Day 29 – 30 Days of Giving

Cardmaking Ideas by Becca Feeken using Spellbinders A2 Tranquil Moments -
Well, we are in the final countdown to end of 30 Days of Giving – today is Day 29!  Over the month as I flipped through the stash to pull cards for the giveaways, I’ve kind of done a quick think back to figure out what types of cards I send out most often.  Hands down it is the friendship card – like the one for today.  I think that’s the case because I don’t have to have a special reason to send it.  Behind that, I would say most often I stamp Thank You Cards, Birthday Cards and finally Sympathy Cards.  Otherwise I send a card that has a purposeful quote on the front then use it for whatever occasion I want.

For today’s comment –  what type of card do you send most often?
If you’re new to the blog, welcome to my 30 Days of Giving – every day during the month of July I’m giving away a handmade card – you can read all the specifics HERE.  You can check to see if you’ve won a card by searching for your name on the Giveaway Winners page.  You get there by the menu at the top of the page – put your cursor on Features then look down the list and select Giveaway Winners.

    The most common card I send is Birthday cards, another beautiful card as always Becca. Christine SpringmanReplyCancel

  • Myra from FloridaJuly 29, 2015 - 7:28 am

    Without a doubt most of my cards are birthday wishes. But that’s why I love your cards so much. They are an art form on the outside and can be anything you need inside the card. Your cards are always worthy of a simple frame and sitting peacefully on the mantle. That’s where I see this card in my home, at least. ?ReplyCancel

    What a wonderful quote for this wonderful card. I love the beautiful die cuts. I send Thinking of You cards most often. I try to keep a lot of those on hand. I also send a lot of birthday cards but tend to make those with a specific person in mind.ReplyCancel

  • DalyceJuly 29, 2015 - 8:03 am

    Another beautiful card! I love the sentiment. You have inspired me. I would like to try and make a card every day for a month.
    The cards I sent most often are Birthday Cards. I have 12 children, most with spouses, 29 grandchildren, and lots of extended family and friends. So I am kept pretty busy with birthday cards.
    Thanks Becca, for this month of beauty and grace. It has be so delightful. I hate to see it coming to an end. I am so glad I found your blog.ReplyCancel

  • Juanita BraunJuly 29, 2015 - 8:05 am

    As always this card is so beautiful. I really get some good ideas on how to use my dies after seeing these beautiful cards you made. I mostly make birthday cards and if a friend is really sick I send thinking of you cards.ReplyCancel

  • Dar SirrineJuly 29, 2015 - 8:07 am

    I love this card. Of course I send a lot of birthday cards, but I really enjoy making “just because” cards to send out for encouragement or just friendship. It’s always a nice surprise to receive a homemade card made just for you for no special reason. I have enjoyed the last month of participating in the blog. It has been very inspirational for me to read all the comments.ReplyCancel

  • Janice BrummettJuly 29, 2015 - 8:09 am

    Love this card. Love the sentiment. Right now it’s “thinking of you” as I have a very dear friend and favorite cousin battling cancer so I am making cards for them weekly. The month of August & September we have family & friends birthdays 2 in every week. One day has 4 birthdays and 1 anniversary.ReplyCancel

    My most often made cards are birthday and sympathy. I ways like to have stash of each on hand — I don’t like making a sympathy card when I am sad. Your posted card is beautiful — I love the way you layer all your die cuts & top it off with a gorgeous

    Thanks Becca for sharing your beautiful cards with us. The cards I send most often are birthday cards with Christmas cards being the next ones sent most often –ReplyCancel

  • Christine Harrop, Oxfordshire, UKJuly 29, 2015 - 8:48 am

    Fabulous sentiment. I send masses of Christmas cards and I make then throughout the year. I also send lots of birthday cards. I like to keep some sympathy cards in hand because they are difficult to do when you are grieving, or even just feeling sad. I also like to make cards with a quote/sentiment as the focal point of the card and then I can finish off the inside when I want to send it to somebody. Hugs Christine xxReplyCancel

  • LisaPosthumaJuly 29, 2015 - 8:48 am

    Hands down I make and give away more Thinking of You cards than any other card. Several years ago my husband and I went thought a traumatic time that put us in a huge awkwardand unwanted spotlight. We received tons of verbal support from friends and family but by far what touched me the most was the tangibilitlity of the 2 cards we received from acquaintances. The fact that these people of whom we were familiar with took time to find an appropriate themed card and then wrote a few words, put it in an envelope and mailed it, touched me deeply. So now, when I have the opportunity, I do as I received and it feels so rewarding to be the person on the giving end.
    Have a lovely day!ReplyCancel

  • Niki WinchellJuly 29, 2015 - 8:48 am

    I think I send the most birthday cards.

    This is a beautiful card, thanks for sharing your talent.ReplyCancel

    What a beautiful sentiment on a gorgeously multi-layered card Becca! I mostly send out birthday cards, but also do anniversary, thank yous, sympathy and congratulations, whatever the occasion, I make a card.ReplyCancel

  • JudyBJuly 29, 2015 - 8:53 am

    Most of the cards I send tend to be birthday cards. But, I have sent a few thinking of you and sympathy cards. The quote on the front of your card is amazing, and so is the card.ReplyCancel

    I send more “Thinking of you” cards… Probably need to send more “friendship” cards…ReplyCancel

    Beautiful card Becca. Thank you for all the inspiration everyday this month. I sent lots of encouragement cards.ReplyCancel

  • Vicky SchmidtJuly 29, 2015 - 8:59 am

    Another beautiful card. I like the saying.

    I send out mostly birthday cards because I have a large family.
    Next is probably Christmas cards then anniversary cards.
    I need to start thinking of sending cards just because
    or thinking of you cards.ReplyCancel

  • ANN ROBBINSJuly 29, 2015 - 9:01 am

    Thirty days should passes quickly. What a momentous month you have made it for all your blog fans!! I guess I send more sympathy cards as I know so many people and feel that people need to know you care at this very vunerable time. I have a standard one which I usually make up 10 or so at a time.
    Today’s card is a beauty. You and pink seem to get along very well, Becca. Have a wonderful day.

    Hi Becca this journey has been so much fun-maybe a couple with some tears as I go back to remember some memories or moments. Thank you for making this journey such a pleasant one and of course to all we have won–CONGRATULATIONS!!! Lately I have been creating birthday cards. I think in overall probably the most popular ones among card making. Have a great day Becca and again thank you.ReplyCancel

  • Victoria LunaJuly 29, 2015 - 9:03 am

    My favorite cards to send are “Thank You” cards. It is very important to me to let people know how thankful I am for them and for what they do. When you go through a hard, challenging and scary experience your priorities change and you are more aware of the important things in life. And, I just want to make sure to let people know that.ReplyCancel

  • Peggy BJuly 29, 2015 - 9:06 am

    Another amazing card. I would have to say that Birthday is the card I send the most. I try to acknowledge everyone’s birthday. That is a day that I believe should be special to everyone and should be celebrated. I normally look at the calendar a month ahead to see how many I will need.ReplyCancel

  • Anita BraddockJuly 29, 2015 - 9:07 am

    I send Birthday cards more then others because we have so many Birthdays thanks for the chance to win.ReplyCancel

    Encouragings cards (hope i spell the word correctly) I want to give them a card with mostly Christians words to enncouragde them.. And style is very different. Depends on the person. I send a farmer a card with cool stuff on it and a lady a vintage romantic card. Thank you so much that you want to share youre cards with us… With love Tamara from HollandReplyCancel

    Such a gorgeous card; beautiful layers & lovely pink! I make & send more Christmas cards than any other, with birthday’s next. Then a fairly even smattering of thank you, anniversary & sympathy cards. I need to send out more friendship cards. I can’t believe it’s already Day 29!

