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.

Penny Black Saturday - Week 41

Hi Everyone

Well here it is. The card that made me "face my demon"! Doodling!! (It has took me three attempts to even spell it right let alone do it!!!)

I used one of my favourite Penny Black Stamps that I usually reserve for "men cards" and even then I felt the doodling spoilt it. But I HAD to do it for the challenge.

I often just do small faux stitching but it felt like cheating if this was all I did - so this card is taking "doodling" to its extreme for me.

Can't say the challenge made me fall in love with doodling but it is something that I perhaps need to practise more.

So here is my doodling card:

To make this card I used:

Image - Penny Black Floating Dreams Stamp
Backing Paper - Funky Hand
Woodware Super Punch Multi Sunflower
Circa Funky Heart Punch
Whispers Pen for "doin' the doodling"

Hope everyone is having a good week.

Is anyone looking forward to the new series of The Apprentice or is it just me?

Catch you all again soon

Love Jules xx

I love this card Jules. That little mouse image is just perfect for mens cards and your doodling is just perfect too.

Lovely card Jules, I only did minimal doodling too. That image is so cute, (nudge, nudge, wink, wink!!!)

Hubby loves the apprentice, I always listen from my craft room initially and within 3 weeks am glued to the TV with him.
