Day of Giving Friday: Pretty in Peach

Card Making Ideas by Becca Feeken using EKSuccess Border Punches for Background -
Good morning friends.  Many of you have emailed to ask about Ben’s progress.  He is still hanging in there but earlier this week he was airlifted to another hospital in the state that could better handle his crisis.  He was admitted with both kidneys failed, double pneumonia and an underlying bacteria infection that they cannot seem to locate.  We’re told that it will be a very long road.  He’s had two brain surgeries within the last year and a bone marrow transplant earlier this year; his immune system is very compromised.  As you know, my John had two bone marrow transplants so I’m familiar with this type of crisis.  Thank you so much for keeping him in your prayers – I wanted to let you know that is a welcome comfort to my mother who is caring for Ben and posting updates.  Knowing the long road ahead, I’ve spent most of the last weeks keeping her lifted and appreciate all your kind thoughts.

So thankful it is Day of Giving Friday and an opportunity to send out a card to one of you, who truly mean so much to me.   If you are new to my blog and wonder what Day of Giving Friday is all about  – you can find out more about Day of Giving on my FAQ List at #11.  My card today is an older card and some of the supplies are not available but certainly I hope you can use this for inspiration.  This is one of my ‘go to’ styles when I make personal cards because it is quick and easy.  It features a way to make a quick border using border punches – I have an older Youtube Video – HERE

For your comment today, free style, what’s on your mind?

    I had a stampin’ buddy with leukemia. She went through the transplant and finally succumbed after a year. We did get to go shopping one day at the craft stores and she got to come to the Stampin’ Night Christmas party. It was so hard watching what she was going through. I miss her. I inherited all of her crafting supplies (she made exquisite scrapbooks) so I still feel like she’s here when I’m using something that was Sara’s.
    Sending positive thoughts your way.

    Another beautiful card Becca. I love that background paper. For me, a dear friend moved to Florida and even though we keep in touch by email, I miss her. She came back for a week but we only got to spend about 4 hours together now I miss her more.ReplyCancel

  • Barbara TranquillaOctober 30, 2015 - 11:06 am

    Hi Becca, I had no idea Ben’s condition was so serious. It is a blessing he has family support. Is is so difficult for the care givers to watch, wait, while knowing the future is out of their hands. I pray he has your faith to sustain him. Even when your hopes and wishes are not answered in the manner you ask, you have honored God dealing with whatever comes. You and your family have my respect and admiration. My prayers will include all of you as well as a positive outcome for Ben. God bless you. BarbaraReplyCancel

  • Bonnie TOctober 30, 2015 - 11:06 am

    Prayers for you and your family. Today’s card makes me think of my mom who had her share of health problems most of her life. She used to say, “God helps those who help themselves.” That’s essentially what your card is saying, so it immediately made me think of my mom. Not that I don’t always think of her, but it did bring a smile to my face. Thank you!ReplyCancel

  • Clare WOctober 30, 2015 - 11:06 am

    Thanks for the update on Ben. I’ve been thinking of you all. Lovely card again. On my mind is what’s for dinner tonight?! And how to make the foiled die cuts I’ve done into a decent birthday card and get well card for friends. On a positive note it will help my die cut mixing and matching. Something I tend to be reluctant to do for some strange reason. Your die cut combos are fab. True inspiration. Happy weekend.ReplyCancel

  • CynthiaOctober 30, 2015 - 11:11 am

    Gorgeous card! I especially love the decorative bird paper. And, the quote is soooo great! Gotta’ love it!ReplyCancel

  • Joni StonekingOctober 30, 2015 - 11:13 am

    Thank you for the update on Ben. He, and your family continue in my prayers. There can be a bit of PTSD in this for you, yes? So many similarities to John…prayers for blessings and grace and healing for all of you…

    I’m having coffee with a dear friend in a bit, and doing some work for a class later on. It is a rainy day in the NW so Fall is really settling in…picking the last of the tomatoes and treasuring them. It is a treat to be getting a few this late in the year!

    So counting blessings enjoying the day. Have a couple cards I want to make today and tomorrow, so some studio time. Thank you for another giving day…you are among the blessings I count.

