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

Happy Australia Day +Christmas cards - Rudolph Challenge @ Scrappy Mo's

Hullo there everyone ..  happy Australia day, Australia! .. yes it is our national day today
May God watch over and keep this land, and bless all who dwell here, with the hope and joy of His salvation.
However as it is after 25th of the month, I am sharing some Christmas cards for Scrappy Mo's Rudolph day Challenge. You have until the 31st of the month to join in by making one card over at ScrappyMo's - and the prize is a beautiful Memory Box die. 
A great way to get a head start on cards for this coming Christmas :) YAY!
This is really snippets ++++card - stamped the central image many months ago by masking an old tree stamp bought second hand. The greeting is digi and attached onto ribbon with extended tag die.
The theme over at Our Daily bread is use old and New .. well this is a very old LOTV image which ties in perfectly with the ODB stamp in embossed gold stamp from Christmas Flourish set. the Ultimate Crafts Embossing folder bought on sale after Christmas had a first try today and think it is my new favourite folder (called Christmas Tradition).
Well, thanks for popping over - and staying for a peek and chat.
May God bless your day where ever you may be.

Two really lovely cards, Shaz! That LOTV image is so pretty. I am so sad that they discontinued the art pads now.

The first one is stunning!

Love the gold trees! I think I might have that stamp. I need to remember how pretty it is embossed! Love the sweet birdhouse card too!

Brenda said...

Hello my friend! Your tree card is fabulous! I so love those trees, they are so pretty done in the gold. I also love the sentiment, perfect for the Christmas season as people tend to forget just what the holiday really is all about. Your sweet birdie card is just beautiful!! I love that image and the embossing you have used on both cards. The touch of gold is beautiful on that one too. I am all about having Christmas cards done ahead of time! lol Take care Sharon and sending blessings your way! Hugs, Brenda
