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

Butterfly Challenge + Sarns Christmas challenge



Hullo everyone .. just a very quick post to put up some cards made.
First one is for Mrs A.'s Butterfly challenge this fortnight we need to have three elements in a row through centre on our card. So I have chosen the middle one - Wet embossing, Butterflies and Flowers.
This first card is part of background inked up on Friday (see here for how it was made) for the OSA challenge there was a card for inspiration, this card fits criteria there too.
 The stamps are by Artneko from the Spring set, inked in Versafine with iridescent embossing powder. Mounted on black embossed snippet inked up some snippet of card to cut out two butterflies with matching Big and juicy hydrangea ink pad.
Next lot of cards are for Sarn's Christmas Challenge called Rudolph day, over here! requirement is there must be two of them so here are my offering this month, I am bit behind so did extra!
 Embossing and cuttting folder is by Marianne dies, used up snippets of card with holly from Joanna Sheen Signature die. Finally used up two of the "Joy" on my desk for months now !! (three more to go :D) Second ones the stamp is from Our Daily Bread heat embossed with red embossing powder.
I will comment as able but time online needs be limited, I will do my best. However I really want to thank you so very much for popping over for a peek and chat. May God bless your day wherever you maybe.

Your Christmas cards are very pretty. Like the crisp look of the colours on them. They pop against the white!

The butterful card is so pretty too. I have not done mine for this time yet as i do not have any embossing with me...not wet or dry stuff.
Will have to make my card once i am home!
