Spot The Mistake - We Have A Winner!

Thank you ALL for playing my last round of Spot The Mistake. As much as I revel in the fact that Spellchecker finds almost NO mistakes when I run it against my posts prior to publication, it is not smart enough to tell me I've used the wrong word. If the wrong word is spelled correctly, I am not alerted. That is why I need YOU! I really hate it when I read something I've posted and see all the boo-boos.
So without further ado, I am pleased to pronounce the winner of this round of Spot The Mistake is ... drum-roll, please ... our very own Mary Dawn! Yay! Woo-hoo! The crowd goes wild!

Mary Dawn, one of my first beloved three (maybe four) readers, has won this NOT because she has stuck with me all this time, but because she is a freakin' over-achiever! I thought I had one error, but she found FOUR! FOUR! I am so embarrassed.

Here they are (I just had to copy her comment - she is THAT good!):

--> This immediately set of the "this sounds like work" alarm in my brain, and I stopped. (set OFF...alarm) ~ yep, got me there

--> I opted for no image on this one, because the paper is pretty, and busy, so why bother. (should end with a ?) ~ yes, it should have

--> I this version, I did a particularly poor job attaching the papers to the card base, and I am out of alignment. (IN this version....) ~ this is the one I had in mind

--> ... which I ever so cleverly disguised by sponging on some more of the Dusty Durango ink to make it look like I meant to do that. (should be ever-so-cleverly, but that's just nit picking, isn't it?) ~ Nope, not nit picking at all! I actually thought about adding the hyphens, but, well, I did not.

So Mary Dawn, I shall rummage in The Other Room this evening and select some goodies for you.

Thanks, again, for playing, everyone! Now, my laptop wants to install updates and re-boot, and I need to leave for The Day Job. Thanks for stopping by!


  1. Do I get a prize for finding an error in this version? :>) The paragraph starting the "I this version..." Think maybe it should be "In...." Hope you have a great day.

  2. i love to win! and i didn't set out to find 4 mistakes, but i couldn't leave them!

  3. Congratulations Mary Dawn. A worthy winner.
    This blog cracks me up. If I don't come here and have my fix each and every day, I am without purpose.
    Thanks for making life so happy for me. xxxxx

  4. Oh, dear. Now I am paranoid to post at all...just knowing you, Kristie, and Lauren read my posts and you are all grammar whizzes.

    I left you another award. Tell your tweeter fans :)

  5. For making me smile every day I have left you an award on my blog here


I'd love to hear what you really think! :-)
