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.

PENNY BLACK SATURDAY - LAST GDT CARD

Hi Everyone

Well can you believe it .. .. my September stint with Penny Black Saturday is over already?!?!?! 
Where did that month go?

Thank you so much for having me ladies.  It has been such fun!

The theme this week is "monochromatic".

I decided to work with black and white .. .. but with my black being very minimalist



This used:

Image:  Penny Black "3377K" Whispers
Sentiment:  Pink Petticoat
Cuttlebug Embossing Folder:  Swiss Dots
Josy Rose:  Acrylic Stone
My Trust Sewing Machine
Pinking Shears
Buttons and thread from the Stash Box

I hope you get chance to play along this week.

Before I go can I just say a big thank you for all the lovely messages you left on our bad news yesterday.  They meant so much.

I'll catch you again tomorrow with my snippet makes.

Love

This is absolutely wonderful Jules - I love the stitching and I love that you kept the black to a minimum. I've just caught up with yesterday's post too and I'm so sorry to hear your bad news. You are so positive and perhaps the job at the hospital was meant to be. Will be thinking of you. Vx
