This weeks theme is “All Things Celtic” and our hostess Mary-Beth has made this beautiful arch to start our challenge.

What do you think of with this theme? castles and the Emerald Isle? your ancestors? St. Patrick? bagpipes? Whatever it may be we would love to see your arch this week!

A bit about our hostess:

I am thrilled, awed and frightened to be hostess this week! LOL Thank you Nancy for the opportunity!

I began stamping about 6 or 7 years ago and that in turn has led me to this journey into art which I am enjoying tremendously. I am now mostly interested in mixed media and if I can use my stamps. great!

I love to go blog hopping to see what everyone is doing and to see if I can adapt that idea to my art. I am unable to take classes or workshops due to my crazy schedule so this is how I learn.

I am 3rd generation Canadian from an Irish immigrant family and am very proud of my heritage. My cousins have traced our genealogy all the way back to 1599 when my ancestors came to Ireland from Normandy! So in honour of St. Patrick’s Day and my ancestry – ‘All things Celtic’. I hope you have a lot of fun with this theme, I can’t wait to see everyones wonderful art! (Don’t feel you have to limit yourself to Irish Celts. If I remember my fact right, Celts were all over Europe.)
