Reach for the Sky

Hope everyone has had a lovely day and that your Christmas preparations are now well under way!

Me? I'm still panicking just a little bit but *keeps repeating*...keep calm and carry on, keep calm and carry on...and I will do, with a smile on my face, Christmas songs playing and the smell of Christmas wafting through the house from some gorgeous Yankee Candles.

Now, back to today and my Clarity share...here they are, I hope you like them.
The first card using this set of stamps is all about winter and I hope I captured the feel of a snow covered ground, an icy cold chill in the air and a visit from Jack Frost.

If you look closely, there's a slight twinkle on the trees to emulate those gorgeous frosty mornings, just like the ones we've woken up to over the last few days.
The second card, using exactly the same set of stamps is all about spring. The trees have yet to be covered in leaves but the sun is shining and just coming up over the hills and the grass is just starting to grow.

These are some of my very favourite stamps from Clarity and I hope that I've showed you some of the versatility in them.

Right, time for me to collapse on the sofa after a long and busy day!
Thank you, as always for all your lovely comments and for taking the time to leave them at this time of year. I truly appreciate each and every single word.

Bye for now and see you tomorrow!
Love Emma xxx


  1. You have definitely captured the seasons on both cards Emma, love them. Isn't it busy at this time of year, like you though I love it and I too have my Yankee candle lit and my lounge smells gorgeous. Enjoy your relax. Tracy x

  2. Beautiful cards Emma! You have captured the seasons perfectly! I have a Yankee Candle burning too; my all time favourite Cinnamon Stick.

  3. Me too, we should have shares in the candle company! Your clarity cards are always super, these are no exception,

  4. Hi Emma. I know exactly what you mean about not panicking. I've just about given in now. What gets done gets done, it'll be alright on the night so to speak!!
    Your Clarity cards are all stunning as always. I spotted quite a few at the weekend. You can always spot an "Emma" card before they tell you!!
    Sorry I haven't been around as much lately. Those preparations have kept me away from the computer.
    Don't work too hard or get too stressed.
    Hugs Lisax

  5. Hi Emma,
    They are stunning, amazing! They look like beautiful water colour paintings. How you achieve these samples with inks and stamps is pure talent and genius. Love them.
    Luv ya chick chat soon

  6. I don't know how you get through all the work you do, Emma, and still come up with lovely cards. Hope you enjoy the bread pudding. That lot is all finished, so I need to get baking again tomorrow.

  7. Stunning Clarity shares Emma, Love the scenes you have created with the trees. I missed the shows this time unfortunately, so I'm pleased to have seen your cards.
    Have a good week-end.
