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

More Spellbinder Majestic Labels 25

Hullo there everyone,
Just a quick post to share the cards started on my desk last week, as wont be posting this week for WOYWW, have others to share as well so will be posting again sometime towards end of this week. An update for those who were praying for the two cyclones that hit the end of last week, Lam in Northern Territory in fairly isolated area, and also Marcia in Northern Queensland. It has never happened before that two category 5 (highest category) crossed Aust. coast within hours of one another. Marcia caused a lot of damage.. some of which is only now being discovered. 
Mercifully most of the rain did not head south and down our way. It amazingly dissipated! We frequently get tropical lows from such cyclones. It was forecast for much flooding up north. It never eventuated, so the LORD was very merciful, answered prayer indeed. We, and north of us, have had goodly falls of rain but not flood worthy.

Steps of how this and cards below were made, are on this post here.. or scroll down, with Spellbinder Majestic Labels 25.
Psalm 91:1 is appropriate at all times "He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High shall rest in the shadow of the Almighty."
Psalm 91 is also called the Christians life Insurance Policy if you read it through you will see why :D Stamp is current, or relatively so - Copyright 2006, bought on Ebay few years ago - by Stampabilities, GR1114. Butterfly is Pippi from Memory Box and embossed only, very lightly, the vellum underneath then trimmed around it with hand scissors.
Stamp on this card and one below are by Stampendous from 1994,  so probably not available, I have been stamping for 25 years. This verse Revelation 21:3,4 " God Himself shall be with them... He will wipe away all tears from their eyes" - what a precious hope - it is for a sympathy card, and the other three are for birthdays. The verse, " the LORD bless you and keep you", is from Numbers 6:23,24 and has the reference on it but wouldn't fit so did not include it in stamping. These blue ones were inked with Brilliance inks an so could emboss them too as well as the purple Versafine.
All three together, had already posted the one shown last week to Qld. It was not popped up as high as these layers as it had to go through the post, will be hand delivering these three.
A card for an Oriental Stamp Art (OSA) weekly challenge and it was a layout challenge, I used the SU Sprinkles for the top lot of stamping, various daisy stamps including kanji are from Artneko Spring set 2014/2015. The three strips of a card were left over from the labels 25 cards, so really why made it. Ink was DI Rusty Hinge, and also coloured edges with it and the fine cord.
What a blessing it is... to have hands to craft and crafty goodies to use to encourage or bless others :D
Thanks so much for popping over for peek and chat... 
It is really appreciated even if am very slow to reply at times.
