I hope that everyone has had a good, Good Friday. Is everyone full of fish and hot cross buns?????
I have tried to have a "clean the house up a bit" day today, ahead of what I hope is going to be a "craft fest" bank holiday weekend. The football fixtures have been kind and guarantee me at least two mega days.
I decided to get some of the housework out of the way early on in the holiday so that I could concentrate better. Then once I got bored of that I decided to make a card.. .. .. ..
This card used:
Image - Hero Arts H4772 Collage Friend
Background paper - Pink Petticoat Daisy, Daisy Papers
Woodware Punch - Multi Sunflower
Paper Heart punch (love this little punch to pieces)
Strip of Papermania Vellum
Hot fix gems and ribbon from the stash box
This was quite a simple card once I got started. I have paper pieced parts of the image to add a delicate touch of colour.
I decided to invest in a "Hot Fix Wand" for attaching the small gems as I was struggling too much trying to attach them with glue. My fingers aren't as nimble as they used to be. It is quite clever how the wand works - I just need a bit of practise. Some of the gems have gone a bit "off centre" but hey - that could just be the way it was meant to be!!!!
So you can expect a bit more "bling" on my creations for a while.
Believe me there is a heart there - it just takes a bit more finding than usual!!
Enjoy the rest of today.
Love Jules xx
- 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.
