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

Bizzy Bec's "Anything Goes Challenge" Memory Box Prim Poppy

Hullo there everyone - well another blog post for the Design Team of Bizzy Bec's - Aussie Crafty Website Store! 
Bec has amazing prices on and you cant find what you want, Bec is only too happy to source it for you.
 Each month we have a Store blog challenge, Anything Goes! 
Please join us do - prize posted world wide, winner receives Mystery Prize - a die or stamp.
Now to my card, for dear Penny, as it's her birthday today too! On 5/5 :)
I inked up the bricked embossing folder with the Distress ink Antique Linen on the flatter side, so as emphasize the embossing with more dimension.
Thought this would be a brick fence in front of some poppies.

1. Cut two sets of red flower tops and *green stems (*cut 4) as there are only two flowers and one bud in the die.
2. *Double layered the green stems. Shaped the bud + flowers, with shaping tool, before mounting them with small foam squares + glue for doubled stems.
2. SB Elegant largest oval die (doesn't it look like lace? I love this one!) fits perfectly with Cottage Cutz Oval dies.

I have found these stitched Oval dies by Cottage Cutz also work with SB Fancy ovals as well, better than some of the SB plain ovals.
 Added HB garland die with some more red snippets.. love dies for snippets!

Thanks so much every one for popping over for a peek and chat!
May God bless your day wherever you may be.
