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

Black Ice meets Stampscapes contd, Watercolour Block Stamping + Snippets WOYWW + NBUS

 Yes, it’s Wednesday again and popping in with Desky share for WOYWW - What is On Your Workdesk Wednesday, over HERE 😁 at Julia’s.

Desk shows two A4 sheets cut into four, to make up 8 card. These exceptional papers have been in my stash for at least a decade and lovingly stroked every so often, their colours and gleaming glittery extras all made them special. 
They were eBay Freebies from an excellent seller back then called Flissybabes, in UK. I bought loads of mirri card, unavailable here, and in one order she put in these two glittery sheets along with three mirri cerise sheets as a bonus. I was one happy bunny. The card I’m CASE-ing is one in green white with gold, by Darnell 😊❤️🙏. Sent when I was poorly last year, it suits these images perfectly.
Here's completed card for Darnell's NBUS challenge over here!

 Sharing too varied birthday  cards as there are many birthdays in February and March! Mostly male cards too.

This card all snippets so jumping over to Snippets playground here, actually so is watercolour card as well.A cereal box makes great background card.

Firstly there are four of the Black Ice technique (see here). The first is like my last card for my darling dad there. This one is for a dear Nephew. The others are for different family members. All use a Disc. SU paper, except the bottom one for my uncle. I used a scrap piece of card layered with perfect pearls, firstly did dry embossing - unused when made.

Last card was the watercolour technique with tombows on ink black see here, background scrap card from cereal box, with double length brick embossing highlighted in ink.

Then two ladies birthday, first is embossed resist with unknown mauve/ pink perhaps SU inky colours, years in stash.

So ink up embossing folder, emboss.. and ta-da colour embossed.

Next card is also a stash piece done with alfoil layers over scrap cardstock, embossed in folder, then two alcohol inks turquoise and green. MB leaves die cut with Lawn Fawn HB stamp silver embossed.

Now to Aussie photos, the tiniest pineapple ever, it fits in my hand, it wasn’t attached well to plant, so insufficient nourishment. Taken the plant out now. Usually grow like one in front of it.

Still yum, here it is in pineapple patch. 
Then some seaside to cheer you up, bottom one at my sisters, and one down at our creek, that was such a beautiful day.

Had some lovely swims in between huge dumps of rain. Coast is all flooding, especially  north and south less so. Highway north still closed, sadly many lost homes at Lismore, friends included … hope Cathy at Cathy’s card place is okay, I must check. Had water in here, but through the roof.. not the ground.

So dealing with insurers, assessor’s, renovators, etc from deluge Downunder, not badly affected as some, in two rooms, but it’s certainly a to-do and time occupier. Life is never dull, but the LORD makes it all worth while.

Thanks for visiting especially, if you have time for a chat, I'll do my best to reciprocate, but mobile is bit tricky.

Prayer hugs, Shaz in Oz.x

Thought for the day:

“Without me, ye can do nothing.” John 14:5 

This verse comes in the abiding in the vine chapter 15, of Johns Gospel.

And  IN Christ we are able to do all things, out of Him, we are weak indeed. Of myself I have not strength, but in Him He is my ALL in ALL.

And thus Without the LORD Jesus I can do nothing.

My Jesus fills every void in my life.

He makes it complete.

In peace, in war, in the storms of life, Jesus is our Anchor, our Strength, our Stay, our Hiding Place, our Saviour and Friend.

If we but trust in Him - Faith changes things, WHEN it’s anchored in the Lord Jesus Christ..

Without Him,  faith is empty nothing. 

With Him, it’s everything.

Re prayer for Ukraine, I’m certainly praying along with many for Gods mercy upon all especially the innocents. For updates … if you’re on Telegram this is small channel, which has latest prayer needs listed, todays was to pray for orphans and those caring for them, bunkered down as best they can in Kiev.
