Serendipity Stamps Blog Hop #1- January

Oh my word.... It's January... Did  you have great holidays- I hope so!! Sorry I'm a little late. I started out delayed on my flight home from Indiana, then my camera battery wouldn't charge- once that was all fixed, I couldn't get access to my blog-geesh!!!

For today, it's all about winter [again :-)] brrr...


I'm in a little hurry this am- I got up early to see if I could get things working again- will post later the exact stamps I used and links. 


Here's a little close up of the glitter (to look like snow) on the wheel and the spattered paint for snow.



Here's my inspiration pic for the winter sunset.
