A very warm welcome to my teeny, tiny part of the huge world of blogging. This is where I 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 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.

Elzybells Challenge 15

Hi Everyone

I thought I would try out the Elzybells Challenge tonight (as a reward for ironing enough shirts to last at least another week).

Here is my creation:

To make this card I used:

Image and sentiment - Elzybells
Patterned papers - Funky Fairys Perfect Pinks Download
Diamond Stickles
Threading Water punch from Fiskars
Brads and ribbon from my stash

The image is coloured with Whispers pens and paper piecing (also from the Perfect Pinks Download).

I love making baby cards - probably because I love babies!!

Only two more sleeps to the NEC!!!

Love Jules xx

Hi Jules,

What a gorgeous baby card. My brother's first grandchild is due at the end of April (Err I think that's when) and we know it's a little girl but I'm not tempting fate until she's safely here. Baby cards for my special people are always made at the last minute.

I agree with you though they are lovely cards to make.
