Card Making Ideas by Becca Feeken using Quietfire Design - You May Not Be Able to Leave Your Children,  Spellbinders Fleur de Lis Squares, Spellbinders Lacey Squares -
Good morning sweet friends!  A short post today and a card to give away.  I hope you’ve had a wonderful week.  Today finds me very quiet after having a couple of down days being sick.  Thank goodness it didn’t last long because I’m working on new things in the background and need to play a little catch up here :-)

Sometimes people ask if I make simple cards – yep, this is it!  Just two dies and lots of fiber.  I used Spellbinders Fleur de Lis Squares and on top stacked Spellbinders Lacey Squares.  This is a classic anchor in my stash and you can see similar samples HERE.  I used a beautiful sentiment from Quietfire Design – lovely for a card but I hold the hope that I’ll one day design a scrapbook page with these profound words :-)

    Hi Becca,

    Lovely to read another post from you I do hope the sickness has now gone.

    Stunning creation and I do love the sentiment, so true. What’s on my mind…Mmmm I need to find another job lol! I have really had enough of the job I am in but my age is against me getting anything else even though I still have 10 years before I retire!!! Oh to find a job doing something I love lol!

    Have a great day

    Love & hUgs

    Excited to get an early start on the weekend. Heading to a Beth Moore conference and a granddaughter’s birthday celebration!ReplyCancel

  • Kristine VencelJune 10, 2016 - 10:47 am

    Good morning, Becca! Sorry to hear you were ill, but very glad to hear you are now feeling better.

    This is a lovely card, as always. I adore all the textures! Definitely my style. ?

    Today I am thinking of & planning out how to finish all the chores I have left on my plate. Had some work done in my home, which of course is nice to have completed. But it does leave unfinished items which will bug me until I finish them! So that’s what is on my mind this lovely morning.

    Have a wonderful day, Becca!ReplyCancel

  • Jan CastleJune 10, 2016 - 10:52 am

    Becca, your card is DELIGHTFUL with just the right sentiment to provoke thought and to make us want to improve!
    Happy to hear you are taking it easy after being sick…prayers that you are definitely on your way to full recovery as you are one busy lady.
    Thank you for always being an inspiration….and for making us think about what we are doing and feeling.
    Today, I am thinking about making a special card for a dear friend who just lost her husband of 60+ years of marriage…already mailed a sympathy card. She is in town for a second Memorial service as her husband pastored our church for a number of years, then was Associate Pastor (after he retired) well into his 80’s. Will get to have lunch with her while she is here on Monday and want a special card – just for her.
    Paper Hugs,

    Your work is beautiful and inspiring. Glad I found you on Pinterest.ReplyCancel

  • Ruth ArmstrongJune 10, 2016 - 10:55 am

    First and foremost I hope you are feeling better and back to 100% soon! Your card is stunning! Love all the textures. Too many thing on my mind to list at the moment. Just popping in to read my favorite blogs and getting ready to do some fussy cutting. Loves to you Becca! RuthieReplyCancel

    today is kind of sad for me. a friend’s mom passed and as I think of her I also think of my mom’s passing.ReplyCancel

    • ChristineJune 11, 2016 - 9:42 am

      Sorry to hear about your friend mother passing, I know how you feel. Yesterday a friend of our, daughter passed and it took me back 2 years ago when I lost my son.ReplyCancel

  • SuzzieQJune 10, 2016 - 11:14 am

    Lovely card with a great sentiment. So sorry to learn you have been ill. So glad you are feeling somewhat better. Wishing you a complete recovery soon. Today on my mind is getting my snacks ready to take to my card making class tomorrow. Each six months, the class celebrates all birthdays in the year up to that point. Besides making a couple of cards, we will party! Lots of fun.ReplyCancel

  • Sherry LowmasterJune 10, 2016 - 11:16 am

    Good morning or rather good afternoon! such a gorgeous card and i never would have thought to put those two dies together! just sitting here going thru email and thinking I really have to get off the computer, lol and get some work done!!ReplyCancel

  • Dianna WilsonJune 10, 2016 - 11:27 am

    Good Afternoon Becca; I hope you are feeling much better. I’ve always loved your work but I’ve never commented. I’m always talking to you through my laptop. What’s on my mind? My dining room table is my work space. I need to stop all crafting and de-clutter because for everything I remove, I add more before table is clean. Hopefully, this will be my weekend “job”. Enjoy the rest of you day.ReplyCancel

