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

Here I am this morning with my last DT card for Allsorts. It is sad to be leaving but exciting too.

After lots of challenges alongside the lovely ladies at Allsorts I have decided I need to step down - I won't bore you with lots of details but will simply say "I need every minute I can get at the moment" as things are very busy and very exciting in the "house of many hearts".

My place over at Allsorts is being taken over by the lovely Fleur - please make sure you go and give her the welcome she deserves. Her work is brilliant and I know she is going to have a great time.

So on to this week's theme which was set by my great team mate Lisa. She has asked that we work with the colours pink, black and white.

Here is what I created:

This used:

Image: Penny Black: "Long Stem Cuties"
Sentiment: Papermania "PMA 10071"
Backing Papers: Pink Petticoat
Cuttlebug Embossing Folder: "Stylized Flowers"
Leone Em Pty Punch: CP30 "Ash Branch"
X-Cut Butterfly Punch (Thanks for thinking of me when you saw this for sale Brenda xx)
Flowers, brads, ribbon and pearls from the stash box

Sorry the photograph isn't brilliant. This was a last minute order .. .. .. so it turned into a late night/early morning make that needed to be delivered the next day - so my only photo opportunity was one "not so bright" morning!! LOL!!!

Have a great weekend everyone. I hope you have time to create something pink, black and white.

For me .. .. .. the weekend holds the creation of more Easter cards. Mmmmmmmm........ I can smell the chocolate as I am crafting.

Thanks for stopping by. Have a good one.

Love Jules xx

Paul tells me you are going crafting full time in the not too distant future - how exciting!!! I am soooo jealous :).
Have had create and craft on in the background for the past few mornings and they are busy banging on about promarkers - but are a bit pricy for me so did a bit of surfing and found a fab art shop on line where they are mega cheap (in comparison) Good Times, I can't wait :)

Hi Jules, well I think youve done a brilliant photo of your card, mine always turn out misty for some reason.
Fabulous PB image and coloured beautifully, love the flowers to. With love and hugs Shirleyx

That is gorgeous, Jules! I love those little mice! So sweet! I'll miss your challenges at Allsorts, but hopefully we will be still bumping into each other in blog land regularly!

Jules said...

Hi Cat

Lovely to see you here.

I have had instructions from Paul not to visit your blog until Sunday - hence the lack of visits from me. I promise I will be there tomorrow.

You will have to let me know where you found those cheap Promarkers. You can't drop a hint like that in blogland and not share.

They do seem expensive I know but they last for ages - I haven't worn one out yet and they are used mega every day!! I started my collection with a boxed set to make sure I liked them and then collected the rest in two's and three's. Can't have everything all at once. LOL!! (You can have a play with mine next weekend to see what you think).

I have spoken to Paul this morning and all arrangements have been made for what should be a great long weekend - bring your stamps with you (just in case Paul forgets to say).

This time next week .........

Love Jules xx

I was a bit naughty and got some, I say some I got the set of 12, and 2 sets of 5 (skin tones and skin accents for about £20


Craftycat said...

P.S which stamps do you want me to bring?


Have to make sure there is plenty of crafting time pencilled in to the itinerary :)
