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

Amazing Race, Cadel! What an Aussie! Le Tour Champion 2011

Ah, the sleepless nights from10pm till 2am will fade into the distance and one rejoices in the win for Cadel Evans at Le Tour de France, wow! the first Aussie since it began in 1903.
Cadel’s tears on the podium after receiving the Yellow Jersey told it all! Overwhelmed, joyous, and very, very grateful, as his interview afterwards showed.
If you dont know what I am talking about - a great summary here, or even check out my brothers' blog. My brother has been riding and watching day by day in France, Italy and Switzerland. Today will be the greatest day of all - the ride into Paris along the Champs Elysees (photo below) to take out the tour - what a day!An Aussie winning this race is akin in importance to when we won the America's cup and brought it back to our shores. We do love our sport over here. A short post cos I am very tired... only one more night to go!!

A big congrats to a worthy champion who has fought so hard to get to this at the grand age of 34, one of the oldest in 88 years to win it.

In conclusion I just wanted to express my sorrow for all those suffering in the tiny country of Norway, such a big loss, and an inexplicable one really. Any claim this killer makes that he had good reasons for doing what he did do not ring true. No matter what his belief it will not justify the terrible thing he has done.
My thoughts and prayers are with them all.


Thanks for looking and may God bless your day where you may be,
