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 Summer Challenge in Winter ~ Downunder :D

(Sarn's cards down next post below...)
Well am just sneaking "last-minute-like" for this challenge ... over at Mrs A's Butterfly challenge.. it is summertime there!! I made this week ago but did not get around to posting it.. I had some "pixie post" arrive, with a yummy card from Miss. and one of those equally yummy PB butterfly stamps!! woo hoo! thanks so much Miss!

So that very day of the pixie post I embossed the stamp with iridescent embossing powder and Versafine on vellum..... then coloured the butterfly with Sakura Gelly Roll pens which are iridescent too, and fussy cut it out, tried to pick summery colours. Sprayed with glimmermist a background for the card..

Here is the finished card with Stylised Flowers cuttlebug folder, and Spellbinder Petite ovals and stamped greeting. So fluttering quick smart over to the flutterby challenge .. see here.
May God bless your day everyone and thanks so much for all your wonderful encouraging comments, too.
