Challenge 24 - Photo Inspiration

Something a bit different here at SGC this challenge, a photo inspiration. Since it is the middle of Winter and absolutely freezing here at the moment I thought this photo was very appropriate....





I found it at http://www.wallpaperweb.org/wallpaper/nature/a-frosty-tree-a-frosty-day-in-central-otago-new-zealand_1440x1080_42327.htm so it is a wintery scene taken in Otago, NZ.



We have 2 fabby sponsors for this challenge.

Here is a few words from Stitchy......


Hi my name is Stitchy and I am Co-Owner of Stitchy Bear Stamps...we started this store April 1st, No Fooling haha..I live in upstate New York with my husband and two TEENAGE adults haha, I do say that loosely as they think they run the show here, NOT...

I been creating stamps for a little less than a year now and I am totally addicted to the craft..I started about 4 years ago making digital scraps and I knew there was much more out there, so a friend of mine introduced me to digital stamps...and the rest they say is history...I look forward to seeing all the beautiful creations come through...good luck everyone..stitchy xoxox"
