Show Me Sunday - Word Beads with Rebecca of Songbead

Happy Sunday to you all! Hope you are having a lovely day, whatever and wherever you are today. Are you celebrating with the father-figure in your life? Are there any dads out there reading this blog? I have a feeling there are a few more mums, sisters, wives and daughters on here, than dads and brothers. I'd love to be proved wrong though - let us know if you are out there, dads, and if you are celebrating your special day with beads! 

A few special word beads to share with you today:

 Fun polymer letters, from Bead Soup Beads. I love the red/orange/yellow splashes on the urban grey. Very different, in a very good way!

These connectors are just the prettiest shade of aqua. They are in Sugar Paws' Stash Shoppe, but originally created by ABS favourite, Melanie Brooks of Earthenwood Studio. Snatch a bargain!

And brand new from the Queen of Art Bead Scene, these inspirational connectors from Heather Humblebead Powers! Aren't they just gorgeous? One of a new series - hop over to her shop and check out the whole range!

Don't forget to leave us your word bead links in the comments below! I'd love to see what you've been creating combing beads and words. 

And now for the Beadblogger links. Happy Sunday!