  • RaquelJune 10, 2016 - 11:28 am

    Oh Becca what a wonderful question: What is on your mind. At this time I have to say my son and daughter in law have been trying to get pregnant-my daughter in law has gone thru so much-and yet she has so much faith and after 7 years of struggle-they are pregnant-with TWINS. My daughter in law is such a beautiful-caring and loving young lady. She has been having some severe morning sickness and of course some bleeding. She is in her 11th week and those precious little babies are holding on. They are growing but there is still the danger of a miscarriage. So my dear friend my mind has been filled with happiness but some worry. Praying that they do survive and that she can carry them to full term if God wants. Keep her and those precious tiny babies in your prayers. Have a wonderful and blessed weekend. RaquelReplyCancel

    • KathyJune 10, 2016 - 8:55 pm

      Prayers uplifted…don’t want the lather to happen as we lost our twin grandsons at 5 months, but I know someday I’ll have them in my arms…ReplyCancel

      • ChristineJune 11, 2016 - 9:49 am

        My prayers are with her and the babies.

      • RaquelJune 17, 2016 - 3:33 pm

        Thank you so much Kathy for your prayers. You will have your precious Grandsons one day in your arms. They are little angels taking care of you and all who grieve or worry.

    • Londe SmithJune 13, 2016 - 8:48 pm

      I don’t know you but I prayed for you and your sweet DIL and son. Those little boogers are going to hold on and they will be ok! Congratulations. What a struggle they have been through.ReplyCancel

      • RaquelJune 17, 2016 - 3:36 pm

        Thank you Londe for your words and your prayers. As of yesterday they are doing well and growing but as my son said there is still some danger. I will share your words along with Christine and Kathy-this means so much. Take care.

    • RaquelJune 17, 2016 - 3:40 pm

      Christine thank you for your prayers. I appreciate your thoughts and care. Take care.ReplyCancel

  • RaquelJune 10, 2016 - 11:32 am

    I am so sorry Becca I failed to say what a beautiful and card and the words are just as beautiful. I hope you get to feeling better-we are in the season to be outdoors enjoying the beauty of flowers-green trees and lawns and children enjoying their time with fun. Take care.ReplyCancel

  • Judy InukaiJune 10, 2016 - 11:35 am

    What a beautiful card and a wonderful sentiment. I really like how the Lacey Squares and Fleur de Lis squares work together – never thought of those two together. What’s on my mind is redoing my craft room. I had to empty part of it out so the cable guy could get to the TV, now I’m trying to decide how I want it rearranged. I have a chair I want to move out, but it will involve emptying and moving a bookcase and it just snowballs from there.ReplyCancel

  • Judy SutherlandJune 10, 2016 - 11:38 am

    It would be wonderful to win this beautiful card especially on a day when I’m dealing with a son in full blown mania and the news that a dear friend just received a horrible diagnosis.ReplyCancel

    • Joanne LoweJune 10, 2016 - 1:01 pm

      Praying for you, Judy, for your son, and for your dear friend. I am so sorry. May God encourage you. I hope you don’t mind that I left this note…ReplyCancel

  • Anne MushensJune 10, 2016 - 11:47 am

    Am covered in goosebumps looking at this card! It’s soooo beautiful!
    So sorry to hear you’ve ben poorly and hope you’re able to catch up now.
    On my mind….? A younger friend in the final stages of Motor Neurone Disease – and her family. Such a terrible disease.

  • Denise BryantJune 10, 2016 - 11:48 am

    Gorgeous card! Love all the layers and details!
    What’s on my mind…. house cleaning! I brought home many things after my Mom’s death and need to figure out where they will go. Pictures and a curio cabinet to hang, etc. Have not had the heart to do it yet, but I am ready now.ReplyCancel

  • MildredJune 10, 2016 - 11:50 am

    Another lovely card, Becca. Glad you are feeling better. Pace yourself, please. What’s on my mind: the weather which plunged from 90 to 60 overnight; drawers to clean out; likewise closet; craft room to reorganize so I can use it! My mind is on overdrive.ReplyCancel

  • Nancy DalyJune 10, 2016 - 11:52 am

    A gorgeous card Becca would love to win it, sorry to hear you were a bit under the weather but glad a bit better now. Got someone coming on Sunday to quote for a window in my garage so that’s what on my mind at the moment.

