Excuuuuuse me while I loosen my belt, holiday leftovers are the absolute best! Good morning friends, I hope you had a fabulous Christmas and are recuperating nicely from fun, friends, family and food. So as we turn the corner and head into a new year, I’ve saved up some little surprises for you. To start out, on New Years eve – some awesome blog candy, so be sure to stop by! In the meantime, a card to share today using a beautiful sentiment from Quietfire Design :-) It’s embellished by setting it on a bed of victorian dies using Spellbinders Victoria Accents. I used two of the motifs back to back and on top stacked on Spellbinders Majestic Circles and Spellbinders Standard Circles SM.
The background is embossed using Spellbinders Garden Lattice M-Bossibilities Folder, one of my favs. I took two of the Victoria Accents corner to embellish the upper corners of the card – I love the elegant feel. That’s it for me today :-)

Question Parking Lot:
Vivace on Comment #27 asked if it would be possible for me to reply to comments. I wanted to let you all know that hopefully with the blog redo I’m planning it will allow me to reply right beside your comment instead of at the end of all the comments – as it is right now people have trouble finding my reply. I have found that most people don’t double back to read comments after they have left them but I promise once my redo is in place I’ll do better. In the meantime, please join me on Instagram – I already reply to every comment there because instagram allows me to send the response directly to you! I also reply to comments on Facebook and Pinterest. Would love to talk to you all over there in the meantime :-)
Oh my goodness Becca, this is so beautiful as usual hun. I really don´t know, how you keep comming up with soo many awesome lay outs for your cards here, but you do, and they´re all sooooo gorgeous. I love the softness to this one, and this sentiment is just sooo great and only too true.
Sooo glad to hear, that you´re having such a wonderful holiday with your lovely family around, and I hope your New Year will be just the same hun.
I so look forward to see, what you´ll come up with during the new year too, and to follow your journey all the way in 2015 as well,and wish you nothing but Joy, Happiness and good health all this year.
Hi Becca, Such a beautiful, delicate card, it is so pretty, anyone would be delighted to receive it : ) Take care.
This is a beautiful card, as all yours are. I like the taupe and white color combination. It’s always nice to have something different from the usual. I look forward to another year of your great designs.

I have been eyeing that stamp myself, and I can tell it is going to need to go in my stash…lovely, soft, monotone card…lots of visual appeal to it! Thanks for sharing…you always provide such nice inspiration.
What a lovely card today Becca. So soft and feminine. One of the delights of my day is seeing a new posting on your blog.

OH, how beautiful, Becca. This is just killer-gorgeous!!! Those victorian dies are certainly on my wish list, and I just love how you have used them here. Thanks so much for the inspiration!!
Yet another awesome card! Love that embossed background! Have to put that on my list of must haves. You know what I would really love in 2015, Becca? Is to enjoy some feedback from you to the comments of your “secret admirers. That would be stellar. Maybe. Just a thought. I know you read the comments. I often enjoy reading the comments of your readers and see what they thing about your creations. I also look out for you blogs to follow in the comment sections. Take care and wish you the best for 2015. I am entering it with a sad heart but I must and will carry on. I am strong!
Vivace, I left more detail in my Question Parking Lot. Wishing you the best for 2015 also, saying a prayer for the cure to your sad heart. You are indeed strong and I’m sure you will prevail in 2015!
Elegant as always Becca!
Please ignore all the typos in that post up there. Man, proofread would avoid that! Sorry again, wish I could correct it.
Very lovely, hun. I am spending my holiday season being ill. Though I wish you all the best and blessed to have in 2015! Love you Becca ~Karen M Roth
Just popped over from John next door blog, to find a truly beautiful card, glad I decided to have a peek.
Stunning, always stunning.
Beautiful card, love the sentiment too.

Your card today is simply exquisite, love what you’ve done with it and the sentiment is SOO true.
