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

WOYWW + Bugaboo Nativity

Hi all, Just quickly popping in for WOYWW for Workdesk Wednesday over at Julia's place!
My desk, post is nice and short as Julia likes it. First is current desk, midstream writing in cards - almost done now.
 On this desk here, in October actually was colouring these images
Only one has been made into card, which has travelled across to Whistler.
 Love these images, used Prismacolours, rectangle dies are a CCD set.
 To Aussie shots - sunshine at weekend, there are some surf board riders if you scroll in, enjoying the waves.
 Below: On walk around our local beach, Sunday arvo.
 Hope you're well, folks, I'll try pop by everyone who calls, just doing my best at moment.

Such a sweet and cute card too. I love the image on it and the sheet of others too. Gorgeous Aussie shots you shared with us. I want to thank you again for the beautiful card you sent me. I will frame it and treasure it as a gift of our friendship.

Hi Shaz, great to see photos of such gorgeous scenes as it is so cold and snowy here. Hope you get the rest of your cars off soon. Happy WOYWW Sarah #12

I really love your Christmas card design and your warm sunny pics are just what I needed this week. We’ve had more than 10” of snow!
Hugs,

It was the list that made me smile! I think we all have handwritten lists of names for Christmas cards, even in these days of tech wizardry :-D. The card is great fun, the image made me smile as did the beautiful shots of the sea again, it's pelting down with rain here at the moment!

I adore your little image - so cute and I don't normally go for cute but this is so lovely. Perfect!
Thanks for the Aussie picture, it certainly warmed me up this morning - even though most of the snow has gone overnight it still feels dark and gloomy because of all the rain that is coming down. Prefer it to snow anyhow.
God Bless

Hi Shaz, you look exceptionally well organised and those stamped images are so cute. The finished card is lovely too. And, of course, I enjoyed the Aussie photos. Have a wonderful week ahead. Hugs, Elizabeth x #23

Laurel Kerr said...

Stunning card Shaz. I find the hardest part of card making is writing inside as I always make a mistake..loz

cotnob said...

A super card Shaz, such a sweet image and lovely embossed background.
It looks like you are going to have fun colouring up all of those cute images.

Hi Shaz, lovely card! Enjoy colouring the other cards, I had fun this week with colouring! Thabks for stopping by! Have a lovely week, and enjoy your warm temperatures, whilst we shiver in the cold, Heather #6

Lois Wyche said...

A beautiful card. Wishing you the best.

BJ said...

Oh Shaz that John quote (KJV) is the one I always remember despite being a NIV reader. I saw it in a "questionable" book on astrology way back before I did Alpha and realised astrology wasn't the way so to speak. It's the "comprehended it not" which has stuck and is different to most other quotes.

That said love the card and the greeting, super job and thanks for the visit today. BJ#10

Angela Radford said...

Mrs.D said...

Hi Shaz, I late again visiting, but I love your paintings for Christmas cards, and because I am late, I also saw your beautiful layered stamping that you uploaded, two lots of super craft for one visit, really blessed.
Thanks for visiting my desk, and nice comments, we are looking forward to living in Lincoln, but not actually been there yet, planning a visit tomorrow.
I can't imagine I will be blogging next week, so have a blessed and peaceful Christmas,
Love Chris #8

Anne said...

Hello Shaz. Sorry I'm so late. I was trying to get cards written yesterday. Messed up a bit and then felt really tired so just went to bed. Lovely card and the photos of sunny Australia are gorgeous after a very cold few days - though it has to be said I do like snow :-) Anne x 15