  • JoAnn BurnhamJune 10, 2016 - 11:56 am

    Beautiful card. Love that sentiment. What’s on my mind? I had ankle surgery in May and recuperating. I finally got rid of that big black boot I had to wear when I saw the doctor and I am making cards again. I thank God for being with me during my surgery and recovery. I have had a lot of help from family and friends, and a lot of prayers. I am very thankful today.ReplyCancel

  • Judy BennettJune 10, 2016 - 11:58 am

    Another stunning card! So glad you’re feeling better Becca.

    Today I’m trying to decide whether to clean my craft room today, or put it off until tomorrow. I need someone to come behind me and clean up my craft mess every day!!ReplyCancel

  • DebraJune 10, 2016 - 12:00 pm

    Sorry to hear you were ill but glad you are feeling better.
    I am feeling grateful and happy today as my son just had his grad ceremony last night. He is thrilled and it was wonderful to see all the kids dressed up!ReplyCancel

    Hello Becca
    Love the Sentiment and the card is beautiful as always!

  • VickyJune 10, 2016 - 12:07 pm

    Ok so I’m normally so intimidated by your cards that I would never try and duplicate them. Well here goes, what adhesive was used in the fibers and paper? I’m going to try this.ReplyCancel

  • rai guidoneJune 10, 2016 - 12:20 pm

    Can’t wait for the day when I can focus on my crafts. For now I just admire your cards.ReplyCancel

  • Clare WJune 10, 2016 - 12:21 pm

    Hi Becca. Sorry to hear you have been poorly. Glad you are better now. I’ve been suffering with bad hay fever this week as the pollen count here has been very high. Love your card. You call it simple but it doesn’t look it! It’s lovely. What’s on my mind? All my things on my To Do list. Just as I clear one action another 2 gets added on! I think I am winning after hitting my list today. I am planning a crafty day tomorrow starting with some craft shopping and a demo before getting in my craft room to play. I made my first gift bag using your die a few days ago and I was very pleased with it. Think it will be a fave die that sits on my desk as it will be in frequent use. Happy weekend.ReplyCancel

  • AliceJune 10, 2016 - 12:24 pm

    Beautiful work as always. Glad UR feeling better.ReplyCancel

  • ConnieJune 10, 2016 - 12:24 pm

    Good morning, Becca. What you call a simple card is certainly different than most definitions, but I love it just the same. And this is one of my favorite Quietfire sayings as well and I use it for comfort on some occasions for sympathy cards. My thoughts today are on plans around my 70th birthday party and all the joy it will hold. It is three months away and will not be on my actual birthday so that guests can travel safely to help celebrate. I was thinking today–life is good when you have friends and family to help with the journey.ReplyCancel

  • MaureenJune 10, 2016 - 12:28 pm

    Thought for the day: Keep Becca in prayers that she, who, while feeling ill, still took the time to care about all of us and continue her Day of Giving, will soon feel well again.
    We have been truly blessed to call this amazing lady our friend. Thank you, Becca!ReplyCancel

  • Yoshiko GlennJune 10, 2016 - 12:37 pm

    What is on my mind is the dear, sweet, young man who recently passed away. We have known him since he was 5 years old and started school with our son. He and our two sons shared a house together before his passing. We love and miss him. Beautiful card and sentiment.ReplyCancel

  • Doreen RitchieJune 10, 2016 - 1:00 pm

    Absolutely gorgeous card once again – truly beautiful. Sorry to hear you’ve been poorly but glad you are feeling better. On my mind is pure joy that my husband has arrived home a week earlier than expected, after being away, sailing across the Atlantic Ocean for a month. The things I was going to do this week while he was away can happily wait!

  • Maureen KJune 10, 2016 - 1:22 pm

    Hello Becca,
    What a gorgeous card today with the most lovely sentiment.
    On my mind today is the rain forecast for Sunday when the local Street Party for the Queen’s 90th Birthday Celebrations will be in full swing. We will bite the bullet, show our stiff upper lip, make sure all the children have a great time, and raise lots of money for charity into the bargain!!!

