Attitude Blog Award

I never thought of myself as having "attitude" but apparently Peggy and Donna at Daily Grace Creations think my BLOG HAS.  Thank you ladies, for your kind comments and for selecting me as one of your five recipients of this award.

To accept this award, I have to list three things that make my blog unique. Then I have to pass it on to five new recipients.

What makes my blog different or unique?

1. The name. As a child, I disliked my name, thinking it was too old-fashioned. But as I matured, I learned that the word "grace" means "unmerited favour". Every day I am aware of the grace of God working in my life and I am so thankful for that.

   ALSO, "grace notes" is a musical term given to a small extra note in the music score that adds decoration and fun to the music. It's definition is:
~ Noun, music. A note not essential to the harmony or melody, added as an embellishment.
I never thought of it before but I see how the grace note adds attitude. My whole blog is a result of starting out making thank-you Notes. I am also a musician. So the name Gracenotes picked me, for many reasons!

2. I use the three C's in creating my designs: my Cricut, Cuttlebug and Computer.

3. Designs. I look beyond the obvious and find ways to give the Cricut shapes and phrases a Christian emphasis. An example of this is the Lighthouse Card. Another example is my Angie card. In other words, they are one-of-a-kind cards. I believe God inspires me with ideas. Sometimes I can look at a cut shape or phrase and immediately a Bible verse and design will immediately come to mind. I get very excited when that happens and can't wait to get working on the card.

And now for my five worthy recipients of this award:
Melissa, INKclinations

Thank you again, Peggy and Donna. I appreciate your encouraging comments and thoughtfulness.
Thanks to everyone for visiting and especially my faithful followers.

  1. Grace, Congratulations on receiving this award - you certainly deserve everything good life has to offer. And in turn, Thank you so much - I am honoured you chose me to pass it on to. By the way, I missed when you posted your "Reflect" birthday card - Wow - it is so awesome. Hope you don't mind, but I may have to scraplift this one LOL. It's gorgeous. Take care. T.
