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

A creation today using my favourite colours .. .. .. black, white and purple. Well they are my favourite colours most of the time. Occasionally other colours take their place temporarily - but these always come back as my ultimate favourites!!

Today has been a strange day and looking out of my window whilst crafting I have seen what looked like snow falling .. .. but it is too warm for snow!!

It was actually hundreds and thousands of dandelion seeds flying through the air for the majority of the day .. .. .. .. how scary .. .. .. how many dandelion plants potentially sprouting up everywhere!!! Eekkkk!!!

Well leaving you with that scary thought I will move on to my share of the day .. .. ..

This used:

Image: Sugar Nellie "Goth Girl"
Backing Paper: Funky Hand Download "Salt and Pepper"
Punches: Woodware, X-Cut and Martha Stewart
Distress Ink: Dusty Concord
Josy Rose: Nail Heads and Stars
Ribbon, cord and brads from the stash box

So that is me for today.

Thank you for calling by and I'll catch you again soon.

Love Jules xx

Ooh this is brilliant Jules and your fave colour combo is perfect for the Goth Girl.

I'm not surprised by the dandelion seeds. I have been commenting for a couple of weeks that I've never seen so many dandelions and last week when I took my Mum out for lunch near Matlock I pointed out the banks of dandelions nearly all the way at the side of the road. Millions of the blighters! They actually looked quite lovely by the roadside but not so nice in your lawn.

Wonderful card, Jules! Great Goth image - my Meg would love it! The dandelions are having a good year this year. I must've picked the heads off at least 200 in the garden on Sunday, and I bet there are at least another fifty today.

Fleur said...

Hi Jules, I just adore this card, It's perfect. The image and colours are right up my street - being a bit of an ex goth myself, it's still in there somewhere as I've just treated myself to some purple DR Martins lol
