Sparkly, Sparkly Saturday!

I want to thank everyone who stopped by to participate in my Blogmania giveaway yesterday, I thoroughly enjoyed it and look forward to the next one in September!

I just sent an email to the winner, "flychild7", and will be shipping out her book and grab bag of beads in the next couple of days! Congratulations! :)

I am hoping the sparkliness of today's bead, a GORGEOUS cubic zirconia from Artbeads.com, will add a little sunshine to your day if you are having a rainy one like we are here.

These fabulous cubic zirconia beads are 10mm x 12mm with two stringing holes. The package reads: Two-hole faceted rectangle - light amethyst.

It is soft and light in color, but what I thought was extra cool was how these photos turned out. Is it my imagination or does it look like there is a heart shape in the middle of the bead?

I have a design plan for these beads, however, I am not sure yet if I can pull it off! Time will tell.

I hope you are all having a great weekend so far and will have a chance to attempt something crafty! I have some fun news to share tomorrow, so I hope you will stop back over then.

Take care!!
