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

Our Daily Bead Design ~ Sponging or Stencils

Over at  Our Daily Bead Design the challenge for Sponging or Stencils is on, so here is an entry in for this week. I had to make a card for a friend who has just had very major surgery in Sydney and so decided to use this verse from ODB. Had this white rose 3Ded but not carded for while so it came in handy too. I pray much for my friend, Gail, that the LORD will bless her with His healing and merciful Hand. The LORD is indeed "our Strength and Song".. "For without Him we can do nothing"!
Marianne die for the frame with ODB stamp and sponged around the die before trimming it and remounting it again for strength, adding the 3D rose. The folder is Swirls by Embossaliscious, extra large one which I cut down cause I loved it so much. I sponged the ink all over it to highlights and at side too. The curved border die is by Spellbinder, favourite Lala Land Filigree corners.
 Things very busy this weekend and into next week so will return comments as able.
May God bless your day everyone and thanks so much for all your wonderful encouraging comments, too.
