Design - Always Be My Friend -
I’m using a Quietfire Design sentiment called Always Be My Friend and framed it using Spellbinders Pierced Rectangles.  On each corner of the frame I glued accent pieces from Spellbinders Imperial Square.  To add some extra interest I worked in Spellbinders Victorian Arch and used the lovely edge as a border.  And finally to get some color at the top of my design I used Spellbinders Gilded Gate Two and just cut the upper curve – it’s tucked in at the top of my frame.

For today’s comment – What’s making your heart sing today?

Rubber Stamps: Quietfire Design – Always Be My Friend
Craft Paper: Cream Lightspeck Cover, Coredinations, My Minds Eye
Ink: Versafine Onyx Black and Clear Embossing Powder
Accessories: Spellbinders Pierced Rectangles, Spellbinders Imperial Square, Spellbinders Victorian Arch, Spellbinders Gilded Gate Two, Recollection Pearls, His and Hers Satin Ribbon

    Wow, Becca – another absolutely stunning card. I hope you have a great time with your sister and that you will make up for the five years since you’ve seen each other! What’s making my heart sing today? Well I’m all packed and ready to leave for what I know is going to be a wonderful holiday, which will include a new experience. Following a cruise ending up in Venice, we return to London on the Orient Express and I’ve packed some vintage type clothes suitable for our two day journey in elegant 1920s style. Maybe I should make a vintage card to mark the occasion!! Best wishes

I love how you always think outside the box in using your dies. This is a wonderful card and wonderful sentiment. What’s making my heart sing today? Well, yesterday I put the finishing touches on a HUGE project for work and not only is my heart singing, my feet are doing their happy dance.ReplyCancel

  • NancyRSeptember 25, 2015 - 8:01 am

    I love this card! I love that it could be easily done with what dies you have and is simple, but elegant, enough for even the novice card maker.

    I am happy because after being away for 2 weeks my hubby is going to be home today. And then next weekend I am going wedding dress shopping with my beautiful daughter, whom I haven’t seen since she got engaged several months ago.ReplyCancel

    Lovely card, Becca.ReplyCancel

  • SuzzieQSeptember 25, 2015 - 8:25 am

    My heart is singing today for I get to work on my cards. It is raining here and it looks like it will be for the following week keeping me out of the yard. Therefore I can “play” in the house, i.e. my craft room. I had a big work day yesterday in the yard, tidding up one of my flower beds for the winter. Seems the chores in the yard are much harder on me as I age. So I welcome a respite time for my body to recuperate from manual labor. Your card today is lovely and sweet. I studied it carefully. Your die combination is awesome. I never would have figured out you used part of a gate had you not told us. Love the tiny patterned paper layer. Wishing you and your sister a great and exciting reunion. I know you will have a wonderful time together.ReplyCancel

Some of my son’s old high school buddies (my other kids as they spent so much time with us while we were living up north), are coming to town and we all plan to get together and reminisce. Haven’t seen them for twenty years now, since we transferred to San Diego. Really looking forward to our reunion and meeting all of their significant others.

  • DixieSeptember 25, 2015 - 9:51 am

    Oh, so many things I love about this card- the sentiment, obviously, the pretty flowered background, the stitching on the frame, the pink elaborate bow, the bits of pearl bling, to name a few.
    My heart sings because it’s such a beautiful fall day, my youngest grandchild is starting to take steps, my family is well fed, warm, & healthy. God is good.ReplyCancel

    Your cards inspire me so much and make my heart sing! Such beauty! My heart is also singing because I have a sister who is my best friend. She is 15 yrs older but we are very much alike and share so much joy with each other. I hope that is also your relationship with your sister. Bless you! Cindi AveryReplyCancel

  • LindaSeptember 25, 2015 - 10:19 am

    Another stunning card! :)
    What makes my heart sing today might be a little unusual. New carpet is going in my townhome today! That means we are at the end of a very long process (10 months) of fixing it up to sell. 10 long months of not scrapbooking and I can’t wait to unpack my stuff! It’ll be great to see all my stuff again and get back to scrapbooking again! Just a little bit longer… :)ReplyCancel

    Such a pretty card, Becca. I hope you and your sis have a lovely visit. Five years is too long!

