Thank you for taking time to visit, and I hope I am even a tiny bit helpful as I have been helped and blessed by so many others. I have been doing Calligraphy since teens, and card making for many years as well. In 1990 I delighted in the joys of stamping with ink and embossing after a trip to Cairns, Qld. In 2009 I discovered the brayer, 2010 the Cuttlebug, also have now taking to reading up on crafting blogs and lo! Here I am, on one of my own.

I live on the coast of eastern Australia. I am a Christian. I trusted in the LORD down here at the beach, amazingly it is not far from where I now live. It was over 40 years ago, after a Beach Mission Service at the age of 12 years

Gelato Birthday Card + Heat Embossing Printed Digi

A while ago now I received an email from a fellow crafter who live in the Emerald city (Sydney), and RosA of Paperchase (from WOYWW ) said that Big W ( chain of Woolworth here in Oz) had Gelatos on sale. Ros said she had rushed into get them that morning, and also knew I wanted some.
Now it was raining here cats and dogs, (we had storm of over 5 inches in 12 hours to give you an idea) but I rang up and Yesss! they had some and put them aside and went it when it want raining quite so bad.. and bought the big set on sale ($21) and smaller set (9.99)

Set on right are called Tropical and had colours not in big set.. this girl must have a purple :D (photo cut off hot pink at end of the set.)
This set is in the video below and love the swatch set to give yo an idea of what you can do.. it was this video that Ros sent me.

Okay, had to make a birthday card for my darling dad, so here was my collection ... had the top three pieces together in stash. Two of them I had inked at different times, ship image was printed out when making another card..
Snippets collected and took kraft ripple rib sheet sample in Gelato swatch set and my three colours orange, yellow and gold. Forgot to show it when it was coloured but here you see first layer on ridges if you peek close, the  orange..
Rub colour in with your gingers as you add them, they smear beautifully and creamy but dont leave them to set BUT smear them as you colour.
I found that out :D
Okay here you can see all the different colours... the brilliant orange piece of mixed shades was number of inks no idea what and I think I misted them so possibly DI. Used Sizzix Square Lattice EF.
I wish you could see the beautiful sheen on the Gelatos give the ripple card ... it really was stunning. I mounted everything on black card; the background Swirl EF was done with my 8" x 8" folder I cut down to fit in Big shot.. see here.
One last image ..
TIP: This was a digi I made ( with "Black Chancery" by DaFont) but because the background card printed on had slight almost sheen to it making ink slow to dry, I was able to emboss in with clear embossing powder..
Wow, I loved that bit.. I nearly always try unless it is an absorbent card as you can get a good effect.. be quick that's all, you have embossing powder, etc on the ready. If you dont have an embossing buddy you can get recipe here on this post - they make all the difference .. and so cheap to make, I have half a dozen cos misplace them. 
Well, thanks everyone who has taken time to comment, you are really appreciated. Will return visits as soon as I can.
I will not be back for WOYWW this week as things are full on mid week, but, God willing, later on. 
May God bless your day, every one - wherever you may be!

WOYWW + Using up Snippets!

 Hullo there everyone!
Am sorry have been rather non blogger of late, partly because of situation here at home and in part because of the health of a very dear family member, don’t see improvement in near future.
as tis Wednesday, time to link over to desks of the world for WOYWW What is On Your Workdesk Wednesday.
Some snippets so over to the Snippets playground (YAY!) 

plus Word Art Wednesday where Anything Goes!

However first image shows and postie delivery about two weeks ago now or maybe three? YUMMO!

Sadly haven’t had time to play with them yet, other than a quickly stamped gift card the other day. This is from a $25 voucher won over at Darnell's NBUS no. 3 candy in January, 2015.
Well, candy in part because I added it :D and so did the very kind Shery @ Stamplorations (two free masks, hearts and clouds), plus lovely clear stamp sets from

A BIG THANK YOU to both  of these kind crafters!

this size stamp set will be perfect for the upcoming ATC swap esp. top left and middle left.. I canna wait!!

