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

Pop Up Slider Card + WOYWW + Mo's Christmas Challenge

This post is abbreviated as blogger ate it twice now.
Joining up with Scrappy mos Rudolph Day Christmas Challenge. It runs till 31st March.
Pop up slide card for protype on Technique.
Here tis. Both ways like normal 5 x7 card then popped and slide it out. 
It’s actually an upcycle of a previous years bought card. 
Showing close up I’ve verse inside the card, I particularly liked that and was glad to use it.
My desk. I’m joining up with WOYWW
Time poor especially after wrestling with blogger, so this will be a record short post. May struggle to comment too as will have limited data.
It’s in halfway mode of getting ready to make Mister Six’s birthday card in April, where has it all gone!?? There’s an assembly going on which will be revealed in next week’s post, God willing! I will also find again the link to the easiest by far video on it, took me ages to find it. So will show, all being well with blogger, a step by step.
Lastly to the Aussie shots, they’re taken by BiL family south of where I live, and inland in a bit - some of our lovely country side.
Happy WOYWW everyone, hopefully will get to link up and not sure of your time zone either. I’ll be in big smoke, hope to meet up with Sandra De and RosA, for those WOYWWers who know them, on Friday all being well.
Thanks for popping over for a peek and chat and may God bless your day where ever you may be, 
hugs Shaz in Oz.x
Thought for the day- in the midst of trial or in a day where the sun of encouragement is simply hidden, we can trust as a little child in our great God. We can rejoice in the things we can be certain of, and look in faith for Him to eventually sort out the rest. 
Praying  for those who maybe struggling. 
Sending prayer🙏🏻 🤗 hugs. X

Such a beautiful card Shaz, so it seems strange to be thinking of Christmas already. I really like that verse too. It’s the only thing that’s really important doesn’t it? Knowing that the Lord is always there and someone we can turn to in times of struggle and in times of great joy. Wishing you a lovely day my friend. Blessings, Betsy

Was just thinking yesterday on the very same verses from Habakkuk that you added with this post, and had already put together a short draft with it to post at a later time. Always a blessing to have the Lord bring things like this into our paths, confirming it to us all the more. I will go ahead an post mine also, thanks for sharing this.

I had intended to start on Christmas by now, but after a big hike in the postage rates, my posting list is due for some heavy pruning very soon. Lovely card, Shaz and I hope you have a great week. xxx Maggie (Silvercrafter) #8

I really like the verse inside the card and may borrow it for my Christmas cards. Lovely card and am well acquainted with Blogger eating up or just rearranging what I try to post. Have a great day! Hugs.

Such a simple but so effective verse. Thanks for sharing Shaz. It's a fun card altogether.
Blogger does give us a head ache now and then - more now at times.
Enjoy yourself out with the girls - hope you have lots of good chatter ready to have over tea and a bun. Remember us to them.
Take care my friend - God Bless

cute nativity and I do love the sentiment on the inside too.
sorry to hear you have had so much trouble with posting, glad it finally worked for you.

Tracey@Hotchpotchcreations said...

Beautiful countryside shots Shaz, sorry to hear you also have been plagued by blogger and it's changes. Hope it will all be sorted for you soon. Great way to reuse that card by the way, I always take off those embellishments and cut out useful things before I recycle those that I do not keep. Take good care and enjoy your meet up.
Happy WoywW Tracey #7

Lovely slider card, way too much work for me, but I love that you’ll do it for me! I agree about the verse..striking, actually.

Sorry to hear you are having such trouble with blogger. It throws you for a loop when things you count on don't work!

Your card is lovely and a great design too!
As always your photos of Australian scenery are breathtaking.

Thanks for taking part in the March Rudolph Days Challenge.