    I tend to send ‘just because’ cards the most, closely followed by birthday, good luck, anniversary and Christmas cards. The ones I enjoy making the most are those that aren’t really planned. I like to start with a a blank sheet of card and see where my creativity takes me. I never make the same card twice though.ReplyCancel

  • Cheryl RotnemJuly 29, 2015 - 10:02 am

    Becca, so many beautiful cards you have made! Hope this last day I might win one! Well, I send all types of cards, but probably more birthday than anything else!ReplyCancel

  • ChelseaJuly 29, 2015 - 10:05 am

    Another pretty card, Becca. The colors and the layers really do showcase your friendship sentiment. It is just so pretty! Thank you for the inspiration!

    The kind of card I send most is the encouragement card. That is followed closely by get well and then by thank you. Of the holiday cards, I always send Christmas and Valentines, but that’s it. No Easter or other holidays. I’m not sure why that is….ReplyCancel

  • Jane BJuly 29, 2015 - 10:07 am

    Hi Becca, stunning card with a beautiful sentiment and of course a gorgeous bow ! I mostly make Birthday cards and thank you ones then at Christmas time I write a personal letter with it. It is not customary in Europe to send friendship cards,not even personal sympathy cards yet I always do and they really do appreciate it.
    Last day tomorrow, where has this month gone? Take care Jane B.ReplyCancel

    Mostly, I send cards in the “friendship\thinking of you” genre. Unfortunately, I have found myself sending more sympathy cards lately.ReplyCancel

  • Colleen HowellJuly 29, 2015 - 10:21 am

    Another pretty card. I send birthday the most, then I would say about the same on the others but baby would be last because at my age most of my friends and family have already went thru that stage. Most of my nieces and nephews are to young still or have not hit that step in their lives. Of course it is fun to send them for any reason I can think up.ReplyCancel

  • Sheetal ShahJuly 29, 2015 - 10:25 am

    thanks for sharing.ReplyCancel

  • NancyRJuly 29, 2015 - 10:27 am

    Oh I really hope that I win this card…..its my favorite! The sentiment has been one of my favs for a long time. I mostly sent birthday and sympathy cards. At my age they, unfortunately, seem to increase. I should actually send more “just because” cards but I don’t. Might be a task for me to work on. Thanks for the contest!ReplyCancel

  • Chris BakerJuly 29, 2015 - 10:27 am

    I would say that Birthday is my big make and send type of card. I would love to say that friendship is my big one but I have a good size family and only a few good friends (and the friends also have birthdays).ReplyCancel

    What a clever way to use that window 2 d’lite die…and what a beautiful card. I think I’ve somehow missed this stamp set from Suzanne…will have to go looking later! Love it!
    It is hard to pinpoint what I send most in terms of cards…it seems to go in cycles. Right now there are a lot of thank you cards. We have a lot of folks helping us make it through while I’m on wheels. I’m also sending out a lot of get well, inspiration/encouragement kinds of things…as well as sympathy right now, but again, those go in cycles.

    And now with some time to give thanks for all these people in my life, today’s question has brought me another round of thanksgiving…how sweet is that? Blessings for today, Becca…and thank you.ReplyCancel

  • Mary MacJuly 29, 2015 - 10:41 am

    That’s easy – in the last 12 months it has been BABY cards. Somehow the recession in our country seems to have brought about a baby boom – figure that out! No2: Birthday cards, No3: Congratulations (wedding, graduations etc.) No4/5: Thank you, and Sympathy cards. Finally a smattering of cards with encouraging quotes etc.
    Today’s card is so ‘YOU’ Becca! Apart from all the great layers, lovely sentiment and fabulous bow I love the gold edging on the first die cut layer. It all comes together to create a masterpiece. Mary xReplyCancel

    Another lovely card, Becca. I can’t really say which I send most in cards that I send. I do a lot of Birthday cards and almost always run out of sympathy cards and don’t get them made soon enough – we are that age, it seems. I so love how you put dies together and colors, soooooooooo uniqe!!ReplyCancel

    By far, I send the most birthday cards with sympathy cards and anniversary close behind.ReplyCancel

  • Peggy MJuly 29, 2015 - 11:11 am

    Becca my comment is not about your beautiful card(s), but about the design of your newly remodeled website. I just warned you to know that I truly love, Love, LOVE the new website. It is so pretty and just opening it to the first page brings a calming, comfortable, soothing sense of being. I often think that if it were possible to have a smell, it would be one of a bouquet of spring flowers!

