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.

A New Award ~ Simply Inspiring!

Simply Inspiring!

Announcing the first recipient of the new award, Simply Inspiring!

I've heard it said that behind every dark cloud there is a silver lining. The bloggers I want to acknowledge with this award are people who are not shy to demonstrate their faith through their crafts. It is evident in their creativeness and by their very inspiring works of art, also known as cards. I totally believe that our Creator has blessed such individuals with an extra dose of artistry. Oh, you may not think you are an artist but I have come to recognize the hand of God in people's lives. I see how He works and uses everyday things to bless us.

These creative people are able to take crafting elements -- simple items like glue, cardstock, ribbon and sparkles, and fashion a lovely card that speaks words of kindness, hope, joy, peace and love. They may find inspiration for their work in scripture verses and carry that vision through to the completed card. And since every good and perfect thing comes from above, through this award I am letting them know that their efforts have not gone unnoticed. Thank you for sharing your heart and God's love through your beautiful cards.

Please join me in congratulating the first recipient of the Simply Inspiring! award...

Congratulations, Tammy! Thanks for all you do.

Note to Visitors:
Spend some time browsing through some of Tammy's cards and you will see why she is deserving of this award.
If you or someone you know qualify for the Simply Inspiring! Award by meeting the criteria described HERE, please let me know. This is just one small way of recognizing special people who bless us with their creative designs.

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!
