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

Christmas Card Duo from LOTV

Well, popping in with another quick post .. there are few challenges want to enter. 
It's the 25th of the month today so that is Sarn's Christmas challenge over here 
and Darnell has another *NBUS Challenge, I might just manage to sneak into! 
as well as Miss' playground of Snippets and Word Art Wednesday, wow think that is record for me!!
here is my humble offering... a LOTV Cute square set on my desk yesterday bought absolutely ages ago dont think they are made now. Called "Christmas Animals - decorations", and not used yet at all.
So here have inked up with ink dusters and ink the dies while still in the die, to give nice white outline. The lovely Bible verse is one of Karen who does the free Word Art Wednesday digi Bible verse each week and bought the Christmas digi set from her Etsy shop today, very cheaply at $4 for 10 digis. I like my Christmas cards to reflect the Real Reason for the Season and loved this verse in particular.
Used CB snowflake EF, Spellbinder dies, Scalloped Labels 1, and Labels 4, bling and ribbon on one of them also some glitter on both but you cant see that. The NBUS was the LOTV squares and snippets from silver.
So everyone two more cards ready for the 25th December, 2014 - so that has to be good!
Thanks so much every one for popping over for a peek as chat, may God bless your day wherever you may be!  Shaz in Oz.x 
*NBUS - is "Not Used Before Schtuff" according to Darnell :D
