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

Happy Wednesday !!!!

I'm here at a much more respectable time today.

Thank you for all your lovely comments on the "lucky dip" card I posted last night .. .. it is cheating a little to do the lucky dip from my Penny Black Stamp drawer though because let's face it I'm not going to pull a bad one out am I?  Every stamp in that drawer is super scrummy.

I never realised that the image I had used was no longer readily available .. .. I will try not to flaunt it quite so much in future .. .. nothing worse than seeing an image you would like to own but can't get your mitts on!!!

Anyway, back to today and my offering for The Papertake Weekly Challenge this week .. .. where it is a "free for all" along with a sketch. However if you don't fancy the sketch then you can use any of the others from their lovely array.

So here is my offering

 This used:

Image: Docrafts Forever Friends (not sure what the name is - no clues on the stamp itself)
Sentiment:  Pink Petticoat "Tiny New Baby Sentiments"
Backing Papers:  DocraftsForever Friends "New Arrival"
Ribbons and buttons from my stash box
My Trusty Sewing Machine
Diamond Stickles

and here is Sketch No. #78 which is the one I have worked to:

So that is me for today.  

Our youngest Son is coming for dinner tonight ahead of the big move on Saturday so I wanted to get ahead of the game (his cupboards and fridge/freezer is quickly starting to look like Old Mother Hubbard's!!). 

Have a great rest of the day everyone and I will catch you again tomorrow.

scrappymo! said...

Wonderful card...I love when I see something I have in my cupboards that you have used on your cards...Often I don't use things I own as I can't think of a way to use them...
You have now solved the problem of how to use the alphabet papers I have collected and never used!!!

I even bought some of that ribbon after seeing it on your blog but I'm a bit of a ribbon hoarder so it has been added to the stash...sigh...teehee

Love this pretty card Jules. So soft and sweet!
