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 50 years ago, after a Beach Mission Service at the age of 12 years

THANK YOU Wonderful Encouragers - 2nd Anniversary Candy

Hullo everyone - some exciting news today!! 
It is 1.11.12, and if you dont know what that means???

I started my blog on 01.11.10 
(yes it is a palindrome ie reads backward and frontwards the same that way wont forget it!)
So it is this blog's Second Anniversary!! 
As I have so many Wonderful Encouragers who have joined and encourage me during the year on my blog by leaving wonderfully cheering and helpful comments:
~I want to do a BIG "THANK YOU" with a small bit of candy~
Here it is!!!   To enter:
1. You have joined my blog and become one of my Wonderful Encouragers This is the whole point - it is a THANK YOU to You, those faithful ones! 
New Encouragers are more than welcome :D if you are of the genuine variety!

2. If you are able to, I would appreciate if you could put a link of this candy on your blog's sidebar. Those who take the time to do this will get too entries in the candy, as an extra thank you!

3. Please leave a comment below to say you would like to take part.

 It contains:
  • A Thank YOU Card, done with brayer resist.
  • Some Pearls from Kaisercraft
  • Brad set - masculine from Kaisercraft
  • A Christmas Cling stamp set from Hero Arts 
  •  Marianne corner die LR0143.

Details for die below as it is hard to tell from this. I have two other ones of these, and they are fanatastic.
The Marianne Die LR0143 

 It is really amazingly beautiful.
Go to the end of  the video, as it is the last item on it. 
She shows how lovely it is is. 
To be honest after watching it I wanted to keep it!

But it's not how it works, so must be good. It IS part of the thank-you candy!  
A gift is truly a gift when you like it yourself.
These corner dies are very versatile. You could try lots of variations, here are some similar ones for ideas, taken from their site. The first and last one is the actual die, but the bottom die cut makes an amazing circle frame on the video, where she uses four of them.

This is NOT my card ~ from Marianne Site

This Candy will be stay open until 30.11.12.

The candy will be drawn, all being well on 1.12.12, Australian time. By then everyone should be into December :D 
I will post overseas, I chose light things for that very purpose.

If not sure you have joined this blog, (as  I forget which ones have joined often) just try and join - Google wont let you join twice, this saves looking though all the pickies.

Thanks so much everyone for popping over for a peek and chat, and most of all may God bless you all for being such WONDERFUL ENCOURAGERS!!
love Shaz in Oz.x

Lovely offer Shaz, generous and kind as you are! Add me in and congratulations to you for winning Neet's candy! Woo hoo!
Re my hits counter... no I never get spam and I have only had one bad message in 3 years. Someone posted nasty comments on quite a lot of crafters blogs including mine, really nasty suggestions as to what we should do to our work! Not bad from so many and there are so many lovelies out there as we know.
Love Jo x have a great weekend and keep on getting better!