    I truly appreciate it’s organization. Particularly the ease of finding past post categorized by finding a post by color, occasion, dies, etc. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve pulled out a die and knew you had used it on a card, then had to spend time trying to find which month and day you had posted a card with that die. Now, all I’ve got to do is look it up by the name of the die. You have taken the time to think of how user friendly you could make it for your followers.

    Again, thank you. I really appreciate it. It’s like going to a close friend’s house, enjoying her so much that you find you’ve stayed much longer than you had intended.ReplyCancel

    birthday and thank you cards are an even draw from my shelf. I like to take birthdays as an opportunity to share how their lives bless me. Thank you cards start as a way to cultivate a thankful spirit in me in the beginning. There have been numerous rewards from that plan.ReplyCancel

    I suppose I mostly send either Birthday card or just thinking of you cards. There are months that it’s one or the other.

    Birthday cards are the largest group of cards I make along with anniversary cards. But it seems lately that I’ve had to make and send sympathy cards. Losing so many friends and family. My husband is a retired school teacher and it is so sad when one of his former students pass away. I keep a calendar with birthdays and anniversaries of not only family but also of friends, including those from our church. I love making cards – just wish they were as beautiful as yours.

    For Family, it is Birthday, Thanksgiving and Christmas for friends and neighbors and complete strangers it is a simple “I am Thinking of you” Card.

    I am in the mind of thinking of making as many as I can of the “I am Thinking of you/Praying for you ” cards for the Battered Women’s Shelter as I am a surviving “Battered Spouse”. I want them to know in their hearts that they are very precious and that they do have the strength to go on and make a better life for themselves and their children. When My Past calls to me I simply tell Jesus it is for Him to answer. I am a Survivor in so many ways but it has never been by my own strength but by God’s ALONE.ReplyCancel

  • Noelene ApapJuly 29, 2015 - 1:47 pm

    I mostly make birthday cards. Kids cards are my favourite because I like to make them with the childs favourite theme in mind. Even the kids cherish them & know how special they are. You can do so many different things with birthday cards. Every card is made for that person in mind like likes, hobbies etc. Lately though I have had a lot of celebrations other than birthdays, like weddings & engagements. They have been fun to make as well.
    Your cards are always beautiful, still hoping I get a chance to win one lol xReplyCancel

  • Charlotte ZweigoronJuly 29, 2015 - 1:55 pm

    Lovely !!! I usually am sending a birthday card… The sentiment on your card brought me back to a question that a friend and I had been mulling over for some time. Why, how, when did we become best friends? After awhile the question wasn’t as important as the simple fact… we were best friends and had been, actually, for over 50 years. She passed away in early May and we’d had several long, wonderful visits while she was ill. In the interim, I was sending her weekly cards just to let her know how special our friendship was to me and how very much I loved and valued her.
    Her daughters told me she treasured them, showed them to everyone and kept the latest one propped on her night table where she could see it all the time. This craft has been a major blessing to me.ReplyCancel

  • MarilynYJuly 29, 2015 - 2:00 pm

    Of all the occasions and reasons for giving, Birthdays are the most popular. I send out about 5 each month and that’s not including the hand delivered ones. Who doesn’t like to be remembered on their special day?!! It gives me a fluttering in the heart to make someone happy.ReplyCancel

    I most often send birthday & thank you cards. I would like to thank you for blessing so many with your 30 Day of Giving cards. It has challenged me to mail more cards. Although, I would have loved to be one of the recipients, it has been a blessing to see a new masterpiece each day.

    Beautiful card. Do you write the quotes in calligraphy?

    I think the cards I most send out are just an in general “I’m thinking of you” or “Just a note”. Those are the kind that you can send anytime. It can have all types of quotes.

    I think I just like sending them because people really enjoy getting them.

