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

Stencilled Oxides with Glimmer Paste + Scrappy Mo’s Christmas Challenge

 Well, well! I actually started this post over a month ago.. where have I been? *Short answer = “busy”. ๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ˜ƒ Doing extra things, including extra time of prayer each morning, in times like these more prayer is needed. That is for sure.. plus other demands on my time. So here I am sharing as the title said stencilled oxides and glimmer paste… love how the colour underneath layers up and shine through. Of course cannot see shimmer in photos!

Stamp unknown, red rubber set bought on eBay unmounted.  Masked off that section when doing the two layer, ink then paste stencilling. Linking over to Scrappy Mo’s Christmas Challenge here! And as that stamp “Star of Wonder, star of night, Guide us to thy perfect light” is a NBUS..  Off to the NBUS challenge.. here - yippee!

The die cut and stencil are both MB discontinued.

This is card made for a dear couple’s wedding, hindered a little by COVID as groom’s parents, family et al, were in lockdown in Sydney, mercifully groom made it out before it happened.

This card has loads of shimmer in all of the layers but only tiny bit shows. Mixture of dies mostly, bar the fancy corners, are SB - but all disc., as is alphabet, it’s CB.
This is a teabag folding card if you want to see how it’s done look on this post HERE way back in 2012! The verse is by WAW, and SB fancy labels, square die is by Nellie Snellen, maybe available, not sure. It's for a very special friend's birthday, and I know she's received it already.

Just a few beach scenes to cheer you up, soo pretty …


and have loads more cards to share but no time. ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

Thanks so much for popping over especially if you’ve time for a peek and chat, your encouragement is greatly appreciated, I’m sorry I really struggle to reply on mobile device, even doing blog post is harder sometimes than other. It’s photos that are hardest. I’ll do my best to comment, but am reading posts .. and praying.

Thought for today

When we look around today it is so easy to be discouraged, as things do seem so topsy turvy. Folk, or more especially the media, are prone to cry like Henny Penny that “the sky is falling in”, or like the Aussie poem “We’ll all be Rooned said Henrahan, before the year is out!”

You know it’s been much darker in decades or millenia past eg Isaiah who penned verse below, died by being sawn in half in a hollow log, or as Hebrews 11 puts it “sawn asunder”, hounded to death for disagreeing with government of the day. 

We are apt to forget to count our blessings. So here is a verse I love and rediscovered to share, it's something we need to do often, be thankful and praise our Loving Father God. Especially praising Him for the grounding wisdom of His word!


O Lord, thou art my God; I will exalt thee, I will praise thy namefor thou hast done wonderful things; thy counsels of old are faithfulness and truth. Isaiah 25:1 

A hymn to cheer your heart to go with it... In times like these… we need an Anchor.. to hold us to the Solid Rock. Hymn link also here if not showing. https://youtu.be/j3jK3x3iMOM
