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

WOYWW - What's On Your Workdesk? Wednesday 104 - 2nd Anniversary time - YAY!

Ah, the big day of celebration has arrived! Tis here!!
  I would dearly love to say one BIG thank you to our glorious, royal hostess of this marvellous event - What Is On Your Workdesk Wednesday, Queen Julia. Her faithfulness to the task over two whole years is amazing and worthy of much commendation!

 

I only joined this blog hop January 12th , 2011 as I am only a new blogger, but have learnt so much through this weekly blog hop and really want to thank all concerned! Like Jude and my loose screw (no, not in my head…the Cuttlebug :D) and Susan for sorting out my Nesties with magnetic tape, and Shazsilverwolf and her Aspire cards which I am now hooked on - just to mention a very few!

Now my desk has been sadly neglected this week. I seemed to spend the week at doctor’s, specialists’, and Pathology waiting rooms – doing a medication change. Never popular with me, but God willing all is well! So here is the little bit I have done this week. None at all on my two Calligraphy projects, but one card is being assembled on the desk this week.

Here is the card finished. It is an engagement card a printed computer generated greeting,  it has Nestie hearts, Cuttlebug heart folders (top border is Kimmy Luvs and other is Love Duo, discontinued now), Marianne flower dies and ribbon flowers – I really love them.
TIP: if you have trouble with them coming out of Marianne dies I have found spritzing the card with water (hence the mini Mister on the front foreground) really works a treat! (first read on Ikki's Cuttlebug Cupboard)
I really like the Mirri card with the hearts and flowers. Have to make two more cards as well so better get my act together - now off to check out all the other desks (when the rest of the world wakes up) – do join in our weekly peek and come with me to Julia’s beaut blog -  Stamping Ground

Happy second anniversary every one and may God bless you wherever you may be!
Love Shaz in Oz.x

This is a beautiful card, as always, Shaz. Lovely stuff on your desk, too. I posted on my blog that my Blogger has been nothing but trouble for the last couple of weeks- I updated my browser to Firefox4, and its been working fine since- fingers crossed. Happy WOYWW, here's to many more

SueH said...

I’m making a special effort to get around everyone as it’s a special week this week.

What a beautiful card Shaz, so delicate looking.
I missed you last week but have just been to see your finished and framed piece that we have been seeing over the weeks you were working on it. It’s absolutely stunning and you must have so much patients do work on something so intricate as that.

Happy WOYWW 2nd Anniversary and …………….
Happy Crafting!

Hi there. Sorry I've not been round too much lately but made time today. Lovely card. Perfectly elegant for the occasion. Hope you are feeling better soon. It's always difficult changing meds but God is faithful in big and little things. His hand is always keeping us......
I'm sure the person getting your PIF will be blessed, I figured I'd be too late to be below you as you always post so early!
Bless you
