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 September Anything Goes Challenge

(NBUS post just below, please scroll down. Thank you)

Firstly I want to apologise for being a really bad blogger at returning comments, it wont be any better for wee while either, but will do my best! Do appreciate you all though
A CAS card here today as did not have much time, made in an hour quite late at night last night, I had seen the idea on Pinterest, so knew where I was going which helped immensely. Didn't quite have right dies but didn't matter. Late at night is not ideal, but hey it was done! here is my September DT post.
Frame made with Cottage Cutz Stitched Ovals, as they fit perfectly into most of Spellbinder oval sets - bonus!
I cut the purple snippet first and made the largest Flora l oval. I then cut I think it was the third of the CC Stitched ovals to get the frame. I've found these are totally interchangeable with my SB oval dies, like the spellbinder ovals never are!
As you can see I popped the frame up on mounting tape. Decided to leave base card un-embossed. I normally emboss but was on a schedule here! Cut two Nellie Snellen Fanciful flourish (Small) and joined them in middle. Cut Vivienne butterfly die in the firm Parchment cardstock, coloured a thin sheet for underneath the butterfly, which I fussy cut out.
Shaped the wings with a pencil, rolling it around it, then popped them up on pop dots and added some bling. Card mounted on same card as top and declared finished. Wanted greeting but nothing looked right so left it plain
Thanks so much for popping over for peek and chat.. you are really appreciated!
May God richly bless your day wherever you may be!

Yes I have a digital blog too as have gone back to doing digital tutorials again and joined a lovely group based in France...good for the brain using numbers and plugins in my paint shop programme...take care.hugs.xxx ANNIE XX

Di said...

Wow Shaz- how beautiful! Plenty of pretty detail yet CAS at the same time. I love the colours you've used and the butterfly is so, so delicate in that pale lilac!

It's great to see you much better and in the Playground with us. Now, the panel die on offer at the bottom of my Sunday post (along with the butterfly die) is actually not from me. You'd need to hop over to Liz's blog and help celebrate her 100 followers to play for that honey. My prize this week is the Spellbinders step die set that I used for my own snippets card.

Hugs
