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

Thank YOU to my Wonderful Encouragers - Blogaversary Candy!


Candy Now closed - Drew three winners - will post soon.


{EDIT - 01.11.13 -  plan was to draw candy today, 1st Of Nov. - but things are very busy till 12.11.13, plus not 100%, so will draw candy on that date. Hence candy is open for few days longer.}

Hullo there everyone - this blog soon has its third anniversary. On 01.11.10 this 'ere 'umble blog was started. I started it by accident (see first post here - a test run & it worked!!). So the LORD has blessed it.
Blessed by so many precious friends and wonderful encouragers, I really appreciate you very much so want to offer a teeny-tiny bit of crafty candy to all you wonderful folk who follow this blog.
Here is candy. Butterfly is sample of one on offer.
 **Joy butterfly die is embedded in foam, cuts beautifully. See card with die cut here .
**Country Companions Friends stamp, cute and versatile. ** Pearls to embellish!
Candy can to go overseas, as is very light, so this is for ALL this humble blog's Wonderful Encouragers, that is, ALL those who have joined this blog.
1. please leave a comment on this post below 
2. then put (if you would be so kind) put a link on your sidebar; an extra entry in candy if you do so :D
Please do check you are one of the merry band, as on my first candy someone was drawn who was not, and had to redraw. New Wonderful Encouragers are very welcome to join following this blog!
Many thanks to one and all of you! What a pity I cant send some to all of you!
May the dear LORD bless your day wherever you may be,

Shaz, it is wonderful to see you back on WOYWW, even if it it a bit late. I do hope your health is improving, I have been asking the Lord for healing for you.
Not sure if I am included in the Encouragers, because I'm not sure how you define them, nor do I know how to put a link on my sidebar, but I am not candy hunting anyway, it is just great to have you around again.
Blessings

PS Did you know that your post had the date December 30, 2013 on it? Did I blink and miss Christmas?
that would be a crying shame.

Happy 3rd Blogaversary, Dear Shaz... keep sharing all your talents and goodness for many more years.
I'm not paper crafting just now as I'm doing so much with the quilt project so don't include me so someone more deserving can have your generous treat.
hope you are well. I'm off to Germany tomorrow to see the new arrival and co.

Apologies - accidentally deleted - read "Oh, want whats not to like about Candy!"

Betsy said...

Hi Shaz,
Congratulations on your anniversary! You are already on my sidebar but please don't feel you have to enter me in the drawing. I'm not a talented card maker like you and it's way too expensive for you to ship to me.
But...congratulations again my friend!
Blessings,
Betsy
