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.

Hi Everyone

Had a little delivery from The Glitter Pot today. One of my favourite places to shop (both "window shopping" and actual shopping).

I knew I was going to love the set I have used today well before it actually arrived. I stroked it a few times at the NEC earlier this year and somehow managed to walk away. But you know how it is - some things just stay in your brain, eating away, until you eventually get to own them.

This set will stay special for a long while .. .. and having used it once I know it will be used lots and lots.

For this creation I used:

Image - Woodware "Groovy Cats"
Backing paper - DCWV "Wedding Prints"
Woodware punch for the skeleton fish
American Craft Elements Ribbon - from my TYI prize (thanks Anne xx)
Bling and brads from my stash box

I coloured the image with Promarker pens and tried to tone the image in with the ribbon. I just know I will be making this card (or variations of it) again.

I am looking forward to the weekend and to the Penny Black Challenge tomorrow (love, love, love this challenge). Just can't believe another week has flown by.

Catch you again soon. Thanks for stopping by.

Love Jules xx

Lovely card Jules, great image, perfect for you with that collar! And thank you for reminding me that I don't just have to use the Wedding Prints paper for wedding cards! Nicki, xx.
