This weeks theme is “Family”. What do you think of when it comes to family? Your siblings and parents? A special grandmother? Cousins that made growing up fun? We hope to see your beautiful creations in gothic arch form here.
Cora Harkins has made a beautiful arch using her own ancestors photo. What is more precious than that? You can read more about Cora and visit her blog from the links below…

Bio: I am married with one daughter. I work full time as a salesperson and stamping is my artistic outlet. My degree is in costume and set design. Though I do not design professionally, I try to bring that training into my art work. I love antique lace, buttons and ephemera. You can often see me lurking at area flea markets trying to find new treasures. I teach classes and sell my cards locally.
I have been stamping and card making for over 15years. One of my first projects was my wedding invitations. Lucky for me we had a small wedding.
My other hobbies are knitting, sewing, felting and papermaking.
Description of Family Arch: This is an old photo of my Dad’s family. The older woman looks like my Grandmother but she is actually her Grandmother. I thought the quote was so appropriate. I do feel like I explore my family’s past to better understand the present and the future. Photos of family are so precious. They are our links to the past.