    What a pretty card, Becca. I don’t remember seeing it posted in the past, so it was lovely to see it featured today. I remember your excellent tutorial on using punches for borders and have used your technique quite often. Thank you again for sharing your secrets with us!
    I’m still praying for Ben and appreciate the update. It will be a long road for him, but I will not grow weary in prayer. I know our God does wonderful things, things beyond our imagining. Much love to you and your family in these stressful days.ReplyCancel

  • Chris BakerOctober 30, 2015 - 11:42 am

    I remember you showing this card (or one very similar). I actually went out and bought the punch “EK Success Modern Cube”. I would love to win this card. Thanks for the chance.

    My prayers of hope, strenth, and support continue for Ben, you, and all the members of your family. Just know many people care and are praying for you. Per today’s question: what is on my mind? I am gathering my supplies for a play day of cardmaking with friends this weekend. There will be ten of us for a full day of learning something from each of us attending. I have not taught a cardmaking technique to anyone before, so I hope I get this right and remember to take all the supplies each person will need for what I will teach. I will be teaching my “Northern Lights” technique. Wish me luck! Today’s card is lovely, soft and sweet. Thanks for the video on border punches. I have watched it before, but need to watch it again. God Bless you Becca.ReplyCancel

  • Ruthie ArmstrongOctober 30, 2015 - 12:27 pm

    Great card! Boarder punches do make for a fast and easy layer on a card. Thank you so much for doing the math and measuring for us! Your video helps a bunch!! On my mind today is to try and not be so attached to “things” (like a favorite old measuring cup that I thought got thrown out)but found, after I got upset and let it almost ruin my day. Life is too short and I need to let go, let God and live!!Loves, RuthieReplyCancel

  • LoisOctober 30, 2015 - 12:54 pm

    Thank you for the update on Ben. May God spread His healing hand over him and keep your family in the palm of His hands. Today I am thinking about Sunday – church first and then the 5 neighbors and their 2 dogs are moving in with us for about 5 days while their main level flooring gets sanded and varnished. The kids are all in their teens and still in school so it shouldn’t be too hard. The neighbors will do all the cooking so I have some time off from that. But I don’t think I will get cards made during this time. I’m thinking this as an adventure with family and friends.
    I thank God for the creativity He has blessed you with and that you share this through the website.
    Have a blessed week.ReplyCancel

    • Karen Roth (@ffpaws)October 30, 2015 - 3:44 pm

      That is so sweet of you and your family to do this for your neighbors. Give the doggies extra love it may upset them a bit.

      I will pray for peace, and love to abide during this time as it can be hard on you when you get set into your routines and schedules and then have to deal with someone else’s as well which at times can conflict.

      But I know that God will bless you for doing it though!ReplyCancel

    What a beautiful card. I am so sorry about your brother and will continue prayers for him. What’s on my mind today is the brother of a dear friend who is battling cancer. She e-mailed me this morning that she would be spending the day at the hospital with him as he is very bad. He has hung on longer than expected as it is and somehow finds renewed strength to continue. His first grandbaby is due in the spring and I pray he lives to see it.ReplyCancel

  • Lisa DugginOctober 30, 2015 - 2:07 pm

    Oh Becca, it’s so hard to go through this kind of thing over, and over. The Lord will get you and your mom through it, whatever His plan for Ben is. He will give you both strength to deal. My thought for the day is I am so glad I got out of work on time for once! Such a lovely card as usual. Love the pearls they add so much. Your new bow die would look awesome on this go to card.

    Sooo sorry to hear, about the problems with Bens health and please know, I´ll keep you all in my thoughts and prayers here too. And what´s on my mind here? Well I´m having a load of healthissues myself here lately and just found out, that I need to go througfh tons of tests and scans here again now, so to be hobnest, I´ve been a bit low here lately. Haven´t even got started on my christmascards yet, and have no idea, if I´ll be able to finish them all and get them out in time, but we´ll just have to take one day at a time. Guess that´s part of life too.