  • MarilynYJune 10, 2016 - 2:06 pm

    Your cards are always an inspiration for me to not give up this card making hobby. I know that my cards are starting to look more ‘professional’ (at least that’s what my gfs say) and elegant….thanks to you. What’s on my mind today is to set up a plan for the two weeks my grandchildren will be spending their summer vacation with us. They always are so excited to come here and we thrill at the thought of spending this time with them. We don’t see them often so we try to max out all the time with craft projects, hikes, swimming, camping in the back yard and biking. Of course, at the end of this vacation we are exhausted but the memories made are worth every ounce of tiredness.ReplyCancel

  • Wanda ThomasJune 10, 2016 - 2:06 pm

    My mind is a blank canvas today. Just soaking everything in….
    I love that Fleur de Lis die too. It makes a great layer cut design as well (where the cut out parts stay and another paper weight layer is on top).ReplyCancel

  • Patti J.June 10, 2016 - 2:09 pm

    Hello! Becca, your card is gorgeous, as always! Glad you’re feeling better – it’s no fun at all to feel sick. Ironically, what’s on my mind is my daughter. She’s a military wife and has a two year old, and a 5 week old, and they are preparing for a military move. Their household goods have been picked up and shipped off, and the toddler is feeling out of sorts. None of her toys, her own bed gone, and all the other confusion of this move has our daughter feeling like she’s ‘not a good mom’. When I read your sentiment, I thought that’s what she needs to hear! Thanks for the inspiration :)ReplyCancel

  • Yvonne NicholsonJune 10, 2016 - 2:09 pm

    What a lovely card. Sorry to hear you were under the weather, glad you are feeling better.On my mind is getting ready for my daughters wedding on Sunday, and hoping the weather is going to be fine as its a outdoor wedding.Hugs.ReplyCancel

  • Joanne LoweJune 10, 2016 - 2:20 pm

    This card is STUNNING!!! Love your “simple card”. I’m wondering how you made that gorgeous jeweled embellishment, the petals around the gem. If you made it, I hope you can show us how you did it.

    Love the sentiment, you introduced me to Quiet Fire and I have placed a few orders over the years. Thank you!!!

    Praying for you that you will be feeling your usual healthy self very soon. How I appreciate your cards and all you have taught me by your cards and your tutorials, plus all of your dies and stamps and other products. It feels like you’re in my head, creating products I love so much.ReplyCancel

  • Sandy ArtmanJune 10, 2016 - 2:56 pm

    Hi, Becca,
    So glad to hear you’re feeling better. Perhaps some restful, quiet time is just what the doctor ordered to give you what you need to move into the productive time ahead.

    Along those lines, my two choral groups are heading into our summer hiatus. I am ready to recharge and look forward to what the summer holds in store. My twin sister is coming for a visit and I will take some vacation time while she is here – can’t wait!

    Love and blessings,

    Oh, what a gorgeous card and the saying! Priceless!
    I’m thanking our wonderful Lord today for keeping my car, thus me safe! I’m on a trip soon and had my oil changed. While there, they found a very serious problem with the tires.
    my hubby’s been ill so finances are tight. God made it happen and my car is safe! Bonus: I met a lovely woman there who will be a friend!!! Thus, I’ve been blessed!!!ReplyCancel

  • BunnyJune 10, 2016 - 3:42 pm

    Beautiful sentiment and card.

    On my mind is another vehicle. The battery conked out today and we were 45 minutes from home. A rare day off for my spouse. The vehicle is getting old but fortunately my spouse was with me.ReplyCancel

  • Barbara GJune 10, 2016 - 3:48 pm

    Lovely card as always. I have been to a sewing/embroidery class for 2 days and now trying to come back down to earth. So many designs flitting through my mind and trying to decide which one I want to do first! :)

    Sorry you have been sick and hope you are feeling so much better.

  • Jennie BaileyJune 10, 2016 - 3:51 pm

    What gorgeous sentiment this is and by our actions it will come true.

    What’s on my mind is that if a Golden Wedding card I have just made for a special friend will be good enough. Just some self doubt today.

