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

Rejoice! He is not here, he is Risen as He said! + Snippets

 Miracles associated with the Death, Burial and Resurrection of the LORD Jesus. 
 "“When the sixth hour came, darkness fell over the
whole land until the ninth hour” (Mark 15:33)
** Rent in two! 
At ninth hour (or 3pm) "He gave up the ghost,... 
.... behold, the veil of the temple was rent in twain from the top to the bottom; and the earth did quake, and the rocks rent; " Matthew 27:51
  Temple curtain - entrance into Holy of Holies, no longer separated, but way is opened through Christ's sacrifice. 
This curtain was a foot or 30cm thick, torn from top to bottom.
 **Earthquake, and rocks rent!
 **Many graves were opened  
Matthew 27: [52] And the graves were opened; and many bodies of the saints which slept arose,
53] And came out of the graves after His resurrection, and went into the holy city, and appeared unto many.
(*note: came out of graves after resurrection of Jesus, however the graves were opened in the earthquake at Jesus' death. (Matthew 27:50 - 54) 
**Large Stone Rolled Away + the grave cloths empty!
Finding only an empty tomb, Peter & John looked in, saw evidence of a resurrected Saviour: 
The linen wrappings and face-cloth from Jesus’ body were lying there by themselves.
(Luke 24:1–12; John 20:1–9)
 ** Resurrection and Resurrected Saints 
the Resurrection of the LORD Jesus was the cause of resurrection of saints.
The resurrected saints did not walk in Jerusalem until Sunday. To remain ceremonially clean for coming Sabbath,  the Jews could not greet their departed loved ones. 
What a monumental Miracle!. 
 It showed the power over sin and death was defeated by the death and Resurrection of the Lord Jesus - He was indeed the Son of God and He defeated Satan's power
He IS the Resurrection and the LIFE!
The miracles connected with the cross provide evidence that the One crucified was God's dear Son. They give indisputable proof. 
Whoever believes ... the New Testament writings, has to be convinced by
these amazing wonders. 
The cross . . .
there is no other way!
May the LORD richly bless you all this Resurrection day!
.. as we remember our LORD Jesus' great gift and sacrifice for us all... how He loves us! 
I would just like to quickly (VERY) to share two cards done a month ago. 
So far behind!
Brushos, bit of spattered masking fluid, Prim Poppy MB Die.
Thanks IO top edger die set. Dry embossed rectangle stitched die. Snippets used in both card
 Left over scene with Stampscapes and Darkroom Door Gum tree set .. for another card still not shared, but didn't use this image! Coloured with DI, ink dusters, coloured pencils. Corners are from SB Magnificent square set (cut in four adhered to back as corner). EF is TH Distressed wood grain, Thanks from CB Olivia Alpha set.
I'd like to link these cards up to the Snippets Challenge, as used lots here on all cards, and the challenges below!
You may or may not know - but Easter is held at the same time as the Jewish Passover Feast, as that was when Jesus was crucified. The Passover is usually held the closest first full moon, on nearest Saturday after the spring equinox, (21st of March, each year). (Jewish calendar, and way of telling time  is different to ours.)
As it turns out last night, Sat 31st, was a full moon and blue moon, so the Jewish Passover was held yesterday, and so these are two shots taken last night by Greg in Oz, one of our photography family members.

1. Word Art Wednesday - anything goes

Beautiful cards Shaz - I love the way you take the corners from the square - they are so effective in framing your scene.
As part of our Easter celebrations this year our church participated in an (adapted) Seder meal on Good Friday (which was the start of Passover) and it was wonderful to hear all the Messianic prophecies that are included in the ritual.

Sorry I’ve been absent for a while, mojo lost and a week of holiday in the sun with my mum, then lots of tv time during Easter. In Norway it’s tradition that the channels are showing lots of crime series with several episodes, so I did some of that too, and reading.
Your thank you cards are lovely. You’re great at making your own papers with inks and brushos.
