Day of Giving Friday: You are a Blessing

Anytime Card Making Ideas by Becca Feeken using Spellbinders Majestic Labels Twenty Five, Spellbinders Lacey Ovals, Spellbinders Classic Ovals SM see full linked supply list at
Good morning and Happy (Day of Giving) Friday.  I love giving no occasion cards and thankfully this supports all the justifications I have for card making.  Let’s face it, there’s a gap from one holiday to the next so this is what fills in the cracks and puts the responsible facade on the front of some of my collecting habits :-). Seriously though, of all the cards given, holiday cards seem to be anticipated, while that ‘no occasion’, ‘just because’ card is simply a spontaneous surprise and likely at the time that it is needed the most.  My thought for you today is to never doubt your own kindness.  It is not frivolous and you can never measure how much you have lifted someone at their darkest moment.  Today I’m sharing a simple blessing card.  I duplicated this card many times to send out to friends and I’m letting my last one go…

    I do mostly thank you cards!ReplyCancel

  • Marcie SmithJuly 29, 2016 - 9:40 am

    Beautiful card Becca. I love sending the people I care about a card just to let them know I am thinking about them. It doesn’t have to be just for a special occasion. So I definitely send more anytime cards by far then I do Holiday cards. This is why I love your blog. You always find such wonderful sentiment stamps and such wonderful and unique card designs. You are such an inspiration to us all Becca.ReplyCancel

  • Penny GJuly 29, 2016 - 9:45 am

    Once again a beautiful card! Love to make Birthday cards!ReplyCancel

  • Judy BennettJuly 29, 2016 - 9:51 am

    Another stunning card Becca!

    I give cards all year long, so I guess I do anytime cards most of the time; however, I do almost all of my Christmas cards, so I guess it is pretty even. I get such positive feedback whenever I give one of my cards.ReplyCancel

  • Gwendolyn GilesJuly 29, 2016 - 9:52 am

    Hi Becca. Such a beautiful card. I make and give lots of birthday cards. I have everyone spoiled because they expect only handmade cards.ReplyCancel

  • ChelseaJuly 29, 2016 - 9:52 am

    Becca, your words just brought tears to my eyes today because you really never know when you send the “just because” card how much it will touch someone. In this day of social media we are losing the gesture of sending cards “just because”. We text, we instant-message, but we are often too busy to send something beautiful like this card of yours. You are an inspiration to us all.
    I send more “thinking of you” than holiday cards. In fact, I don’t send many holiday cards at all anymore. Maybe I’ll do better this year!ReplyCancel

  • KathyJuly 29, 2016 - 10:00 am

    Beautiful card. I definitely send out more holiday cards than “just because”. I send 20 cards for each holiday, so as soon as one holiday ends, I start planning for the next. Right now I am finishing Halloween, but I have several ideas for Thanksgiving on the drawing board. Of course, I also make birthday & thank you cards throughout the year. I have embraced a suggestion from Jennifer McGuire & try to make multiples of the same card so I always have one ready to go! Blessings to you!ReplyCancel

  • Agnes ThomsonJuly 29, 2016 - 10:02 am

    Honestly, I give more birthday, gift and shower cards. I give holiday cards primarily for Christmas. Your card today is so lovely as usual. I’m loving the soft pink. You are such an inspiration and I thank you for your generous spirit of giving.ReplyCancel

    I think I give more everyday cards. You amaze me with all the beautiful cards that you make. Christine S.ReplyCancel

  • Connie L. RileyJuly 29, 2016 - 10:14 am

    Good morning, Becca. Your card for today is so perfect! Although I love the idea of sending a card spontaneously for “no occasion” I’m always so behind in the cards for birthdays, etc. that I never seem to be able to make cards ahead! This card is so beautiful and I will probably attempt to do it for a special birthday or an anniversay for someone special. If I ever get organized, who knows maybe someday I, too, can surprise a lucky friend of mine with this “no occasion” card. It could happen. Thanks, as always, for sharing your wonderful talent and creative ideas.ReplyCancel

  • Barbara CJuly 29, 2016 - 10:23 am

    Gorgeous card, Becca! I do mostly holiday/occasion cards, but I really want to do more “anytime” cards. I think they are more important! Being a 24/7 caregiver to my husband, I know what it means to find an unexpected note or card in my mailbox…it means the world to me. It means I’m not forgotten. Hugs, Barbara in South CarolinaReplyCancel

  • Yvonne NicholsonJuly 29, 2016 - 10:24 am

    Becca another beautiful card. What did you use to make the small scallops peeping out behind the curved strip ? I make most Birthday and Anniversary cards.Hope you foot is getting better.ReplyCancel

  • SuzzieQJuly 29, 2016 - 10:26 am

    Your “Blessing” card is beautiful. I give/send more all occasion cards than Holiday cards if one counts Birthday and Anniversary cards in the all occasion cards. I find as I am aging and my friends are aging and they are going through life’s trials and health issues, I am making and sending out loads of “thinking of you” cards to lift their spirits. When I first found your blog last summer during your give away a day card time, one of your questions had to do with what do we do with the extra cards we make. My answer at that time was to tell you I was making one card at a time and did not have any extras on hand. Well, times have changed. And now I do make more of the same design, changing colors and placements to change them up to have extras on hand. That way I can get my cards in the mail sooner without the waiting time of making one card at a time. Wishing you a most pleasant weekend. How’s your foot?ReplyCancel

  • DebraJuly 29, 2016 - 10:27 am

    This is a great idea to give ‘no occasion’ cards. I love making them more than any other kind of card. When my daughter was away from home, I used to make and send her encouragement cards often but now she is home, I don’t. Maybe I need to start up that practice again! Right now I make more holiday and occasion cards. You’ve created another beautiful card for us Becca! Thanks for sharing!ReplyCancel

  • TammieJuly 29, 2016 - 10:28 am

    Hi Becca. Hope you are healing well.
    I love the simple message of this card. I would send a card with this message to several special people in my life. I send “anytime” cards more often than holiday cards. Each day is an opportunity to share a sweet message with others.ReplyCancel

  • VickyJuly 29, 2016 - 10:30 am

    Becca, another beautiful card.
    What a great idea to just send a card.
    I usually send cards for some occasion mostly birthday.
    I have many cards to send out at any time
    & I will start doing that.ReplyCancel

  • Brenda WJuly 29, 2016 - 10:31 am

    Becca, all your cards are so beautiful and I’d love to receive one.
    The cards I send out most are just everyday cards. I love to send them to my family to let them know how much I care or to just give them a little chuckle with the humorous ones I send.

    My daughters and grandkids love receiving them and if I haven’t sent one in a while I always get, “Hey, where’s my cards?”ReplyCancel

  • Kathy RJuly 29, 2016 - 10:32 am

    Very pretty card!

    I do mostly cards although i have made invitations as well.. I just did my daughter’s wedding invitations a few months ago.. also have made other wedding invitations as well as baby showers and parties. So fun! And then there are the Christmas cards.. generally make at least 50.ReplyCancel

  • Linda WaltonJuly 29, 2016 - 10:33 am

    I love all of your cards. This one is very ‘me’. I love pink, feminine. I give mostly Birthday cards but many ‘just because’ cards as well. Thanks BeccaReplyCancel

  • Judy BJuly 29, 2016 - 10:35 am

    I probably do a lot more holiday cards then “thinking of you” cards. The times that I have sent out those cards I received calls from the recipients on how they loved getting the card. We all should be more thoughtful and kind to others. Your card is amazing as usual Becca.ReplyCancel

  • Yoshiko GlennJuly 29, 2016 - 10:36 am

    Another gorgeous/elegant card that anybody would love receiving at any time. I tend to do more “event” cards (weddings, birthdays, births, etc.), followed by Christmas cards.ReplyCancel

  • Joanne LoweJuly 29, 2016 - 10:48 am

    Definitely more of the anytime cards–thank you, get well, thinking of you, etc. I love sending an encouragement card, hoping to make a whole lot more once my craft room is completely overhauled, and I just bought a new electric die-cutting machine (Gemini by CC), and am hoping that this is going to make die-cutting and card-making a lot easier physically. Can’t wait to try some watercoloring on images heat embossed in white or clear, I really want to try this, and I’m hoping I can do a decent job.

    Always LOVE your cards, Becca!!! You are such an encouragement and a blessing to all of us here who read your blog updates regularly, and I know to all of those loved ones around you. I hope you know just how much you mean to all of us!!! And I hope that you have dear ones who regularly encourage YOU!!! A friend today put a posting on FB talking about how God’s grace is sufficient, even for all of my flaws and failings, realizing this is such an encouragement to me…

    Be blessed, Becca, and have a very enjoyable weekend.ReplyCancel

  • Carole FlanaginJuly 29, 2016 - 10:57 am

    Becca, what an inspiration you have been to me in my card making. This card is absolutely beautiful. I make cards year round for family, friends, senior members of our church. This means I am making Christmas, birthdays, thinking of you, get well, sympathyk, and love making those cute new baby cards. I would have to say that I make less holiday cards.ReplyCancel

  • Marilyn in E~TownJuly 29, 2016 - 10:57 am

    Gorgeous card! I love your loopy bow, such a sweet addition. I love to send “just because” cards at any time, for any reason. Who wouldn’t want to find a gorgeous hand made card in their mail box, talk about a spirit lifting moment! I can visualize smiling faces now.
    I also made it a mission of mine to make a project every year for the ladies at my church, then I mail it to them on their birthdays, it is as much of a pleasure for them to receive as it is for me to make, thinking of each of them as I assembly the project. So far I’ve done cards with flower bouquets, cards with a hand colored image and this year they get a puff pillow box, with flowers and a mini birthday card inside. 2017 will be a tag with a Magnolia-Lucius image colored on it.
    Oh how I love to brighten other people’s day?
    Have a wonderful weekend BeccaReplyCancel

  • Doreen RitchieJuly 29, 2016 - 11:23 am

    Absolutely stunning card! I send occasion cards – birthday, wedding anniversary, congratulations, thank you, baby, greater numbers probably in that order. I don’t send Christmas cards, preferring to donate to a third world charity, and have done so for 28 years.

    Must confess that my Christmas cards are simple photos. I love to create cards with scripture, words of gratitude, and “anytime” messages and give several of those per week. Your card is delicate and gorgeous, and I appreciate your philosophy on card giving!ReplyCancel

    Hello Becca, uour card is absolutely gorgeous. The type of cards I send most is probably birthday cards. I love the idea of sending ‘anytime’ cards. Thank you for bringing that foward. I think I’m going to do that. I have many cards made that would be perfect to send out to friends.ReplyCancel

  • Cathie WearyJuly 29, 2016 - 11:51 am

    I actually think, I do more anytime cards than holiday cards. Especially the last couple of years life has been a bit rough, so I haven´t got as many holidaycards done, as I used to earlier, but I alwayas manage one way or another to get them at least one card during the year, either for their birthday or sometime else, or just because, and that´s because all other people make or get cards to give for these special occasions, but then I´ll make one for some other time, when they least expect it, and it can hopefully make their day at that time.
    Thanks sooo much for sharing this gorgeous card here today Becca, it´s soooo gorgeous and sooo elegant. I just absolutely love it with that fabulous bow on it.ReplyCancel

    This card is one of the most breath-taking I have ever seen. I was totally stunned when I opened the page. After several years making and looking at cards made by others, I’d say it is not easy to take my breath away.

    I give more anytime cards. It just so good to keep in touch with family and friends.

    Thank you for sharing this beautiful creation.ReplyCancel

  • Hazel ParrJuly 29, 2016 - 2:11 pm

    I so love your cards and especially your dies! As to what cards I make the most, I’m on the design team for Crafters companion so I rarely have the time to make cards to give “just because” although I do try to for both our parents as they do so much for us. It’s our 17th wedding anniversary today and I’ve been so busy with dt work plus we’ve just moved that today is the first time since I’ve been making cards that my poor hubby didn’t get one. When I apologised he don’t worry I have loads you’ve made me.

    I love making cards of all types and styles so I try to stockpile a few of everything almost finished and wait for the occasion to pop up and I finish and send. I probably send out more Birthday and Holiday cards than Special days ones but those are the ones that are more special to me and much more personal to the one I send it to…..this one is a beauty.ReplyCancel

    Hi, Becca,
    YOU are a blessing! I can see why you duplicated this card – it is so beautiful, sight and sentiment.
    While I do make a lot of cards at the holidays, especially Christmas, I make cards for my church and community choirs to reach out to our members in greater quantities. “Thinking of You” cards for Sympathy or health concerns are the most common, with “Thank You” cards in the mix, as well. I am challenged to keep up with demand, but I am honored to have many people around me that appreciate and encourage my craft.
    Love and blessings for your health & happiness,

  • SaraJuly 29, 2016 - 4:32 pm

    There is something so sweet and little-girl-like about your card, Becca. So dainty, too. For me, making birthday cards for my family and friends, keeps me very busy. My Christmas cards go to families, while birthday and Anniversary cards go to everyone. Enjoy your week!ReplyCancel

    The ‘just thinking of you cards’ are so important and I am trying to send more of them as they are real spirit lifters! I know how lovely it is to receive such a sentiment.
    I send about 200 Christmas cards and it would be pretty hard to catch up with that number, but you never know….

