A Leaf or Two...

So it's Saturday and I'm actually managing to make a LIM card first thing... I do miss these days.. Al is away on a course this weekend, and I should have been in Holland with Lizy but nope.. I'm here first thing on a Saturday morning crafting :-) ... Although I've got a serious amount of "Re-Painting" to do thanks to Dulux!!!!!! Anyhow, the theme this week is "Foliage" and this was a perfect challenge to use a new embossing folder I bought after seeing it on someone's blog!!

Here is my little creation...




Inspiration:
Less Is More: #84 OLC Foliage
CAS-ual Fridays: #69 Embossing

Card Recipe:
Embossing Folder: Sizzix Branches #2
Twine: The Ribbon Girl
Sentiment & Tag Punch: Stampin Up
Memento Expresso Truffle

Ok I'll be back tomorrow to show you how many Christmas cards I made last night... warning it will be picture heavy lol

have a great Saturday

Jen xx
