Welcome January!

I think time is getting away from me lately!  I should have posted this one at the beginning of the month but I sort of got side tracked.  Sometimes I get focused on something and everything else falls by the wayside.    Maybe it just didn't feel like January here in the Midwest lately.   Where I am we haven't had much snow - in fact, we haven't had to dig out the shovels even!  Yesterday we got a light coating of snow - and the temperature has dropped  just as winter should be and I got inspired to make my January card.  

If you've been following me you know I am working my way through this set of month stamps from Serendipity.  I think they are just too pretty to break out for just a calendar or scrapbook page.  What a great way to make a special birthday card, or just to celebrate the dayl! Each month has little images that are perfect for the month they feature.  January has snowflakes, mittens, hat and a scarf.  I thought it would go perfectly with this ice skating paper!  I blinged it up a lot because after all diamonds look like ice right?  I added a bit of cozy warm velvet ribbon in there too!
Thanks for stopping by!  Tomorrow is the Serendipity Stamps challenge - see you then!  Have a beautiful day!

Perfection!!
But then...
they always are! :)
Love that paper...
like it was made just for this stamp!
And we haven't had much winter either...
a little ice...
uugghhh!! :(
I kind'a wish it would snow...but just for a day or so...
otherwise I'm trapped with the kids and I literally lost a piece of one of my eyes a couple years ago due to snow days so they're very hazardous to my health...
so just a day because it's so pretty on the first day! :)
