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

What a great idea for using leftover boxes. The cards are beautiful and will be loved by the recipients. Christmas is coming so quickly. Each year I try to focus even more on the true reason we celebrate. How blessed we truly are to have a Savior and Lord who loves us so much. Thank you for the reminder my dear Sister.
Blessings,
Betsy
