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.

PAPERTAKE WEEKLY CHALLENGE

Hi Everyone

I hope your week is going well .. .. mine is going far too quickly as usual !!

This posting with my lunch certainly makes for a much more organised evening on the home front .. .. must try hard to stick with it where I can.

My share today is for the Papertake Weekly Challenge where the theme is to use only one pattern or design paper.

That saved a bit of time .. .. and also gave me the chance to use up more of those cream card offcuts.

Here is what I came up with:




This used:

Sentiment:  Pink Petticoat "Tiny Everyday Sentiments"
Backing Paper:  Docrafts "Wellington"
Go Kreate:  Large Frames "Scalloped Squares"
Crafter's Companion:  Die'sire Dies "Scalloped Tags"
X-Cut Punch:  Butterfly
My Trusty Sewing Machine
Pearls and Ribbon from my stash box

I feel a bit bad today as the heart isn't showing up too well in the photographs.  I promise that there is a one there folks .. .. it is just very hard to see (unless you know where it is or have the card in your hand).   It isn't as if it is small either!!

Catch you again soon.

Love

Lovely card Jules and gorgeous ribbon with a beautifully tied bow but I suppose you have had lots of practice with those now. Mine always look scrabby so I cheat! Love those butterflies as well. Pauline xx

FABULOUS card Jules - love the paper you used and the bow is stunning. The butterflies and tag over the ribbon are totally inspirational - for that read ideas to pinch :)

Ahem, I spotted the heart - and if I can then I reckon anyone can!

Hugs, Di xx

Hi Jules

Glad you've found a way to make your evenings less hectic, just make sure you don't get indigestion whilst posting and eating your lunch.

Adore the ribbon on your card, it's wonderful and think the way you have mounted the sentiment over the top is brill. Thanks for the inspiration.

I see the heart, it's a hard one today but with the help of my spec's, I spotted it :)

Have a lovely day, big hugs xx
