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 50 years ago, after a Beach Mission Service at the age of 12 years

Hullo there everyone. Well,  think WOYWW is on today. Julia is  just back from her sojourn in Spain... but y'know wot? I think  I had as many visits last week without Mr Linky coming to the party!  That shows the real strength of WOYWW! Anyway I do pray that Julia is fully recovered from her unexpected surgery. Just in case, here is Julia's blog at the Stamping Ground, it's home base for WOYWW- here .....
   Here without any more ado is my desk, to the left is the card I  am working on nearly finished..and yes! lots going on! 5 cards on order for Lee my lady who.likes fancy cards.. this card number 3. Two done and another started. :D with the digi paper on the left. Gumblossom stamps at the back are possibly to use with the gumblossom paper.
My ATC sent to Fiona@ Staring at the Sea
I have  three ATC's arrive, one from Regina M. Hamilton on Left - my PIF,and on right is one from Neet. I had one from Magret of glitterandglue but it is in such a safe place I cant find it at the moment -sigh.. sorry!
Just one card to share .. done my brothers birthday earlier in month done with Stampscapes, used with Adirondack ink and Ink dusters, and debossed piece of metal silver blue with CB folder Floral Screen. Stamp at bottom is SU Itty bitty banners.

I was thinking about you the other day, Shaz. We are gearing up for the Tour De France here, all great excitement. Yellow bikes everywhere and lots of decorated shops. It comes through town on 5th July. I must take some photos for you. We are hoping to watch.
