Snowglobe Moneyholder

Happy Monday! Yesterday evening I had a fun idea how to give money in a special way and had to try it last night - a snowglobe that holds money! Love snowglobes and I am happy I found this one with enough space to put more than just a photo into it:


Another view of it to show the left side without the reflection:



And some snowglobe action:


Love it! It`s perfect for the Hero Arts "Giving Cards" Challenge - well, I hope so, because it is not a card... Btw, did you see all the amazing new stamps?? I can`t wait to get some - any ideas how to make lots of money? Lol!
Thank you for your sweet comments on my family`s health! My husband returned to work today and Alyssa is ok again, too! So glad this is over - I was awake every night the last two weeks, either because my husband was coughing or because Alyssa was crying. No need for that :)
We are enjoying a bit of winter wonder land at the moment, but unfortunately they already predicted the snow will be gone til Christmas... well, I`ll have to make some more snowglobes to create our own white Christmas ;) . Yesterday we decorated our very first family Christmastree. On the lower branches I used Christmas Balls made of plastic, because my little monkey thinks it`s funny to grab them and run away with them! The tree looks a bit strange, usually the big globes are hanging on the lower branches, but because I only have small ones made of plastic it is decorated vice versa... Wow, I am chatty today, hm? Hope it wasn`t too boring! After the holidays I`ll post a how-to of the candle, I am glad you liked it!

Thank you for visiting and have a wonderful Monday!

Hugs,
Vanessa

Supplies:
