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

"For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord." Luke 2:11

Favourite Items + Brenda's five year candy!

Hullo one and all - over and B.'s website or Brenda of Flora Fantasies she has a candy.. but an ultra special one, five years blogaversary!
.. and she wants us to:
Share your all time favourite crafting item by entering a piece of artwork using it, it can be a stamp, dies, fabric, colouring medium, just whatever you find you return to time and again. And I will be sharing one of two using my favourite P107 as well !! Share your all time favourite crafting item by entering a piece of artwork using it, it can be a stamp, dies, fabric, colouring medium, just whatever you find you return to time and again. And I will be sharing one of two using my favourite P107 as well !!..........
On 5th March I will do a random draw of all entries for seven winners who will all receive two sets of dies.....
So here is one or two of my favourite much-used things!!
 Firstly it is the Fleur de Lis labels 8 die.. how many times is this my "go to" die?? 
Secondly it is the Word Art Wednesday Bible digital verses (which are by Karen see her blog here  mostly for free here .. I love Karen's verses ~ so well done!).
I use them, praying as I go seeking to choose ones that will meet the needs of the heart for the ones for whom they are intended.  
God's word has more power than any other word.
Looking through my posts both these items appear frequently!
Also a favourite of mine are roses.. sadly do not use that often. This beautiful digi paper by Donna of Bearly My Designs.
So that s my offering for today. Happy 5th anniversary B. and thank you dear friend for the great blessing of your blog and your encouragement as well! Thank you for those who kindly comment and will reply as able, 
Shaz in Oz.x

Both of these are so beautifully soft and feminine Shaz and choosing a favourite would be impossible, but with both the soft floral's and lilacs really please the eye.

Thank you so much for all your kind words of friendship and I am so pleased you have joined in my blog celebration. Good luck when it comes to the prize draw.

Hi Sharon, So hoping you are feeling better now, and really enjoyed both of these beautiful lavender/lilac cards. I love the flowers on each, but am partial to those lovely roses. I forget to use that wonderful Fleur de Lis and it's perfect for this verse. Enjoyed the uplifting sentiments of each of the verses. Take care. Be well. TFS & Hugs