    This morning it is the simple things that make my heart sing….a kitty sleeping on my lap, a cool, cloudy fall morning, some more tomatoes to bring in off the vine, and some time in the Mom Cave creating. What could be better?


  • RamonaSeptember 25, 2015 - 11:05 am

    We have three wild cats that
    live in our backyard. One, had
    5 kittens in August and we hadn’t
    seen them since they were born.
    We thought they must be dead, but
    then I saw three of them nursing
    from the mommy cat and made my
    heart sing that at least some
    of them have survived!

    Absolutely gorgeous card today, Becca! It could not be sweeter!!
    I’m so happy you are having a visit with your sister. What a blessing!!! I hope every moment is precious and enjoyed to the full.
    My heart is singing today because we serve a risen Savior who lives in our hearts. We can KNOW God personally. Amazing. Wonderful. Better stop before I get preachy.
    Have a fabulous visit with your sister!!!!!!ReplyCancel

  • Maria RodriguezSeptember 25, 2015 - 12:27 pm

    Oh Becca, this card is stunningly gorgeous!! The layering of all this incredible dies is impeccable, what a glorious way to frame this beautiful sentiment!! All the details are just lovely.
    My heart sings every day, we have our daughters and grandchildren living so close by, one next door and the other one just about 20 min. away, that is good enough reason for my heart to be happy. But today in particular it sings because my little blog is going great, I’ve won a guest designer spot at Merry Monday and all the comments left on all my posts are so sweet and supportive. I love the world wide community of crafters united by the love of paper, ink and stamps.
    Thank you for the chance to win this amazing card.

    Hi Becca, I hope everything is going well with your Sister visiting you, how excited you must be, and she will be equally as excited.
    This card is really pretty, the paper is really beautiful and the die-cuts and bow etc are very very pretty. I love this !!
    What is making my heart sing today is – I have finally finished decorating my lounge, and this morning I put up my new curtains and placed my new cushions and throws on the couch and chairs (I have only had all these things for 4 years and not had the time to do it), I stood back and looked at everything that had ‘come together’ and I felt so happy. Now I’m onto the next room hahaha.
    Lots of love from Patricia xxReplyCancel

  • Sandy ArtmanSeptember 25, 2015 - 2:13 pm

    Hi, Becca,
    I am so happy for you to be with your sister. My twin sister lives too far away and we just don’t see each other enough. The times together just get more precious with each passing year.
    My heart seems to be humming more than singing today-too much sadness, lately. Even though there is no chill in the air, nature is broadcasting “Fall is here!”-my favorite time of the year. It’s Friday, it’s Fall and God blesses me so abundantly. Now there’s something to sing about. Amen!
    Love and blessings,

  • Sandi SmithSeptember 25, 2015 - 3:13 pm

    Hello Becca – This weeks card is a real favorite of mine. I love the pink! It’s my favorite color and the die cut accents add just the right touch. I particularly love the frame you created for the sentiment!
    I’m so happy for you and your sister getting to visit with each other! What makes my heart sing? SISTERS! My sister, Sharon, is 1 year and 1 day older than me. We have always been incredibly close so I totally understand how much this visit means to you! I’ve been blessed that even though my sister and I have lived in different states for much of the last 28 years, we’ve only gotten closer as the years have passed. Two hour phone conversations help keep us connected as we laugh, cry and pray together. My sister and I recently shared one of those special chats and I’ve been feeling such love from my sister as a result. I am so thankful I have a blood sister who is also my spiritual sister in Christ. She challenges me but supports me and loves me unconditionally. I pray she feels the same from me. What a blessing a sister is!ReplyCancel

  • Juanelda JessieSeptember 25, 2015 - 3:14 pm

    Hi, as always your cards are beautiful. This one is specially important to me. My Sister is my special friend and I am so blessed to have her still with me. She is 24 years cancer free. With October coming up honoring breast cancer awareness this is so special to me. Keep these beautiful cards coming.ReplyCancel

  • Bernie kSeptember 25, 2015 - 3:33 pm

    Hi Becca,

    My heart is singing today and has been for six weeks because I am visiting with my daughter and her family. I got to see my new grandson grow from two weeks to eight weeks and my three year old is my bedtime buddy. The joy of hearing,” grandma, I don’t want you to leave, ever, ” fills my heart and breaks it at the same time. And who can resist a newborn sleeping on their chest? I do hope that you will one day have your heart filled with grandchildren. All my sisters are out of state also, as is this daughter, so I can relate to the gladness that you feel when seeing your sister. Have FUN!


