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 Challenge - A Gift

Happy Easter Sunday!

Not much time for crafting today as I needed to look willing and help hubby in the garden. We both ache now after lopping and trimming a rather large row of conifer trees!!!

I have managed a little craft session this afternoon though and have done the Penny Black Challenge - which today was to make "a gift".

Well what better gift than a pocket full of chocolate!!!

Here is what I made - and it smells delish!! Only two little chocolate eggs popped in my mouth - honest! (and two into my hubby's).

To make this little gift (which has a ribbon attached so it would actually hang from a branch, door handle or hook) I used:

Image - Penny Black 3864F "Bohemian"
Backing Paper - Pink Petticoat (Spring Wishes - loving this set at the mo).
Woodware Punch - Multi Sunflower
Bling - wire - ribbon and peel-offs from the stash box
and the old Diamond Stickles which has made an Easter appearance too

No problem in finding the heart today!!

I hope everyone has had a lovely day - and a great Bank Holiday t0morrow too!! Yippee.

Love Jules xx