    It’s sad that tomorrow is the last day of the giveaway. I wish everyone could receive a card from you as they are beautiful. Thank you.ReplyCancel

  • Kristine VencelJuly 29, 2015 - 2:40 pm

    Because I live in an adult community, the types of cards I send most frequently are:
    Thinking of You (also covers get well & friend. Don’t use get well as it usually does not apply out here.)
    And that is the order for the amount of those cards I send.ReplyCancel

  • AnnaJuly 29, 2015 - 4:26 pm

    What type of card do I send.
    That depends on who it is going to.
    To my mother I like to make and send colourful cards as they get displayed. So they add colour to her room.
    Men of course get cards that are darker colours and I try to get a them of what interests them on the card.
    The there is the wonderful easy female card. Once again I think of the person and try to make the card fit them.

    Becca, the card I make the most is Birthday Cards. I look for my month ahead and start making them early so I don’t leave someone behind. It is kind of a joke in my family as I usually send them a week ahead of time. The next cards I make a lot are Christmas Cards in which I am currently in process. Have a great day!ReplyCancel

  • Sandy HaysJuly 29, 2015 - 5:22 pm

    I send birthday cards more than any other type of card. I don’t send friendship cards… I should probably re-think that one. Especially after looking at all of your beautiful friendship cards this past month. You are so gifted!!!ReplyCancel

  • AlisonJuly 29, 2015 - 5:43 pm

    The type of card I make mostly are birthday cards for friends and family but I do get asked for Sympathy/Thinking of you ones too. Sometimes just cards with no sentiment on the front then they can be used for any eventReplyCancel

    Thankfully I send birthday cards most frequently, followed by thinking of you type, and recently, too many sympathy cards.
    Love this card Becca, that sentiment is fabulous.

  • lorrayne ingramJuly 29, 2015 - 5:53 pm

    I love the layers in this card. This year has been mostly birthday or get well, a few sympathy cards. I need to get going and start working on back to school cards. I guess I do make “thank you for business” cards. Worked on one last night to give with some jam, then forgot to bring the package this morning to closing. :) an excuse to visit afterwards. ..ReplyCancel

It’s how I let the people that are in my life know that I love them, appreciate them and am thinking of them. Now to call my friend.ReplyCancel

  • Sandy ArtmanJuly 29, 2015 - 7:55 pm

    Hi, Becca,
    This is the kind of card that invites one to sit and savor. I love the sentiment and the shape of the mat it’s stamped on. The beautiful bow, the jewels at the top and the gold edges…great card!

    The cards that I SEND most frequently are birthday cards but I MAKE “Thinking of You” cards more often for others. When people are going through tough times ~ love, prayerful thoughts and beauty are gifts we hope will bring light into those dark places. It feeds my heart to know this about my craft.


  • Sarah M.July 29, 2015 - 7:57 pm

    Oh! This card is so lovely. Thee beautiful pink bow is enough to catch my eye but the sentiment is beautiful too.
    I think i send birthday and thinking of you cards. I try to remember all birthdays of those important to me and I especially love letting someone know I’m thinking of them. My card might say hello or another sentiment but the feeling is to let someone know I’m thinking of them. You just never know when a simple card is something someone needs.ReplyCancel

I love both and found QuietFire through you… :) And those beautiful ribbons you use with the amazing bows, oh my! I bought your bow-maker, just need to spend some time playing with it and buy some ribbon worth using on it… :) Thank you for your products you bring to us, how I appreciate them and I have so many of them too. Not all of your stamp sets but a lot…

    My main goal is to encourage with my cards, but somehow most of my cards are birthday cards. I’d like to make a whole lot more cards, and if I could, they would be encouraging in nature.

    Thank you again for this wonderful 30 days of giving.

    I love the Spellbinder dies and it is great that when you use them you have a link to that actual die,it is because of that that I have bought dies that I would have overlooked before because I didn’t realize how nice they were till I saw them used.

    Hello Becca have missed seeing anything on your site. I hope that you are well. When I don’t hear or see someone in a while I like to send a note to hope to find them well.
    I took my card to the shop last night Boy did the other ladies gush over it and really love it. They asked who I was going to give it to and I told them MYSELF. I am seriously thinking of putting it in a shadow box.
    Hugs for youReplyCancel
