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

Fridays Smiles, Free Butterflies and the latest video

Hullo everyone joining up over with Annie's Friday smiles .. 
I thought you might like this..
 Pecking order at bath time with Rainbow Lorikeets, on my You tube video!! 
This is mum and dad (from last year's video) and the one that sits on side, and looks quite puzzled by their antics, is the juvenile. It is taken again through the lounge room window but this time from other side and the windows were cleaned recently too inside and out :D so sort of clearer. 

In the end my hands gave way so stopped it before end just as baby one started to have drink at the end, then flew away, sorry missed it .. (music is Handel's "Water Music", on video)

The bird bath is in the courtyard, on fence side, near the Mother-in-law's tongue which was in flower a while back (see here). Here it is a weed, I gave up pulling it out and decided was better than nothing. Photos often are taken of cards out in courtyard, on stone mat, or in courtyard garden which is shells stones and plants.. mostly collected over many years, shells and stones. Lots of walks... :D
Also saw a freebie today which made me smile, so if you like butterfly images you might like this too - see link here at FREE Vintage Digital Stamps. It was in different colour tones too. Would look fab printed on vellum, and fussy-cut out and mounted on card dont you think?
Thanks for popping over for peek and chat, and may the LORD bless your day with its burdens wherever you may be!!

PS would like to welcome my newbie encouragers on my blog, months since welcomed properly so here they are - thank YOU SOOO MUCH for encouraging me:
Silvia, Janet, Lucy, Shirley Anne, Gail, Ike, Karen M., Ria, Annette in Oz, Rosie, Angeliki, Betsy 
So many I thank you all however this is more than THREE whole months  - was actually ashamed when realised it is well over three months since welcomed any by name (shame on me!) links where I could find some.. not all share, so can reciprocate which  I always do, when able.

Hi Shaz, welcome! I just commented on my blog and it didn't ask me for verification. How weird that it asks others, I thought I had it turned off as I don't like it either. Will investigate further...........
