    I rarely have leftover cards. If I make more than I mail (Christmas cards, for example) I keep them. Usually, I am only left with a photograph.ReplyCancel

  • christiJuly 27, 2015 - 7:14 am

    love the laciness of today’s card. I laugh when you say what do I do with leftover cards. I am kind of known as a hoarder. or as one person said hoarder light. I use a lot of my cards but there are many that I just store. why, I don’t know. in the past few years I have gotten better. I have put some together as gifts for friends. that makes me feel better. lately too many have been needed for sympathy.ReplyCancel

  • KrisJuly 27, 2015 - 7:16 am

    I usually make cards as I need them, so I’m not churning them out every week. I try not to stamp an inside sentiment so for the cards I creatively make without a purpose, I can grab one and quickly stamp a sentiment before sending it off in the mail or using with a gift. The cards have been beautiful all month!ReplyCancel

  • Tanja S.July 27, 2015 - 7:17 am

    Very lovely Becca, it would be so nice to bless a friend with this!ReplyCancel

  • Denise GJuly 27, 2015 - 7:22 am

    Stunning card, beautifully done. With most of my leftover cards, they are given to family members & friends as a gift so they can use them throughout the year.ReplyCancel

  • Ann RobbinsJuly 27, 2015 - 7:22 am

    Morning Becca
    This is a wonderful card. Love Kraft and off white together.
    I never find time to make extra cards. Once every couple months our group make up cards of encouragement for kids and send them to Shriners Hospital in Tampa Fl.

    Morning Becca! Absolutely beautiful card today! I donate all my extra cards to a family shelter. And extra supplies too.ReplyCancel

  • Doreen RitchieJuly 27, 2015 - 7:25 am

    Another lovely card today, as always. Since I make my cards specifically for individuals, I don’t have any left over.

    Occasionally I will go through my stash of cards and donate the ones that I no longer want.ReplyCancel

    I have a teenage friend coming over this week. Plan to let her create some cards. She will do great.ReplyCancel

    Lovely card as always. I tend to use all of my cards but sell any extra for an anti trafficking charity here in Spain. XxxReplyCancel

  • Janet CobbJuly 27, 2015 - 7:32 am

    Leftover cards? What’s that? ;) I always have a big stash of cards on hand so that I don’t get caught off guard! This is another beautiful creation…very elegant! Love the sentiment!ReplyCancel

  • Annelie S.July 27, 2015 - 7:37 am

    I never have any leftovers. Always try to make ahead especially for birthdays. Love your card, Becca. They are always so elegant.ReplyCancel

  • Mitzi LuttrullJuly 27, 2015 - 7:38 am

    HI Bekka,

    I love the look of delicacy that the lace paper gives to this card’s appearance.

    I keep a stash of extra cards for those moments when I can’t create a new one for a specific occasion. Often I change the sentiment that I originally put on the card. I also bundle them and donate to various charities for their fundraisers. The handmade card basket is often a very popular choice for people to bid on.

    Thank you for another day to win one of your gorgeous cards.

  • Janet SaievaJuly 27, 2015 - 7:41 am

    Another stunning, elegant card!!! I love it and your gorgeous bow! I rarely ever have leftover cards…I need so many during the year. However, I do like to give some as gifts to the people who appreciate my cards. Have a beautiful day Becca!ReplyCancel

  • PatJuly 27, 2015 - 7:41 am

    Hi Becca
    Firstly let me thank you for this 30 days of inspiration, you have awakened my mojo which has been sleeping of late.

    When I have surplus cards I donate them to the local hospice who sell them to raise funds.

  • DebraK in FloridaJuly 27, 2015 - 7:43 am

    I don’t make enough cards to have leftovers. I wish I could get ahead of the game, but too many occassions to keep up with. I’m hoping that changes in a few years when I retire. If I did have leftovers, I would bundle some and give as gifts to family and also to troops oversees.
    Beautiful card, I love your bow.ReplyCancel

  • DK KeelsJuly 27, 2015 - 7:43 am

    I do not believe that I have ever used the words “leftovers” and “cards” in the same sentence. Thinking back, I seem to simply create the number of cards I need.ReplyCancel

