There's No Place Like Home

This morning I decided to go Christmas shopping and I think everyone had the same idea because it was heaving out there!!! I love Christmas and I love the feel of the excitement of searching and buying presents for my friends and family but this was crazy!!! So, I've decided that from now until Christmas, other than Tesco and M&S for the last food shop, it's QVC and mail order for me!! I am going NOWHERE!! hee hee...

Anyway, I'm now home, exhausted but with a million and one things to do,'s a quick post from me to show you the penultimate cards that I made for the Clarity shows ~ I hope you like them!

The background paper of this card is all hand punched using the fab new All Over The Page Punches from Martha Stewart. It had just arrived in the post when I started to make this card and I thought the effect that it gave was so pretty and worked so well with the image. Hope you do too...

The next sample is one that I made using the "HOME" set of stamps. Because I'm a little bit of a fan of The Wizard of Oz, I just had to include the yellow brick road on this card and call its "There's no place like home". I also included a little bit of gingham in the handmade flowers and bow, as a homage to Dorothy's dress. lol...

So, that's all from me for today...time to unpack all the bags and catch up with emails.

See you tomorrow with the final share of Clarity.
Bye for now ~ happy Friday and hope you all have a wonderful weekend!
Love Emma xxx
