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.

SKETCH SATURDAY

Hi Everyone

I hope you are all well and have had a really lovely Easter.

My ribbon supplier has been closed for the whole of the Easter break so my hubby's last day off work saw us winging our way to collect goodies for making wedding samples for new interested "happy couples" and also for the couples who have placed actual orders over the course of the last week.  

I need to hit the ground running tomorrow that's for sure as things are hotting up nicely in the old House of Hearts!!!  Hubby will be back at work too so no distractions there LOL!!!  

Apart from all the wedding work I also need to get some general makes done and I used the inspiration from the Sketch Saturday Challenge to create tonight's share:




This used:

Image:  Penny Black "3947K" Day-Dreams
Sentiment:  Pink Petticoat "Tiny Everyday Sentiments"
Backing Papers:  Pink Petticoat "Colour Pallette Update" printed in Sweet Apricot
Flower Die:  Joy Crafts
Diamond Stickles
ProMarkers
Brads, Ribbon and Seed Beads from my stash box

If you fancy playing along then this is the sketch you need to follow



I am just hoping my corner ribbons count.  If not then just delete my entry ladies .. .. I will understand.

Catch you again soon folks.

Love

OMG - fabulous as always Jules!! And (whisper) I know what you mean about a chap around the house - much as we love them don't they always stick their head round the door to speak JUST as you have a carefully cut piece of sticky or a gem to place? Do they KNOW this? I suspect so :))

Love, Di xx

Brenda said...

Wow, this is just a beautiful card! I love the stamped image, so pretty and I love that you added the beads and sparkle to this image! Love the yellow gingham card base paper, I so love gingham-it just reminds me of country and I am such a country bumpkin!! lol I love the bright pink flowers at the corner and the bright pink bow at the bottom, that sudden pop of color really grabs the eye! The the little bit of the bright pink on the sentiment, well this is just a lovely, lovely card Jules, but no surprise there! I'm such a fan of your cards. Hugs!