  • CheriJuly 27, 2015 - 7:44 am

    I never have any leftovers LOL!ReplyCancel

  • Judy InukaiJuly 27, 2015 - 7:48 am

    Gorgeous card. I really like the white lace over the kraft an that yummy peach bow! I don’t create a lot of cards ahead. Often I’ll realize, Oops I need a birthday card for this week and quick whip one up. I do try to have thinking of you cards on hand though. About the only time I have leftover cards is at Christmas, then I just save them to send the next year.ReplyCancel

  • Jacquelyn AlexanderJuly 27, 2015 - 7:50 am

    I don’t make cards unless they are for someone. I am a contributor to OWH but have sent my last donations. I will make future cards for a senior and/or nursing home.ReplyCancel

  • Lela PlattJuly 27, 2015 - 7:50 am

    I usually send most of my cards out, but I save my left over cards and donate to the church for their annual fall festival. Today’s card is truly beautiful.ReplyCancel

  • TammieJuly 27, 2015 - 7:50 am

    Ooh! Chances all years long! Exciting! Your blog is always an inspiration and I would blog-by daily even without giveaways. Thanks for your generosity.

    I usually gather cards I’ve made and donate them to someone or an organization. I also enjoy contributing to Operation Write Home.ReplyCancel

  • Colleen HowellJuly 27, 2015 - 7:53 am

    That would be awesome to continue this, I have so enjoyed seeing new and old cards. I have not won any of these beautiful cards but still could, I hope. I give them away, send them when something comes up or sell them to my family and friends because they would rather pay me a couple of bucks for something I made then purchase them at the store.ReplyCancel

  • carolbJuly 27, 2015 - 7:54 am

    Leftover cards? Who has leftover cards? I use all of mine as I need them.ReplyCancel

  • BunnyJuly 27, 2015 - 7:56 am

    Love the card plus the little peach pearls.

    I like to donate my cards. If they’re seasonal I make sure to give plenty of time for the cards to be given away. It’s fun to donate because not only is someone happy to receive them, then they get to give them away. I’m speaking of our church secretary giving them away as needed.ReplyCancel

  • Kathy mJuly 27, 2015 - 7:58 am

    I keep some and donate some… Today’s card is beautiful…ReplyCancel

  • Lea Ann H.July 27, 2015 - 8:01 am

    Don’t know that I’ve ever had “leftover” cards. I send many, create gifts for friends with some, donate to fundraising auctions with others. My card stash box is often empty!ReplyCancel

    Scrumptious card!

    Some cards I donate, some I sell, and some I give away.ReplyCancel

  • DalyceJuly 27, 2015 - 8:03 am

    Another beautiful card. You have been very busy this month.
    I have so many people to give cards to, I never have leftover cards. Wish I did.ReplyCancel

  • bJuly 27, 2015 - 8:04 am

    I have leftover cards. Some I made in the beginning. It is nice to see that I have improved. I get on a new idea and then make several cards.ReplyCancel

  • Pat GiuffreJuly 27, 2015 - 8:08 am

    I give my extra cards as gifts to my neighbor’s. Some are older ladies so I provide the stamps also because it’s hard for them go get out sometimes. They love the cards and when their children and grandchildren come to visit they thank me. It is very rewarding! Especially when sometimes they were cards I thought were not my best, they still bring sunshine to someone.ReplyCancel

  • Faulba DorsettJuly 27, 2015 - 8:11 am

    I use the cards I make, but I save the cards I receive in swaps and the cards very special people send me.ReplyCancel

  • Cathie WearyJuly 27, 2015 - 8:12 am

    Gorgeous card today. Just love that bow. I really don’t have any leftover cards. I have so many that I make for people that I have trouble keeping up with them.ReplyCancel

  • Victoria DentJuly 27, 2015 - 8:14 am

    I don’t ever have the chance to have left over cards. My sister is a huge card person and she likes to give my cards as gifts or tokens of appreciation where she works. Win, win for both of us.ReplyCancel

  • Becky GreenJuly 27, 2015 - 8:15 am

    WHAT A GORGEOUS BACKGROUND STAMP & the edges are just a lovely!!!!!! Well, & EVERYTHING ELSE TOO, Becca! LOL ;)TOTALLY GORGEOUS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I love the peach bow & the Kraft paper also.

