Welcome! I began rubber stamping about 10 years ago but I always stayed "inside the lines" of someone else's design; however, after viewing the awesome creations on many other blogs, I'm finding the courage to "let 'er fly" and say "Wheee" along with 3-year-old Gabriel, the youngest of my 10. Want to step out of the box too? We can do it together. BTW, the name "Gracka" came from my granddaughter, Ainsley, when she was 6-months-old and tried to say Grandma. I loved it, and it stuck!
My previous years of card-making consisted of following directions or copying samples precisely. The cards were faithful reproductions of someone else's creativity, but never had my personal imprint. This is my first attempt at "breaking free"; my goal is that this will begin to affect the other areas of my life as well. As I learn to express my own creativity in my cards, I pray that I will exercise that same freedom in my daily life, and in my relationships with strangers, family, and friends, and most especially in the worship of my Lord.
