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

With God all things are possible..

Hello everyone. Another Stampin Sisters in Christ Challenge for Sunday, and this week have a real easy one!!! Our hostess this week is the lovely Linda! 

Linda has chosen Mark 10:27 for this week's Scripture.

And Jesus looking upon them saith, With men it is impossible, but not with God: for with God all things are possible. 
"God is not limited by our understanding of Him, there are many accounts of healing and miracles in the Word of God where the circumstances have been impossible but people have placed their trust in God and He has taken the impossible and made it possible."

So may we take these burdens to Him in prayer - believing He is God and able to work in all things in Hos time, and in spite of us.

Linda's Challenge is Anything Goes! Now how easy is that!!!

Here are two white and red Christmas card with the really beautiful Festive Tree A2 Craft Concepts Embossing Folder.
I wanted to keep it simple to show off the intricate details of the folder. It is white embossed on shimmery paper, then used fine snow-like glitter on details, with red card highlights and organza red white spot ribbon for trim. 

Used one of my favourite Daily Bread Christmas verses from "Christmas Blessings" for the greeting with red embossing powder. Would you believe my brother bought me this embossing powder? and an equally lovely green one and some delicious papers for me one Christmas - how is that for brotherly love?

Thanks for popping over everyone and may the dear Lord bless your day wherever you may be,
Shaz in Oz.x

Красивая открытка.

Hi Shaz,
I regret that I badly know English :(
So you want to write to you much.