    I hang on to all my old cards, for when I might need one in a jiffy! I also think if I croak before I use them all, our kids could use them! LOL ;)ReplyCancel

  • Pat BargerJuly 27, 2015 - 8:17 am

    Your card is Gorgeous today Becca! I love all the different elements you put into each card.

    I send out most of my cards, but this year I’m going to donate some of them to our ladies church group that has a bazaar each year to benefit missionaries.

    Hugs, PatReplyCancel

  • Christine MillerJuly 27, 2015 - 8:19 am

    It’s been twenty seven days of fabulous card making inspiration, and time has flown! I usually don’t have too many excess cards. I send cards within my circles of family, church family, co-workers,and friends. When thinking of all the opportunities to thank, to celebrate, and to encourage, there is a big need for cards! I also share them with my elementary school students, and they love them!ReplyCancel

    Hi Becca great card but l think all your cards are super,any cards l have left l give to any charity that needs them hugs lindaReplyCancel

  • DottieJuly 27, 2015 - 8:36 am

    Beautiful card…do love the lacy look. When I make men’s cards I make around 5 of them to keep for future male card needs. I have a few extra cards that I make along the way for women, but usually I make a card specific to the person and their likes. My stash is small and wish it were larger as I have lots of cards to send out all year long and to simply grab one would be wonderful. My hubby is always asking me for encouragement cards and sympathy cards (he mentors men) so I do have a few of those built up but nothing printed inside. I don’t feel so alone now after reading all the comments on not having a very big stash. Seems like most of us make a card for the moment needed.ReplyCancel

  • SueJuly 27, 2015 - 8:40 am

    A stunning, absolutely gorgeous card, Becca and that bow – wow!
    I keep some on hand, donate some and sell to a few neighbours.ReplyCancel

  • Bette SchroderJuly 27, 2015 - 8:42 am

    You are giving away some of your beautiful cards?!! Oh my! I would dearly love one of your creations! I’ve been following your blog for a number of years and admire your creativeity. I have even tried to duplicate several of them, but they never look as “perfect” as yours. You are a true inspiration to all card makers and I thank you for sharing that inspiration with us. I’m looking for my name on that list with fingers crossed! Thank you, thank you!ReplyCancel

    • Bette SchroderJuly 27, 2015 - 8:49 am

      I meant to add that I send my cards to family and friends. I also bundle six of them together and give as presents. I love making cards.ReplyCancel

  • Raya R.July 27, 2015 - 8:52 am

    Another beauty Becca! I sell cards, so the ones that are leftovers, I place in a markdown bin and sell as a grouping for example three for ten dollars.ReplyCancel

  • RosemaryJuly 27, 2015 - 9:05 am

    I use almost all of my cards, I send just because, thinking of you and the like to family and friends, I know they appreciated getting them, they say they look forward to getting them. I have heard that several people are waiting to get one of my cards because they have been told how beautiful they are. At Christmas time I make about 100 cards and take them to the local
    nursing home, there are so many people who never get a card or visitor I find that to be very sad and hope that this brightened their holiday just a little.ReplyCancel

  • Charlene DahlbergJuly 27, 2015 - 9:09 am

    HI Becca,

    Yes, there are always a lot of cards so for those I don’t send out, I give some to family members to send and donate others.ReplyCancel

  • LageneJuly 27, 2015 - 9:11 am

    Gorgeous, elegant card! I give some to family to use and I use the rest.ReplyCancel

  • Chris SmartJuly 27, 2015 - 9:12 am

    I make way too many cards, probably because I am no longer able to work due to chronic illness. I find making cards therapeutic. I donate my extra cards to 2 local children’s charities here in the UK who have have helped members of my family. One of these days I will perfect my bow making skills to make such beautiful ones as yours!ReplyCancel

  • Diane Lynne C.July 27, 2015 - 9:12 am

    Lovely card. Any friend would treasure this card.
    I share my homemade cards with family and friends. At family get togethers, I bring my box of cards and by the end of the night all are gone.ReplyCancel

  • Niki WinchellJuly 27, 2015 - 9:16 am

    I seldom have left over cards. I give cards to my mother and mother in law as gifts. They still send out hand written notes and love the hand made cards.

