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 all

Has everyone been suffering from lots of rain over the last few days? We have certainly had plenty in my neck of the woods. But to look on the bright side it does at least mean that I don't have to bother travelling round with my little watering can!!

What doesn't seem normal is having to have the lights on during the day!!

Today's share is my entry into the Penny Black Saturday Challenge where they would like to see some "swirls" on our creations.

This creation used:

Image: Penny Black "4023K" Love is the Message
Background Papers: Pink Petticoat
Swirls: Spellbinders Shapeabilities "Doodle Parts"
Woodware Flower Punches
Swirly brads, pearls and ribbon from the stash box

So that is me. A project with swirls and I have just realised - no colouring!!! I simply used a versafine ink pad and clear embossed over it to give it a lovely sheen (which doesn't show too well on the photograph).

Catch you all again soon and thank you for calling by.

Love Jules xx
