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.

WE THREE KINGS

Hi Everyone

I cannot believe that it is Friday tomorrow .. .. my days and weeks are starting to disappear faster and faster these days!!

I have however managed to spend a few hours with my Mum this afternoon playing with paper roses for some wedding invitations whilst I was there.

She was quite surprised to see me carrying in a small box of roses and a tiny pair of scissors instead of the normal big box of images to colour and my promarkers LOL!!

So no time for a new make to share today but you can see a sample I made for Anice to showcase her new Twelve Crafters Crafting CD.

There are lots of images on the CD and they come either coloured (for if you are mega short of time) or just the outlines for if you want to colour them yourself.

On the card below I chose to colour myself



I tried to emboss the crowns and the gifts for baby Jesus but must admit it leaves a little to be desired!!

Right bath time for me and then I might play with a few more roses before bedtime and not the chocolate kind :-(   LOL!!!

Have a great evening.

Love

Hi Jules
great sample, I love the expression on the three kings faces (it looks like Victor Meldrew got dressed up) LOL, do not worry about the embossing. I have never used any colored embossing powder only clear one so I do not even know how it's meant to look like. I always get strange surface with clear one when the light catches it in a certain way.

I think you did a good job of the embossing. Don't think I could have coped embossing areas that fiddly. X

Sally said...

A fab image Jules,I know you've coloured yours but pre-coloured images are right up my sreet. lol. Well done on having a go at embossing the small bits, couldn't have been very easy. But I think it looks OK.