My desk on Monday night, had this lovely snippet of wrapping paper wanting to be used plus some other of chocolate blown and teal...
A Bible verse wooden stamp from early1990's which was stamped on snippet of card. Note first one had centre letters missing, second had side missing, + bit of centre too.
Still embossed them both and thought, mm ..
TIP ~ out came my fine black waterproof texta!
Result: two usable stamped images.. corrections not embossed, that wont be noticeable.
CARD 1: Joy Craft Vintage Flourish butterfly, with SB Fancy ovals, and small oval dies. Pearls etc. from stash. Used Promarkers to colour both stamped images, used Wink of Stella pen on both of them but does not photograph. 
This verse promises us the blessing of God's presence with us in all our endeavours, if we but seek Him.

CARD 2: Hand cut this die, used also Fancy SB ovals, MB Mirri butterfly, and Lala land filigree corners. Ribbon + pearls from stash, one card is for friend with cancer, other is a birthday card.

Today's Aussie shot:
It is Autumn time Downunder, my favourite time of year!!! We have just had superb days, this is a gumtree sunset out at my sister's on Sunday, faint soft pink evening lights. God's creation is enthralling, and He feels especially close at this time of day.

Before I forget - I want to take the time to welcome two new Wonderful Encouragers - do take a peek at their blogs and be blessed too. 

Terry of Terry's Agape Creations .. wonderful colouring here if you want some tips.. and great inspiring blog for a dear blogger, Debbie over at

I will do my best to get back to everyone, but time is difficult... However I want to say you are appreciated… very much!
You bless my heart. I also have couple of questions to answer certain folk from last time I linked over to WOYWW, I think?
Every blessing of the dear LORD upon you and your day,

".. we trust in the living God, Who is the Saviour of all men." 1 Timothy 4:10

He is not here, for He is Risen

Dear Ones, well today is a day of great rejoicing as my title shares. 
First of all, though, thanks to all who care enough to pop over  and say Hi. Things are very topsy turvy here this past month and look like being that way for a while. Blogging will occur as able, but wont perhaps be as active at returning comments, for which I am sorry.
Can you imagine the great sorrow of the women and disciples upon the first day of the week? 
They thought all was lost - Jesus was dead upon the cross of Cavalry, and buried in stone tomb.
"Now upon the first day of the week, very early in the morning, they came unto the sepulchre, bringing the spices which they had prepared, and certain others with them.
And they found the stone rolled away from the sepulchre.
And they entered in, and found not the body of the Lord Jesus.
And it came to pass, as they were much perplexed thereabout, behold, two men stood by them in shining garments:
And as they were afraid, and bowed down their faces to the earth, they said unto them, Why seek ye the living among the dead?
He is not here, but is risen: remember how he spake unto you when he was yet in Galilee,
Saying, The Son of man must be delivered into the hands of sinful men, and be crucified, and the third day rise again.
And they remembered his words," Luke 24:1-8 (emphases mine)

I think this image of an empty tomb encapsulates the work of the cross the death, burial and resurrection of the LORD Jesus Christ, the Son of God our sin-bearer on the cruel tree.
A hymn came to mind at our church service today, I serve a Risen Saviour... may it bless your heart as it did mine.
I serve a Risen Saviour by A J Ackley
I serve a risen Saviour, He's in the world today;
I know that He is living, whatever men may say.
I see His hand of mercy, I hear His voice of cheer,
And just the time I need Him, He's always near.

He lives, He lives! Christ Jesus lives today!
He walks with me and talks with me along life's narrow way.
He lives, He lives, salvation to impart!
You ask me how I know He lives?
He lives within my heart!

2 In all the world around me I see His loving care;
And tho' my heart grows weary, I never will despair.
I know that He is leading thro' all the stormy blast;
The day of His appearing will come at last. [Refrain]

3 Rejoice, rejoice, O Christian, lift up your voice and sing
Eternal hallelujahs to Jesus Christ, the King!
The Hope of all who seek Him, the Help of all who find,
None other is so loving, so good and kind. [Refrain]

To Him alone be all the glory, honour and praise, with much thanksgiving for Resurrection day!