  • MildredSeptember 25, 2015 - 3:59 pm

    My heart is singing because we had a bit of rain today! Not enough but every little bit helps. This card is gorgeous, Becca, and I wish I could figure out how to snip/cut dies to just use a portion of them. You are so creative. Enjoy the long-awaited visit with your sister.ReplyCancel

  • Carol RossouwSeptember 25, 2015 - 4:00 pm

    Love the Victorian feel of this beautiful card. In the words of Matt Redman’s song, I have “10 000 reasons to sing” today. Bless the Lord O my soul & forget not all His benefits (Ps 103) In particular I’m rejoicing in His enabling grace for a very difficult & busy time in my life. Thanks for once again helping me to take the time to think about what I have to sing about. xxReplyCancel

  • Karen M. RothSeptember 25, 2015 - 4:03 pm

    Hello Dear Becca,

    This card is just so lovely in all it’s wonderful design and sentiment that it really touched my heart after the very rough time I have been having lately. I long to hear someone say that to me in RL.

    I was just diagnosed with Psoriatic Arthritis and Enthesitis which at this time is not being managed as I am allergic to most of the medicines used to control it. Or the one I could take my health insurance refuses to cover.

    So right now I would love for someone, anyone to make me a lovely card to help give me Hope to keep taking that One More Step Forward even as much as it physically hurts me. You can also find me on Twitter as ffpaws and on Pinterest as ffpaws.

    I am not trying to be a Beggar, just honestly appreciating this community and striving to be a part of it as I can, but it is really hard to make cards with my hands so severely affected by the PsA, Tendinitis and Carpal Tunnel.

    I have been wishing so hard for a Machine to help me do the cutting and embossing that I can no longer do with my own hands so ya’ll keep that in your prayers for me tonight, please.ReplyCancel

  • BethESeptember 25, 2015 - 4:05 pm

    Another beautiful card, Becca! I too would love to win it! Have a great time with your sister! My heart is singing today because my dear little Yorkie, Izzy, is feeling well enough to actually gamble and romp across my back yard this afternoon! Shortly after I adopted her in late May she fell off my high bed and tore her ACL! It required surgery and being 8 years old she has been having a difficult recovery. Today she feels well enough to romp! It makes my heart sing!!!ReplyCancel

  • Mary MacSeptember 25, 2015 - 4:14 pm

    Such a magnificent card Becca. I love your unusual combination of dies (I don’t have any of them ‘sniff’). Thank you for the chance to win this beauty. Today I feel like a teenager again because it has been confirmed that my dear husband does not have ‘that’ dreaded disease and will be right as rain again in jig time. Thank you Lord!
    Have the time of your life with your sister and let everything else go to pot, you’ll catch up on mundane things later! I think I’d like to be a fly on your wall. Ha ha.
    Much love Mary.ReplyCancel

    My heart sang today when I got my mail. I send out oodles of cards, but rarely get any. Today I got a card in the mail and it made my day!!ReplyCancel

    I love this card, it is gorgeous!!!! My heart is singing because it is Friday and I am off for the weekend and I am going to a craft show tomorrow with some friends!ReplyCancel

  • Ruthie ArmstrongSeptember 25, 2015 - 4:40 pm

    Beautiful card Becca! My heart is singing today because I got to go shopping and out to lunch with my sister! We live in the same town but sometimes it takes a bit to get together. But when we do we have a great time! Thank you for a chance to win one of your creations. Loves, RuthieReplyCancel

    Hello Becca,
    What a beautiful card with a gorgeous sentiment.
    My heart is singing today because I received an e-mail from someone with whom I’ve been exchanging ATC’s for the last 5 years. She’s coming up to my City next weekend and would like to visit me. It will be the first time we have met in person. How exciting.

