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.

Hi Everyone

This week the Penny Black Challenge is to use "Lace and Pearls".

Here is my creation:

This used:

Image: Penny Black 3947K "day-dreams"
Backing Papers: My Mind's Eye "Bloom and Grow"
Sentiment: Pink Petticoat
Papermania: Adhesive Pearls
Lace: A present from blog buddy Brenda (thanks matie x)
Martha Stewart Punch: "Valentine Lace"
Star Dust Stickles

Lots of cards I need to make ahead of a holiday in a couple of weeks so I apologise for this being a quick post. Needing to make the most of every minute LOL!!! Fortunately I was able to use the challenge alongside one creation I needed to make.

Thank you for calling by.

Love Jules xx
