Hummer in Flight

Hi everyone,

Thanks for stopping by and for all your wonderful comments. I'm honored to have you here and I truly appreciate each of you more than you know!

For those of us in the northern hemisphere, the days are rapidly drawing in, and summer is a dim and distant memory.  So, I thought I'd brighten your day with this beautiful hummer...

The plate was designed by the late, much missed, Jayne Nestorenko, and is the first of her designs I've bought.  I've also just realized that the other plates used complete the trio of Clarity designers...

Card: Unbranded white and ivory, and Clarity ivory parchment
Groovi Plates: Jayne's Hummingbirds, Linda's Butterflies (flowers in the corners), and Tina's Symmetrical Floral Round, Occasions Border, and Diagonal Piercing Grid
Tools and embellishments: Pergamano embossing and piercing tools, Arteza pencils, Clarity brads, and black pearls from my stash

I'll be back soon with another creation, so I hope you'll join me then.


  1. How lovely this is, Em! And, more of that diagonal piercing. I did try a small corner and it looks good, but not as amazing as filling a whole background as you do!

  2. Hi Em this is a stunning card. It is so delicate and beautiful. Take care. Hugs Jackie
