Well I managed it. I have completed the first challenge that I said I was going to undertake during 2012.
Over on the Gothic Arches blog there is a two-weekly prompt which you have to interpret in your own creative way, the only stipulation being that it must be in the shape of a Gothic arch.
The first 2012 prompt was 'New beginnings' and here is my entry...
Gothic Arch challenge - New beginnings.
The birds are from a 1981 children's book, the text letters are K&co and the bracket stamp Sassafrass Lass.
See you soon for more creative goodness!
