Christmas glass block with vinyl

Today I made my first glass block! My friend asked me to pick some up for her while I was in Oregon last weekend. I had not intended to buy any for myself, but pretty samples in the store and a 50% off sale (only $5 each!), changed my mind. Tonight I have bunco and we have a $5 gift exchange so I thought I'd make one for the gift. I used white stazon ink to to "frost" the glass, then red vinyl for the images. The images are from Christmas Cheer. I used DS to weld some hooks to the ornaments and cut out a snowflake from the large one. The blocks came with a big opening on the top, and I filled it with a stand of 50 white lights. It was my first time using my bowdabra so my tails ended up a little short, but the bow came out nice - hopefully it doesn't smooshed in the gift bag. I can't wait to make one now for myself!

These are gorgeous! Where in Oregon did you get them? I'm just over the river in Vancouver, Wa.
