My desk as left last night. There are a few things going on here! On left brushos not put away as want to use again. Middle is a Sympathy Card in make, scene was brusho, tried one thing - didn’t work, so tried another idea or three!
I don’t give up easily and finally happy with end result.. or think I will be. It’s funny 😂 it’s only a biscuit card background, but really fight to make it something I’m happy with! Two spray bottles at back used and on right are more brusho backgrounds with texture paste on them. TH Mosaic stencil which is lovely - but an annoying tag width (am I only one who dislikes this?). Thus I’ve added extra on side and really not noticeable, except at this angle. The one on far right has glitter on it as well, not sure what they’ll turn into, but do need a “Praying for You” Card. Very extreme right, almost out of sight are completed cards. Rest are usual suspects.
Cards completed, yes! two more Christmas now up to 43, but aiming for 80 or minimum of 70, want to gift some. These were begun on last weeks desks with brusho backgrounds, saw Kate's great offtering on Rudolph challenge (here). This is my take on it thus far, made two but number of more planned with other dies. So used Di of Snippets Playground die of nativityscape by Sugar Pea. Really, really love it. Dies are great for using Snippets and as brusho coloured backgrounds are inside of cereal, frozen food, biscuit packets on white side it’s one cheap card! Base only new purchase, premade 5 x7”. "Silent Night" is a CCD.
Stunning escarpment, first one is What’s app from family there. Two slackliners in high winds, too! acc. to family, near Mt Kenya; lots of climbers, as it’s one of Aust top rock climbing locations.
Second one is Brooks Lookout also in Grampians National Park.
These are Ballarat’s Botanic Gardens, plantings began in 1860, early for Aust, after beginning of 1850’s gold rush.
Apologies for being bad blogger last week, very full on, and wheels fell off! God willing, will do all this week!
Well, that’s me for today.
Lord bless and keep you all safe, in all your ways,

UPDATE re drought and fires:
All fires under control, but not out, two lives lost in fires three hours north, and incredibly sadly 64 homes.
I’m very grateful yest found out my friend in middle of fires okay, house safe, but lost stock, grasslands, fences, outbuildings. Sad for them, but but not as sad as some, for video details on this here.
Fires still at watch and act level, with high winds, & low humidity, both negative factors.
Praise God - some good rain in SE Qld and some in northern NSW. The farm I showed last week which experienced a dust storm had 4mm, 1/8 of inch. Much, much, more needed so I’m praying and fasting on, till drought breaks I think, it was for month of Oct, called by interdenominational church group. I may do as long as required. Think it’s my responsibility as a Christian.
Thought for the Day:
Came across this verse in Isaiah during week, it's one of God's promises to those who love Him.
2. Bread and most of all "sure waters".
Claiming that, and praying much for those who are struggling, that in midst of it they will seek the help of the Father Who is only ever a prayer away.
