About Spelling

If you follow my blog or know me at all, you will soon realize that I spell certain words differently from what you are used to seeing on most web sites. This is because I am Canadian and I am a spelling NUT. It drives me crazy when things are misspelled. So naturally, it would rub me the wrong way to purposely leave out letters from words that I know need them. Canadian spelling is actually a blend of British and U.S.

He Is Risen

The Old Rugged Cross

Here is the one and only Easter card I made this year. Today is Good Friday. Sadly, it seems most people have forgotten the significance of this day. All the stores and services are open (in Michigan) and life is going on as if Good Friday were just another day.


For the past several weeks, I've been thinking a lot about Easter cards. And although I have not had time to make more, I wanted to post this particular card. The cross stands for many things -- salvation most of all but also freedom and hope. I have not made any bunny cards, Easter baskets or coloured eggs (although I don't deny that those are fun). Unfortunately, my computer hard drive crashed and I have lost all my card designs, sizing layouts and verses.

Card Details
Card base is 5-1/2 x 5-1/2" cardstock.

The Cross
I created the cross on my Gypsy using the "George" cartridge. The cross is shadowed in dark brown with black added in some areas of the shadow. I also added the "nail holes". I positioned the cross laying on its side as a reminder that the cross no longer stands.



The title "He Is Risen" is what it's all about, so I made the letters quite large.
The font used is from Winter Frolic. The frame is from Gypsy Wanderings.

I would like to wish you all a blessed and wonderful Easter.

About Me

My photo
I guess you might call me a "right brainer", loving all things creative. Cardmaking is the perfect hobby for me as it allows me to be totally creative, combining design with poetry or verses I can compose myself. With Christmas being such an important occasion for cardmaking and crafting, I decided to create a separate blog just for Christmas projects. "It's All About Christmas" will host all my Christmas items. "Gracenotes For Today" will still feature items every other occasion of the year. I hope you'll drop by often and stay awhile!
