Mission accomplished

Sometime in 2013 I sort of, kind of, thought about, semi-promised myself that I would finish my Blackbird Designs Anniversaries of the Heart before the end of year... and I did.


I just picked this up from Bev the framer at Joanns and I have to saw it blew me away when she took off the brown paper wrapping. I knew I loved it before I took it to her, but oh my goodness, what a wonderful finish a good frame makes. I LOVE IT!!


I picked a very simple frame in, about 2 inches in width with a mottled gold/bronze finish. I've tried to include a close of the frame in these two pictures.

This is the top left corner which happens to be my oldest son's birth month.


And this is the right top corner which happens to be my youngest son's birth month.


I think this section is a great one to usher in 2014...


a wish for good health, good luck and happiness... for all of us.

Happy New Year!
