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.

Hi Everyone

Well we have just had the  most horrendous rain storm .. .. with the water flowing down the gutters like a mini river!!!  Glad I am snug and warm indoors!!!!

I wasn't sure I was going to make it today.  It has been a full on wedding work day .. .. but I just couldn't give in without a touch of image colouring!!  LOL!!!

So here is my little share for today:

This used:

Image:  Penny Black "1684K" Bubbles n Squeak
Sentiment:  Computer generated using font Zipty Do
Backing Papers:  Pink Petticoat "Gingham" and "Bubbles"
My Trust Sewing Machine
Dew Drops (stuck on with Glossy Accents)
Glamour Dust
Diamond Stickles
Ribbon from my stash box

and that is it!!

I am toddling over to enter this into the Penny Black Saturday Challenge where this month "Anything Goes"!! (As long as it fits in with the rules of the challenge of course).

Have a great rest of the evening.

Off to the bath now.  Hope there aren't any mice in there floating around in my soap dish!!  LOL!!!

Very pretty card Jules and I love that PB stamp. We are suffering with gale force winds and it sounds like the roof is going to blow off any minute!! Enjoy your bath - you'll probably only see the spiders which crawl up the plug hole!! Pauline xx

Adorable card.

Di said...

Fabulous Jules - and the little dewdrops look just like escaped bubbles :) The only thing to worry about mice in your soap dish is - will they be punting along using your toothbrush. Yet another stunning card.

Hugs, Di xx

Debs said...

Adorable card Jules - such a sweet image - so perfectly coloured.
To answer your question/statement - there definitely isn't really any room for any more stash - unless you count the floor space - where I am already starting to build quite a tower :o) Soon my little crafty haven will look like those rooms that hoarders live in lol!!!
Have a fab weekend.
