Hello Monday, hello friends! I spent the sweetest weekend with my girls and they brought my favorite dogs with them. Bliss is the only way to describe being surrounded by family. We were all missing Dad for Father’s Day but being together, celebrating, sharing good thoughts and funny stories about him elevated the weekend to amazing. Last week I pulled together a a small but detailed Thank You card to share! I especially like the way it is said “For All You Do”, which to me is a special acknowledgement over and above ‘thank you’ – this by Serendipity Stamps. You know there’s always place in your stash for a thank you, so I encourage you to give this simple one a try :-)
I started out with a 4-1/4″ tall by 4-1/2″ wide card base in cream. On top of that I added Spellbinders Labels 47 Decorative Elements cut into a frame using Spellbinders Classic Squares LG. Around the frame – for detail – I used Spellbinders Pierced Squares. Inside the frame I used Spellbinders Mary Border Strip and topped the design off with the banner from Spellbinders Royal Medallions. Card Size 6-1/8″ x 4-1/4″

Good morning Becca,
This is a lovely card Becca and just so right for certain times where thank you just isn’t enough or seem right for what you want to say. You are so very lucky to be surrounded by such a loving family to pick you up when you need it most. I too thought of my beloved daddy yesterday but like you he is where no one can touch him, in my heart and mind and memories and that is where everyone that truly loves someone keeps them and cherishes them. If you put your arms around yourself this is the big hug that i send to you flower,

Oh my this is so gorgeous work here again hun. Soo sooo beautiful. I absolutely love your cards with gold on, they´re always sooo elegant and looks like a million.
This is just so beautiful, the use of the dies is amazing.
This is beautiful Becca. I love the Labels 47 Decorative Elements and the colours marry together beautifully. The sentiment is the icing on the cake! Hugs Christine x
Good morning Becca,
Enjoyed the day with hubby yesterday but missing my Dad too! Made card for handicapped daughter to give her Daddy with a gift card which surprised him, then took him out for dinner and shop at his fav store, Rural King.
This is just beautiful and nice change from just a “thank you.” Love the layers and ending in gold. Awesome! You made the day start just right!!
Wow, stunning card, so love the die used on this one as well as the sentiment, gorgeous colour too.
So glad you had a very memorial day yesterday, thank you for sharing.
Have a great day today
Love & Hugs

Oh my goodness Becca, you never cease to amaze me with your gorgeous use of dies and sentiments, absolutely ALL your cards are miniature works of art that deserve to be framed and displayed with joy.
I’ve learned so much from you about layering my ever increasing Spellbinders collection of dies, you are such a magnificent enabler, LOL!!
Thank you so much for sharing.
Simply one of my my favorites! The design, sentiment, ribbon and bling are absolutely a fabulous combination! The sentiment is simple and sweet…. The gentle curve is like a soft touch of the hand, or a gentle kiss…
This card is just so gorgeous. Your work is such an inspiration!
What a lovely card, like how you used the different dies and layered them, adding gold sure makes every thing pop. Glad you had your girls with you on fathers day, so you all could remember John.
Take care and have a nice week.
TOTALLY LOVELY!!!!! ;)
Gorgeous card!!!!! But I just can’t help but think that there is no one who deserves receiving this beauty more then you!!!! Hugs, I know that yesterday was hard for you and I am so thankful that your family was there.
Elegant card today! Gotta try it. I will have to subsitute other spellbinder dies, but I think I can get the look you offered to us. Glad you had a blessed weekend.
I hope yesterday was not sad!..and you are just thankful for all the good times you shared!
Love the colour of today’s card and the sentiment!
Hi Margaret, not a sad day at all! Good, warm feelings!
This card is just wonderful,
looking so soft and elegant!
Beautiful card! I would have never thought of using dies as you do and would pass over some of these dies just looking at the die which may not appeal to me. You see the creative side of a die that I cannot.
Lovely die combo, colours, sentiment and bow of course! Love this card. It’s a must try! Thanks for sharing and inspiring.
Oh, how fabulous, Becca. Just fabulous. This card is so elegant, so exquisite, it will convey the sentiment in both words and appearance. What a beauty you have created here. Your artistry is amazing!
I , too have to put my name and email in each time. It’s ok though, only takes a minute.
Beautiful card today , gorgeous neutral shades! I love wearing those colours!
Love Myra xx
This is a beautiful card, as all your cards are.
I have these dies and got them out to have a play
only to find out that the large die as only plain diamonds
On the packet it shows the die like yours.
Are there two different ones On the packet it is (Labels 47 Decorative Elements)
Hi Marion, there should be three dies in the package. Yes I used Labels 47 Decorative Elements. If you’ll click thorough the link I have in my blog post, you’ll be able to see what the dies look like when they are cut. Hope this helps :-)
Thank you for getting back to me.
I have cut the die and is different from yours
also the photo on the packet of the dies.
Hi Becca. Wow such a beautiful card. I love the dies, am lucky enough to have the Mary border strip and the labels 47 decorative element is top on my wish list :-)) So glad you were able to spend some precious time with your girls. Hugs xxx
I so look forward to seeing what you make and it’s always beautiful, creative and just plain amazing!!! I have a question.
I love your storage suggestion for storing dies in the DVD cases from tapeonline. It is a wonderful company to do business with. However, some of the Spellbinder dies such as the Creative Card line do not fit. What to do? Any help is appreciated.
Hi Becca lovely card !! We have Fathers Day here in
September so glad you had a happy weekend.
Looks like we all have to put our details in each time
But it’s no drama XXX
So beautiful Becca thanks for sharing!
Good morning Becca, yet another beautiful gem!!! Sorry I didn’t comment yesterday!!!
I spent half the day in hospital with my youngest daughter who is having a baby but
she’s fine, they are keeping a close eye on her!!!
Glad you had happy times with your girls!!! I too spent Sunday remembering my
beloved husband George and father John!!!
You bring sunshine no matter what the weather is here with your beautiful creations!!!
Have a good one!!! Loopy Lynda xxx
Morning Becca, This card is gorgeous, I’m loving the colours you have used and the die-cuts are so effective.
So glad you had a lovely family day.
Lots of love from Patricia xx
Hi again, Becca, I’ve just been reading some other comments and you asked if anyone else was experiencing the same things with entering Name and email address. Since you have changed your Blog I too have to enter these details every time, whereas before I didn’t have to !!!
Lots of love from Patricia xx
This is genius!! Really. So so beautiful as all of your cards are. Thank you so much for sharing all you do.
Beautiful, Becca! Every detail completely exquisite. I’m glad you had your family, dogs included, with you for a day that was rightfully full of joyful memories.
