Tartan Day

“Tartan Day is a Scottish heritage celebration on 6 April. This day is the date when the Declaration of Arbroath signing took place in 1320. On this day, Scotland got its independence from England, and they were capable of using military action when attacked.”

“Although this day is a Scottish custom, it is celebrated in other countries as well. In 1982, ad hoc event was seen in New York City. Later in the nineties, the modern form of the observation spread to other Scottish diaspora communities. Today, Argentina, the United States, New Zealand, Canada as well as Scotland celebrate the Tartan Day.”

AtoZ2019N

This past November 2018 I took part in the Nibvember 2018 Challenge.  Day 27 prompt was Lettering and I came up with the design below.  It’s easy to see where my inspiration came from as I’d participated in the A to Z Challenge in 2016. So, feeling the call to try once again for A To Z Challenge 2019, I decided to sign up for this years using this design as my inspiration.
