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

August Christmas Challenge - GDT for Rudolph Day!

Hullo there everyone!
A great privilege today as sharing with you my first card for the Guest Designer for Scrappy Mo's Christmas challenge - Rudolph day which runs from the 25th of each month to the end - in this case the 31st of Aug.
As Mo is in Canada you have extra time if you're in different time zone, as I am!
As I'm still not well, my goal was easy if possible. Took the verse already made up from from snippets in my Christmas bits box, "For unto You is born this day in the city of David, a Saviour, which is Christ the LORD", from Luke.
I like the One Who is the real reason for Christmas to be on every single card  I make, that's the whole point.
Next goal was to use "neglected" dies. I found in my box of tricks a a new- bought-on-sale "American Crafts glitter card" in 6" x 6" pad. Decided to try this and love it. It is fab! So thin, cuts well and glitter stays put.
Used it on the Martha Stewart leaf punch, Memory Box Piestra die, Memory box bauble die.
So added ribbon, bling and silver thread and that was it! you can see glittery bits better on this photo.
Well, short and sweet from me here today as still recovering (see previous post - if you didn't know I have been very ill).
I keep forgetting how slow I have to take things. I maybe slow at returning your very kind comments too. 
Lord bless you and keep you all.
