My new leafy die...

Hi everyone, sorry for not posting for a while now, my health has still not improved and I am having to rest a lot.

I haven't been well enough to do any crafting so I bring you a card I made a few weeks ago, made using this lovely Marianne creatables leafy die called "Forest Branch". It is so delicate and definitely my fave leafy die ever.

Here is a slightly different you can see I've created a gap card. The Waltzingmouse Very Vintage Labels 5 frame secures the two pieces of card.


I have made sure the inside of the card is neat and tidy as well...


...and this is the first time I have used my Melon Mambo SU cardstock and I love it.


A huge thank you to Jo from Siggi Shop for designing my watermark for me-looks really good doesn't it? I'll be back as soon as I can.



Oh Sarita - I'm so sorry to hear that you are still feeling under the weather - you must be fed-up of all that day-time TV. (I can recommend Bargain Hunt though - 12.15pm every week-day)!!
Your card is stunning - that pink SU card is fabulous, and I love the gap design. I agree - the leaf die is lush! Get plenty of rest - Hugs, Sylvia xxx

Very stylish and elegant Sarita. So sorry to hear you aren't well and having to endure daytime tv-hang in there!

Such gorgeousness and opulence! Love the rich colour of the cardstock Sarita and your watermark is very swish. I agree about Daybreak, I only watch Lorraine and then I turn over to Heir Hunters on BBC1. Can't abide the pondlife on Jeremy Kyle. (am I allowed to say that?)

So sorry to hear that you still aren't feeling well. Can't imagine being condemned to watching daytime TV instead of crafting! This card is gorgeous, as all of yours are. I love that leafy die, now I'm going to have to go get it! Hope that things improve soon, we miss ya!

I am sorry to hear that your health is still not good, I hope you soon improve.
Hugs, Jackie xx

Stunning card. I haven't seen a gap card before but like the result very much. I love melon mambo too. Strangely enough I'm working on a project with it just now.

Hope you are feeling better soon. x

The leafy die is gorgeous but you've worked your magic with it to create yet another stunning card.
Sorry to hear you are still not well and I'm not surprised you are going stir crazy having to watch daytime TV (mind you evening TV isn't much better either).
Take care - heed your doctors advice and hopefully you will soon be on the road to recovery.

Victoria said...

this is a stunner Sarita, I love the colour combo and that leafy die is delish!

So gutted for you that your health is not letting you keep active, you must be so fed up lovely.

Look after yourself, get well soon and then spend lots of time crafting to recoup yourself!

What a wonderful card Sarita.

aw Sarita - hope you feel better soon. I have no idea about any of those TV programmes. I know I shouldn't be but I'm half envious that you'r at home (sorry!) That die cut is just beautiful and you certainly haven't lost your creatability. Very beautiful card Sarita (and great watermark)

José said...

Another stunning card, you have a magic touch to all your cards, they are just so original, this card in particular is lovely, love the colour combo.

Hope you are well soon, when I have been off work recently, it was Heir Hunters then Homes under the Hammer then out to the conservatory to read, as much as I could do at that time.

Sheila in Cyprus said...

Good Morning Sarita. Sorry to hear that you're not well again, but hope you will soon be feeling better. This card is absolutely stunning. Love the bold colours you have used, and that die is to 'die' for! (sorry about the pun). I love browsing your blog you have so many inspirational ideas. Take care. Love Sheila (Cyprus)

Trixie Hughes said...

So sorry to hear you're still poorly and hope you're on the mend again very soon. In the meantime I'm sure there are lots of us out here missing your beautiful cards, you have a very special talent. Love the gap card by the way. x

Tina said...

Hello Sarita,
