The Circus Comes To Town...

Hello everyone...

I can't believe it, I woke up this morning and it's actually not raining!! I'm sure it will start soon and we had enough during the night to keep us going but at least we can be thankful for some respite and my heart goes out to all those affected in this terrible weather at the moment.

Today, I'm sharing the rest of my Clarity cards samples that I made for the Create and Craft shows last weekend and as always, I really hope you love them.

 A vintage circus, using a Distress Inked background and a huge bow.

A layered card using the stamps from the Family Tree set.

 For this card, I wanted to create a vintage antique feel, so after colouring it I added some Distress Inks over the top to make a soft and diffused look to the image.
Well, that's it from me for schedule is packed and I've got lots of cards to make for Making Cards Magazine and with that comes the hard part...lots of instructions. So, that's what I'm doing this weekend and I think I will need a big glass of chilled white by the end of today, and probably another cheeky little one tomorrow!!!
Thank you all for stopping by today and as always, I really do appreciate your visits and the love you leave me!

See you all soon and bye for Emma xxx


  1. Lovely Cheerful cards Emma to cheer up a grey day. Beautiful xxxx

  2. I couldn't watch all of the show because I had the little persons here but she was saying how pretty the cars were oh and she's seen the gelli plate

  3. Stunning cards Emma, I love the vintage feel of the circus and the Marianettes cards.....and the pattern building on the middle one is superb...the show were inspirational as always....have a good weekend and cheers will soon be wine time....Jo. X

  4. All of the cards are beautiful Emma, I had forgotten how wonderful that layering technique looks (on the second card). The way you did the marionettes is so clever, love that one.

  5. Such varied ideas - you amaze me, Emma? How are you? I'm about to make four cards, two for giving, two for clients. And I can't seem to get back into it. How you manage your workload is utterly mind-boggling.

  11. Wow! These are fabulous. The circus card definitely is a bright way to celebrate the end of the rain :) And that puppet theater stamp is soooo wonderful. Great distress feel to the card. Love it. Mary Elizabeth

  12. Oh, my, each of these brilliant cards deserved its own post and equal-time comments. They are each one a work of art, Emma! Thank you for the triple inspiration in one setting. I hope you had a wonderful productive weekend and lots of well-deserved beverages!! Hugs, Darnell
