I've had one of those weeks, it wasn't helped by the fact I felt awful and couldn't stop coughing.
It's DT upload for me again on Fiskarettes and this is what I came up with: (after chucking one project in the bin)
You could use it as a photoframe as well. The mesh I bought from a Motor Spares shop, it's aluminium and cheap. It's for using as base to fill holes in car body work. You can buy wire mesh from craft shops but it's more expensive.
Instructions are HERE
Don't forget to enter the COMPETITION over on Fiskarettes, you still have time and there are great prizes to be won:)

The only slight problem I had was the pens running on the sanded side. Iused my Zig Dottariffic, they are great fun and so juicy.

Have a great weekend.

Today was an exciting day for me, my first ever DT project was published. I made this handbag charm. They are really easy to make, instructions are HERE
They don't cost a lot as you can use broken jewelery and leftover beads from other projects.
For findings, beads and advice try G.J. Beads. They are my favourite bead suppliers and have a huge range of beads to choose from.

Half-term week we rented a cottage on the Norfolk Coast, it was a lovely relaxing break. Plenty of long walks on the beach and lots of photo opportunities. We visited the seals on Scroby Sands, one was playing in the wake of the boat.
On the way back we called in at Capture The Magic, it is an absolute Aladdins Cave for Scrapbookers and card makers. An hour had passed so quickly, there was a demonstration of the new Zig Dotta-Riffic pens, I just had to have some, well they were on special offer. My doodles are going to look much better now. If you're in the area, do call in, everywhere you turn there is something new to see. The staff are really friendly and helpful and you can browse as long as you like.

I have lots of stash that I've bought and can't possibly use as it's too nice. Were's the sense in that? So this year I've decided to use what I've got. Over on HSS lots of people have been using the coredinations cardstock. I love the effects you can get. On this card the purple and green are coredinations. It was so easy to get a vein effect on the leaves and paler edges. I used my Fiskars shape boss (another thing that's been stuck in a cupboard) to emboss the floral oval and then added some silk flowers, a button and some bling. The bling was cut from a word I got in a bargain pack, it said Hot stuff, which isn't a title I would use. Cutting it up gave me oodles of tiny gems. The background card is actually pale lemon pearlescent, but it didn't photograph very well.