LOVE that sent Jesus to the cross

Greetings dear folks on this Good Friday.. we remember the ONE Who gave the greatest gift of all.. for those who wonder about  The WHY Good Friday see last year's post here..
It amazes me the changeability of human nature, with the days leading up to trial and death of our Lord Jesus Christ. On the first day of the week (we now call it Palm Sunday) they are crying to Jesus a Kingly welcome:
..... and then all but a few days later, that same crowd are crying when Pilate, in an attempt to let Jesus go, asked :
"What should we do with Jesus? and they cried "Crucify Him!" 
Yet we too are changeable - often we may blow with the wind, or flow with the situation as it is easer than swimming against the tide of public opinion.
Instead let us be Praising Him, the Lord of Glory, our Saviour Jesus!
God had a greater end in view though! God sees what we cannot, and He saw that man needed a way of salvation from their sin.
When we are bowed down with care and trouble there is ONE Who cares and wants to bear it for us... that is why the Father sent His Son, the LORD Jesus!

It was LOVE - LOVE that sent Jesus to the cross
LOVE that made Him stay there, till it says:

"And when Jesus had cried with a loud voice, he said, Father, into thy hands I commend my spirit: and having said thus, he gave up the ghost." Luke 23:46

Notice that .. He gave up His life ... it was not taken from Him. 
Jesus, God in the flesh, came down to earth to live among men. As Hebrews say : " He was tested in all points as we are, yet without sin."
He was sinless perfect BUT He knows our struggles.. our cares, sorrows. Surely he hath born our sorrows and our grief"
LOOK! See this chapter in Isaiah 53 many, many centuries before Jesus was born, the prophet Isaiah  drew the picture of the death Jesus would suffer for our sin, on the tree .. read and be amazed at teh detail, and be grateful too - see here
Satan thought He had won a victory on the cross .. he thought  wrongly though... it was God's way of Salvation and Satan's defeat. It was at the cross that the first prophecy about Satan's defeat was fulfilled, one of many. See Genesis 3:15 
As this verse above says
- GREATER is He that is in You.. by faith if we have trusted in the LORD Jesus as Saviour we receive the Holy Spirit to work in our hearts and lives.. God's spirit is great than any power with which Satan might to seek to deceive us.
This is the verse that led to my salvation many years ago.. read about it here and it summarises what Good Friday means - when the LORD gave up His life for us. His blood is the cleansing power for sin.. but salvation is gift! It is not ours till it is taken..
Praising Him, the Lord of Glory, Jesus!
On this day when we remember the greatest gift of all, when the Lord Jesus laid down His life on the cross, shed His blood for our sin, that we might by faith in Him have life for an eternity in heaven. Hallelujah!
How rich are we in Him! if we know Him as out our own Saviour!

Every blessing of the LORD, dear friends upon you and your dear ones on such a special day.

WOYWW +Some Inky Happenings + Snippets

Do you ever have days where you seem to go around in circles?? 
Well seem to be having a run of these days here… but none the less, it is Wednesday and need to do some joining around the desks of the world for WOYWW What is On Your Workdesk Wednesday … so head over to Julia’s - peek, learn and share - do! 

Seems this morning's desk was here a couple of weeks back (see here)! Well, at the time was having problems with this stamp Embroidered background by Justrite stamping cleanly all over. Julia suggested I give the large stamp a light sand, which I did!
 (Thanks, Julia, worked a treat) I also used my new tool which arrived this morning, so had to try it out with that – on right is the Compact Stamp Press by Fiskars and was hoping my background stamps would fit on it and they do –YAY!!!!! Use vertically as opposed to horizontally. It was super-uber cheap $13.69 (post included all way to Downunder), and came very quickly only two weeks! Inks used here are DI inks - Dusty Concord, Peacock feathers and fav. Weathered wood, with round tools. Stamped in versamark and with clear embossing powder. Piece top left from last week of Bokeh see post below.
As my WOYWW post was on Friday (!!) many of you probably missed it and is a great technique

A snippets’ card here.. the Edward Elephant image by Bugaboo was printed back a few months ago when made a 1st birthday card (see here). So cute, used SB square dies, and some baby DP had for ages now. The digi greeting matches heaps better than this image shows. It also has bit of 3D on the elephant and balloons, which also shows IRL.

