Hi there friends, where has the week gone?  Yes, it’s Friday again and somehow it sneaks up and surprises me every single week.  Today is Day of Giving Friday and this card is my giveaway for today.  Speaking of today, I’ll keep it short because I’m actually on a making spree, a craft marathon and know that when you’re on a roll, sometimes it’s best to keep rolling!

The inspiration for my card today is a circle.  This is my creed and I loved it enough that I included it in a stamp set I designed some years ago and dug through my stash to find it.  In helping others, we shall help ourselves.  Whatever good we give out completes the circle.  I cut the sentiment out with Spellbinders Standard Circles LG.  I embossed two panels Spellbinders Floral Embossing Folder and cut one edge of each panel with Spellbinders A2 Bracket Borders One.  Once again I printed digital paper (edited with Photoshop) onto vellum because I love the muted look.

    Today is my birthday and I am at peace – remarkable, but knowing my beloved husband is with the Lord and someday I will join him brings me joy. We were married over 32 years when he died 2 nights ago, October 26th, after a long illness. Jim was a kind, compassionate, and generous man – was loved by all who knew him…your sentiment is sooooo true Becca. Thank you for sharing it.
    Paper Hugs,

    • Becca FeekenOctober 28, 2016 - 3:18 pm

  • Karen M. RothOctober 28, 2016 - 4:16 pm

    What makes me Happy Today: That I have been able to Spend the entire day with My Lord and Savior Jesus Christ in spite of all the pain I am in :). “Love Wins Every Time” even in the “Eye of the Storm”.

    Becca, This card is so lovely and beautifully timed. Thank You so Much! I will admit it, I am having a pity party as I just found out that I have 2 Bulging Discs pushing on my Spinal Cord and Arthritic Bone Deformities moderately Blocking 2 nerve Roots. untreated Psoriatic Arthritis with Spondylitis is to blame all because the doctor who was seeing me refused to give me the antibiotic I have needed now for over two full years but I have forgiven her and even wrote her a letter blessing her new position she accepted. Now I am without a Doctor in the meantime and cannot see the new Rheumatologist until the first of the year. I am having to have more testing done on my left Breast. I cannot get into the Pain Management Specialist until December. I am trying to Prepare for the Fall Bazaar and I have not been able to even make anything due to the pain. I just found out that a new Friend is in treatment for Colon Cancer. I am so far in Debt that I cannot pay my bills and I cannot work but I am trying. I am brokenhearted because I have not heard from my only brother since Christmas 2015 and my Family has turned away from God.My Children want nothing to do with me due to the lies of others and misunderstandings and the poor choices of others. I have just applied for In-home care for myself. I am only 44. All I can say is without pride or gloating but with a true sadness,” Satan, I know your Future. God has a Good Plan for my Life.” Whether I live to see it come to fruition or not I know not , but I know it is Good and God is a “Good,Good Father” and I love Him. But–There is Great news– I Forgave my own earthly father after many many years of abuse. Sadly, he is in a nursing home thousands of miles away with Dementia and I did not find out until last year. I cannot even travel to see him due to my own Disabilities and Lack of Finances. What breaks my heart is that he has no visitors at all. I promised him I would call him again and have canvasses made of pictures my husband took of some of the places we have been to and live to replace the crappy view out of his only window of two slanted roofs with a miserable spindly tree in between them and the blank walls but I cannot afford it and I am so ashamed because it is all due to my Shopping Addiction trying to numb the pain in my life so I have not called him back. So please pray for me,too.ReplyCancel

    • Chelsea JohnsonOctober 29, 2016 - 12:53 pm

      Karen, I pray the Lord will bring you joy today. There is much pain and suffering in life, isn’t there. But I am thankful you are spending the day with your best Friend, the Lord Jesus Christ. That is bound to make your day better!! God bless you as you live for Him!ReplyCancel

    Good afternoon Becca. I love the colors and sentiment on today’s card. The use of the circle for a focal point is fantastic. My sympathy goes out to Jan for the loss of her husband. I wish her comfort and memories to help her through her difficult time. I am happily working today on thank you cards for friends that so generously helped me celebrate my 70th birthday a month early during a weekend of three parties! Not only were the parties and getting together with friends fantastic, but crafting cards of thanks allows me to relive the experiences all over again. I am extremely fortunate to have such good friends and a great brother and sister in law.ReplyCancel

