This weeks theme at Gothic Arches is “Friends”…our beautiful arch was made by this weeks hostess Jacqueline. A gorgeous combination of many design elements.

What do you think of when “friends” comes to mind? Children playing? A dear old pal? A furry friend? We would love to see your creative arches here!

A bit about our hostess:

Hi, I’m Jacqueline from France. My blog is Jacqueline’s Craft Nest and I love creating. Probably my preference is vintage and collage. I love arches too – this is the ideal size for me to create on. I am English born, married to a Dutch man and we live in the with our four boys, the eldest being 19, the youngest 13.We are missionaries, spreading the Word of God to the Francophone world, including the huge Continent of Africa! Making cards is my source of relaxation and I hope encouragement to others as I send and sell alot.

I am so happy to have made so many friends via the blogs as I live in a very isolated area – so thanks to all you ladies who have encouraged me so much by visiting my blog!
The arch theme I chose today is FRIENDS. I used a distressed background and found an image which I love on a Tuscan Rose CD. Have fun creating!
