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

Back again with another post.

This time showing off a new love in my life "Henry Mouse Hugging a Heart"!!

This is the first time this little chappie has been inked up and I just love him. He was so lovely to colour and I used my Koh-I-Noor coloured pencils again. Dare I say that I think I prefer these to my Promarkers. Shock horror!!. I know I still need to perfect my technique with these pencils but I am well impressed with them.

Anyway here is my creation:

This used:

Image: Whiff of Joy "Henry Mouse Hugging Heart"
Backing Paper: My Minds Eye "Wild Asparagus"
Sentiment: Computer generated
Brads from the stash box

Thanks for calling by - I hope that Monday has been kind to you so far!

Love Jules xx

Never heard of Koh - I - Noor pencils but they must be good looking at this image. The colouring is perfect on this fab card.

He is the cutest!! Love your colouring. I know what you mean about your pencils, sometimes I just love the softness of blended pencils rather than using copics. Hope you're well x
