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

Birthdays A~plenty, but probably not WOYWW, sorry!


Hullo there everyone!! just visiting rellies and totally snowed under with catch up as days pass .. here are some card made last week in a hurry for two nephews I was going to see, whose birthdays are in February a well!!

Sorry not time for WOYWW this week... too, too busy, etc. for What is on your Workdesk Wednesday, plus have come down with another tooth infection. See the specialist surgeon about it on Wednesday, so that is a blessing. Have better antibiotics this time and not as much pain which is great - asked for a different one. May make WOYWW later in week, you never know.:D

However here is a wee peek at the cards. All images on cards are courtesy of Mr Google - he is very obliging. Printed them after a Google search on good paper then die cut them up. Computer generated greeting on second card, plus used a happy Birthday embossing folder for the background and Spellbinders labels 4 for the die cut and Spellbinders ribbon label.
I will have to check other frog die cut if someone wants to know. I know I bought it with Neet in Abahkan in Manchester so is UK one. :D Maye Xcut?
Just closing with photo of the beach where my birthday nephews love to come - their parents live here :D lovely day in January, when this was taken, been bit wet of late.

As used snippets in cardboard etc in making these cards - particularly second one, I'm entering it in Di's Snippets Challenge!! Sorry commenting is limited till better but do appreciate so much your visits.

Well, thanks so much everyone for popping over for peek and chat.. and may God bless your day wherever you may be..

Love your birthday cards Shaz. Glad I'm not the only one who uses Google images for cards. Love the picture of the beach too, made me feel a bit warmer. freezing here.
Do hope your tooth is better soon, it is just so hard living with toothache, just can't get on with life. Somehow it is much worse than other types of pain.
Thanks for the link to my blog, I have had a couple of other visitors, probably as a result of it.
