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

Great tips from Kerry and a Freebie!


Quick post today was reading on dashboard and saw that Bearly Mine Designs had their February Freebies out so thought you might like to see them!!


Quite a few beautiful sheets if you wish to check it out!! (also in the post below had another lot of Digi paper freebies..)
YUM!

Oh, and also saw a tip in WOYWW hop about embossing pearls and brads thought folk might like it - it was on Butlers Abroad by Kerry  (comment no. 32)
Pasting it here :
I love the photos of where you live, before and after the snow. 
You asked about embossing the little pearls. I stuck them on the end of a piece of card stock, so my fingers were far away from the heat gun, then dabbed them in Versamark, the dabbed them in the powder, then heated them. I gave them 3 coats. I’ve done the same with brads, but held them with a pair of pliers.

If I knew who Kerry was, I would give her page the credit as she obviously had something about it on her post. 

PS. Courtesy of Brenda's reply below here is Kerry's blog everyone! Check out her amazing cupcakes with RED cherries on top.. how clever is that!

PPS Tip number two from Kerry blog is how to make your own texture plate with Chipboard - wow this wonderful! see  here.

Here you go Shaz, this is Kerry: http://lakulcards.blogspot.com/

Thanks for the free paper tip, off to check it out. Wish the exchange rate for good for the US $ in Australia, I'd love some Darkroom Door stamps but they're expensive for me!!

Hugs
Brenda

Hi Shaz, thank you for visiting and hoping I was ok- don't we meet such wonderful people in Blogland! I was indeed just busy this week, I am up at 5am in the morning to work,and when I get home sometimes it is difficult to get enough time to be able to post AND visit everyone( or at least a large number,) and I hate to post if I can't find the time to visit too- seems a bit unfair.I shall be back this week though, and I am off to do some cards right now.
love, Shaz

Hi Shaz, this is me doing the WOYWW round very late but thank you for your comment on my blog - much appreciated. And thanks for all these links to useful sites and tips - anything new I can learn is fuel to my fire, so to speak. I already have Bearly Mine Digi Sets - Donna's papers are gorgeous. Your brother-in-law card it fab, a great male card using materials with ingenuity. Elizabeth x
