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.

Tag You're It Challenge - Week 49

Hi Everyone

Here I am again. This time with the Tag You're It Challenge.

Never made a tag before - other than Christmas labels for all the parcels at that special time of year, which I won't mention too much as we have only just recovered from the last one.

We have a family tradition in my house which started a few years ago and my Sis and her family, along with me and mine, all gather around one very messy dining room table and enjoy what we call "Label Day". Each year we get a little better at what we create but still spend too long on each creation. It is a great fun day. (The men are usually watching football!!).

Anyway, today I am trying the Tag You're it Challenge which I really enjoyed. They are also looking for 2 new "Taggers" for the Design Team so if anyone is interested then it will be well worth a visit.

Here is my "first Tag". The theme being "Time for Tea".

To create this I used:

Stamped and embossed crackle glaze image from Inkadinkado
Patterned paper - Little Sizzles "Country"
Computer generated sentiments
Machine stitched mulberry heart containing punched heart tea-leaves
Cuttlebug star
Ribbons, brads, eyelet and flowers from my stash box

So, one more sleep until the NEC - Yay!!!. If anyone has already been then I hope you enjoyed yourselves and left some goodies for me.

Have a good weekend everyone.

Love Jules xx
