Treasures


This is a card for the treasures challenge over at Saturday Stampers. I know it seems a bit sad and lonely even, but, after the recent weeks I've had, it was only intended to be thought provoking and to remind me as much as anyone to take the time to appreciate and treasure the here and now.

I don't find it sad at all....It really does evoke peacefulness and reflection. This is a lovely piece.

I think peace and quiet are a great treasure when one leads a hectic life. This speaks volumes to me - and you've used such calming colours. Great work!

Gorgeous. I love to see images of park benches, especially covered in snow or frost. They always look inviting to me, like they are saying, "come here, rest a while with me" This gives me that same thought.

I like the idea of a happy treasured bench a lot. There's a bench in Woodstock where we always sit with Sasha on the way from the park.
