ABC - Let It Snow, Let it Snow

Hello everyone! And a big Merry Christmas to all of you! Hope you are having a wonderful holiday so far, and managing to keep warm.  Today is ABC Monday at Catch The Bug! That means, we feature projects that are Anything BUT A card.  It's always fun to see the different things you can do with stamped or digital images, besides making cards.

Today, I have this adorable glass ornament to show you.  Isn't it a cutie?! The image inside the ornament is Snowman Skates, by Bugaboo Stamps, colored with Promarkers. The image has been fussy cut out and then inserted into the glass ornament.  Blue sheer ribbon is tied around the neck of the ornament. White, glow in the dark, and blue glitter have been placed inside the ornament, behind and in front of the image.  (Yes, you read that right- I said glow in the dark glitter - If You haven't ever used the stuff, you should try it! It is SO cool!) I made this ornament as a gift, so the recipient is going to be surprised when the snow glows in the dark, don't you think?

If you'd like to see other ABC projects, check out Catch The Bug for more ideas!

I am entering this ornament in the following challenges:
