Well I think Spring might finally be upon us! We went from wearing winter jackets to no jackets at all....no "light weight" jackets in between! LOL

Cindy Cade suggested we do a challenge that was jewelry based, and that gave me the idea for this.....BLING!!! Your entry can be made using any type of craft supplies you'd like. It can be jewelry, a jewelry box, a card with a piece of jewelry on it, anything shiny or sparkly, rhinestones, glitter vinyl.....be creative!!!!

As always, the winner will be chosen by random.org and will receive a $100 shopping spree at CraftVinyl.com!!!!

Yup...NE Nebraska here and today was rain, sleet, snow, thunder and lightning and wind blowing like crazy!
Hopefully "spring" comes soon!

Sounds like a fun challenge!

My entry is not jewelry, but it is made of beads and it sure sparkles! I made this rosary out of cracked glass beads that I had bought from Hobby Lobby.

This is actually my first "bling" project. My daughter wanted to put bling on her makeup case and I'd purchased rhinestones but not used them. This was my test project! LOL

Mine isn't jewelry but it's beadwork. It's a bookmark that I made for myself. The racecar is an earring. I used to wear the earrings when my husband was racing but since he doesn't race any more I don't wear them so I decided to use one for a bookmark.

I sewed a button on to the glove to make it look like a ring

I've been placing teddy bears on cards and adding a pair of earrings for the eyes. This "relaxed" bear became a gift tag on a bottle of RELAX riesling wine.