A while back now had this MB Pietra die on my desk and was layering the narrow die to get a larger strip to use on a oval card. I formed an idea from Magpie’s card here. Used SB ovals like Magpie but centre die piece is totally different. Used also the CB Textile folder, Britannia favourite die Poinsettia, with Leaf Swirl die, and MB Pippi butterfly, CB Olivia alphabet die. Snippets used here .. that's why love dies - you can use snippets :D 
Yay, off to the playground!

Here is the Aussie shot of the day, taken on my mobile some time back not in summer. I was here yesterday down at the jetty, right at this spot, having a lovely swim.. Water is beautiful at the moment as still up about 27 to 29c, perfect, so clear and clean too -and yes know am very blessed.
Before I close I would like to give a big welcome to a new wonderful encourager of this blog - Stephanie of Steph's scrappy happenings! 

Thanks so much for popping over for peek and chat .. will return your visit as soon as I can, as do love to see your work too.
God bless your day and those you love, wherever you may be.

Bokeh Method with Cards, WOYWW 300+ Snippets Annie's smiles.

Hullo there everyone, well rather weary today after trip yesterday to big smoke - fly down and back in one day, medical but all is well .. 
 I wanted to post this method below as it is really fun method, and also this week if the 300th WOYWW (What is on Your Workdesk Wednesday) ~ share with the desks of the world! It is held over at Julia's Stamping Ground, and whatta trooper Julia is .. 300 WOYWW's!(well bar one in last year when her gall had the gall to intervene) 
Thanks so very much Julia - have learned so much from WOYWW, plus have made so many great friends.
I was actually going to meet up with fellow WOYWW-er yesterday (Thursday) RosA of Emerald city, but pulled out day before, as was too unsure of time element. Planes are easy to miss... :D
Well to my desk a while back. I am trying for the very first time the BOKEH technique (pronounced either /ˈbk/ BOH-kay or /ˈbkə/ BOH-kə, Japanese: [boke]) is the aesthetic quality of the blur produced in the out-of-focus parts of an image produced by a lens).  
It was the technique of month over at OSA. The best video I found was one just after I did this, by Splitcoasters see here. My page on Pinterest has lots of pins see here
LESSON 1: dont get it too wet or it will dry blotchy like mine.. I used distress inks  on watercolour but worked out afterwards used the wrong side of watercolour paper pad too (slow, very! are some folk :D)
: think re-inkers would be better as in the video but dont have many of those,
LESSON 3:  when you die cut use a heavier quality piece of acetate as you can get, mine was, as was scrap from a lid, but noticed the video she had trouble with that. The white bubbles are overlapped and are done with chalk ink, it is better really if you dry between, I also did the different sizes it three (odd numbers -> better balance) of larger size then five (or so of next size and more of last size. Would not bother with tiny ones again as you cant get them light and dont like that.
The one completed here has extra large Artneko Kanji stamped on vellum and white embossed Beautiful to stamp!
Video idea for this one is here. Stamp on vellum with Versafine jet back, embossed with clear then coloured with two mauve / lavender Brilliance inks. Stamp is Penny Black Slapstick cling  (40-099 Soft wings), from the playground - thanks Di, some time back :D
Verse is a favourite as folk who come here may know is Copyright 2006, bought on Ebay few years ago - by Stampabilities, GR1114. Still not sure I like this particular style of Bokeh method on this card. This is for Sue, for folks who pray for her, she is in hospital in UK, post chemo.
Last of all for today's Aussie images  .. the pineapple which we saw as a baby here down in the backyard, (and bigger, see here).
Taken the day it is was picked/ fell off 28th of Feb, 2015 - it had nearly fallen off, as fruit and top were so heavy and grew tad crooked.
In Front: the top from previous pineapple picked from plant .. see here
Didn't put ruler down very well but roughly 15cm, or 6"
Just pineapple bottom before cutting up - weight 629grams or 1.38pounds. I will add update when cut - it smells the best have smelt!!
Some snippets here so off to the Snippets Playground, as well as Word Art Wednesday .. Yay! and of course WOYWW - even if two days late! And as it is Friday tis time for Friday Smiles so will pop over to Annie's smiles too as this pineapple truly put a smile on my face .. :D
Every blessing of the LORD everyone where ever you maybe and thanks so much for popping over for peek and chat.. 

