Winter Trees

Vintage Stamping Challenges is starting their last challenge of 2015 and the lovely Claire chose the theme of ‘Winter Trees’.

I have to say that I really struggled with this one as I didn’t want to make another Christmas card.  I was telling Irene and she said “You know you don’t have to make a Christmas card”.  As simple as that and the problem was solved.

Finally went for an ordinary card with snowcapped trees in the background.  Used a beautiful owl stamp which you can find here or he is also in this set of birds here. The adorable tree is an Art Impressions stamp which I think may be discontinued (bought it in 2007)!!!


I really hope that you can join us for this month’s challenge.  To enter just click Mr Linky at the bottom of the VSC web page and maybe it could be you who wins the $20 from Flonz’s store.

Please visit the DT’s blogs for more inspiration and also it would be nice to leave them some love.

    Your take on the theme is absolutely gorgeous Shirl, something about Owl’s that always makes me smile. I am off to click my post button now, if I can remember then I usually try and wait until we have gone live.

    A lovely sentiment, Shirl, with the most peaceful of scenes! We often need to remind ourselves about gratitude, don’t we? I find the more I remind myself, the more I am seeing life that way no matter what happens. your snowy background is perfect for your wise owl! hugs, de

    I’m not sure your owl shares the sentiment on this card… he has a definite look of the unimpressed rolling his eyes like that!
    Maybe the humoristic side is unintentional but either way the card is wonderful. xx

  7. Love that owl stamp. It is going on my wish list. Like how the owl is subtly colored in front of the bright white background. Nice snow treatment too.
