Flight of fancy - Crafting Cafe

I realised that I hadn't shared my dt post for the Crafting Cafe with you all this month!!!! Bad Nikki... lol
So here it is.... This month our theme is flight of fancy......

I chose to use the planet and the spaceman with rocket as my digis.
I knew I had a birthday card to make and I knew just what I wanted to do......
Using the planet I resized it and covered some cardstock (one of the great things I love about digis is that you are in total control and can make them any size you want!)...
Then I did another planet and 2 of the spaceman and rocket - this meant I could create my own decoupage with the spaceman to add depth.
I attached the extra planet and spaceman to the card with some acetate. This is a great way to add some movement to your card.
The viser was created with 3d gloss. Glitter glue gave the added shimmer.
I really had a lot of fun making this card and I know it went down very well with the birthday boy.
We would love to see your flights of fancy projects over on the cafe blog - and this month is the last month of their dt call! So if you fancy joining us and working with some wonderful digis.... Pop on over to the blog, add your challenge on the theme and remember to put dt after your name!!!
Looking forward to seeing what you all create.
Happy crafting

Time for some crafting

So far this week we have had rain, hail, snow and sleet.... there's also been a bit of sunshine.... today there is just a lot of cloud and rain.
Perfect for staying in and doing some crafty things....
First of all though, before any crafting for me next week, I've been finishing off some commissions - I'll share them with you are soon as they are finished and I can share them.
Today though I wanted to share these two projects with you,
The first one is my Mum's mothers day card.
I really love making these quilled flowers. (See the tutorial column on the left to find out how simple they are to make). They save me a fortune on embellishments and they mean that all my little scraps are used up.
 Here's a few close ups for you.

 The second card is a commission from a friend. Her uncle loves budgies so I was asked to make a get well card that featured one..... this is what I came up with.

Next on my list is my DT work..... off to do some colouring in and then some embossing..... watch this space to see what I come up with.
I'll share them very soon!
Happy crafting to all of you and to those of you who celebrate it - Happy Easter.
