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 50 years ago, after a Beach Mission Service at the age of 12 years

Mo’s Christmas Challenge.with Beccy’s Nativity.

         Hi there everyone, can’t believe it’s nearly March, soooo not ready! 🙃

       The second Rudolph Day of 2020, at Scrappy Mo’s from 25th to 28th! A short month this month. So popping in quickly to share with you my card... it’s one I made earlier but not had time to share... have more in the wings too but no time to photograph but will soon.

This image is beautiful one of Beccy’s here in Oz, see link HERE! Don’t you love this image? It comes black outline or coloured in nicely as I’ve used here, I love that time saver! Joining over with Beccy’s Feb challenge too Here! And as it’s NBUS (Never Before Used Schtuff) joins in Darlene’s challenge Here!

I love this verse too Luke 2:12 it’s one I bought years ago from Karen over at WAW, but don’t think it’s available anymore. 

The lovely corners are actually from SB Magnificent Square die cut and cut down more than usual till I was happy. The border was done with an edge of rectangle scalloped die by XCut. The Blue card is embossed in Disc holly EF. Silver ribbon and the card is done. As used Snippets will pop over to Snippets playground here! 
Also Aussie photo..
Here is a bit of sunshine on walk the other day, we've had more rain than sunshine though in Feb. Over 500mm, or half a metre, or 20 inches.. want some? Some places up north out west would love it.. so praying it there!
Short and sweet today.. ❤️❤️
May our wonderful loving Father God bless your day wherever you maybe, and keep you and those you love safe, thank YOU especially if you take time to comment.
Prayer hugs, 
Shaz in Oz.x 
Thought for the day:
I think this one is clear and simple... if I am ever in need of help, I simply believing  must cry out to my God... and He will hear and strengthen me within!
What great gifts are ours when we simply accept God at His word.
Men lie, we all do... but God, never! He is true no matter what. I am so grateful for the Lord.
I know I would not be here today but for His faithfulness to do just this “..strengthen me with strength in my soul”! 
Thank YOU, Lord!

Sweet card, love the ones that color up quickly but look so great!

Betsy said...

I love your beautiful cards my dear Shaz. Isn't it wonderful to know that our Father in Heaven will never, ever leave us or forsake us? I know who I can trust and it's not the leaders of this nation I live in. I trust in the Lord. (And my husband. :-) Ha!)
Have a wonderful Sunday, trusting in Him.

Anne said...

Such a lovely card, I alway adore how you layer up pieces and add textures! A great colour choice too, very serene. Love the photo too! Hopefully we will go for a walk on the beach this afternoon, (okay, 'arvo' in Aussie speak!), but we shall need to wrap up warm... and no thank you, we have enough rain of our own! Psalm 138:3 is such a blessing, thank you!

Beccy said...

Your card is absolutely gorgeous Shaz, I love the blue and silver colour scheme. The little corners you added behind the image are beautiful and frame the panel perfectly. I also really like the scalloped strip along the bottom... lots of lovely sparkle! Beautiful.

Fabulous card Shaz, love so much how the scallop and the corners matches the blue! The image is delightful!
Big hugs!

Brenda said...

I see dear Sis that you had a card ready so you could play in the challenge, so happy that you didn't have to rush around trying to get one made. I love this card! The image is just the sweetest and I really need to get me some of Beccy's images. I love the embossed background and those little corner designs to frame out the nativity. The sparkly scallop strip is the perfect finishing touch. That is a beautiful Aussie photo you got on your walk. Sounds like you have loads of rain, it's either feast or famine with the rain. All our snow melted and then we got over an inch of rain, so lots of water all at once. Water laying everywhere out in the yard, so the dogs have to be taken out on a leash to keep from getting all muddy. Winds are to be high today, need that to help dry up all the "lakes" in my yard. Some nice sun will work too! I know when I am at my lowest and I cry out to the Lord, he always comes and strengthens my soul and I'm able to carry on. I don't know how people can go through this life without the Lord in their lives. I can even image! Love and hugs to you sweet sis, praying for you! Brenda