  • Joy MossOctober 28, 2016 - 5:34 pm

    Hi Becca…I love the way pink flows throughout the card yet is not overly pink! Also, I like how you embossed white card stock and then cut it apart with the Brackets dies. Again,something new I learned today from you. What made me happy today was the long walk I took with my grandchild. We are fortunate to have a pram that I love to push him in and so we took a very long time. He’s only three months old but loved looking at the change of colors in the leaves.ReplyCancel

    Dear, dear, Becca,
    Thank you so much for sharing this wonderful sentiment. It is so true. I had just read an email from a dear friend of mine reaching out to his faith and choral communities for prayer and support while he faces serious health concerns. I was reflecting on the truth that it is in blessing others that we are blessed. Your card punctuates that idea so beautifully. I just love this lovely flower emerging from that center and the ribbons look like they are radiating goodness out to the world. An Amazing Paper Grace, for sure!
    Love and Blessings, SandyReplyCancel

Since I am writing this in the evening and my happy came earlier today, I will say what made me happy was unexpected warm weather, Carolina Blue sky with a light wind.

    It makes me happy to see all the kind and comforting comments from fellow Christians. Your card is beautiful Becca. I love the vintage look… and of course I admire your ability to make beautiful bows.

    Jan, I’m so sorry for your loss. I lost my mother last month so I know she and Jim are now walking the streets of gold. Your memories of the laughter and love you shared with Jim will always be remembered. When you lose someone very precious, no one else can really know all that you feel . . . but knowing his pain and suffering are gone and he is with the our Heavenly Father will give you comfort.
    May God give you strength and fill you with the assurance of
    His love in dealing with your loss.

    Beautiful card! The sentiment touches me personally. Let’s see–what makes me happy? I woke up this morning, able to get out of bed, able to see and walk. My mind was/is working. Yes, I have health issues–not as bad as others and yet worse than others. One son has financial problems, and other son’s baby daughter had a medical emergency this past week. She is better now–Thank You Lord! All we have to do is just look around us and we can find someone worse off than we are. Me, I just happy to be alive!ReplyCancel

    Becca this is another beautiful card and I love the words, can I ask permission to reuse these via my computer please?
    I also would like to send condolences to Jan, my dear friend Tina also lost her husband just two weeks ago & I know both Jan & Tina are among others who are now heartbroken but given time hopefully they will find peace and they have good memories to help them through this difficult time.
    I am happy because I still have my wonderful husband but as someone else has mentioned we must enjoy each day together as we don’t know when we will be parted.

    I would like to suggest that you send this card to Jan as I feel this might help her at this time.
    Thank you Becca for the lovely card & ideas, printing onto velum, cutting an embossed card with border die. I will be trying these.

    Hi Becca! Another beautiful card. Aren’t they all!!
    I am blessed to be on holiday in beautiful Madeira with my husband. It is a beautiful morning – sunny, but not scorching hot and we are outside our room, in a beautiful verdant garden bordered by roses in bloom, bird of paradise flowers and palm trees, gazing out over the ocean. We are both sporting right foot injuries – a broken toe (me) and my husband a severe infection in his big toe after separate accidents. Neither of us can get shoes on our right foot and it is quite hilarious seeing the pair of us go down to dinner in a left shoe and a flip flop each – looking like members of some weird sect or secret society :o). It is a pity that we are unable to explore the island due to our enforced immobility, but we can bask in the beauty of God’s creative genius right outside our room!

    Wow! Your card today is breathtaking! I love the layers, colors, circle sentiment, flower, ribbon and everything about it. You continue to inspire with your creativity. Blessings to you, Becca.

    Jan, I am so sorry for your loss. I cannot imagine how you are coping but knowing you are a woman of faith made me happy today. While you are suffering through a terrible loss, knowing you will see your beloved husband again is a true blessing. I will be praying for you and your family.ReplyCancel

  • Myra hutchinsOctober 29, 2016 - 9:02 am

    Becca, I’m sure the consensus would be that Jan deserves this card this week. So if by any chance I win, I would want it sent to her. I’m in an age group where I’m hearing this all too often. Boy, sickness and age really hits us hard as we, uh, age. Yuck. I’m getting to not like that word. My heart goes out to every lady here who has lost a spouse. My prayers, too, of course.
