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 Wednesday!

I hope you are all having a good week.  Once again mine is flying by in the blink of an eye!!

Teeny, tiny Tuesday never materialised .. .. but I have raided that huge pile of white card off-cuts to create this:


This used:

Image:  Hero Arts/Sizzix Stamp and Die Set "657776" Floral
Image: Stampin' Up "Gorgeous Grunge"
Sentiment:  Digistamp Boutique "Sentiment Bundle - Everyday"
Crafters Companion Diesire Dies "Scalloped Tags"
MFT Die Set:  Blueprints 14
Distress Ink Pads:  Peacock Feathers, Shabby Shutters, Wild Honey, Spiced Marmalade, Barn Door and Black Soot
Ribbon, Cord, Charm and Pearls from my crafty stash box

The focal point of this card is actually the tag inspiration for the Tag You're It! Challenge this week.

This is the inspiration for using as a starting point:

Isn't it just gorgeous!  I took my inspiration from the beautiful colour palette, the painted background and fab layout.  

I am also going to run over to enter my creation into Pixie's Snippets Playground Challenge as everything I have used (apart from the card base) was created from off-cuts of white card.

So that is me for today.

Hopefully catch you again soon.

Love Jules xx
