Love Is Like A Butterfly...

“We delight in the beauty of the butterfly, but rarely admit the changes it has gone through to achieve that beauty."

― Maya Angelou

Hello friends...

How did it get to Saturday so quickly? I'm sure it's only really Wednesday and I've got three more days in my schedule to finish all the jobs that need to be ticked off that "to-do" list!!! Eeeek....

I've had a busy couple of days making lots of new projects for the January issue of Making Cards Magazine and I've finally added the finishing touch to the very last card and thought I'd pop on here to say hello and share my final set of artwork from last weekend's Clarity shows. As always, I really hope you love what I've created and to all my new followers, welcome aboard and I'll look forward to getting to know you...
The first card uses the butterfly stamp from the Pretty Petals and Butterfly stamp set and I combined this with the new Letterbox stamp set and the Alphabet stamps. What you can't see on these photos because the camera couldn't pick it up was that each diamond is embossed and glazed to make a beautiful shiny finish on the wording.
The second card is using the Bare Trees set of stamps from the Classroom shows and because my favourite season is Autumn, going into Winter and because I love snowy scenes, I decided to keep my trees bare and create a little forest standing proud in the icy cold moonlight. Both of these cards are created using Distress Inks for the backgrounds and I used Distress Marker pens to colour the butterfly image.

So, that's my Clarity shares finished for this month and next week, I will be starting a new set for the November shows.

Before I go, I just wanted to say how touched I have been with all the lovely comments that you have all been leaving here on my blog, on my FB page and on Twitter. I've really been blown away by every single word that has been said and it really did come at a time when I needed to hear, THANK YOU to all my friends and followers!!
Right, time to go...clear up Armageddon in the dining room and get ready for a evening of Saturday night TV with the comfort of a hot water bottle on my very achy neck!!

See you all soon and thanks for dropping Emma xxx
