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

Here today with my Penny Black Challenge creation.

This week is a very special one as it is their 100th week and as well as being given a sketch to follow there is also a blog hop to take part in. (I think that part will have to wait until later as I have quite a bit I want to cram into today).

So here is my creation:

and here is the sketch

My creation used:

Image: Penny Black "2377J" What Creation!
Backing Papers: DCWV Black and White Prints
Sentiment: Computer generated
Cuttlebug Folder: Happy Birthday
Nestabilities: Classic Scalloped Circles Large and Circles
Diamond Stickles
Button and embellishments from the stash box

So out with your Penny Black stamps folks and have a try. There are lots of lovely goodies to be won and the sketch is great to use.

Thanks for calling by.

Love Jules xx

Hi Jules

Thank you for your lovely comments, they are very much appreciated.
I love all the cards you've been creating, especially the goth girl, she's fab.
I had to smile at your dandelion snow, guess what, we actually did have snow yesterday, only a little bit but the weather here has turned really cold, what is going on, it's May for goodness sake!!
Take Care

HI there Jules
this is just so lovely, love the red and black together.
hope your enjoying your time at home and not doing any more house work than you would if you were at work, as that's what I find when I have a few moments I seem to end up doing boring jobs instead of crafting.
take care see you on the 5th love chris xx

Don't know how I missed this one Jules. Blame it on my stinking cold stopping my brain from working properly, Lol.

It's a great card. I'm surprised there's any cake left from the size of the 'puddy' cat.