    I hope you will continue your recognition of hand made and hand written items. It’s such a joy to see your lovely work, and I think important for us to revel in the personal touch.

    there are 31 days in July, so maybe you could extend this one more day??

    Thanks for sharingReplyCancel

  • Stephanie WJuly 27, 2015 - 9:21 am

    Most of my cards get sent out to friends and family. I have a few sitting around but really not many. I tend to send them out in groups so I’m sure the rest will be on their way soon.ReplyCancel

  • Debbie BauderJuly 27, 2015 - 9:21 am

    When I have cards left over I give them to my neighbor to bring to her church. They have a group of women making cards for different occasions to give to church members. It makes me feel good knowing the cards are for a good cause.ReplyCancel

  • Judy SmedleyJuly 27, 2015 - 9:23 am

    Leftover cards – eventually get used, many times they are given in a gift pack as part of the gift. Most of my friends not only love to get the handmade cards but they love to give them also.ReplyCancel

    Hi Becca, and good evening from Melbourne, Australia.

    What a gorgeous card. Really like the brown and white combinations.

    With my leftover cards, I often put them into my neighbour’s mail boxes and they would love it. Sometimes they might return with some beautiful organic produce, like sweet potatoes and veggies.


  • Christine Harrop, Oxfordshire, UKJuly 27, 2015 - 9:31 am

    Oh dear, day 27 so we are nearly at the end and won’t that be a sad day. I’m afraid I hoard my cards like my stash …. lol! I do like to be ahead so that I can just grab a card when I need it. Don’t add a verse/sentiment inside until I need it. I do give a lot of cards to my sister so that she always has some in hand too. Friends say I should sell them but I don’t have the nerve! Hugs Christine xxReplyCancel

  • D.Ann CJuly 27, 2015 - 9:34 am

    Oh, how sweet today’s card is!!
    Leftover cards?! Who has leftover cards?!! I can barely keep up with cards I need.
    Once in a while I do one for a challenge that I don’t have a plan for. These I save up and give to a friend who loves to give out cards.ReplyCancel

    What a beautiful card!! I do a little of both, tyr to use and also donate some. thanks for chance to win!ReplyCancel

  • SuzzieQJuly 27, 2015 - 9:39 am

    WOW, your card today is gorgeous! A true heirloom look to it. I am not farmilar with this Floral Lace background stamp, but it is awesome. I hope I can find this stamp so I can purchase it. Love the way you have layered this card, the use of the belly-band, and of course your beautiful bow finishes this card in a stunning way! Your talents amaze me everyday. Regarding your question today: What I do with left-over cards. At this time, I don’t have left-over cards. Currently the cards I make are one of a kind, and I make one card per person per occassion. I would be wise to have a few extras on hand so as to not “get behind” when more occassions come up than I have time to work on my cards.ReplyCancel

  • Jane BJuly 27, 2015 - 9:42 am

    Hi Becca, What a gorgeous card to start this new week. Unbelievable the bow you made !! Time has really passed quickly this month and I do appreciate the time you spend on us ,to share your talent,read the comments and to post the cards to the winners, very generous of you Becca thank you so much.
    I never have too many cards as the surplus I make I donate. Take care Jane B.ReplyCancel

  • Judy CoveyJuly 27, 2015 - 9:51 am

    I love the greeting, the beautiful peach colored bow and the dies that you used to create such a magnificent card Becca. When I find that I have an abundance of homemade cards I usually donate them to a second hand store that uses the proceeds for families in the community.ReplyCancel

    Some I keep for inspiration when needed. I give them as all occasion card in a set w/ envelopes for a gift.ReplyCancel

  • Clare WJuly 27, 2015 - 9:58 am

    Love this card, especially that wonderful triple bow wow! As for leftovercards, I don’t really have them as I make for specific people. Sometimes I just do a generic ard and I keep those in a box for when I have a mad moment and need a quick card for someone or in an emergency such as a thank you, get well or sympathy etc…ReplyCancel

  • Kristine VencelJuly 27, 2015 - 9:59 am

    What do I do with my extra cards? Well, I have been keeping a lot of them as samples to make again. Some I have used when I needed a card in a hurry. Some I have donated to our club here for raffle events.
    It seems mostly that I never have the right card for the right reason, or I don’t have a card that fits the personality of the person I want to send a card to. Does that make sense? I am in the middles of making a card for a birthday this week for a person with a ” bright & colorful” persona. Of course my card will be bright & colorful to match.
    I also have finally learned when making cards in classes to not add a sentiment right away. That way, when I need a certain sentiment later on, I can choose a card & add the correct wording at that time. Saves me some stress! LolReplyCancel

  • Mary HolshouserJuly 27, 2015 - 10:01 am

    this is so elegant. Love the big bow.
    Wish I would have found this site at the beginning of the month.

