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 Everyone

What a strange day weather wise .. .. .. dull, then sunshine, then rain, now sunshine again .. .. make your mind up Mr Weatherman!!!

My washing has been out and in and out and in again!!!! Great exercise I suppose LOL!!!

Today's share is for the Lili of the Valley Challenge (thank you for a lovely sketch ladies).

This used:

Image: Lili of the Valley "S106" Fairies on Tiptoe
Backing Papers: Pink Petticoat (New download - Vintage Rose)
Lilac paper: From the Scrap Drawer
Martha Stewart Punch: Daisy
X-Cut Punches: Butterfly and Medium + Small Flower
Diamond Stickles
Brads and Sticky Pearls from the Stash Box

You needed to follow a sketch for the challenge and here is the sketch.

The new download from Pink Petticoat is gorgeous (you need to see all the papers to appreciate just how lovely it is) and better still it is on offer at the moment!!!

Have a lovely evening everyone.

Love Jules xx

You've beaten me too it it, Jules. I've been sat looking the very same image and sketch and pondering on where to start!!!! This is just beautiful. I love those papers, aren't they pretty. The butterfly punch has just been added to my wish list too!!!
Love the card with the freebie stamp too. Another one I've got coloured but no further. You put me too shame!!
The weather here has been pretty miserable for the first day of the hols and tomorrow's forecast is worse!!!! Still at least I get let off watering duty!!
