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

A Big Thank You to Janet at Fairy Thoughts Blog

Well, found I had a very lovely surprise this week - a very kind award from Janet at Fairy Thoughts!

Thank you Janet - I really appreciate it. :D
"Liebster is a German word, meaning dearest or beloved, but it can also mean favorite."
 
The Liebster Blog Award is used to show appreciation of smaller blogs (under 200 followers) and to help spread readership and joy!  As part of the tradition, This award is passed along to five other blogs that have motivated and inspired me in such great ways!
To accept the award:
1. Link back to the person's blog who gave it to you and thank them :)
2. Post the award to your blog
3. Give the award to 5 bloggers (less than 200 followers) that you appreciate and value
4. Leave a comment on the five blogs you chose to let them know.

So these are not in any particular order of appreciation:
1.Crafty Chris - a newbie so do take a peek - you will be glad you did! Thanks Chris, for recently becoming a Wonderful Encourager on my blog!
2.Victoria of Furry Tale Cards and Craft - wow I love her cards - do take a peek another one to check up on!
3. Bridget Larsen of Fruit Salad blog - another Aussie, so a great addition to this team! see here on this post she sent me a beautiful card! Thank you, Bridget!
4.Anja of StampingAnja - ah her cards are really beautiful, and do enjoy the peacefulness of a visit to her blog..
5. TangoLikeRaindrop blog- and if you love craft and food here is a really great blog to visit! thanks for encouraging me, little Raindrop (you will love her sea view too, might need to scroll down past the lemon meringue, etc.!).

I would encourage all to stop by and comment on these five blogs - you will be so glad you did!
Thanks for stopping by!   And thanks again, Janet, for thinking of me.
And although I could not choose more than five you have have all helped me more than words can say!

Oh, and thought would show you all is sunny here again :D yippee! sun with occasional showers we can handle that!

A very special thanks so much for popping by and for your wonderfully kind and caring comments over the last few days!
God's richest blessing on each of you,

I see Janet beat me to it, I was also awarded the Liebster Blog and wanted to pass it on to you too! So glad you are already a recipient.

Thanks for all the lovely things you said about my cards on your visits. I really do appreciate the things you say. If you can get hold of Joyce Stranger's books, especially if you like animals (she is not chocolate boxish but quite realistic in her writing) they are well worth reading. She only ever wrote about things she knew well and had thoroughly researched. I like the look of your sun, we have snow at the moment. xx Maggie
