Back again with my usual Friday evening excitement.
I posted a challenge card earlier today - but that was a trial. I wanted to see if I could do that "scheduled post" thingy - and yes.. .. it worked. .. .. and that is something new I have learnt (or is it learned?) today.
But now you have the usual Friday night excited Jules with another creation.
I just had to use my MS punch again. I love it and you will all be sick of seeing it soon. The poor thing has been on overdrive today.
I love my finished creation - and it isn't even a cute one!!!
Aren't those shoes just "to die for"!!!!! I can remember the days when I would have been able to "wear" and "walk" in those beauties. I think nowadays I would do well to squeeze them onto my feet and sit in them .. .. .. LOL!!!! But a girl can dream.
Lots of fantastic goodies on this card but not all as expensive as they look. Can you believe that the gorgeous "snake skin" paper that I used for the border and to stamp the shoes onto came from my local Morrisons Supermarket.. .. it is even textured to the touch!!. (Does anyone else still think "what can I find to craft with" when stocking up the fridge and cupboards and that cleaning cupboard that we won't talk about?).
The paper was part of a child's "Art Attack" kit. Lots of animal skin papers, feathers and pom-poms - great value for money. (Not sure what I will do with the pom-poms - or some of the strange coloured feathers - but I am sure there will be a challenge calling for them one day).
Anyway - enough of the waffle.. .. .. here is my creation of the evening:
Image & Sentiment: Hero Arts CL303 "High Heels"
Punches: Martha Stewart Doily Lace & Scalloped Hearts
Papermania Adhesive Stones
Ribbon from the lovely lady on the market
Papers from the supermarket LOL!!
Well that is me for this evening.
I now have the luxury of a long soak in a very hot and bubbly, bubble bath. I need to make up for not having any hot water for the last three days!!
All my carpets are now back down where they belong and my new boiler is installed and hopefully working properly. Just need to keep my eyes open for leaks!!!!!
Do as my card says "Kick up your heels & have fun!"
Take care everyone and see you again over the weekend.
Love Jules xx
- A very warm welcome to my teeny, tiny part of the huge world of blogging. This is where I share my passion for making hand made greeting cards. So - why "Always with a Heart"? Well this is for two reasons. Firstly, it is because every card I produce carries a heart on it somewhere. This can be big and bold or small and almost hidden - the fun sometimes is just trying to find it! Secondly it is because I put my heart into everything I produce. I hope that any visitors enjoy seeing what I post. If you drop by then please leave me a comment so that I know you called. It would be nice to know that you have found my heart in what I do.
