Thanks, dear LLJ! )
Those who would like an update of Julia and her Acoustic Neuroma, post surgery please read her recent post here. Please keep praying for her, brain surgery of this sort is slow recovery. Pray also that her recovery will be complete.
Just scraping in for Scrappy Mo's challenge, see below!
|This lovely 6 x 6" cardstock came to me by courtesy of Yvonne of Phoebez blog. Admiring her cards, I asked her where she bought her lovely cardstock from? Off cuts she said from a Dutch paper mill. Of course we live no where near a paper mill, so when she offered to post me some if I paid for post cost, I gratefully accepted. Hard to get good foiled card here - so thank you, dear friend! Yvonne also enabled me to buy a new SB on its way here (see here). Bad me, of course Bizzy Bec's had them at such a good price, too good to miss out on!|
|I have shared this before but there are always new folks.. I don't have a scallop die to fit these LOTV stamps so I cut one and half silver smaller diecuts then cut it up on back to fit around as a fully scalloped edge. Cool, eh?|
|Image in centre, Darkroom Door Surfboards - emboss image in clear embossing powder + colour in with Versamark pen + add colour by colour the perfect pearls. Seal them with hairspray at the end. Used die SB polka Dots largest die. This one is going to UK so kept it fairly flat, safe to post then.|
|This image (A sketchy one by Sheena Douglas) was done the same way as the Darkroom Door surfboards, stamped on scrap of burgundy cardstock then added perfect pearls as above. I fussy cut it out, and glued it with silicone glue on the embossed card. The CB Snowflake EF had been smooched with blue ink then embossed and sprayed with shimmery mist. Snowflake (coloured with blue and silver ink) was one from RosA, + verse "For unto you this day ..."is a digi. |
My entry for Scrappy Mo's Christmas card challenge - aka Rudolph day (you've until today's end).
Yes, they have been bogged and the Army came to the rescue.. they just happened to be passing in the middle of the desert, pretty good, eh?

As I write this they are just north of Marla heading to Alice Springs and Uluru (the rock).
|This one reminds me of a Namatjira painting my dad painted and we had in our loungeroom as kids.|
|Spectacular mesas +++ God's creation is amazing!|
|Footprints in the salt of Lake Ayre, largest saltwater lake inland South Australia. They walked in as far as they could, till started to sink in sand ..|
|The hugest Sturt Desert Peas flowers I've ever seen and Rob too - she said each blossom was 10cm long, ie 4". Just growing out in wild of sandy/ mud flats. Popped up with recent rains, see caking of ground as it dries.|
|To left is their rig, the end of their four wheel drive caravan, shows they've been at the famous Pink Roadhouse at Oodnadatta. They camped out the back where there was a caravan park, and really great hot showers!|
Please say hi - to let me know you've been by!
May God bless your day wherever you maybe!