    I’m at the stage of life where I’m comfortable and can accept all that life has to offer me….good & bad. I sing the song of praises for my husband and children who have made me the person that I am now. The Lord, my family and friends, my country are my standing grace. I am truly grateful. Can you hear me singing???ReplyCancel

    My heart is singing today because I had a wonderful day teaching fourth graders. I am so thankful to God for His goodness this week as we have moved students and rearranged subject assignments to make room for a new teacher. Big changes are tough for little ones — and adults, too —- and the relative ease of these transitions is evidence of answered prayer and God’s help in time of need.ReplyCancel

    Love that bow, it just finishes it so nicely. You are so sweet to share with all of us. Hope you and the girls have fun, stay out of trouble though. You are too far away for us to bail you out! Blessings, LisaReplyCancel

    Love that pretty background paper. In fact, love the whole card. Would love to win this one. You do so pretty work Becca.ReplyCancel

  • Earlene BostSeptember 25, 2015 - 5:57 pm

    Your use of pattern paper adds such beauty here. You are so skilled and innovative with your die cut pieces. I think it takes courage to cut up the already beautiful die cuts that are produced using the Spellbinder dies. It takes a special eye and talent to know what to do with the pieces once they’ve been cut. I aspire to gain this kind of skill-set. Seeing what you can do with paper makes my heart sing each time I come to your blog. :)ReplyCancel

  • DianeSeptember 25, 2015 - 6:26 pm

    Another beautiful card, Becca. No surprise there. You have such a special gift. Does your sister share your blessings or does her talent lie elsewhere? I hope that the two of you have an awesome time together.ReplyCancel

  • Janice BrummettSeptember 25, 2015 - 7:30 pm

    I LOVE this card, especially the sentiment! You always have “something” new that I will “take away” to incorporate in my cards. Today is no exception.

    Today, I’m smiling as I get to pick up my 3 yr. old grandson at his new school. We have a very special bond, he and I. I’m sure he will want to play “playdough” after we have our snack.ReplyCancel

  • AlisonSeptember 25, 2015 - 7:31 pm

    What a beautiful card! You always come up with something special
    Today the sun is shining and all the spring blossom is out on the trees and also the daffodils.A wonderful time of year as everything is springing into life after the cold WinterReplyCancel

  • Mitzi LuttrullSeptember 25, 2015 - 7:39 pm

    My heart sings when I get to babysit my grandsons. They come to my house before and after school and I so enjoy their little beings. I love being a grandma!! Another beautiful card, Becca.ReplyCancel

  • Deb M.September 25, 2015 - 7:40 pm

    Oh, beautiful card as always!! I’m happy tonight, cause we just had my parents over this afternoon and got all the mints made for my brothers wedding. Getting that boring chore done makes me happy…and the fact that we had an uneventful time with my parents, (have some issues from time to time with my dad…LOVE him, but he is a challenge at times) uneventful being a good thing. ;-)) So, I’m singing a happy tune tonight. :-))

    Have fun with your sister!ReplyCancel

  • Susie NicholsSeptember 25, 2015 - 8:13 pm

    Some days, the song is harder to hear. But there is always something. As I sit here at the table, reading my emails, the sun is setting on a beautiful rocky mountain day. No matter how bad the day was, or how much pain I am in, those gorgeous mountains are a reminder that God is good and there is much to sing about.ReplyCancel

  • LoisSeptember 25, 2015 - 8:55 pm

    My heart was singing today because I spent the day at the beach with my husband and then spent some time with one of our children. Thanks again for the beautiful cardReplyCancel

  • JudySeptember 25, 2015 - 9:33 pm

    Beautiful card. Today I was with two old friends I used to work with. Being with old friends, no matter how long it has been since you have seen each other, and catching up with their lives always makes my heart sing. I hope you and your sister have a wonderful time. Treasure each other! I miss my sisters.

  • MichelleSeptember 25, 2015 - 9:43 pm

    What made my heart sing today was spending time with my granddaughter and scraping together. She loves to do her own thing and I always put little special things in her special box to create cards. It is like Christmas each time she comes over and watching her face as she pulls out something I miss cut or did not need for my project. She has her own mind about what she wants to do and I let her creative spirit soar. Loves the new Christmas card too Becca, It is beautiful with the reindeer.ReplyCancel
