Game On...

Another morning has just whizzed by and another package has been all packed up and sent off!! The house is starting to almost resemble normality again...well, you can at least see the coffee table!! The dining room table is hidden somewhere under a pile of projects all lined up and waiting to be done!!

Thank you for all the visits to my blog, yesterday and for all the lovely comments. It always does mean to much to see you all and read your very kind words. :)

Today, I'm sharing another of the cards that I made for the Clarity shows and this one is using the Letterbox stamps, that Barbara used In The Classroom. As always, I hope you like my card...
The background is embossed mirri card and then I applied alcohol inks over the top. It was so hard to show the shine on this card and the photos really don't do it justice...it was a lot more bronze in colour and very shiny in real life.
I stamped onto the mirri card with the Flourish stamp and then I used my letterbox stamps to create Scrabble tiles to spell out the words. I even added the numbers, by hand to make it look authentic!!!

So, that's about it from me for today...I've got phone calls to make, cards to create and emails to write!!
I'll be visiting your blogs, later and saying hello to you all but until then...bye for now and see you soon!
Love Emma xxx


  1. What an amazing card Emma! I love the background - very effective and I love how you've used the letterbox stamps to create scrabble tiles. Great inspiration as always.

  2. Hi Emma, lovely card, love your use of mirri card and alcohol ink. Love the scrabble letters and how,you added the corresponding numbers. Lovely. I've just been to the post office to posting parcels, I spend my life at the post office lol. Tracy x

  3. So clever and so deceptively simple! Yes, I can see the shine has been thwarted and that the real life card would be stunning! Imagine receiving this when life is perhaps daunting - can you think of anyone? (Trans-Atlantic, maybe?)

  4. Wow fabarooney! Love those tiles and the background is fab. Hope you are ok lovely and keeping on top of all things crafty, you always seem so busy. But glad you find some time even if only for a glass of wine! Have one for me! I've been busy overseeing the sort out of my craft room and it's looking fab, amazing what moving things can do! Shall be posting pics tomorrow. I've now got my inks and things on display so I can get to them! Take care lovely. Zo xx

  5. What perfect words for a crafter. I love the way you have used these words to express what we all do. I like the one from yesterday too. Hope we get to see more of your cards next time. I got the feeling that a lot of the regulars were not named this time round. xx Maggie

  6. Wow!! That is gorgeous.

  7. A very creative use of the mirri card and the tile stamps....fab!

  8. Stunning background Emma and I love the little scrabble tiles - my sort of card
