Diamonds...



This month Gingersnap Creations is being sponsored by Cornish Heritage Farms and I was fortunate enough to receive the Crown Jewel plate (amongst others) to have a little play with.
This evening I have been mainly playing with metal and a pad of glitter paper that I bought on a whim recently (I'm not usually a glittery person) and so put together a decorated cover for a spiral note pad with the Bling challenge over on Gingersnap Creations and also the white theme of Thank God Its Friday both tapping away at my mind.




...And more close up sparkle with an odd 'diamond' earring as an embellishment.



If you get a chance, please pop on over to the Gingersnap Creations blog where you can find more about the blog candy up for grabs donated by Cornish Heritage farms along with a really interesting interview and gorgeous artwork by Sharon Briss.
