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

Thinking of You ~ New Britannia die ~ love it!

Hullo there everyone!
First of all a big welcome to my newest wonderful Encourager - Joanne from France (see here)- she is newbie so do take the time to pop over to her blog and encourage her too!
Here is quick and easy card to show for today. You have to love these new dies I have found - called Britannia dies. Such easy removal with its "Teflon-like" coating on the die. Bought this one on sale from Joanna Sheen, would love big one too but cannot justify it. Here it is with a Labels 8 Fleur de Lis by Spellbinder. The stamp verse is from my collection about twenty years old by Print blocks clear wooden stamp. Used EK Success Arrow Border punch with lovely daisy lace from stash.
My friend really needed the encouragement of this verse knowing that:
 "WITH God ALL things are indeed possible!" 
- what blessing this is to have in our daily walk with Him.

Also Spring has sprung here and here is our first bunch although we have had four or so more since this one! 

Many thanks every one for popping over for a peek and chat and may God bless your day wherever you may be.

Beautiful card Shaz! I think it's one of my absolute favorites that I've seen you do for several reasons. Namely, 1) It's my favorite color. 2) It's one of my favorite Bible verses. 3) The lacey effect is gorgeous.
Thank you for brightening my day!
Blessings,
Betsy

A beautiful card Shaz, and I so agree that Britannia dies are lovely to use.

Our 'Queen Elizabeth' rose bush is having a last flowering right now - until next year. It seems to be savouring the very last of Summer.

Hugs, Di xx

Sharon, so happy to see you are back into posting, and hope you have gotten all rested up, enjoyed your holiday, and things are back to normal. I love the Britannia sentiment dies. Haven't purchased any others yet (Mrs. A turned me onto the source..bless her enabling heart!). I'll have to check out the lattice, but have to recup from my stamp convention misdeeds. I really like this delicate lattice, and it's so pretty the way you used it on your card with the lovely lavender. Your roses are perfect specimens...bet they smell just as nice as they look too. How fun, you Aussies are going into summer, we Yanks going towards winter. I was just reading about why that is so, on some website I managed to stumble on. TFS & many hugs & prayers
