Snow Globe Mini Cards/Tags

I have been neglecting my Snow Globe stamp after I made this card
Village Snow Globe
After staring at it and leaving it on my craft table for days, I decided to make mini cards/tags with the Snow Globe stamp
mini cards/tags
I colored these Snowman the old-fashioned way: Prisma color pencil with mineral spirit ! I traced the outlines of the cling stamp, cut them out and then stamp ( took me a few trials and errors)!  I added glitter, glossy Accent (on the scarf and hat). Feel like a school kid all over again.
Speaking of "kids", the boys in the house made some progress on their Lego. The London Tower Bridge is starting to take shape. I took some photos and here's the preliminary one... there's more to come! I'll keep you posted.
Thanks for stopping by! I always appreciate your thoughts and comments!

Fantastic snowglobe tags V! Very cute! Looks like the bridge is coming along. My son wouldn't be able to stop working until it was done. How many pieces is that one. I don't think he's had that big of kit though. :)