    I send out a variety of cards throughout the year but not enough thinking of you cards. I need to create more and do multiples so I have them on hand. I’m definitely giving your card a try in multiples. Thank you Beech for your inspiration.ReplyCancel

    I send all yr to send a card for no reason…I’m getting ready to do a free class to a place, that houses 20 ladies, that have done some type of crime, they try to help them better there lives, they all have jail bracelets on their ankles, most have nothing, but now on sat, they r doing crafts and I was asked if I would teach them how to make cards, I’m so excited to. Do this ….going to make up kits for each of them, with some extra goodies, so they can play more when I’m gone…great time to rid some of my paper and other misc items…wish me luck..oh love your card too! Sorry for the long post…can’t wait to share this craft with all of them and to give each one a huge paper hug…hugs are always free and can make someone’s day, that u care!ReplyCancel

    Hi Becca. Such a very lovely card as always. how is your foot doing? On the mend I hope. I give birthday cards the most. Handmade ones makes folks feel special as they’re tailor made for each person. You can’t buy that. Happy weekend.ReplyCancel

    Your website is my go to site for card creating ideas. It saves me a lot of time. Thank you so much.
    Most cards that I give are not given as greeting cards but as birthday and thank you gift bundles.ReplyCancel

    I usually give birthday cards. I have given a Mother’s Day card this year, but I have to make them as the occasion arises. I don’t have a stash of ready made cards…yet! I look forward to creating the stash!ReplyCancel

    I love to send cards. Most of mine are birthday, anniversary, wedding, get well or thinking of you cards. The only holiday cards I make are Christmas cards. It gives me great joy to give a card and have the recipient smile when he/she opens it.ReplyCancel

    Hi Becca,

    Gorgeous creation. I guess I give anytime cards as we don’t do hoilday’s cards over here, at least I have never heard of it lol! We give the usual birthday/anniversary/wedding etc but also Thank you & thinking of you cards.

    Have a great day

    Love & hugs

    Hi Becca!
    Love the cream color to this card. I seem to forget cream and go in favor of white. I love the layering on this card but especially love the pop of the pink ribbon and button details! I seem to give cards mostly for birthdays and holidays, although, I do send “brighten your day cards” to my two daughters who sometimes need a boost of confidence. I need to rethink sending out for ‘just because’ more!ReplyCancel

  • Carol H.July 31, 2016 - 4:27 pm

    Your card is so pretty, as they all are!!!!! :) I guess I send out cards more for holidays and occasions like birthdays, anniversaries and the like. I do send some cards for no reason though. Hope your foot is getting much better!ReplyCancel

  • Margie FulcherJuly 31, 2016 - 6:20 pm

    Becca: I would feel so blessed to win one of your cards. You are such an inspiration to me. When I reach a roadblock in my creating, I go to Amazing Paper Grace for inspiration. I send more holiday cards although I do share many birthday cards with my family and friends. Cardmaking is a therapy for me. Thanks for sharing your talent.ReplyCancel

  • Roxanne EllerJuly 31, 2016 - 7:17 pm

  • Faulba DorsettJuly 31, 2016 - 8:12 pm

    I generally send more Christmas cards than anything. I do, however, send lots of birthday cards. I wish I had time to make more cards but life comes first. Hope you have a wonderful week.ReplyCancel

      sorry forgot to answer your question. I give out cards alot for birthdays, sympathy, wedding, births, get well, and holidays. but I also send out cards for no reason other than I hope to make someone happy.ReplyCancel

    Beautiful card – I send out mostly holiday cards but am on a mission to send more birthday and other general cards.ReplyCancel

  • Jennie BaileyAugust 6, 2016 - 2:15 am

    Just for the joy on the face of a recipient given a ‘no occasion’ card is a pleasure to me.
    Such a beautiful card and loving the Spellbinders dies.

  • Noelene ApapAugust 6, 2016 - 8:40 pm

    Hi Becca,
    What a lovely card & lovely idea. I guess not only will it cheer the receiver but it makes the giving person happy. I always like giving gifts etc more than I enjoy receiving.
    I make more birthday cards than anything. I think I will have to take on the just because idea as well.
    Have a lovely weekend xReplyCancel

    Beautiful card! This is my first chance to post a comment on Day of Giving. I am normally not on my computer on Friday’s but with all this rain, it is an inside day for sure.

    I mainly give birthday and Christmas cards so I guess I fall under the holiday giver. I do love to make cards but I hope one day I can make cards like yours without having to copy.

    Thanks for all the inspiration you provide to me.ReplyCancel

  • Kathleen ReillyAugust 20, 2016 - 12:35 am

    Another beautiful card. It must feel good for you to be home. Take it easy and do not attempt to do to much. God Bless
