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.

Hi Everyone

Happy Friday .. .. ahead of what I hope will be a happy weekend for everyone.

I got back from my Mum's earlier than normal today so I thought I would have a play with the sketch over at Sketch Saturday this week .. .. in the hope of being able to link up before the remaining minutes had lapsed!

What a challenge!!

Card made and photographed in record time .. .. and what happens .. .. my watermarking programme decided to throw a wobbly and lock up and then Google Chrome crashed twice .. .. so I missed the deadline by a few minutes :-(

But never mind.  At least I have a card made that I can share and it is in a different style thanks to the sketch.

This used:

Image:  Penny Black "4082H" To Cake Moment
Sentiment:  Pink Petticoat
Backing Papers:  Fancy Pants Designs "Swagger"
Martha Stewart Punch:  Embossed Zig Zag
Josy Rose:  Nail Heads
Diamond Stickles

and that is it.

So what can I say about you eagle-eyed heart spotters .. .. other than you are just too good!!!  Have I become predictable and unimaginative I ask myself  LOL!!

Lots of you found last night's heart in record time .. .. but a few of you struggled so I will put those lovely heart searchers out of their misery and let you know that it is hiding on the bottom of that lovely die cut.

Have a lovely evening and a great weekend.

Hoping for some decent weather here.  Lots of washing, window cleaning and gardening needed as a matter urgency!

Oh dear~ computer, computer, computer! Something always goes wrong when you need it the most! Especially when you are in a rush! I know exactly how you feel. I am so glad you still share the card with us because it is so cute. I love the neutral look! A card that can be given for either female or male. ^_^

Good morning Jules,
Another stunning card, love that sweet image and your fantastic design.
Funny how things seem to multiply when one goes wrong it all goes to pot!!
Thank you for pointing out the "heart" I for one could not find it. Must be this "holiday mode" thing.
Have a great weekend

Hi Jules,
well thank you for sharing it with us anyway!
It's absolutely gorgeous as usual.

The tiny heart did keep me looking yesterday :)

As for watermarking photo's I am so lazy that I don't do it. I did buy a watermark ages ago but can't seem to work out how to use it - Doh!!

Hope you have a fab weekend.xx

Louise said...
