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.

Hi Everyone

I hope that you all had a good weekend.

I fancied playing along with the Penny Black Challenge this week. It is a colour combo challenge and they are wanting to see pink, green and yellow on your creations.

Well I have managed to sneek a bit of each in here:

This used:

Image: Penny Black 3702J "Jump for Joy"
Backing Papers: Funky Hand "Dreams Come True" CD
Spellbinders Nestabilities "Large Deckled Rectangles"
Fiskars: Threading Water Punch
Bosskut: Die #0618 "Small Daisy"
Leone Em Pty: CP30 "Ash Branch"
Brads and Ribbon from the stash box

Hoping for mega production today ahead of work tomorrow - so off I go to it again!!

Take care everyone and thanks for calling by.

Love Jules xx

Have to say I wouldn't have chosen that colour combo Jules but it works brilliantly. So nice and springlike (Oh roll on Spring).

I love the image. It really made me smile. Off to wrap up warm and take the dog for a walk (skate?) on the ice down our road, Lol!

Have a lovely crafting day.
