Christmas ~ A Time For Reflection

Hi everyone and hope you all had a great week. Well, it's been another busy day and as I sit here watching Corrie...I thought I'd better pop on to say hello!

It's seemed very strange showing you all these Christmas cards in July and I know that Christmas is a dirty word to some of you, so early in the year!! lol But to be honest, it's always been my favourite time of year and no matter when, I always enjoy making Christmas cards...even if I was doing them with the sun shining through the window, my strawberries growing outside my back door and wearing a maxi dress and Birkis. The life of a crafter is a strange one... :)

Anyway, today is the final day of my Clarity shares and've got two for one and I really hope you love both of them, as much as I do!
This first card, uses the stamp kit above and is just such a fabulous little set of stamps, which I built up and up, to make this snowy, winter scene.

The second card features the Holly and Ivy Flourish, which I can see being very useful in making my Christmas cards this year. There are just so many ways that you can incorporate this stamp into all your card making. And look how different this looks, using traditional Christmas colours, to the one that I showed you earlier in the week, on another of my samples.

Well, I hope you all have a wonderful weekend and whatever you have planned...enjoy!!
See you next week and thank you, to everyone for all your lovely comments and for your continued support!
Love Emma


  1. Wonderful Christmas cards Emma, your scenes are always gorgeous and you make it look so easy. Very professional. Love them both. Enjoy the weekend. Tracy x

  2. Two fabulous cards Emma, Love the colours of the sky on the first one - I have these stamps and tries something similar last year but didn't achieve anything as good as yours!
    Love the traditional colours with the holly & Ivy flourish, gorgeous.

    I guess I'm one of the ones that finds it hard to think Christmas in July o_O (not being Australian) but I do find myself getting into the spirit seeing your lovely cards! :D from the beautiful snowy winter scene in the first the wonderful colours in the second puts one in the mood for a warm latte and a roaring fire! :)

    Brilliantly done and MERRY CHRISTMAS! ;p