(Mm, am way behind commenting these days so will call back eventually, God willing, however I REALLY appreciate every one who cares enough to comment- thank YOU!)

Ink Resist with Variations, Water Dragon + WOYWW 299!!!

Hullo there everyone ... this is just another quick post as have a lot of catch up in posting lots of items not shared. My desk two weeks back making a card for BiL. This is technique saw on YouTube with Jennifer McGuire..  really very simple.
Background stamp of choice inked up with versamark and clear Embossing powder. Add inks (Distress Inks here) .. three colours were demonstrated I think - anyway that is what I went with!! Here it is Peeled Paint, Bundled Sage, and Weathered Wood (love this new colour!) and used the round ink daubers to apply in pattern.
Distress Inks Barn Door, Faded Jeans, and Weathered wood. Not made this one up yet.

This is the first one made up, trimmed down looked heaps better :D. Inked up white card with Bundled Sage on edges and Weathered Wood for double perfectly matched mounting. The stamp Happy Birthday is among my oldest I suspect from early 1990's only has Stamp Art on it and LA., stamped and embossed with Silver EP. Die cut is Victorian Rectangles by Couture Creations, inked with Sage. Brads are silver but look gold.
NOTE: would not recommend this stamp, as much as I like it. It is a Just Rite Cling called Embroidered Background Stamp.It was impossible to get a completely perfect stamping (imperfect in strips in middle). Not sure what I was doing wrong tried various techniques, ie on block down on paper then paper on block and press .. the first worked best... I have other background stamps this large and detailed but they are mostly Hero arts, no issues with other about half dozen background stamps..
This card was a real quickie birthday card for my sister, the SU Daisy stamp was ink emboss resist with brayer way back here on this post.

This is a quick card for a friend in hospital. Butterfly is Joy 6003/0023. Verse on Petite SB Ovals is a digi as is the background sheet. Added glossy accents to other butterflies on sheet. This piece and one above was in snippet images for ages. What a great promise to have from God's word, the LORD God is the stronghold in the day of trouble... or even when it is not a day of trouble!
Here is the image for Downunder today... this morning saw this little visitor hanging of the outside of the screen door. I quickly grabbed the camera and went out into the courtyard from the back so he would not see me, then zoomed in and clicked and came back into to get a shot from the other side... but he spotted me and suddenly did a huge leap off the door, and scuttled away. It is an Eastern Water Dragon.. a baby, they can grow to about three feet long, their tail is more than two thirds of their body length.. see another post back here where his cheeky face is peeking up from birdbath.
Well everyone, it is time to link on over to WOYWW at  Julia's Stamping Ground (What is on Your Workdesk Wednesday) ~ share with the desks of the world! Some snippets here so off to the Snippets Playground, as well as Word Art Wednesday.. Yay!
Every blessing of the LORD everyone where ever you maybe and thanks so much for popping over for peek and chat.. 
Mm, am way behind these days so will call back eventually!

More Spellbinder Majestic Labels 25

Hullo there everyone,
Just a quick post to share the cards started on my desk last week, as wont be posting this week for WOYWW, have others to share as well so will be posting again sometime towards end of this week. An update for those who were praying for the two cyclones that hit the end of last week, Lam in Northern Territory in fairly isolated area, and also Marcia in Northern Queensland. It has never happened before that two category 5 (highest category) crossed Aust. coast within hours of one another. Marcia caused a lot of damage.. some of which is only now being discovered. 
Mercifully most of the rain did not head south and down our way. It amazingly dissipated! We frequently get tropical lows from such cyclones. It was forecast for much flooding up north. It never eventuated, so the LORD was very merciful, answered prayer indeed. We, and north of us, have had goodly falls of rain but not flood worthy.

