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 you have had a happy Easter Sunday.

Only one little creation by me today as I have been delivering chocolate Easter eggs to "special little people", continuing to try and organise my craft space and doing far too much washing for my own good!! Unfortunately I now have mega ironing!!! Eeek!!

So my one little creation amongst all of this activity is for the Penny Black Saturday Challenge where this week they want you to "check it out" and use checked paper or ribbon etc.

Here is my creation

This used:

Image: Penny Black 4058J "Yearning"
Backing Papers: Pink Petticoat download "Gingham White"
Punch: Friskars "Threading Water" and Martha Stewart "Frond"
Flowers, brad and ribbon from the stash box

So this is my one and only creation of the day .. .. .. hopefully tomorrow will involve more crafting.

Love Jules xx