  • Marlene IacuzziJuly 27, 2015 - 10:07 am

    I am usually a day late and a dollar short in even getting my cards made so the only left-overs I have are the early makes (usually so bad) or other failures. Some-times I try to recycle them.ReplyCancel

  • Diane M.July 27, 2015 - 10:09 am

    Another lovely creation, Becca! I make “one-of-kind” cards so I really don’t have very many left-overs. But the ones I do have, I keep in storage for a year for the spur of the moment need, or if the bundle is getting too large, I donate them to a local nursing home.ReplyCancel

  • Peggy BJuly 27, 2015 - 10:15 am

    What a wonderful card. Yours is the first blog I visit each morning. As for the extra cards I donate them. For several years I donated them to an organization that sent them to the troops. Now I look for places on line. Several organizations are still in need. I love donating.ReplyCancel

    Now, you know I’m going to love this card. Lace and ribbon! What could be better? But You’ve put it all together in such a gorgeous fashion. Love it!

    I do have lots of old cards. Some really ucky primitive stuff from back in the early days of my paper crafting years. What I have tried to do is repurpose those old cards by taking elements off of them and creating something new, something fresher. One thing I have learned from this process is, pay attention to the adhesive. When you go back to a card after a year and all of the elements are falling off, you have not created something that will last if the recipient wants to save the card.ReplyCancel

    Stunning card today. I only make cards for friends and family so just make what I need so no leftover cards. xReplyCancel

    VERY LOVELY CARD, BECCA. As I was reorganizing my office this summer I had forgotten I had leftover Christmas cards. I will make *new and more recent cards* for my *crafting friends* and send the leftover cards to the rest with the same Christmas letter. I am of the age it is time to down size stuff in our home and this is one of the things I need to do. However, I am still buying dies etc. to keep up with the newest and latest. Hope that makes sense.ReplyCancel

    Gorgeous dies used on this card; that bow is beautiful, too.
    I was making and giving my extra cards to OperationWriteHome for the military but they are ending this week. Sad; but, happy that our guys and gals are beginning to come home. Will be looking for another organization to make cards for; hopefully local.ReplyCancel

    Love the color combo on this card! Last Christmas I gave each of our four girls a 3-ring binder with a list of special dates in our family and at the back I included some pocket folders with an assortment of cards I had made. I keep a few on hand but have recently been plagued with a skin condition and haven’t been able to handcraft anything for a bit.ReplyCancel

  • Mary MacJuly 27, 2015 - 11:47 am

    Another magnificent feminine card Becca. Can you imagine the DELIGHT this card would bring to the friend? Of course with a different sentiment it would be just as enthralling to the recipient.
    I only make cards for family and friends for their Life Mile Stones and at holiday times etc. so I don’t have any leftovers. Occasionally I have made some to donate to specific charities but do not ‘gift’ them to family/friends, I’d be a tad embarrassed to do so!
    You are amazing Becca, I don’t know how you have ‘the calm’ to keep producing such beautiful cards.

  • Jan GavinJuly 27, 2015 - 12:05 pm

    Beautiful card Becca!!!!
    This is a really easy question to answer…I give swaps, scraps, prizes, extras, etc. to a lady in our church (she is also a card maker). She does any touch up necessary and sends to the shut-ins, sick, etc. (it is a BIG church so she is quite busy). A definite WIN WIN!!!

    Becca, this is really a pretty card. Love the tan and white. I usually don’t have left over cards. I do save some of my favorites just so I know how I did them. If I did have extra cards I think I would send them to our military forces to those who have no family and rarely gets anything. Always good to support our Military.ReplyCancel

  • JulieJuly 27, 2015 - 12:29 pm

    Love the colours in this card, Becca. Really unusual. I don’t really have leftover cards. I like to make them to suit the recipient. I just make for family and friends. Wish I had the time to make more, I am a busy farmer’s wife here in the UK.ReplyCancel

  • Jazmin AlvaradoJuly 27, 2015 - 12:40 pm

    Funny, I was make the amount of cards I need and then take pictures so I remember what I gave or did. I guess if I had extra, I’d probably save them for an unexpected card giving moment. There are always unexpected moments in life.

    I usually end up using my leftover cards. I give a few away to family and friends for their use. Sometimes I’ll keep a few. This 30 days of giving has been so fun and enlightening. Thanks so much. I’m still hoping to win one of your masterpieces!ReplyCancel

  • Karen M RothJuly 27, 2015 - 12:55 pm

    I have had a few that was selling on Listia. com for free credits but then I ended up too ill and in too intense physical pain to continue with my regular card making. I just wish I could afford to buy a Spellbinders machine as I just know that will makes things so much easier for me to craft then. It has been over two years since I have been a participant in a card making contest. I had a really bad experience with that one and it just really dampened my spirit. I can barely sign my own name without high pain in both hands, all fingers, wrists and elbows but I ALWAYS sign my handmade cards with a handwritten letter that at times has taken me 5 days to write one page.

    If I could get crafting again I would donate my cards to Abuse Shelters, maybe even create a multiple card All Occasions pack for my local bazaar along with a mini album and altered storage box for them all :-D

    I am loving this card so much especially the sweet Triple layered bow which is almost funny because I was just watching the tutorial on how to make these last night!ReplyCancel

  • Karen WeddingJuly 27, 2015 - 12:57 pm

    I love your bow on the card today. Very beautiful card too. I keep my leftover cards and if there aren’t any dates or specific names on them, I save them to reuse. I don’t ever want to throw away a handmade card.ReplyCancel

  • RonnyJuly 27, 2015 - 1:12 pm

    Love the lace on this card. Doesn’t look like it is available any more.
    I never have enough cards available. I get two or three ahead, but sometimes they don’t fit the person, so end up hurrying to do one for them. Like one person commented, its wise not to always put the sentiment on til you know where its going. And to the lady hoping to have more time when she retires, seems like when I quit working, 20 other things jumped in to take it’s place . Looking back, I don’t know how I found time to work!ReplyCancel

    Elegance is definitely a huge part of this lovely card. I love the contrast of neutral colors offset with the beautiful bow. Once again, it’s stunning.
    I only have a few leftover cards and I keep them as samples. The primary reason I don’t have a lot of cards is that i give them to the intended recipient and I also scrapbook. I didn’t begin creating cards until a couple years ago but I’ve been scrapbooking much longer. Health issues have a kept me from doing either for far too long but I’m optimistic this will change. God is faithful so I believe my body will heal. I’m so excited to return to card making and scrapbooking and have some projects planned to donate cards.

    What a pretty card…surely like that stamped background…makes the whole card just perfect. I’m really happy to hear you might be continuing this…this has really become my devotional practice this month…centered in gratitude…it has really grounded me and I’ve found myself wanting to slow down and not have the month end. I’m hoping you will have a day to focus on mentors along the way in the papercrafting journey. And if not…I will just include them in my own.

    What to do with extra cards…I donate them…there are so many places they can. Be used and I’m so happy to share them and see them on the way. I always send them off with s little prayer that they will brighten someone’s life a little…make a little difference somewhere…

    It has been so enriching reading others’ comments this month…what a blessing this has turned into, Ms Brcca. Look what you began! Thank you!ReplyCancel

  • NancyRJuly 27, 2015 - 1:54 pm

    I love this card! I don’t really have extra cards. I make some to sell and those I make for myself are specifically done for a certain person or holiday so nothing really left. I even have to “raid” my business inventory sometimes for something that comes up at the last minute, like a sympathy card or birthday.ReplyCancel

  • JessicaJuly 27, 2015 - 2:03 pm

    Since I make cards as I need them, I generally don’t have any left-overs. Sometimes I have more Christmas cards than I need. I usually just save them for the following Christmas.