Steps of how this and cards below were made, are on this post here.. or scroll down, with Spellbinder Majestic Labels 25.
Psalm 91:1 is appropriate at all times "He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High shall rest in the shadow of the Almighty."
Psalm 91 is also called the Christians life Insurance Policy if you read it through you will see why :D Stamp is current, or relatively so - Copyright 2006, bought on Ebay few years ago - by Stampabilities, GR1114. Butterfly is Pippi from Memory Box and embossed only, very lightly, the vellum underneath then trimmed around it with hand scissors.
Stamp on this card and one below are by Stampendous from 1994,  so probably not available, I have been stamping for 25 years. This verse Revelation 21:3,4 " God Himself shall be with them... He will wipe away all tears from their eyes" - what a precious hope - it is for a sympathy card, and the other three are for birthdays. The verse, " the LORD bless you and keep you", is from Numbers 6:23,24 and has the reference on it but wouldn't fit so did not include it in stamping. These blue ones were inked with Brilliance inks an so could emboss them too as well as the purple Versafine.
All three together, had already posted the one shown last week to Qld. It was not popped up as high as these layers as it had to go through the post, will be hand delivering these three.
A card for an Oriental Stamp Art (OSA) weekly challenge and it was a layout challenge, I used the SU Sprinkles for the top lot of stamping, various daisy stamps including kanji are from Artneko Spring set 2014/2015. The three strips of a card were left over from the labels 25 cards, so really why made it. Ink was DI Rusty Hinge, and also coloured edges with it and the fine cord.
What a blessing it is... to have hands to craft and crafty goodies to use to encourage or bless others :D
Thanks so much for popping over for peek and chat... 
It is really appreciated even if am very slow to reply at times.

To my desk:

Here am mid morning today... and has not progressed much since then. This is using Majestic Labels 25 Spellbinder die set from many months ago - see here {Oo, so long and first time using!!} For those wondering about tool in one, it has the thumbs up! there are times when is poky tool only but mostly if use it correctly it works a treat except for few SB dies. Have two completed cards at top then starting on two other cards with different verse from and centre. They aren't needed this week but hoping to get ahead. I have three birthdays close together, and one sympathy being required. Snippets were used on top layers for these.
Building up the layers to get 3D effect.
Cards made with Majestic Labels 25, layered up. Psalm 91:1 is appropriate at all times "He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High shall rest in the shadow of the Almighty." Psalm 91 is also called the Christians life Insurance Policy if you read it throguh you will see why :D Stamp is also current, or relatively so - Copyright 2006, bought on Ebay few years ago - by Stampabilities, GR1114
Stampscapes *log cabin with *sedge filler, *rock ledge + *reeds all unmounted stamp. From Snippet drawer with completed images, image done ages ago with PanPastels. Corners are made with SB Fleur de Lis square die, DP is discontinued one and thought it matched the image with fine Nellie Snellen Ribbon edge die, love this one.
Native Fanflower (Scaevolasee here) growing down close to beach, in creekside garden.
Our beach ~ a bird's eye view - a Peewee preening himself was caught some time back our on a walk - taken on my mobile. It doesn't have digital zoom so was standing close to him :D

I will comment as able ~ may take 'til next week but will get there :D
Thanks so much every one for popping over for a peek as chat, and may God bless your day wherever you may be!

PS just heard two cyclones,  one Cat.1 in far north Qld, other Cat.3 (highest category is Cat. 5) in NT in Gulf country. Praying for the folk concerned and rain winds etc will not be as severe as forecast. We are predicted to have heavy rainfall fir several days.. flooding a prayer point too for many areas north of here. All prayers appreciated. 
UPDATE: Both Marcia and Lam crossed landfall within hours of one another, both were Cat. 5.  Now praying for rain not to cause massive flooding, we often get a tropical lows after these events.
