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

Baby Christening Card ~ LOTV image, pearls and lace.

Hullo there every one!
I just loved this card when finished a few weeks ago now - nothing more satisfying is there?
Although I can't say same for photo, I was in a hurry - and somehow pinks are very hard to photograph, aren't they? Yes, it was lovely soft pink on second photo, not peach.
  Used a LOTV image (Lili of the valley) as asked to make a christening card - never made one before. Had bought a set of LOTV baby images on post-Christmas sale, think it was. 
When doing other images in this set before found the Octagons worked really well, so used my Spellbinder set again. Embossing folder is Cuttlebug one, "Love set" (discontinued). 
Greeting set is from Spellbinder fancy label 3 with computer generated details requested by my friend. I happened to have a pearl outline which matched. Corner dies are my absolute fav. set, two of the set are really great - CB Vintage Corners. Added the lovely lace edge
details. Here it is closer up.. to see glittery bits of lovely image, lace and greeting details. My friend was also delighted with the card, and that makes it special for me.
A quick post this time as not 100%, may or may not make it to WOYWW tomorrow, missed last week, but at moment not a good day for me.. commenting is also impaired by health. 
Sorry dear faithful friends, as your comments mean a lot to me and do like to reply to your kindness.
May our gracious God bless your day in every way,
Shaz in Oz.x 

I would like to enter this in the following challenges: 
2. Di's Snippetty challenge, as lots of snippets in card and lace.
3. Word Art Wednesday - Anything goes

Shaz,
Everything about the card is stunning. Those corner pieces look like it has one little flower from a Lily of the Valley stem.
Wonderful work.

Hi Shaz
thanks for the kind thoughts regarding this silly shoulder of mine. I have MRI booked for Friday and repeat appointment to see specialist the week after that as I was "too complicated" for him to get his head around when I saw him yesterday LOL. Hope you too are feeling much better soon. This is a gorgeous card by the way Shaz!!
BIG hugs
Annette

Dear Shaz,
I'm so sorry to hear that you're not on top form at the moment...take it easy and give yourself some TLC....we all need time out..I sure did on my holidays. I honestly felt like a different woman coming back, in fact that's the problem, none of us wanted to come back! Sign of a good holiday :-)
Lots of love, LLJ xxxxx

Stephanie said...

Hello dear Shaz! This is a darling card :) Sorry to hear you are not feeling well and I hope you feel better soon!

Love and hugs!

Mrs A. said...

Sorry to hear your not feeling 100%. hope your back on top form soon. This card is really pretty and so delicate looking. Made me realise I do need to buy those hexagon shapes after all!! Good job it's pay day soon as I already have Memory Box dies to buy from looking at other peeps blogs. This is not only an addictive hobby but proving to be an expensive one too!! On the plus side like eating ones greens up I do use all my snippets up. Hugs Mrs A.

Beautiful card Shaz - so pretty and lacey. Pinks are VERY hard to photograph in my experience. Sorry you are not well, thinking of you :-)
