Looking Back...

Hello friends,

Today I'm sharing a little bit of sad news with you all. After four years and an awful lot of thought, I've taken the very difficult decision to step down from the Clarity Stamp Design Team. I wish Barbara and the team all the best for the future, and in that future I really do hope to work with Clarity products within my magazine commissions and also, for personal designs. But for now, the time has come to say goodbye to the team as I move on to a new chapter.

But before I go, I thought it would be nice to look back on some of my favourite cards that I designed in my time working with Barbara...and when I say some, there were hundreds, so to choose from all of those was very difficult but I hope you enjoy them...






 


 


On this card it showcases perfectly, my "trademark" clouds and sky...









...here come the moons, which just got bigger and bigger!!!
 













 ...and here is just one of the cards with my HUGE moon!!!














 ...and finally, my last and I think one of my favourite cards that I made as a member of the Clarity DT.
Thank you so much for stopping by today and I'll see you very soon with a brand new post!!
Bye for now...love Emma xxx

Oh Emma that is so sad to hear. I absolutely adore all of your clarity cards and hope that you will continue to work with Barbara. Perhaps you could give us some tutorials. Would you consider teaching? You are such a talented lady as I've said many times before. I wish you all the luck in the world on your creative journey.

Phew, such a relief NOT to have to choose a favourite design from all of these.

You will be missed - spot the EW was my game when watching the CS shows. However, the skills and talent you have accumulated will carry you along your crafting journey. And you'll still be 'here', won't you?

MaggieC said...

You will certainly be very much missed, not just by the DT but by all those who watch every month. Geoff used to watch to see which cards were yours to see if he was right (and he usually was). It is sad that you are going but we all have to move on with our lives in some way. I am sure you will do just as well in your new direction in life. Good luck. xx Maggie
