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

I hope your weekend is going nicely.

Today is starting off fairly bright here where I am - let's hope it stays like this as I would like to take some photographs that look half decent.

I had no choice yesterday though.

In order to share my creation I needed to take a picture before we left home as we were going to a little house-warming party.

A new photo taking position was found (necessity being the mother of invention) and with the help of one of my many "furry friends" I managed to get this little shot.

Still not brilliant I know but it is better than nothing I suppose!!

This used:

Backing papers: DCWV "The Green Stack"
Image and Sentiment: Woodware FRCL059 "On the Move"
Nestabilities: Classic Scallop Rectangles Small & Classic Rectangles Small
Ribbon (flowers already attached): A present from my blog buddy Brenda (Thanks B xx)
Rafia, charm, cocktail stick and brads from the stash box

I paper-pieced the image using up some of the many thousands of small bits of paper I just can't throw away!! LOL!!!

Have a good Sunday everyone.

Love Jules xx

Fab card, again, Jules. I know what you mean about the frustration of finding a good light to photograph in at this time of year.

I find Photoshop Elements very useful for brightening and sharpening images, and helping to adjust the colours if the photo looks 'off', colour-wise. Makes them look much better. I got my software free with my camera. You may be able to find a free copy somewhere.. Maybe on CDs on the front of computer mags? (Can't say I've looked at computer mags in a while.. do they still do that?)

Anyway.. hope you find your photographic 'sweet spot'! ;o)
