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.
