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

Haven't we had two wonderful days of beautiful weather!!! It makes your heart all happy to think of the brighter days to come doesn't it.

Unfortunately, I try to take a photograph when the world isn't quite so bright .. .. .. never mind!!

The challenge over at Penny Black this week is to follow a sketch

This is what I created

and this was the sketch (which I flipped round)

This used:

Image: Penny Black 2078H "Birthday Dog"
Backing Papers: Pink Petticoat
Fiskars Punch: "Threading Water"
Fine Glitter
Inkssentials: "Glossy Accents"

I am hopeful that the day is going to brighten up again - it looks promising (unlike all the traffic that is building up outside my house ................... best rush off to work!!!).

Take care everyone and have a good day.

Love Jules xx

Smashing card Jules! Love the cheeky little dog!

It's still dull here at 10.00 am but the sky looks quite promising for later.

Hope you have a good day.

Very cute card. Today I took 50 5-7 year olds to Sealife in Birmingham, and I'm afraid to say I didn't notice what the weather was like!!!
