My photo
A very warm welcome to my teeny, tiny part of the huge world of blogging. This is where I am hoping to 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 always 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.

Good morning everyone

Saturday again - which can only mean one thing .. .. .. another Allsorts Challenge. We are around to Week 20 already!!

Thank you to everyone who took part in last weeks challenge. We had lots of lovely creations to look at. If you took part in the challenge don't forget to go and check whether you were the lucky person who has won a month as a guest DT member.
This week the theme is "Autumn Days" and your creations need to be "inspired by Autumn".

Here is my creation

This used:

Backing papers and sentiment: Funky Hand CD "Funky Seasons"
Image: Whispers Stamp
Punches: Woodware "small label" and "medium circle"
Inkssential "Glossy Accents"
Flower, ribbon and brads from the stash box

This was quite a difficult card to photograph - I don't know why. My camera just didn't seem to like the colours - this is the best one I managed.

I used my circle punch to cut out a leaf from the backing paper and then added a thick layer of glossy accents to it and it has made a kind of dome embellishment. Quite like it!

Have a good weekend everyone.

Thanks for calling by.

Love Jules xx

This is a lovely card Jules, and you're right, the little glossied leaf makes a smashing embellishment.

I really like the Autumn sentiment too.

It's lovely and the dome idea is so clever. I also love the quote, the colours, the trees - well, the lot really.

Jules said...

Tee hee Francien - wish I was clever enough (or able to bluff good enough) to say I had blended the heart in - but the truth is I posted the wrong photograph!! LOL!! It would help if I used the one I put on the Allsorts Challenge blog.

Have swapped it now. Thank you for being my quality control consultant. Are you available on a regular basis?!?!?!?

Love Jules xx

Francien said... almost let be trow my new glasses away...looked at it over and over again..could not find it..and i always do ..untill now....but your card looks even more beautiful with the little tag..Thanks for letting me know dear!