  • Juanita BraunOctober 30, 2015 - 3:38 pm

    What a pretty card. Love the background paper. I must have missed a post when you talked about Ben. So sorry he is having such a difficult time. What’s on my mind …..Christmas is around the corner and so much to do. My first and only grandson will turn one on Dec. 31 so Christmas morning is going to be so much fun with him around.ReplyCancel

  • Maxine DOctober 30, 2015 - 3:39 pm

    Becca you really are a saint – I so appreciate being able to read your posts and admire your work, and see Jesus through it all.
    Today who is on my mind is an (internet) stamping friend who has a daughter in a very serious condition in hospital – another long term crisis it could be called, after an horrific trauma, but her daughter is not responding, if anything, she is worsening.
    Thankfully she is being supported in prayer by many others, but it is still a very sad situation.

  • Karen Roth (@ffpaws)October 30, 2015 - 3:49 pm

    Becca, I am so sorry to hear this. Will be praying for everyone {{{hugz}}}.

    What is on my mind? I think that we should all get together and make cards for your mother to help encourage and lift her spirits and to give her strength. Does she have anyone coming in for Respite Care so she can get out for a bit and do something for herself?

    Your Dies are the da Bomb! I love them Congrats! I could not tell that the Paper bows were even paper I thought they were real ribbons,lol!ReplyCancel

    Hi, Becca,
    Thank you for the update on your brother. I can imagine this crisis is bringing up a lot of pain in remembering your husband’s experience. I am so glad that you have the joy of introducing new dies to bring some balance into your life. Prayers and blessings to Ben, you and your family.

    Life has given me several messages this week about the importance of taking care of myself. I’m one of those people tries to do too much and I didn’t realize how out of balance I am. Taking cues from the seasonal changes, time to let go and rest. You’ve had a busy week, also. Make sure you schedule in some YOU-time – TO DO NOTHING!

    Love and blessings, dear one,

I do love your Friday thought-provoking questions and anything I’d put here seems so trivial. But here ya go. I do team building on ropes courses with groups ranging in age from 5-6th grade through adult. This week I had the privilege of serving the most awesome group of high school students. They are such caring, thoughtful young adults and it makes me know that the youth of today have lots of great things going on. I’m so thankful to be physically able to do this work with them. They’ve been on my mind every day and have made me have a happy face! :)ReplyCancel

    Thank you for updating us about Ben. I continue to pray for him and your family. This must be incredibly difficult yet you continue to move forward each day with your blog and your craft. I know you are able to do so because of God’s grace.

    Your update brought to mind how thankful I am for PRAYER. It brings us hope in times of dispair and unites us in a common goal. It reminds us of our faith in someone beyond ourselves and brings comfort when we feel alone. There is nothing like praying to our Heavenly Father to bring peace, joy and hope. It is divinely ordered and blessed. Prayer brings grace to our lives yet it also takes us out of ourselves as we pray for others. PRAYER is a gift of GOD and I am forever thankful we can share it, even with those we haven’t met. What a blessing!

    Your card may be an older card but it is as beautiful as always. I plan to watch the video as soon as I’ve finished here even though I am sure I probably have already seen it. I appreciate it when you remind us there is a video. A reminder is always welcome. Blessings, Becca!ReplyCancel

    Hello Becca. ‘Tis truly a beautiful card. God bless you and your family each and every day. What’s on my mind today is what’s been occupying me for the past 8 weeks. I’ve been assisting in the daily care of my bff of 47 years who is struggling to recover from a devastating stroke. It also allows the family some free time for themselves. So any craft or card projects are on hold for now. That’s all okay and the sun is still shining brightly.ReplyCancel

    Dearest Becca,
    I’ve just recently discovered your blog. I’ve practically devoured every Becca bit and pinned pretty much every card. Hmm, it’s kind of like getting hooked on a TV series and watching all the episodes at once on Hulu. Thank you for sharing your struggles, your faith, and your passion for crafting. I am a kindred spirit. As such, I look forward to hearing about what amazing things God is doing. I am confident you will have much to report!
    Sent with Blessings and Prayers,

    Another beauty! You wow me every time I visit!
    What’s on my mind? Ben, your mother, you and your family. You are all in my prayers and I was remembering you especially last night Becca. This must be so hard for you at this time.
    God bless.
