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

Mrs A's Inaugural Butterfly Challenge

Hullo one and all another very quick post as felt needs must make the effort to join our Playground pal Mrs A's "Inaugural Butterfly Challenge".Actually when just popped over was delighted at how many of our (Dis Snippet's) playmates were over there! What splendid pals they all are!
Here is my ultra quick card. I needed a quick "Get well" card for a dear lady (in her 80's, broke her femur - so praying for speedy recovery, please Lord).
The Inaugural Butterfly #1 Challenge requires us to use two flowers and two butterflies on it.. and does not have to be a card can be many media. Just see Mrs A.'s lovely examples on link. I used K Kingdom Butterfly and Leaves E.F. Verse from WAW using labels 4. Purple snippet was pearlised with frosty mauve ink. Cut flowers and stem from Olivia Alphabet CB die set, with two punched butterflies. 
Of course embossing folder has about four or five peeking on it and used my butterfly watermark too so think there are enough butterflies for a butterfly challenge! :D
Again apologies for not commenting as much as want, as should not be on here anyway.. but do sneak in sometimes :D Thanks so very much for popping over for a peek and chat.
You do cheer my heart, may God bless and keep you all safe wherever you may be.

PS meant to say joining over with Snippet Challenge (purple snippets) and Word Art Wednesday (Anything goes) where the digi stamp of verse is from .. I need it too at the moment.
 Isaiah 40:31 But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.

It might just be a trick of the light but the butterflies wings look two tone. A beautiful card for your friend with a lovely verse. Hope the break mends without any problems for her. Thank you so much for fluttering by my new little venture.I never dared to think it would take off so well.Hugs Mrs A. (butterfly challenge).

Love this pretty white & lavender card done with your usual elegant style. Isn't it fun to see our Playground Elves jumping in with the Butterflies too? Another great way to use up the snippets in such a pretty way. Great card, TFS & big hugs too.
