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 are all having a lovely Bank Holiday weekend.

My hubby is at the football today to watch the last home match of the season .. .. .. so this is my last weekend of guilt free crafting for a while. I have been listening on the radio and they have actually managed to win today!!! Yay!!

Whilst crafting I have made a little creation which will fit into the Penny Black Challenge for this week where they want us to "get out our punches".

I have managed a few different punches on this creation - the only part I wasn't able to punch was the large star. No punch to use for this!!

So, here is my creation

This used:

Image: Penny Black "2863J" - Lovin' & Huggin'
Sentiment and Backing Paper: Pink Petticoat
Martha Stewart: Embossed Zig-Zag
Fiskars: Small star and heart
Woodware: Circle
Cord from the stash box

So that is me for today. Thank you for calling by.

Have a good Bank Holiday Monday tomorrow.

Love Jules xx
