To A Dear Friend...

“We all shine on...like the moon and the stars and the sun...we all shine on...”
― John Lennon

Hello everyone...

Hope you're all having a good day and after such a wet and cold day yesterday, isn't it lovely to have the sun shining on such a beautiful autumnal day.

Before I share today's post with you all, I just wanted to say thank you to everyone who left a comment about yesterday's post. I've been overwhelmed with all your kind words and you really did cheer me up and make me smile like a cheshire cat...the timing couldn't have been more perfect!! :D

So, onto today's post and I think you might recognise this card as this was the card that I put together for Barbara to demo during the Clarity Stamp shows and didn't she do me proud!?! I was over the moon that the demo went so well and it all worked out ok and I had to laugh when she said about stamping onto my prepared and finished background artwork!!! When working with silhouette stamps, I always do my backgrounds first, then stamp the image onto it but Barbara obviously does it the other way round...so, I think I put her under a bit of pressure, tee hee!!!

As always, I really hope you love the card...

Below is the background that I prepped for Barbara, with my signature moon and sky and I thought it would be nice for everyone to see what it looks like before the images are stamped onto it!!
That's it from me for today but thank you so much for popping by and I can't wait to read your comments and don't forget that I will be sharing all my Clarity samples throughout this week ~ so, if you have time, do drop by to say hello!
See you soon and have a great evening ~ love Emma xxx


  1. Wonderful card , Emma and my fave of all the samples shown and demod over the weekend. The neutral and grey shades work to make a beautiful scene of a frosty winter morning xx Annie

  2. I think the admiration your work receives, on air, from both Barbara and presenter, is worthy tenfold and more! Yes, your moon is indeed your signature image! As is the poinsettia on Making Cards cover.

  3. Hi Emma, do hope that you are having a good day....and yes the sun has popped out today in Cheshire too....your demo card for Barbara was stunning and had all your signature traits....I am in love with your clouds and when ever I create a sky ...I have to say that I do try and replicate an Emma cloud.....( promise I won't become your stalker...lol...) hugs....x

  4. Thanks for sharing this with us Emma - I watched Barbara and it was a great demo and it is great to see the background without the stamping. such lovely subtle colours xx

  5. That is just an amazing card, I don't know how you do it I really don't (I'm catching up - so behind on blogs)

  6. Gorgeous background Emma. Love the delicate tones. It would look fab in a series of four - Seasonal colours - This one being Winter. It would make a great Home Decor piece all framed up - Like you haven't got enough to do already ;-) Hugs Helen x

  7. Gorgeous card, love that background! Would love to see how you do that, its a little piece of art!


Thank you for all your comments and messages, they are all appreciated and I hope you'll come back and visit again soon...
Emma ~xx