  • Bette SJune 10, 2016 - 4:49 pm

    Today I’m thinking of our grandson,Lukas. He and his girlfriend went to the court house to get their marriage license. He is the first of our 5 grandchildren to marry and we are so looking forward to it. Just seems like yesterday he was a little boy playing baseball and soccer. Actually, it just seems like yesterday when my man and I went to the court house to get our license! But I guess that was 53 years ago!! My how time flies!!ReplyCancel

  • Patsy EcclesJune 10, 2016 - 5:55 pm

    Just looking at your card I realized that what is on my mind is how nice fibers added to a project look. Something about lace or canvass or material added to a card or project just make you feel more connected to the artist or maker. The material seems to carry the energy of the person who used or touched it, with it. Sure makes me feel special! Thank you for such a warm, personal, intimate idea to add to my cards..ReplyCancel

    Gorgeous card. You take care and rest, hun {{{hugz}}}

    What is on my mind: What will they find when I have my ultrasound on my rib cage the 15th (one doctor thinks it is just Lipomas in the spaces between the rib bones with one large one wrapping around my right side) and what will they find in my Left Hip on the MRI on 7-8-2016. The last MRI I had they thought it was either Giant Cell Tumor or a Rare Cancer called Chondroblastoma.

    But as scared as I am– I am trusting God either way.

    I do have a request though, I want to be put on every prayer chain list across the world, please. My Husband needs me. Please pray that his vision would be restored as well. This is war and I do battle on my knees with the Word of God. I am asking for Prayer Warriors to join me.ReplyCancel

    What a pretty card and the lace just adds a perfect touch. What’s on my mind? Sadness (lost two friends in two days), working on organizing my craft room, trying to reach my “long arm quilter” to quilt my grandson’s quilt, so, so many things. But most of all, I am so thankful for family, friends, and the many blessings I haveReplyCancel

    Beautiful sentiment and card. How did you get the swirls of pearls on? I find it very difficult to get them on and still keep the pattern. What’s on my mind… many things. I thought when I retired I would be up to date on everything but I find I am further behind than ever. I have been really thinking about it.ReplyCancel

    Beautiful card and a wonderful text, which i have copied into my ‘thoughts to treasure book’. There are quite a few from you in it.

    My daughter in law and son are weighing heavy on my mind. She has breast cancer only diagnosed in March and already it has spread to her bones…… They have put her into early menopause and are switching off her ovaries so there dreams of a family are dashed too.
    This week i can’t see beyond the blackness of it all…..much prayer needed please.ReplyCancel

    You always inspired and today is no different with this stunning card with a lovely sentiment. Happy to hear you are feeling better. I will be praying for your full recovery.
    On my mind is mu hubby, Gene. We are getting ready to head to Minnesota so he can have a specialized open heart surgery at Mayo. It’s a surgery that is done only at specific hospitals. I’m so thankful there is a surgery to help him but it’s scary to think of him going through this. Prayers are much appreciated! Surgery is June 22 but we are going early to spend time with my daughter who lives there.ReplyCancel

    Simply, you are inspiring! What’s on my mind? Sadness for my brothers & sisters. When mom died they took whatever they wanted. I now forgive them but won’t forget. My life is much more serene without their drama!ReplyCancel

    Gratitude is on my mind today and every day. I am grateful for the feeling of having “enough. We are not independently wealthy from a financial standpoint, but we do have a comfortable life. Sure there are things we’d like to change, and one day will, however, right here, right now we have enough. And for this I give thanks!!ReplyCancel

    Hi Becca, Here’s hoping you are feeling much better now.
    This card is gorgeous !! and the sentiment is very profound, I love it. I love the lace too, it adds a pretty ‘elegance’ to your card.
    What’s on my mind – the lack of time for the amount of tasks that I need to do !!
    Lots of love from Patricia xxReplyCancel

    On my mind today is relieving my husband of summer project of stripping off the old stain on our deck. He is older and has taken on a job too much for him, but you know how some men are. I know the signs when he is fatigued and his back is hurting so it is time for me to step in and say I am through doing what I wanted today so what can I do for you. He doesn’t want to bother me with his summer project but at the same time it is better to know when to take over. We have been married 48 yrs. for better or worse and we do it together. Amen to that.Becca the sentiment on this card is wonderful and so true. Thank you.ReplyCancel

    So sorry you have been sick. What is on my mind now? Well my daughter (Special needs) had surgery last Tuesday and came through in stellar manner. On returning home from hospital Wednesday, received a call Wed. evening that my sister in Ohio had fallen and broke her hip. So the two of them are on my mind and my prayers.
    Today’s card is beautiful as always. My favorite day of the week is Friday when your day of giving card is shown. I never miss it.
