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.

LUCKY DIP

Hi Everyone

Happy Tuesday .. .. or what is left of it!!

Just a quick card tonight made in "lucky dip" mode.

No choosing what to work with .. .. just open the Penny Black drawer .. .. look the other way and see what stamp comes out.  Open the drawer with the paper stacks in and do the same.

Then this is what you get .. .. ..




This used:

Image:  Penny Black "3377K" Whispers
Sentiment:  Pink Petticoat "Tiny Everyday Sentiments
Backing Papers:  GCD Studio "Soul Food"
Josy Rose:  Nail Heads and Acrylic Domes
My Trust Sewing Machine
ProMarkers
Glamour Dust

and that is it!!

Hopefully I will be a little earlier tomorrow.

Love

I should think so, I have had to stay up to see if you have made a post!lol.
My second favorite PB stamp and I do not have it, tried all of the place to get it but always sold out and I suppose that it is now discontinued.
Fabulous card

Lovely card, Jules. Must try your lucky dip method some time and see what I come up with ... I'm sure it won't be as good as yours though :( Got the magazine with the Joy Fold card tutorial today ... now I just have to find a bit of time to try to make one :) Hugs, Elizabeth xx

Gosh Jules - If this is what happens when you randomly pick your crafty goodies I am going to blindfold myself next time I make a card.
This is gorgeous. The image is gorgeous and I love the papers and how you have paper pieced the flowers. I love looking at your blog - I don't think you ever produce a card I don't like.
Hugs Sharon. x

Absolutely love your lucky dip card, Jules! I've never done a lucky dip card - what a great idea, must try it. Never made a joy card either, but having just been looking at the magazine I'm inspired to try those too, your examples are gorgeous. You sound extremely busy! Glad to hear things are going well for you.

That's really not fair. It would take me days to come up with a gorgeous card like that. Just shows everything you have tucked away in those drawers is a real treasure.

Oh my goodness Jules. I spend ages poring over papers - a lucky dip would look like a couple of dogs had been fighting over the result. Sigh :(

Gorgeous card Jules. I wish I could play that game with Penny Black stamps. I don't have enough. Can I dip my hand in your PB draw please? That could sound rude!
