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

To begin with I would like to thank everyone who left me good wishes /comments on my fantastic Funky Hand news of yesterday. I couldn't bring myself to post this entry last night as I wanted to keep my happy news at the top of my blog just a little longer.

But I am here now with a rather late Penny Black challenge entry!!

The theme this week is "White on White" .

I thought this was a really good challenge and I did enjoy it - but how many shades of white are there in my card box?!?!?!? Unbelievable. I thought black was the most difficult colour to be consistent with but now I am thinking the same about white too.

Here is my creation

This used:

Sentiment: Penny Black 3555D "Merry ..."
Cuttlebug embossing folders: Swiss Dots and Snowflakes
Cuttlebug die: Snowflake (covered with Glamour Dust)
Nestabilities: Classic Heart and Classic Circle
Brads, ribbon, gem and diamond Stickles from the stash box

I am loving the finished look and would like to thank the Penny Black challenge team for pointing me in this direction. I feel a few more similar creations may be in the pipeline!

Thanks for calling by.

Love Jules xx

This is lovely Jules and it is also my favourite snowflake. I did white on white for a challenge a while ago and I loved it but this is the first one I've done since then.
