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 + Watercolour Penny Black Trailing vine

Hi there! Popping in with a quick post. Another on mobile, lots going on here, and so little time to blog. Things I’m making I can’t share most of them.. for coming birthdays, except today’s, a friend who doesn’t look at my blog. My darling dad isn’t at all well either which is a prayer point.
And it’s What is On Your Workdesk Wednesday for WOYWW.. so let’s pop over to Julia’s Stamping Ground  for desks of the world!    To my desk:
Some painting going on, on left pencils are water colour, Caran D’Ache .. so using them as base, paint tin on right was for another project, not this one, but using topping with glimmer very small paint colours in centre.
Assembling the card... trying to work out layout. Do you ever have a plan for a project or are you like I often am.. just jump in and see where it leads? I’ve made this PB stamp Trailing Vine a few times in other styles and today I wanted something different. So after spending time watercolouring the whole panel I cut it right down! Don’t you hate it when Die sets go walk about???.. that’s what my favourite ovals have done. Mercifully there’s a similar sized one in a card creator set SB. Here is the finished card.
Happy birthday is Elizabeth Crafts favourite, offset to left by .05mm. Cut in base of cream, then lay gold on top and deep sheen blue on top, and used double sided tape on back for easy adherence. Lacey die is a CCD... also a NBUS. 😊 Corners fav. Lala land filigree corners, EF is Embossalicious A4 Orchid? Folder
Now to Aussie Photos taken this afternoon on walk around hills then creek which runs along for while. Shows a winter sun setting. God’s glorious creation... and the flower looking down to creek is a flowering tree, Bauhinia.. a very pretty tree commonly called butterfly tree here in Oz, because it’s leaves are shaped that way... but China in origin.
Thanks so much for popping over for a peek and chat. I’ll do my very best to return your kind comments. And appreciate your patience and kindness in this busy period.
May God bless your day, wherever you maybe!
Hugs and prayers , Shaz in Oz.x

The verse for today, I read this chapter in today's chapters (read four chapters day, you read through Bible in a year, good to do each year). I love Isaiah and this verse in particular. I need God’s strength at the moment through each and every day. It is there for us, if we but ask.