    Gorgeous, gorgeous gorgeous!!!! I love this card. So pretty. Tried to find this Justrite Background stamp, but no one seems to have it. Not sure how I missed this one, cause I love justrite stamps.
    I vary rarely have excess cards. I tend to create one of a kind type cards with more of a personal touch as I need them. The only cards that I mass produce are my Christmas Cards and rarely have leftovers. But if I did, I would defintely donate them and I have been known to make sets of cards to donate to certain organizations.

    Fabulous card, love it all, so pretty. I am sorry to say I have boxes full of cards, I send some to family & friends andhave tried selling at craft fairs with no luck. I am now thinking of trying to sell them for Guide Dogs for the Blind. Its better to help a Charity rather than have them just sit there lol!

    Good Afternoon, Becca. What a “wonderful” card today. The sentiment is particularly “wonderful.” And as always, you tie the most “wonderful” bows, have the most “wonderful” color sense, and demonstrate the most “wonderful” use of Spellbinders dies! Thanks for sharing all of your “wonderfulness” with us. As to the question: I can barely keep up with the number of cards that I need to make for all the people I love in my family and friends list, so I really don’t have and special cards left over. I do take a lot of card classes and those I usually save and use as templates for making other cards.ReplyCancel

    Ohhhh my goodness gracious, I LOVE your cards! I just found you through pinterest, and I think I’m in heaven! You make the most elegant beautiful cards! I’m new to this hobby of paper crafting, (well…somewhat new, started in Feb) and I love doing it, but wow…I’m no where near as good as you are! Not to mention, I don’t have all the beautiful dies you do to work with…in fact I’m still trying to build my stash of dies, haven’t gotten to many yet, (and nothing to use as a background die like you have a lot of it appears) other than some flower making ones. I really need to work on getting some background ones now, like the doilies and stuff you use. Anyway, just wanted to say I’ve enjoyed looking at your blog and seeing your cards! Haven’t seen near all of them, but did go back several pages!

    As for your question of the day…I’ve not been at it long enough to have lots of extra cards yet, not sure what I’ll do with them once I do…I’ve been trying to figure that one out. I’d love to find some older people around who would like a card now and then, and send them a short note in one…but I’m not sure if I can come up with the addresses. I’m rather shy when it comes to getting out and meeting people…so getting a hold of older people’s addresses to send cards to would be kinda hard to do. LOL But…I’m not really THERE yet, so I’m sure I’ll come up with something to do with them, if and when I do get there. :-))

    Thanks again for the eye candy…I have really enjoyed drooling over your cards! :-))ReplyCancel

    Left over cards, I normally don’t have those. I do always try and keep one sample card for of most cards I make so I can go back and refresh on techniques that I loved to do!
    What a gorgeous card today!ReplyCancel

    If I have left over cards, I will (try to) sell them or when appropriate, use them for friends and family, and sometimes I also give them away.
    Love the colours in todays beautiful card Becca

    I have a box which I keep all my extra cards in so I’ve always got some on hand in an emergency. I have donated some to the Aussie troops before but stopped as I couldn’t get in contact with the person in charge. I would love to do that more but haven’t been able to find a good group to send them to.ReplyCancel

    Morning Becca, Ohhhhhhhhhh, I love this card, I love the combination of the taupe and pink, always a beautiful combo.
    I don’t have many leftover cards, I have a few that I am storing in readiness of our Church’s Christmas Fayre later in the year.
    Have a lovely day, we have had rain, rain and more rain, for the past three days, yuck !!!
    Lots of love from Patricia xxReplyCancel

    Today I am working on several ‘flip fold’ cards. I’m making several so I’ll be ready to complete the message when a need arises. Thank you for your beautiful cards and encouragement.ReplyCancel

  • Diann SandersonJuly 29, 2015 - 4:42 pm

    I would love to know how you made the bow on this card. Your bow video does not cover this one. P.S. I love your cards and will hate when the 30 days are up. ???ReplyCancel

  • Gretchen WilsonJuly 31, 2015 - 6:15 pm

    This one is a stunner, love the embossed background, the colors are so bold and elegant at the same time. That bow is to die for. I donate some of my cards to the Veterans Home, a few very special ones that I have made, I have saved and put in a flip binder to show and tell. I also have taken cards to the nursing homes for folks that never receive any cards.

    Hugs and God Bless,
