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

Here I am with my DT card for the Allsorts Challenge this week.

The challenge has been set by Emma and the brief is to work to a sketch as well as use a two colour combination of your choice.

Here is my creation

This used:

Image: Penny Black 1652J "Cheesecake Wish"
Backing Papers: The English Paper Company
Sentiment: Pink Petticoat
Nestabilities: Standard Circles Large
Cuttlebug flower die (but didn't use the whole flower)
X-Cut small flower punch
Gem from the stash box, diamond stickles and faux stitching

Here is the sketch for working to:

There are some beautiful creations by the DT this week so please take the time to pop over and see their creations. We also have the added excitement of Kath joining us as a Guest DT this week. (Thank you Kath).

So pop over everyone and have a look - it would be nice if you played along too - we love visiting and looking at your creations.

Have a great weekend everyone.

Love Jules xx
