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

Favourite Creations of 2013 ~ Aka Debby of Scrapjourney.

Hullo there everyone .. this year has been mixed for me but in spite of it all I have been very, very blessed and able to complete a goodly amount of crafting etc.
I love and really admire her work and did attempt a card in 3d style like her's (see here) but her's are so good decided not to put it in.
 
So here goes.. very hard to pick and Debby kindly said one extra or so was ok! :D Links are embedded in titles below, if you want to see how was made.

Thanks so very much for each of you who have been my Wonderful Encouragers for 2013 and before. 
You really do make it all worthwhile!
I thank God for every single one of you and pray His blessing and keeping upon you in 2014. And in every day He gives us, may we draw closer to Him, or if we know Him not - may it be the year, week or day we do come to know Him as our own Saviour.

A special welcome to two folk who joined this month.. but as they are Google plus folk I cant join their blogs.  They are Linda Knox and Willie. Although I think worked Willie's out and joined her's :D

Shaz, oh so beautiful, each and every one. Your colors are so very calming. Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful! Happy New Year young lady!

Sharon, you picked some really good ones of the past year's cards. I would have been hard pressed to pick just one out of all these...each is so beautiful, yet unique in the style you created. Your calligraphy cards are always so outstanding and wonderful. It always makes me think of the old illustrated manuscripts that I see in pictures. Mini masterpieces. TFS & a very Happy (and hopefully healthy too!) New Year. Looking forward to seeing your lovely work in 2014. Hugs

I have been enjoying seeing everyone's favorites. While I know I haven't seen everything you've done in the past year I have to agree that these are the best of the best. I think my favorite of this bunch is the Stampscapes card at the top. Very lovely!

All gorgeous cards Shaz! It is great to go back and have another look at our creative journey.

Thanks for stopping by and peeking at my creative journey for 2013 too.

Not sure what challenge you were looking at re my 2014 Resolution of playing the SCS Fan Club monthly Christmas challenge as this month's challenge is "Everything old is new again" and not "Peace". You have to be a Fan Club ie: paid member of SCS to be able to view these challenges. Can you drop me an email and let me know what forum you were looking at? I know SCS have had problems with that sweet home ideas dot com website where people have linked to that particular website in the forums - trouble is that that website keeps getting hacked (but not SCS) and because there is a link on their website to a hacked website, it makes firewalls throw up warnings. SCS is OK to use - but they keep needing to delete the links that people keep putting in. It's driving them NUTS!

Happy New Year Shaz - wishing you good health and happiness.
